Leveraging the equity in your property requires careful planning and strategic decision-making at every step of the way.

Step 1 – Check Your Equity:

Calculate your home's value, subtract the lender's margin and your loan balance to determine available equity.

Step 2 – Do Your Homework:

Research your desired commercial property to minimise investment risk. Know what you want to buy to minimise investment risk, know where you want to buy and what sort of return you want for your property (remember the higher the return the higher the risk)

Step 3 – Double Check Your Borrowing Power:

Assess your borrowing capacity based on targeted returns.

Step 4 – Get Your Buying and Borrowing Structure Right:

Consult with an accountant taking into consideration GST, gearing, and capital gains implications along with any ongoing reporting obligations.

Step 5 – Get a Good Lawyer:

Get a real good one! An accredited or experienced commercial real estate lawyer can successfully navigate lease terms and risks as well as impart some seriously good advice

Step 6 – Engage a Professional Property Manager:

Hire a specialist commercial property manager to oversee rent collection, expense management, maintenance, and lease renewal.
