Episode 010 | Tax Depreciation (Case Study)

Here are the Case Studies mentioned in Episode 010 | Tax Depreciation of The Property Couch:

Tax Depreciation Case Study 1:

A $600,000 – $700,000 period home with a rental income of $22,880 per annum

An investor owns a period home purchased for between $600,000 and $700,000 with a rental income of $440 per week.
Expenses for their property such as interest, rates and management fees totaled to $40,950. A depreciation schedule from specialist Quantity Surveyors BMT Tax Depreciation found the investor would be entitled to claim $9,880 in depreciation in the first financial year. By claiming depreciation deductions, BMT was able to help the investor to turn their negative cash flow into a more positive one, reducing the costs involved in holding the property by $3,655.
The following scenario shows the investors cash flow with and without the depreciation claim:

Episode 004 | Four Pillars of Mastery – Borrowing Power

Episode 004 of The Property Couch is a continuation of our Four Pillars of Mastery series. Last episode we talked about Cash Flow Management and how it is the first step to your property investment journey. Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley also shared a Flow of Money diagram to illustrate their points. In this episode, they talked about the Borrowing Power. Once you know how much surplus you have at the end of each month then the next step it to know how high is your borrowing power so you can go ahead and buy an investment property. But it’s not as easy as going into a bank or a mortgage broker and get a loan set up. It’s never easy, isn’t it?

If you are serious about building wealth via property investment, then you need to make sure you plan ahead in terms of choosing the right package and structuring your loan correctly.

Episode 003 | Four Pillars of Mastery – Cash Flow Management

In this Episode of The Property Couch, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley talk about the four areas that each property investor needs to master. Property Investment is not just a transaction. There is a science behind it and in this episode, Bryce and Ben disclose the Property Investment Formula and how an investor can use it. They started off with the most complicated area: Cash Flow Management. Why is it the most complicated? That’s because cash flow management requires a lot of planning, observation and discipline from the investors themselves. In other parts of the Four Pillars of Mastery, you can get help from professionals but in this area, you need to be able to do it yourself because the advisor can only give you an indication not your actual number. Cash flow management demands a lot of time and effort but it is the first step to building your property portfolio and very likely the most important step. Listen to this podcast to find out more.
