Episode 186 | Q & A – Should You Pay Down the Principle Loan When Interest Rates are Low? Are Multiple Offset Accounts a Good Idea? PLUS The Step-by-Step Process to Buy an Investment Property!

“The people’s podcast” is EXACTLY that today folks! Because here’s the deal… it’s full-on, gold-packed Q & A Day!!

And we’re diving headfirst into…

  1. Offset accounts —is it a good idea to have multiple offset accounts? And should you offset your highest loan or the oldest loan?
  2. Investing in outer suburbs versus inner suburbs
  3. The step-by-step process of buying an investment property
  4. Buying a home (PPOR) versus an investment property (IP)
  5. Lending — should you pay down the principle of an investment property when interest rates are low?
  6. Why should you join PICA?
  7. TWO amazing LifeHacks from our community!

Oh folks, we don’t want to pick favourites — but even we’ll admit it — these are some solid questions from our listeners!

From start (Mindset Minute) to “Knowledge is empowering, but only if you act on it”… this episode is ALL YOURS!

Questions from Kyrillos:

  1. If you’re purchasing more than 1 property, can you get more than one offset account? And if so do you split all the cash between them, or is it wiser to pour in all the cash in the offset against a larger loan?
  2. To do with LocationScore — I’ve gone through and created a Spreadsheet of all of the suburbs within 50km of Brisbane’s CBD and found that most of the better-scored suburbs are actually quite far, in terms of the asset selection criteria you guys talk about. I understand that LocationScore is more of a demand versus supply score, so if you’re a Buy and Hold investor, at a suburb level, is buying in a better location still the better option?
  3. Would you be able to run through the process of buying a property? Could you run through a quick, step by step process of what happens when (research, when should you get building and pest inspection etc)?

Question from Cam:

My partner and I are wanting to buy 1st home. We are 27 years old, have $100,000 saved and are in our 3rd year of full time employment with a combined income of $150K. Should we be stretching ourselves to buy in the area we love FIRST, or should we be buying an investment property and hope to build equity and use it to purchase our Principal Place of Residence down the track?

 

Question from Sonya:

Hi guys, love the podcast. There’s a lot of talk out there about the risk of Australians switching from Interest Only to Principal and Interest loans. I’m currently paying Interest Only, with no interest to refinance as I am starting up my own business and currently don’t have any other income coming in. Half of my loan is fixed, the other half is variable. My question is: should I pay down the principle of my investment property while the interest rates are low to control the risk of a high interest rate at a later date and the Principal and Interest I would have to pay when my loan switches over? I’m less interested in the tax advantages, and am more interested in controlling risk and reducing my overall repayments. I know that the longer my Interest Only repayment is, the higher my repayments will have to be when it switches over — and that doesn’t sound great to me. I’m sure this, and the impact of Interest Only lending, is of interest to other listeners, so I hope you can provide insight. Love your work again. Cheers!
