Property investment has become an increasingly hot topic, with the intent of earning a return on the investment from resale or rental income. Buying property is a major purchase, but choosing to invest in property, whether it’s your primary home, rental property, or renovation project, can be beneficial for several reasons.

1. Property is a tangible investment - Your asset should provide an additional sense of security.
2. Increased value is important - The real estate market has skyrocketed in value, especially in major cities.
3. Returns can be high - In the form of continuous rental income or by selling for a profit.

Options for Financing
A down payment for an investment property could be 20% of the purchase or more and is affected by things like your credit score, cash flow of the property, debt-to-income ratio, property type, plus more. The larger the down payment you make, the better likelihood for a low interest rate and favorable terms.
The most common ways to acquire property include:

  • Buying; having a fund or saving over time and using it towards the purchase of the property. Do you have a savings account tailored to you? Get saving today!
  • Financing; taking out a loan and having a monthly payment. Getting pre-approved for a loan lets you know how much you can afford!
    • Home Equity Line of Credit (use the equity in your home as a revolving line of credit at a favorable interest rate)
    • Owner financing (arrange a deal with the home seller)
  • Transferring; receiving property as a gift or transfer from someone
