Make the most of your equity

One of the greatest advantages of investing in property is its high leveraging potential, which means it allows you to borrow money to finance another investment.

Accessing equity which you’ve built up in your property is often something people will do when they want to purchase a property they couldn’t otherwise afford.

However, it is not as simple as it sounds and good “leveraging” has a lot to do with timing as property investment cycles are influenced by a range of variables.

This means that experience and discipline are very important because there will be times when it is more sensible to retire debt.

Although leveraging can be a very sound wealth creation strategy, everyone’s financial circumstances are different, so make sure you seek out professional advice before putting your plans into action.
