Property Investment Strategies

Rental Income vs. Capital Gain

There are two main property investment strategies each differing from each other, focusing around the timing of your profits and the benefits of each. These strategies are:

1. Financial gain during the term of the loan; and

2. Capital growth.

Investing for the purpose of generating rental income would require your rental income to exceed your costs, resulting in a small return on your investment each week. That is, you make a financial gain as the loan term progresses. Conversely, if your rental income is less than your loan repayments you will receive a tax deduction and a possible capital gain on sale.
