Survival Strategy #2
Negative gearing is the dumbest idea…especially in the coming 5 to 10 years where we can’t rely on big citywide growth any more. An oversupply of stock coming onto the market will hold back growth in many, many areas… so taking a known annual loss, as a bet on the prices moving is a pretty dumb idea right now.
You can use positively geared property to not only pay for themselves and give great capital gains because of site selection (and they also give huge tax deductions).
A property with positive cash flow and $15,000/year in tax deductions is very achievable…and remember, the deduction is a guaranteed return.

As a property investor who is building a portfolio, it’s vital that you have access to your equity whenever you need it.
There’s nothing more frustrating than finding that perfect new property to purchase, only for it to be held up – or worse still, lost completely – because your finances weren’t in good shape.
