What about Rentvesting?

If buying your own home still seems out of reach, consider buying a home for someone else instead.

‘Rentvesting’has become a buzzword lately.

It’s a brilliant strategy for those who either can’t afford to buy where they want to live.

Essentially, rentvesting is buying an investment property where you can afford it in order to get on the property ladder, while you continue to rent where you want to live.

That way, you can be close to employment or lifestyle factors you enjoy, while someone else pays off the mortgage for you.

Rentvesting is also a strategy that suits those who want to buy a property but need the flexibility to move around for employment.

One of the big differences between buying a rental property and your own home is the tax benefits.

Investment properties boomerang money back to you through depreciation, negative gearing, and other deductible expenses that can really boost your financial standing to lenders.

It could be the extra weight you need to tip the scales.

You might choose an investment property in an affordable bracket; you might choose a home you’d like to live in one day but can’t afford to just yet.

Either way, having a tenant paying down your mortgage, while you rent elsewhere, means you’re holding a tangible asset that’s progressively growing in value.


The earlier you start in the property market, the more time, leverage, and compounding will work for you.

Also, buying a property that’s within your means will make saving for a deposit an easier and more achievable task.

Using equity to springboard into purchasing other properties is also a proven and time-honored strategy used by many of Australia’s 1.8millioninvestors to grow wealth.

Millennials aren’t an exception to the rule.

Times have changed, but the method is the same: save, sacrifice, and have a plan that sets you up for a financially secure future.
