Generally banks will lend up to 80% of the value of a
property and the rule of thumb is that you can afford an investment property
that is four times the value of your useable equity.
Lenders will also take into account your income, your age,
your dependants and how many additional debts you may have.
If you don’t have any funds outside your home equity, it may
be risky to use every last cent of your usable equity to invest in a property.
