AN ALTERNATIVE STRATEGY PAY INTEREST ONLY HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS?
WHY BORROW? Because loan interest rates are often lower than rental yields - i.e. cashflow generation Because property increases in value
CONSIDER THE FACTS City analysts are predicting a 100% rise in house prices over the next 10 - 15 years Sounds too good to be true doesn't it? When did you purchase your first house? How much did you pay for it? How much would that house sell for now? Get the message ?
CONCLUSION If borrowing to invest into property makes sense why be so eager to repay? Why not utilise cashflow to maintain your properties or for further expansion? ? Why not expand to the maximum and sell part of your portfolio in years to come when you wish to repay your loans? LET INFLATION REPAY YOUR LOANS

HOW DOES IT WORK? Mr Smith has a portfolio valued at £500,000 Present loan £300,000 Term - 10 years Almost 100% of rental income is used to service the loan!
FIRSTLY HE SWITCHES TO INTEREST ONLY.... So that he can enjoy his profits now, and allow inflation to repay his loan
WHAT NEXT? Mr Smith remortgaged his portfolio to the maximum - i.e. 80% of £500,000 is £400,000 £300,000 of this was used to repay existing loans This left him with £100,000 Using his FORWARD BUYING FACILITY the £100,000 was regarded as his 20% deposit which allowed him to purchase further properties costing £500,000
THE OUTCOME Mr Smith has doubled his portfolio and increased his net income Inflation will increase the rent roll as well as the value of the portfolio but not the loan or the cost of it Therefore, will Mr Smith’s good fortune continue ? !!
CAN IT GET BETTER? THE MONEY CENTRE has negotiated exclusive deals with lenders offering: 80% Loan to value Interest only - if required No compulsory insurances Discounted fixed interest rates Take a regular look at the rates and terms on our web site
