For First Time Property Investors
Buying a rental property is a great investment option for many reasons, including:
Low volatility investment option
Capital Growth & Income potential
You are investing in a physical asset that will always be in demand.
For these reasons and more, investment properties are one of NZ’s most popular investment options.

Grow Your Portfolio
Every investment property you add to your portfolio means greater levels of complexity when it comes to finance. Even if you are only looking to assess your options, the level of paperwork and detail required by financiers can be overwhelming - especially with the service levels banks typically provide for retail investors of any scale.
At Laedan, we handle this process for you - spend your time assessing your next property investment option, not dealing with the banks.

Common Questions on
Property Investment Finance
Can I get 100% financing on an investment property?
Yes this is possible, but typically you are going to need to secure the loan you borrow for the investment property purchase with another form of equity. The most common 100% financed investment property purchases come from those who are mortgage-free on their owner-occupied home and are able to use this equity for an investment property loan. However it is also possible to achieve 100% financing with a guarantee from a third party, which is secured by a property with sufficient equity. This is, of course, a much more complicated finance structure.
What is the current interest rate for investment property?
A good source for looking at interest rates in general is interest.co.nz - however the rates provided here are only indicative retail rates which may or may not apply for your investment property purchase / portfolio.
If you’d like to get a better assessment of the market interest rates are for investment properties, feel free to give our team a call to talk through what rates similar investors to you are achieving.
How much deposit is required for an investment property?
The deposit required for an investment property in NZ has been a moving metric of the past few years since the Reserve Bank introduced Loan-to-Value Ratio restrictions. For investment properties, the deposit required has floated between 30% - 40% of the investment properties value (i.e. for purchasing a $1,000,000 property, you would need at least $300,000 - $400,000 in deposit).
Remember - deposit doesn’t necessarily mean cash. This can also be comprised of equity in other properties you own, or equity in guarantor’s property as well. This of course can make securing finance more complicated - but that is exactly what advisers like Laedan are here to help with!
How do I buy an investment property in NZ?
If you aren’t able to purchase an investment property outright (like 99% of people!), you will likely need to look at financing options.
The first step here is going to be finding out how much you can borrow which depends on a myriad of factors, including (but not limited to):
Your household income
Your household expenses
Your cash deposit available
Equity available in property you own, based on acceptable valuations
The valuation and potential rental income of the house you are purchasing
The way these factors work together to determine how much you can borrow is quite complicated and can change from bank to bank, financier to financier. For this reason, we recommend getting in touch with a adviser like Laedan who can talk you through how each financier may look at your borrowing potential based on your personal situation.
