Presentation by Kris Pedersen and Ryan Smuts, Kris Pedersen Mortgages & Insurance      


Existing equity is a way to fund rental investments. With the last few years being so generous to Auckland homeowners, it stands to reason that many investors would be thinking about putting that equity to good use. Before you do that, however, you should have a good understanding of the implications, risks and benefits of using the equity of your home to fund a purchase. 

Dial into this webinar to hear experienced mortgage advisors and property investors, Kris Pedersen and Ryan Smuts, talk about the ins and outs of using your home to fund your next rental purchase. 

Talking points
  • How it would work - the actual mechanics of buying an investment property using the equity of your home; 
  • Benefits vs drawbacks - overview of the risks and rewards of this particular strategy at this point of the market; 
  • Cash-flow forecast - how would your cash-flow likely track in the short, medium and long term; 
  • Worst case scenario - what do you stand to lose if things take a bad turn.

Kris Pedersen is an experienced investor, broker and trusted industry speaker on matters concerning property strategy and financing. He is the owner-director of Kris Pedersen Mortgages & Insurance, a regular content contributor for the APIA and a passionate industry advocate.
