Structure your mortgage for a more secure, more profitable property investment
Mortgages Made Easy is the definitive guide to getting the optimal mortgage for your home or investment property purchase. Bestselling author, mortgage broker, and financial advisor Bruce Brammall, aka Debt Man, walks you through the process in his trademark style, giving you all the information you need to buy a property and finance it right. Success in real estate is as much about having the right debt structure as it is about buying quality property, and this book shows you how to build the financial fortification that is critical to your long-term security. You'll learn how to set yourself up for success before you even begin to house hunt, and how to approach investment properties differently from your own home purchase. Brammall guides you step by step through the loan and purchase, equipping you with the knowledge you need to make your property work in your favor.
Property and debt are inseparable in the beginning, but what most people don't know is that accruing debt correctly plays a crucial role in the financial success of the property. This book explains it all, with practical advice and guidance throughout the process.
- Learn why debt is necessary and property is so popular
- Navigate the big choices that buying property entails
- Discover the critical differences between homes and investment properties
- Get mortgage-ready and examine loan structure options
Given his qualifications, Brammall intrinsically understands the point where property, debt, and investment intersect, as well as their broader role in your wealth-creation plans. Your home is your castle, and a major part of your future security - it's important to set it up right. For savvy advice from an expert perspective, Mortgages Made Easy is the property buyer's mortgage manual.
