Why will leveraged property perform so well in this current environment?

First and foremost, the lower the interest rate, the lower the cost repaying the debt. If the Reserve Bank sets rates at zero per cent, it is likely that banks will not be able to charge much interest at all.

As inflation sets in, the prices of goods and services, including property and rental prices, will rise.​

The one thing that won’t go up in value is old mortgage debt.​

We have all heard stories from our parents and grandparents about how much they bought the family home for 30, 40 or 50 years ago. My parents purchased their home for $13,000 in the late sixties. It is now worth over a million dollars. It wouldn’t take long to wipe out this debt in today’s money.

The difference now is that inflation is likely to come about in shorter cycles thanks to interest rates being the lowest they have ever been and the looming threat of another GFC on the horizon.


Since the value of both the property and its rental income are subject to inflation, and debt is not, quicker cycles of inflation will provide an opportunity to pay down debt over a shorter period of time.

This may mean that within 20 years of purchasing your investment property, the weekly rent has gone up so much that the debt you incurred at the time of purchase will be like nothing. It will be a small debt, easy to pay off with only a year or two of rental income.​

This will allow investors to achieve a passive income stream over a shorter period of time than ever before. As inflation surges on, the value of rent will rise – allowing investors to make money in inflated terms.

In a nutshell, this process uses leveraging to transfer savings into an asset base that pays an inflated income.​
