  • Residential vs Commercial Formula 1 Finance
    pays most of the property expenses Goods and services tax GST applies when you buy a commercial property so allow an extra 10 percent on the property s purchase price which you may be eligible to claim back as a tax credit Both commercial and residential options have tax benefits such as negative gearing depreciation and reduced capital gains tax rates Risk Commercial property value can be hard to predict and demand tends to fluctuate with the business cycle which is why it is usually regarded as a higher risk asset than residential property To manage this risk lenders commonly charge higher interest rates on commercial loans higher upfront and ongoing fees and lower loan to value ratios which means borrowers have to come up with significant deposits Loan terms are typically shorter for commercial property and it is not uncommon for lenders to require regular review of the borrower s business financials Tenants It can be harder to find tenants for commercial properties but on the flip side commercial tenants tend to pay more attention to maintaining the property as part of their business Both types of properties have their pros and cons so it is advisable to research well before you make your investment decision Please give us a call for any questions we haven t yet answered Brett Colley 365 Posts Brett has been involved in management in the finance industry for over 13 years Brett s diverse experience in finance real estate developments and all facets of the construction industry confirms Formula 1 Finance to be an innovative professional finance broking firm On May 17 2012 Enconomy Finance News Financial goals House prices Wealth Comments Off Comments are closed Finance News RBA rate announcement Banks Mining Towns and Rental Yields Houses outperform units in capitals Positive
