This is called negatively geared property. Finding positive cash flow properties is a challenge but it is possible. New properties, where depreciation benefits are available in the early years.
Most Australians are now eligible to establish their own Self-Managed Super Fund (SMSF) and this super fund can also take out a loan to buy an investment property. The reality is that you now have the opportunity to make your superannuation funds work much harder for you giving you the chance of a better lifestyle in retirement.

You will most likely spend a lot of time and effort researching the best investment property to ensure that you get the highest returns and capital growth.

The reality is that the way you structure your loan is vitally important to the success and returns on the investment.
There are many types of property investment including apartments, townhouses, house & land packages, land development and property development.
