And if you have a mortgage with surplus funds sitting in a home loan offset account returning the same rate of interest as your mortgage, it’s hardly exciting in the current environment. Investors limited in terms of how much they can borrow, potentially with tens of thousands of dollars sitting idle, are likely feeling the frustration as well. Because the key to building a substantial property portfolio is how quickly you can move on to your first, or next, property opportunity. The good news is, that with access to the correct strategy and support, you can still ensure your savings are working hard for you.
