If you're wondering how much you can borrow against your existing properties, check out our calculator below. It will help you determine how much equity you have available across the properties you own, that can then be leveraged towards purchasing more property (useable equity). The calculator factors in current LVR restrictions for owner occupied properties, existing investment properties, and new build properties, and gives you the maximum purchase price you could afford for an existing property vs. a new build.
Note: This calculator only determines the potential equity for a deposit. Property investment feasibility is subject to servicing ability and other core policy requirements. Want more information? Download our free Property Investment Guide below.
