Don’t jump into negative gearing without looking at the future first

The reason people opt for negative gearing? Most often it is for the immediate tax benefits and prospect of capital appreciation over time. This tends to make negative gearing appeal to property speculators and people with a large tax bill.

    Negative Gearing does not mean a property will cost money from the investor's pocket. By using the Income Tax Withholding Variation Form, a property can be negatively geared but have positive cashflow, especially where there is allowance for depreciation. A slight cost per week to offset capital growth can still see people realise greater than a 1000% return on their money. Do not be so negative!
