Let me let you in on a little secret! For generations, smart investors have understood how to access the equity in their home or investment properties to continue accumulating more property and creating more wealth.
When you see people who continue to buy multiple investment properties and grow a substantial property portfolio, it is more than likely this is how they are doing it. Assuming you have the cashflow to service the debt and you have a sufficient amount of equity in your existing property or properties, you can borrow against this equity and use the cash as a deposit for your next property.
Rinse and repeat a handful of times throughout your working life and you can see the magic happen right before your eyes!
