You’ve probably heard about negative gearing before. It was all over the news during the election.'
So many investors were up in arms about the potential for restrictions to get placed on this property strategy.
They argued that restricting negative gearing would lead to less rental stock on the market.
But most importantly, they claimed that it would hurt investors...
...They said that no negative gearing means investors can’t take advantage of various tax breaks.
But it doesn’t tell the whole story.
The simple fact is that negative gearing is the investment strategy of the past.
These are the two reasons why.
Reason #1 - You Take a Loss Every Month
The negative gearing strategy means that you buy with the expectation of making a loss that you can claim back later.
That might work for people with a lot of disposable income.
However, it means that you have to cover the costs of the property out of your own pocket until it appreciates in value.
You’re taking a loss every month...
...which has a direct effect on your lifestyle.
And you don’t even want to think about the consequences...
...if the appreciation you expect doesn’t happen…
Reason #2 - You Take on So Much Risk
If appreciation doesn’t occur, you’ve sunk your money into a bad investment.
It never comes good...
...which means all of the tax benefits in the world don’t matter.
You’re not going to make money with the property.
That may mean that you have to sell it...
...and leave yourself worse off than you were before.
