Financing Your Investment Property Ep 26

Peter Ziggy Explains Your Options

Whether you are a first-time buyer or an existing property owner, you might be thinking about buying an investment property. But what should you look out for when financing your investment property? If you’re not prepared, or you don’t get appropriate advice, you could ultimately lose out.

In this episode of Real Estate Matters, Toni interviews Peter Ziggy, CEO and founder of 3P Financial – a niche, boutique financial services provider.  They discuss whether it’s better to invest first or buy first, the best methods of financing your investment property, and what to consider when taking financial advice.

This episode is key for anyone who is considering financing an investment property. You’ll learn why it’s important to choose the right financial adviser, what kinds of buffers you should plan for in your investment cash flow, and why you may want to put off buying your own home in favor of an investment in the short term.
