Choosing the right investment property home loan

HomeInsights


Choosing the right investment property loan.

Buying a residential property versus purchasing an investment property involves entirely different considerations. If you plan to live on the property, your priority will likely be ensuring it meets your personal needs. You’ll be thinking about such factors as its proximity to your child’s school or your workplace and the features of the home.
