Add extra repayments 

Pay more into the mortgage, by starting with adding $500 per month.

Fortnightly repayments

Make the change to fortnightly repayments, rather than monthly.

Pay every bonus into the mortgage
Pay every additional payment your receive such as tax refunds and work bonuses straight into the mortgage.

Take the first step

Don’t be tempted
Avoid buying new cars (or any cars) with the loan. Over time, these savings mean you’ll be able to buy nicer cars all the time or more importantly build up wealth from property much, much faster.

Add everything
Once you have your first property, it is time to supercharge the growth in equity to leverage into a second property.

Me?

I’ve bought in.
