    Upsizing & downsizing: Chris & Amy's guide to making it happen

    Upsizing & downsizing: Chris & Amy's guide to making it happen

    In this episode of The Australian Property Podcast, Australia's #1 mortgage broker Chris Bates and top buyers agent Amy Lunardi break down the tricky transition of upgrading or downgrading your property.
    Topics covered in the Upsizing & Downsizing podcast:
    Upsizing:

    Using as a strategy – buying entry level now and upsizing in the future – benefits/risks.

    Buy or sell first?

    Buy first

    Don’t know what you’ll sell for = risk

    How does bridging finance work?

    Settlement periods matter: minimise bridging costs, pressure to buy, short term accommodation

    Flexibility of changing settlements (not guaranteed) 

    Licence agreements/rent backs

    Downsizing:

    Cheaper? Not necessarily!

    I often see downsizers still having lots of ‘requirements’

    Single levels, garages, spacious living areas, minimal work required. Consider local demographics

    Consult with ATO or financial planner regarding downsizer super contribution options, non-concessional contribution which doesn’t count towards the contribution cap

    How do banks consider equity rich cash poor/no income?

    Short term accommodation can be stressful / moving twice
