Take back control of your mortgage. Annihilate it, or leverage the bank to build your own investment portfolio.
The team at Mortgage HQ have mapped out the typical journey to create a profitable property investing portfolio – we call it The Mortgage Lifecycle. The Mortgage Lifecycle breaks down the journey into three stages.
Step away from the doom and gloom the media create and see 2023 as a great time to take meaningful action.

Don’t let rising interest rates (towards the average) and a falling property market (towards the average) stop you from making logical decisions about your wealth building. The world might seem like it’s falling apart but you can choose to ignore the ‘bad news’ that sells papers and TV advertising and focus on yourselves.

Hang was feeling frustrated. She was pulling serious overtime hours but still only earning around $50,000 per year…
2016 – First advice meeting with mortgagehq.
Portfolio Value (only her home): $665,000
Total mortgage: $320,000
Total equity/property net worth: $345,000
2017 – Bought first investment property for $190,000. Earning $16,640 rental income per year.
2018 – Recycled equity to buy second investment property for $180,000. This property was earning her $17,160 rental income per year.
2019 – Bought 3rd investment property for $285,000. Again she sourced this deposit by recycling equity from her home and previous investment properties. This was earning $20,800 rental income per year.
2020 – Bought her fourth cash flow positive investment for $334,000, which was earning $20,800 per year.
2021 – After discussing options with us, she eventually decided to sell her first investment to reallocate capital into a new property with development potential. She sold her 2017 investment property – doubling her money! Then purchased a $500,000 two unit property on a 2,600m2 section. This property is earning $31,200 whilst land banking!
Portfolio value: $2.8 Million
Portfolio equity: $1.2 Million (also her net worth in property)
Annual portfolio profit: $28,000+
She earns over $500 per week just from her investments.
She has achieved her dream of becoming mortgage free in just 5 years. Every day Hang wakes up knowing she is able to sell part of her portfolio to clear all her debt. Or if she sold all of her properties she would have $1,200,000 in her bank account.
Family of 3, Travis working full time and Bex working part-time, had invested in a couple of land banks in their portfolio and have made significant gains. However, with the elimination of interest deductibility and the rise in interest rates in 2023, they began questioning their investment strategy and needed guidance.
The client booked a free strategy session with us to explore alternative options for their portfolio. During the session, we introduced them to the concept of building a more balanced portfolio to mitigate the impact of interest rate changes. Despite having cash reserves to weather the interest rate rise, we proposed adding a block of units to their portfolio to further enhance its performance. He felt he really need to expand his knowledge so he joined our property formula workshop as well.
The client decided to proceed with our recommendation and acquired a block of units at a cost of $598,000 which included all healthy homes cost and finders fee. This property generated a remarkable rental income of $1,100 per week from social housing, resulting in an impressive yield of 9.55%. To optimize their overall portfolio, we strategically shifted the debt from the land banks to this new property, allowing the client to reduce their interest expenses and make the property’s interest tax deductible. This significant boost to their portfolio has given the client renewed confidence.
With the success of this transformation, the client is now considering offloading one of their land banks to acquire two additional multi-unit properties. This strategic move will further diversify their portfolio and create a more sustainable income stream for long-term wealth building.
Joe, the breadwinner of a family of four, had diligently paid off their mortgage and was on the verge of becoming mortgage-free. However, he faced the question of what to do next. Living off a mortgage-free family home wasn’t enough to fulfill their long-term financial goals, and they lacked investment and retirement plans to secure their future.
Challenges and Concerns
Despite considering new builds and the government benefits associated with them, Joe had reservations. He questioned the cash flow negativity of these properties and doubted the capital growth potential due to their small land size.
To address Joe’s concerns and guide him towards a financially sustainable future, he participated in a free strategy session with us. We developed a 10-year plan that leveraged his existing resources and focused on building secondary income through property investments. Joe also joined our property formula workshop and became part of our tight-knit community for ongoing support and knowledge-sharing.
The results of Joe’s journey were remarkable. Within just eight months, leveraging our network and expertise, he successfully acquired three blocks of units in regional main centers with a total acquisition cost of $4.2 million. These properties were 100% financed using their freehold owner-occupied property. The portfolio comprised 17 rental units, generating a substantial rental income of $7,340 per month.
Notably, each purchase was cash flow positive, despite the challenging interest rate environment and the recent changes to interest deductibility rules. Joe now has full confidence in his investment strategy, even assuming a conservative 6% annual capital growth. Over the next 10 years, this portfolio is projected to add an additional $3 million in equity, providing Joe with financial security and ensuring he will have more than enough for retirement. Additionally, it offers him the flexibility and options to support his children’s future endeavours.
For you to experience extraordinary results we need to provide you with unusually good advice.
We do this by following a continually evolving process that moves past explaining your current options and includes forecasting how your decisions will create or eliminate options in your future.
