Here's How It Works

Here’s how it works.

If you do not have cash for the deposit of your investment property you can still become an investor.

  • If you have a home or another property and a steady income, then you may have sufficient equity to be able to secure an investment property.
  • Equity is the amount of value left in your property when the outstanding mortgage value has been deducted from the latest valuation.
  • Your equity can be used to secure a deposit on a rental property. This is called leverage.
  • Used sparingly, at appropriate levels of commitment and in a way that protects your assets, leverage gives you access to the funds you need for your investments – without the need for cash.
  • Any PROPELLOR Property  Investment strategy that we’re involved with will work towards ensuring your home will be protected and your lifestyle will not be compromised by any investment you make or mortgage that is secured on your behalf.

Developers love dealing with our clients as they know they are savvy and informed purchasers. That is why developers work closely with our sister  company METROPOLIS Real Estate Limited to secure investors for their property developments throughout New Zealand.

Given the standing of PROPELLOR in the market this often leads to lower prices for our investor clients. Not to mention on many occasions we can negotiate free furniture packs and can often ensure your investment property includes: curtains, blinds, dishwashers, and landscaping at no extra cost.

Our sister company METROPOLIS Real Estate Limited knows the best way to get a property sold is to create a unique value proposition that suits PROPELLOR, its clients and the developer.
