Investing your money can be a successful way to make profit over time. There are many ways people can invest their money – some short term and some long. One way is to build a strong, diverse and suitable portfolio. 

Property investors come from many backgrounds, professions and incomes. Some property investors build and maintain a whole portfolio of properties, while some are happy with just one. Being a property investor does not necessarily mean you live in the property you own – some people rent their primary residence from somebody else and rent out the property they own. 

At Heritage, we understand the importance for our customers to chose investments that suit their financial situation and their lifestyle. Our team of lending experts are ready and waiting to help you purchase your next investment – whether it be a home to live in, rent out or land to eventually build on.

How we can help you get more out of your investment

Landlord Insurance

You have worked hard to establish your investment property and income it provides. That is why protection for your investment property is essential.

Financial Planning

A financial planner will be able to consider your entire financial position. This can be especially useful when you already have property you own.

Home & Contents Insurance

Ensure you have your house and its contents insured. This type of insurance covers accidental loss or damage to your building and/or the contents inside.

Offset Accounts

An offset account operates like a savings account but instead of paying interest, it reduces the amount of interest you pay on your home loan. It could save you thousands of dollars over the life of your loan.

Calculate your next move.

Home Loan Calculator

Be confident when buying your first home with our home loan calculator.  It estimates the cost of purchase, including items such as stamp duty, insurance, and government grants.
