Why Rent When You Can Buy?

With the imminent arrival of the NewQuay Central Park, the revival of Harbour Town shopping centre and the much anticipated arrival of a primary school, it’s not hard to see why NewQuay is growing in popularity and population.

MAB’s most recently completed project, Promenade Aqui, has proven enormously popular with the rental market, not only because of its waterfront location but also its larger apartment sizes and communal facilities help to make it the perfect home and provide the ultimate Docklands lifestyle.

But have you ever considered how much you’re spending in rent compared to mortgage repayments if you were to buy?┬áIn most cases there is very little difference in cost and what better way to purchase a brand new apartment without having to wait up to two years during construction.

Take apartment 407 at Aqui for example. A one bed, 1 bath apartment with an advertised rental yield of $390 per week. According to the below calculations, weekly mortgage repayments work out to be practically the same.

Purchase Price$370,000
20% deposit$74,000
Total amount borrowed$296,000
Interest rate5.36%
Monthly repayments$1,665
Weekly repayments$384
