NAB Investment Loan – Client Story

Chen, NSW


Securing A High Loan Amount For Purchasing An Investment Property


Chen and his wife are both self-employed. Chen is a general practitioner and his wife, Grace, is the managing director at an online-tutoring firm. Both have a healthy income stream and credit history, and a strong list of assets. They wanted to purchase an investment property but were troubled by the fact that it was difficult for them to find a lender willing to provide more than $1.5 million. The other issue was that their declared expenses did not match their spending habits. Thus, the process of getting a loan seemed like it would be quite long and challenging for them.


Chen and Grace contacted us for our expertise in working out difficult deals. Our expert broker Robert Mo had the pleasure of working with the couple. Firstly, Robert had to deal swiftly with the discrepancies in the declared expenses so upon receiving permission from the couple, Robert amended the mistakes in their declared expenses. After that, it was all about finding the right lender who was willing to let them borrow more than $1.5 million. The total loan amount they were after stood at $2.2 million. Due to Chen and Grace’s excellent income stream, loan security, and strong asset backing, the chances were high to get their loan approved. Robert used his expertise to pinpoint a few lenders that he deemed a good fit. After comparing multiple lenders, Robert decided to go with NAB. Due to the couple’s excellent financial position, Robert was able to obtain the following for the couple:
  • Loan amount of $2.2 million
  • LVR of 75%
  • Loan term of 30 years
  • The ‘Professional Package’, which is quite competitive
  • An offset account
  • A low interest rate of 2.45%
Chen and Grace initially thought securing a large investment loan as a self-employed couple would be a daunting task. In the end, they were very grateful for Robert’s help in setting them on their journey to owning an investment property.
