    Hi all,

    I've lurked on these forums for quite some time, but finally decided to join up and ask some questions. I'm looking to rent out our current PPOR and purchase a new property closer to the city.

    Our situation is, we are a young couple with a 6 month old child. My partner is returning back to work shortly, part time. Her income below is pro-rated based on her full time salary, child is in childcare for the days my partner works.

    Our situation currently is:
    Primary income: $95k per year before tax
    Secondary income: ~$33k

    Current valuation (by a valuer 3 weeks ago) $380,000
    Current Morgage $330,000 @ 5.59%
    Repayments: Approx. $1650/month

    Future place of residence
    Budget (hopefully) ~$650,000

    We've also had a real estate agent out in the last week who has advised they can rent the property out for $450/week.

    Some final details. I currently have a personal loan of around $20k (4 years remaining) years, which was from some debt consolidation. No credit cards, not a heap of savings. I have a company car/phone and don't pay any FBT or expenses related to this.

    My question is, is this a feasible plan? Any advice?

    It will be very hard as you have little equity and no savings. Your current loan is 87% LVR.

    Have you considered just renting your place and renting another. You will get all the tax deductions and still can retain the CGT free status.
