Hi, I am doing some very early / preliminary research and wonder if anyone can offer advice. My husband and I have two young kids. He is on a full time salary of approx 100k. I run a part-time mobile health business that is growing (but only earning me about 40k at present), and would like to investigate the options of setting up a large clinic as a bit of a pivot. We have 2 residential investment properties & are currently renting a house due to a lifestyle move. I like the idea of buying a property we can live in AND use for commercial purposes. We would consider selling both properties to finance it if we felt the opportunity was good enough, but obviously would prefer to keep them. If we did sell, it would give us about 300k to put towards it. Putting aside commercial use zoning etc and the pros and cons from living where you work, I want to know: - how serviceability is normally assessed if part/all of the building is to be used for a new business - can they assess potential business income based on the new business model? Or do they only assess on current income? - any other words of wisdom you might have about this scenario I look forward to hearing your input.
