    Hi guys
    I have an IP at Parramatta which serves me well. I have this setup as an IO loan with an offset account.
    I have about $90000 worth of equity in it. Is this enough equity to buy another IP, say a $250000-$280000 in Adelaide or Brisbane. I have enough money in my bank to pay for stamp duty and the other fees associated with buying property but would rather just use the equity as the deposit.
    Cheers

    Use your equity towards deposit and costs for your investment property.
    With your cash savings either pay down any other debt you may have-PPOR,personal loans etc

    Consider you need 5% for costs and 10 to 20% for deposit.
