HOW A GRANNY FLAT CAN SAVE YOU $230,000 IN INTEREST AND CUT 16 YEARS OFF YOUR LOAN!
Whether an owner occupier or investor, home ownership is usually paired with a loan. Loans mean risk! The longer the loan, the more exposure to risk.
The key is to reduce the duration of the loan. By doing this, you save hundreds of thousands of dollars in interest.
Here are two typical scenarios where the addition of a granny flat can help reduce your loan duration.

|Granny Flat rental income used as additional loan repayment per week||$400||$500||$400||$500|
|Years Saved on Your Loan||16||18||14||16|
|Interest Saved on Your Loan||$ 229,000||$ 248,000||$ 278,000||$ 306,000|
A GRANNY FLAT CAN PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY FROM INTEREST RATE RISES
Interest rates in Australia have been very stable over the last few years, but it’s only a matter of time before we see an increase.
Have you ever thought about the additional cost to your loans if interest rates increase?
The good news is that the addition of a granny flat to any property will help buffer your loan by 2-3%…. almost like an insurance policy.
Here are two scenarios assuming $500,000 and $700,000 loan amounts:
|Loan Amount||$ 500,000||$ 700,000|
|Interest Only at 4% p.a (monthly payment)||$ 1,667||$ 2,333|
|Interest rate increases by 2% to 6%. New Interest Only at 6% p.a (monthly payment)||$ 2,500||$ 3,500|
|Additional Interest Repayments||$ 833||$ 1167|
Now let’s add a granny flat to the property. Here’s how the numbers change:
