Welcome back to another episode of the 360 Money Matters Podcast! 

In this episode, we discussed equity in property, focusing on its calculation, utilization, and implications. We explained equity as the difference between the property value and the debt owed, influencing the loan-to-value ratio (LVR). An LVR above 80% may incur mortgage insurance costs due to increased risk for banks. Utilizing equity can enable diversification into other assets or properties to further expand your wealth creation. 

Another key point highlighted was structuring loans to ensure tax deductibility based on the fund's purpose. The debt recycling strategy was introduced as a powerful method to convert non-deductible debt into deductible by investing strategically with borrowed funds from existing equity. This approach involves building an investment portfolio that generates income to pay down non-deductible debts over time.
