This makes the property positively geared as you are making a profit from it. The advantages of positively gearing a property are the increasing of your income, the more money you make means the more money you can use on paying for other things that you would otherwise struggle to pay for.

Another advantage of negative gearing is that it’s much more affordable making it easier to secure tenants for a longer time.
