    we have a smsf account with macquarie and want to borrow $480,000 against a property worth $600,000. Do we need to have a certain amount in reserve?

      Hello David,

      Thanks for your question.

      Do we need to have a certain amount in reserve?
      -Yes, with this loan you’ll need at least 20% of the purchase price as a deposit. Since the total worth of the property is $600,000 you would need at least $120,000 as deposit.

      I hope this information helps.
