What should you know of before you take this investment avenue?

Michael McCormick from Westpac guides you on what the investment means and how to set yourself up well for it.

A Warning!

The recently released Murray Financial Systems Enquiry  made 44 recommendations to the government, but one of the more significant recommendations for property investors is that self-managed superannuation funds be banned from borrowing to buy assets such as property and shares.

Of course there is no suggestion the recommendation will be accepted, or how it may be implemented, but if you have been considering utilising this strategy, then I suggest you seek independent advice on your next moves.

The government is seeking feedback from the industry about the recommendations made and the closing date is 31 March 2015, and I can imagine there will be strong lobbying from interested parties with deep pockets, so no decisions will be made in the next 3 or 4 months and there is no guarantee any changes will be made at all.

SO WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?

Firstly educate yourself and then seek independent advice from appropriately qualified professionals – not sales people

To help educate yourself I’ve created a series of 6 blogs with videos provided by Westpac to get you up to speed about the tricks and traps of property investment in a SMSF
