SMSF Property Investment
Investing in a Carlisle home within your Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF) makes for an ideal retirement investment strategy.
What is an SMSF?
A self-managed super fund (SMSF) is a trust where money and investments are managed on behalf of its members – usually you and/or your partner or extended family. The purpose of the fund is to provide benefits to its members on retirement or death.
In recent years using your self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF) to invest in property has become an increasingly popular option to increase retirement savings.
What are the advantages of investing in property through my SMSF?
An SMSF has significant advantages over a conventional “retail” superannuation fund. The biggest of these is that you are in control of your retirement savings.
Owning residential property within your SMSF can provide you with significant tax benefits. Overall, it’s been proven to be a lower-risk investment option than playing the stock market or investing in a conventional “retail” superannuation fund that is affected by the fluctuations of world economic markets.
Investing your SMSF into “bricks & mortar” property is seen as a much less risky and more tangible investment and it puts the control of your retirement investment into your own hands.
