SMSF Finance

Buying property through an SMSF can be a fantastic way to build long-term wealth. But the rules around SMSF borrowing are strict, and lenders can be demanding, so it’s important to work with a finance brokerage that excels in this area, like Market Street Finance.

Some investors buy residential property for their SMSF. Others buy a commercial property and lease it to their business – which can be a shrewd strategy, provided you charge a fair market rent, as per the regulations.

There are three reasons why so many investors favour SMSF property investment. First, you can use leverage to significantly increase your superannuation asset base. Second, you can grow your retirement savings in a tax-effective structure. Third, property can be a nice form of diversification if you’re already heavily invested in equities.

If you’re unsure how SMSF property investment works or whether it’s suitable for you, we can talk you through the regulations and explain the pros and cons.
