The savings you’ve built up in your Superannuation Fund can be used to make investments in a range of asset classes. By transferring your super to a new or established Self Managed Superannuation Fund (SMSF) the opportunity to use gearing to purchase property may become available.
Using your SMSF funds as a deposit, some lenders will approve loans starting at just $100,000 to purchase property, and the income generated from the rental can help meet your repayments.
With commercial property, it may be possible for your SMSF to purchase a property that will be occupied by your business, as long as the rent is at market rates.
Essentially this type of finance is a Term Loan with features such as flexible terms up to 30 years, the choice of principal and interest or interest only repayment, and the options of fixed or variable rates, or a combination of both.
There are many rules and regulations governing your SMSF so it’s important you get the advice of a financial professional, like your accountant or financial planner to assist you to make the right choices.
