VIDEO: Borrowing to acquire property using an SMSF

The growing popularity of property investment within self-managed super funds (SMSF) has certainly attracted a new breed of SMSF trustee, but has also attracted the interest of the Australian Taxation Office and ASIC as they continue to regulate this growing sector.

It is important that individuals investing in property for their retirement understand the key issues of not just property investing, but also the roles and responsibilities that come with being the trustee of a self-managed super fund.

To help explain how this strategy works, I have developed the above video with our friends at Doodler to assist trustees and prospective trustees navigate around borrowing to acquire property within a SMSF.

It can be a highly effective strategy to build wealth for retirement, but it is paramount that you obtain the right advice from SMSF professionals.

I’d love to hear your feedback about the first of our new videos with John, Katie and “SMSF”…

  1. This was the best SMSF video I have ever seen. At last, someone has explained to me what these concepts are. Yet the reason I didn’t rate it Love-it is that I would have liked a couple of sentences added that you can’t stay even one night in the property, you can’t let any relatives such as your kids rent it from you or stay in it, you can’t buy a property from yourself or a relative – but you can sell your SMSF property to yourself or your relatives (I THINK I’ve got that right).

    • Hi Glenda,

      Thanks for your positive comments, I’m glad you liked it. I’ve taken your comment on board about use of the property, much appreciated. I might try and bring it into some of our future content with “SMSF” in the near future.
