*Warning - Anecdata ahead* Several of my parents friends have recently retired - and withdrawn every bit of their super required to get a part pension to pay down their mortgage. On advice of their financial advisors the past few years they've taken every opportunity to bulk their super out, to now access the tax advantages of a large withdrawal. Several have upgraded everything (car, caravan, couch, etc) and gone all out on a retirement PPOR (Regional areas but premium properties). It feels as though this is currently playing around the margins of property - however with the increasing number of people purchasing their PPOR later in life (closer to retirement) would this affect become greater? (somewhat baffled at the fact govt allows large withdrawals from super then people can go on pension).
