Hi all, Most people's big dream is to own a property, by 'own' I don't mean the bank owns it. In common situations a couple, single or a family purchase a property and slowly slowly starts the big mortgage journey. Certainly they will play around with equities, taxes and rent to relieve some pain, but is it this the only way to get there? I would like to share my goal with you to understand how would I get there... I have been in Australia for over 5 years now, but despite my love for it, I want to move back home (Italy). The ideal position to move back would be sitting on $500+ pw of passive income generated by a combination of rental properties and a mutual fund. Currently, I am working full time, earning just $900pw (net) and my savings are enough for a deposit, BUT I don't want to fly back in 30 years, not even in 20, more like 5-7. I am aware that I set the goal very high but I wanted to give you the real goal to seek the best advise. Thank you for your time and I hope you are well, MB Ps. Aside from winning the lotto option..
