Hi folks We are just going through the process of setting up our SMSF - signed the documents yesterday as a matter of fact Using 20% deposit we can afford x2 properties at $700k each. We are yet to have an IP outside of super as we reduce our PPOR mortgage. We are both 42 so a while before preservation age. From many hours reading these forums (and Somersoft) it appears recommendations lean toward property that is newish (requiring less upkeep /renovation) with good long term CG. I'm currently thinking a new unit at Lutwyche, Brisbane and perhaps a house/land on the Sunshine Coast. There is also an option of a new OTP unit in Caloundra being discussed in another thread. Looking for advice on what to buy. Any input is appreciated.
