There are plenty of property spruikers in the market willing to sell you a property and have you use all your super to achieve this. They will tell you that the property growth will help you achieve your retirement dreams. THIS IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS!! Without a well-defined Financial Plan and Investment Strategy structured for your SMSF, the likelihood that you pick the one property in the market that will make you hundreds of thousands of dollars is quite low.

I’m not saying that investing into property through your super is a disaster. Far from it! What I am saying is that a SMSF needs a Plan and an investment strategy to achieve the retirement goals you and your family set.
