  • SMSF Direct Property and What You Should Do

The first thing you should do when SMSF Direct Property is concerned is obtain the best professional real estate advice possible. Thereafter, make sure you get the best possible real estate advice. It’s not a typo; it’s the simple truth. If I had to report to someone today as to where most property sprukiers are hiding, it would be within the SMSF Direct Property area. The simple and obvious numbers are at least 1-2 in 10 Contracts of Sale either residential or commercial and in someway, are SMSF Direct Property transactions.

Lets face it, where there is a way to make an easy dollar in real estate, most sprukiers will be into that sector as soon as possible and no fanfare is required. Not only that, but when financial planners, developers, real estate agents and bankers know that this is a buoyant market, their attention is also sharpened.

Simply, this has, is and will be the market of choice – SMSF Direct Property.

I will provide a number of blogs on this issue over the coming period, from the simple question of real estate as a viable investment within your SMSF as Direct Property, and is SMSF Direct Property the most satisfactory type of investment rather than a stand alone real estate investment.

Importantly, I will discuss my view on the imperative necessity to obtain professional advice, rather than a property participant doing a ‘sales’ spiel on you.

Interestingly enough, the number of transactions we see, do not have any information or thought process from financial planners.
