If you were to ask the average Aussie what their plan for retirement is, they’d normally say their superannaution.
After all, it’s the system designed to help Aussies self-fund their retirement…
But there’s one BIG problem with the system for most Aussies over 40 years old;
They don’t have enough in their super to live more than a few years, before becoming heavily reliant on the government pension.
A pension that can be as little as $327.25 per week, per person to cover:
On top of these ‘essential costs’, most of us dream of spending our golden years traveling, pursuing the things we love, and having enough leftover to be generous and pass on to kids/grandkids…
A dream that is getting more and more out of reach for the average couple.
And unfortunately, the issue is getting worse, as mortgage debts skyrocket.
The question most of our clients ask when they hear this, usually goes something like:
…How Does This Happen To Someone?
Or perhaps more importantly,
……How can I stop this happening to me?
Part of the answer lies in the Treasuries 2020 Retirement Income Review.
‘As at June 2019, around 71 per cent of people aged 65 and over received Age Pension or other pension payments.
For most households aged 65 and over, the family home is their main asset. Superannuation makes up a small share of their net wealth‘ – Commonwealth of Australia 2020
The answer, in short, is that the average Australian over 45 hasn’t built enough super to sustain themselves in retirement.
In fact, most people, if they’re honest with themselves probably can’t even answer the following simple questions about their supposed ‘nest-egg’:
Now, while the government is doing their part to increase the super guarantee from 9.5% to 12.0% over the next 5 years, the current outcome for the average Australian can be a stark reality for those who are approaching retirement.

So, the question that remains is what can YOU do now, to setup your financial future and ensure a self-funded retirement:
Well, really you’ve got 2 options:
2. You can take control of your super through an SMSF.
An SMSF can potentially save you tens-of-thousands in tax, reduce capital gains on property purchases, and ultimately – give you control over your future.
Now, when we normally first talk to our clients about SMSF property, there’s a mixture of excitement and uncertainty.
After all, most of them have seen their properties almost double in value over the last 5-10 years…
(Not to mention the growth they’ve had since the start of 2021!)
But they’re uncertain of the process, costings involved and whether they can even afford to buy an investment property in their super.
That’s where we come in.
