Step Ahead - Holiday Homes; Investment Properties; SMSFs

Stay a Step Ahead!

Welcome to your February edition of Step Ahead.

Over the Christmas break, I was enjoying some time down on the coast with my family and was looking at the real estate on sale in the area. As you’d probably imagine I wasn’t alone!

It can be a wonderful lifestyle choice, but does it mix with investment aspirations? In one of our feature articles today, we outline 7 reasons it usually doesn’t.
Keeping on the property theme, our second article details the simple secret we’ve observed to property investing success.
Finally, with the superannuation pie in Australia growing and costs for super coming down, we explore if Self Managed Super (SMSF) are a good idea. 

As always we welcome your questions or feedback and will look forward to seeing many of you throughout the year.

Have a wonderful day.

James and the team at Yield
