One thing to consider, prior to establishing your SMSF is the cost of your money, depending on what it is that you plan to do your interest rate will be higher 1-1.5% as will your deposit. Talk to your broker about what to expect before you establish.
There are two leading indicators that I am looking for.

I am very active in the Perth market. It has definitely come off the bottom. We have gone from a peak of 17,000 properties for sale (Buyers market) 18 months ago to a balanced market of 13,100 properties for sale (balanced market). Over the last 4 weeks this number has come up to the low 14,000’s as the spring listings hit the…[Read more]

I think it will end at some time in the future. We have a federal government that is unable to control spending and cannot get anything through the senate. We have sold most of our government owned assets, so there is very little left to sell off. We also have a rapidly aging population and a shrinking pool of tax payers.
Negative gearing will…[Read more]

The answer will depend on the soil type. A minimum would be 100mm 25mPa. It will also go beyond just slab thickness. Your footings will need to be designed for the correct soil type as will the reinforcing steel. A Geotechnical report will be required first, before an engineer can give you the corect design. If you have high clay soil…[Read more]
