I heard a lot of people taking about using superfund to buy property.
When can we start thinking about that? Do you have to have a lot of superfund?Richard TaylorParticipant@qlds007Join Date: 2003Post Count: 12,024
Financing a purchase inside your SMSF has certainly got a lot harder than it used due to the minimum balance / cash asset requirements.
Whilst still doable many lenders require you to have a minimum of 200K in the fund before they will look at the deal.
There are certainly no legal requirements as to what minimum balance you need to establish a SMSF but as long as you balance up the costs of establishment and maintenance against flexibility and the choice of investment etc.
Couple of private lenders in the market doing fairly good deals for the smaller loan balances.

There’s no legal restriction, but there’s two main factors which will decide whether it’s the right time to setup a SMSF:
*the practicality – whether the benefits will outweigh the upfront and ongoing costs, this is usually the case as the balance increases
*lender policy – whether you have the ability to meet the lender policy requirements to borrow
This is a VERY common conversation we have with clients, to the point where our financial adviser will review whether it is viable at this time to setup their SMSF, and if not what steps are needed to get to the point of being able to build their balance up to start their own fund.D.T.Participant@dtraegerJoin Date: 2014Post Count: 128
