    Hi Everyone,

    I am 29, live in Adelaide and have just had a recent windfall of about $300k. I have no debt and live with family at the moment as I am looking to move to the country, I also have an income of around $85k/year until feb next year when my contract ends. I am torn as to whether to invest in shares or property. With the market the way it is and prices still reasonably affordable in Adelaide I am thinking property. Could someone please help me out with some advice or point me in the right direction for me to learn more. At this point I am thinking of using 200k as a deposit for an investment house (cottage) in the cud and perhaps 100k as a deposit for an apartment?

    Complete newbie in this space so advice is really appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum Kane.

    I’d talk to a broker to work out how much you can borrow as the contract ending will more than likely be an issue. If financing isn;t an issue I’d pay 20% deposits and park the remainder in offset accounts.

    I’m currently investing in Adelaide and there are plenty of bargains out there. I’d try an read up on a few strategies and see what you think will fit your future plans.

    Happy to chat if you need and help.

    Consider buying a main residence borrowing 80% and then pay it Down asap while recycling debt by paying the loan off and redrawing to invest. Structure the loan splits to maximise flexibility in doing this.
