How can I minimize my tax?
We will prepare a cash flow and investment analysis for the property based upon your financial situation. You should discuss this with your accountant/financial advisor before proceeding.
What should I buy?
It really depends upon your wealth creation strategy – whether tax minimisation is important – the more land content as a percentage of the purchase price the more likely to obtain capital gain (wealth). Meredon Consulting will match your strategy with appropriate properties
Can I purchase using my SMSF?
Yes, subject to advice from your accountant or financial advisor. ATO has strict rules regarding SMSF property investment which you must be completely aware of. We only proceed with SMSF investment after full consultation with your advisor and your SMSF trustee.
How much should I spend?
Prior to proceeding to select an investment property you must have positive confirmation of your financial capacity to borrow. You should provide relevant financial and personal details to a lender or licensed mortgage/finance broker who will provide an estimate. If you do not have a broker or lender we can introduce you to very experienced mortgage brokers.
What type of mortgage is best for me?
Whether fixed or variable rates are suitable depends upon circumstances at the time. Your mortgage broker will offer you options to consider
Who will manage my property?
The management of your investment property is a key and critical function essential to the successful outcomes you seek. Prior to completion (if to be built) we will discuss your property with the most experienced property managers in the area with reputations for low tenant turnover and high rate of occupancy for vacant dwellings.
Where to buy?
This will depend upon the amount you have to spend. Any location Meredon Consulting offers to you will have been subject to, and passed our stringent location tests for potential capital growth and high rental demand.
Can I joint venture with others?
Yes you can, however you need to have very strict rules for the venture and we suggest that before entering into a joint purchase you obtain legal advice as to the venture agreement.
Can I afford it?
Your financial advisors will provide the answers. At Meredon Consulting we suggest that if you cannot afford to invest with comfort DON’T DO IT.
