This photo show one of the investment properties that we have shared with our private clients.
For late career couples with inadequate super, best results are achieved with a brand new off-the-plan house and land package in the south west suburbs of Brisbane.
Growth is faster there, rents are higher, outgoings are substantially less, and land tax is lower.
These suburbs are home to the demographic of the ideal tenant, there are solid jobs in the adjacent economic zone, and - most importantly - your exit strategy is that you will be selling to families, not investors.
If you go to the bookshop at the airport, you can find perhaps 18 different books on property investment. However we were delighted some time ago when we received this testimonial (from America): "You are the only rational source of information in your market".
If you are a late career couple with inadequate super, no other strategy can rescue you and give you the chance of 20-25 years of dignified retirement.
