Luke on 2CC – Investing in property. Part 1: What to think about before you buy?

Financial Planner and Author of Smart Money Strategy Luke Smith, joins 2CC every Friday

Financial Planner Luke Smith joined 2CC Talking Canberra 1206AM in Money Matters, which aired on Friday 7 July 2023.  The topic this week for the show is: Investing in property – What do you need to think about before you make a decision to buy one?

Key topics covered include:

  • Why are you investing in property? A tax deduction is not the primary reason to purchase an investment property. Many people make this mistake, not thinking about the long-term factors or how it fits with their other assets.
  • There’s been a generational change in the way property works
  • Who will own the property? Will it held by an individual, a couple, a structure or a self managed super fund? There’s tax issues to consider too here!
  • Where are you going to buy it? Different states and territories have different rules.
  • What are you going to buy? Residential or commercial property?
  • Do your own real estate research – don’t rely on an agent to tell you everything you need to know.
  • Do you homework with strata if you’re buying into an apartment situation
  • Of course, think about rising interest rates and how will you pay the loan back too!
  • Finally, Luke shares his top tips to think about before investing in property
