Luke on 2CC – Should I sell an investment property and put money into super?

Financial Planner Luke Smith joined 2CC Talking Canberra 1206AM in Money Matters, which aired live on Friday 7 June 2024. With the end of financial year just around the corner, this weeks topic looks at the issues around selling your investment property and putting it into super. There are some reasons to consider this strategy, especially if you’re approaching retirement age. Thank you for joining us live on 2CC or your favourite podcast streaming service.

Key topics covered include:

  • What are the things to consider around keeping an investment property?
  • What are your needs given the value of the asset?
  • What is the true yield (net income) of your investment property? Don’t just look at the rent, there’s costs too, rates, insurance, strata, and so on.
  • What is the cost structure of the investment property?
  • What’s the best use of those funds?
  • Is liquidity important to you? Do you have things you’re planning to spend money on?
  • How much can you put into super? Can you claim a tax deduction to offset a capital gain if you have one?
  • Think about timing to make sure you can sell your property and get it into super.
  • Luke shares his top tips around selling an investment property, super and retirement planning. Seek advice if you need help.
