SMSF investors have the ability to control their superannuation assets through their preferred investments, be it shares, bonds, or property. What makes buying property through a SMSF so attractive to some investors is the ability to access their already accrued superannuation funds, which may therefore result in the ability to build a larger property portfolio sooner, whilst postponing the lifestyle benefit until retirement. Setting up and buying properties through a SMSF requires an experienced team of professionals and might be more challenging to access funds from lenders.
