As a young married couple, we have a Family Trust set up that currently has a commercial investment property that has no money owing on it. It is currently tenanted out and earning an ok rent return. We are looking to sell the property for a number of reasons, and are starting to think about the best ways to manage the proceeds of the sale. Once we take out taxes, stamp duty etc our estimated amount left over is pretty close to the amount we have left owing on our PPOR. Considering we are only young, I am after some opinions, if it would better to pay off our home and own it outright, or invest the money from the sale into another investment property or shares for our Family Trust. Our goal with the Trust is to build it up with shares/properties so that it can help fund our future childrens' education. Obviously, I will be discussing this further with my accountant, but I would love to hear from anyone on InvestEd who may have encountered any similar situations or has any thoughts. Thanks.
