Hi all, I'm late 30s and have about $240k in super with a retail fund. I have significant assets outside of super and an income circa $200k and am happy to take risk with my super. My plan was to establish an SMSF and purchase a house circa $800k-$900k in a location that will ultimately gentrify and borrow up to $700k to do it. The house would be mostly for land value and the yield would not be great, however my income would cover the shortfall from the rent. I have been contributing the maximum allowed pre-tax to my super for several years. The longer term goal would be to have land (with house) that has long term development potential, and sell for land value in 30 years time. In the short term I could do a cosmetic renovation on the property to improve the yield. Questions: 1) Is this achievable? 2) Can I use the super contributions from my job to help service the loan? Or is this not allowed? 3) Are there any obvious pitfalls with this strategy? I have already considered concentration risk, inability to develop within SMSF using borrowed funds, high leverage.
