Plan For Retirement With A Mortgage Broker

Planning for retirement is something we must all do and the sooner we start the easier we make it for ourselves - no matter how far away it seems.

It may seem obvious to turn to a mortgage broker for home loans advice, but what many don’t realise is that they can help you work out a retirement saving strategy too.

This is because property investment is one of the most reliable ways there is of generating passive income over the long-term.

If you own a home, accessing your equity can help you start investing for your retirement sooner by making it easier to buy a second property.

Using your equity will mean your current home is provided as security. As a result, lenders will often finance up to 100 per cent of the house price and you won’t have to pay a deposit from your own money.

Alternatively, you can invest for your retirement by borrowing money to buy property using a Self-Managed Superannuation Fund (SMSF).

The advantages of using an SMSF to start an investment portfolio include tax benefits and having control over where your superannuation is invested.
