Property vs. Superannuation

A recent study shows that to fund a comfortable life during retirement a man needs $590,000 and a woman needs $660,000 in superannuation assets. This will give them approximately $41,197 each year.

According to the ABS, the average superannuation balance for individuals aged 55 to 64 years old is $183,000. This isn’t even five years of comfortable living!

So how can we ensure that we don’t end up like 90% of the Australians out there? We need to act now! And how can we do this? PROPERTY!

Did you know that the average property in South Australia increases by 8% each year? So, say you bought an investment property for $320,000. It is expected to increase in value by $25,600 each year.

Let’s say you bought another investment property, worth $320,000 that is also increasing by 8% each year. You would be growing your wealth by $51,200 each year. So if you held these properties for just 15 years, you would end up with $768,000 in growth. This is more than 90% of Australians retire with!
