lottowinAre you one of the majority of the population that will not have enough money for a comfortable retirement?

Yes, it’s such a very scary question that in fact, very few people will address the situation.

We all need to have plans and goals for our future, and I can tell you now they will not happen on their own accord. This is a true fact that for about 10% of our population, their  strategy for retirement is to win the lotto.  How sad is that?

We all need something better if we want to live in a comfortable retirement. For a couple, the pension only pays approx AUD $26,000 per year which is not very much at all.  And the average superannuation payout is around AUD $75,000.  My calculations are that although you would have enough to live for a couple of years from your superannuation.  But after that then bang, you are living on the pension.  That may not sound like  such a bad idea to you, but with a little planning now, you could well and truly set yourself up for a much more comfortable lifestyle in your later years.

You may well ask “How is that at all possible?” Well I can tell you that nothing is impossible, and let nothing beat you.

I was in that position. I was 36 and married, we had a little money put aside, owned our own home, and thought we was set for life.  My husband and I sat down, had a really good look at where we would be when I was 55.  Don’t forget, I did not have superannuation, but I did have some shares in a portfolio although they didn’t amount to much.

What we could foresee as our financial future was real scary.

That is when I decided to start investing in property and now, 12 years later I have a portfolio of ten properties which are nicely spread across   Australia. Yes, property will have its time when it goes a bit flat, but let’s not forget the 15% drop  that a share market can take at any unexpected time. Property has been great to me and my portfolio has doubled in about 9 years.

As an experienced property investor myself, I have huge experience which I can pass on to you and I am just waiting to help and educate you in property investing.  It is possible for you  to enjoy a really rewarding lifestyle in your later years.

Keep your dreams alive!

Here’s to your success!

    Hi there,

    I enjoy reading your posts which are straight to the point but sincere and thought provoking. I am living in Singapore and would like to know what kind of property & location will be ideal for foreigners to invest in in Australia. Thanks in advance!
