In Australia, you are allowed to use your superannuation to buy an investment property. Let’s see how it works.

Let’s say you have $150,000 in your super fund, a combined income of $100,000 and you want to buy an investment property using your superannuation.

The property is worth $500,000 so the loan amount would be $350,000.

The total income of the superfund will be from rent and employer contributions.

Rent at 4% as a rate of return.

Employer contributions at 9.5% which equals $9,500.

The total income between rent and contributions is $29,500 dollars per annum.

The expenses include:

Interest at say 6.5% equals to $22,750

Council rates and water rates equals $1,500

Insurance on the property equals $1,000

Landlord insurance equals $272

Management fee of around 7% which is equal to $1,400

Tax and audits on the superfund equal to about $2,000

Total expenses $28,922

Total income of $29,500 less $28,922 dollars in expenses is $578

The capital appreciation at say 5% of the property value is $25,000. At 5% per annum in capital appreciation in 10 years the property would be worth $814,447. At 7% per annum in capital appreciation in 10 years the property would be worth $983,576.

In summary, your $150,000 superannuation investment could be turned into a one million dollar investment in the next 10 years.
