Episode 391 | War of the Property Policies: Which is the Winner?

With the Federal Election fast approaching, you’ve probably heard A LOT of noise around stuff like climate change, international security, and aged care funding… 

But as a property investor, you’re probably wanting to know: 

What do the parties’ property policies mean for you!?!  

We’ll be breaking down and comparing Liberal’s Access to Super policy and Labour’s Help to Buy (Shared Equity) policy and answering: How do they fit into the big picture?!? 

Like…

  • Will either policy help Australia’s economy?
  • Will dipping into your Super help or hinder future wealth creation?
  • And which demographic of people will benefit from which policy? (Plus, LOTS MORE)   

We’ll also be covering Liberal’s existing policies and turning the mic over to…our listeners!!  Yesterday we asked our Facebook Tribe for their questions around both parties’ property policies and MAN we were blown away!!   

You guys gave us a run for our money  (A big thank you to everyone who left us a question!!), and we’ve now got a fantastic lineup of Q’s that we reckon a lot of you are probably wondering too! 

So if you’re ready to get up to date with this year’s property policies and what they mean for YOU, then tune in now!!  

👇 Full list of questions below!! 👇

Questions we Answer

Q1) James Watson:  

“Am I missing something? I genuinely can’t see the benefit of the super housing policy. If you have a 5% deposit, if you qualify for and can service a loan, you will be far better off paying mortgage insurance than gutting your superannuation. Further, if you have a 5% deposit and you have the full $125,000 in your super and you borrow the maximum $50,000 and you’re looking to buy something at around 650-700,000 (ie. you’re not in a capital city), you will still have to pay LMI. So what is the point of this? Seems it will simply drive house prices up”

 

Q2) Marc Hooper 

“Would the LNP be better using Super as collateral against a loan rather than taking it out? Super should be for retirement. 

I feel taking super money out prematurely is bad policy. 

Are they trying to give us all higher interest rates? These policies will increase housing prices feeding inflation and giving RBA the need to raise rates. Do you feel that will lead to higher inflation and maybe rates? 

Love the ALP policy as is. But feel it will feed into inflation. So ill timed.” 

 

Q3) Svend Petersen 

“I reckon the LNP may have just lost the election with this dumb idea. Let’s fix the housing supply problem by increasing demand??? WTF?”  

 

Q4) Matty Tippowicz 

I think both policies are very poor ideas, especially Labor’s. Who the hell would want the government owning 40% of their property? 

 

Q5) Michael In-ski 

I’m a 32 year old professional. My super sits at about 40k today. I don’t know if anyone else is in the same boat as me but doesn’t seem like it’ll get me anywhere. Question: who will benefit from accessing super? Average Age, professions etc

 

Q6) Emma Benic 

What’s to stop someone selling the property, blowing all the cash and then needing the aged pension? 

Will they put stops in place that force funds to go back in to super? Or has this been overlooked?

 

Q7) KeLee Gee 

Access to super: will this be within the current SMSF route? 

Share equity: can people buy out the govnt share of their property? 

At what point the agreement ends? Death? Forced sale or refinance in certain timeframe? 

Both schemes: What are the limitations to type, location, age, condition of the property? 

 

Q8) Graeme Ash 

With shared equity, do you have to pay out their percentage on sale? Once again it would leave them short to make the next step on their journey.

CASE STUDY: How to Break into the Property Market?

Folks, the last time we unpacked a case study on the podcast was back in Episode 64 on 19th of May 2016. (WHAT?!!!)

So… you can imagine how excited we were with this case study, can’t you?

The answer is…  VERY!!!

 

We’ve been planning for this case study for weeks (whilst recording for the Summer Series too in fact) and there’s just so many moving parts when it comes to the variables and cashflow modelling. It’s simply not possible to explain it in an audio environment.

So we thought…

Let’s make sure we prepare this as a free downloadable for our community! 😊

The Questions…

Question from Al Knight Lewis – Investment Stock & Investment Grade – Is it still relevant?

“Good afternoon. I have just started listening to your podcasts and am finding them so

Interesting! Episode 8 talks about investment stock vs investment grade and I’m wondering if the info in this episode is still current and relevant 6 years later? I’m looking for our first investment in Brisbane.”

 

Question from Don Holloway – Are there any benefits from having $10k sitting in an offset?

“With interest rates so low atm is there any benefits from having $10k sitting in an offset?

My calculations (and confirmed by investment bankers n mortgage brokers) best to buy quality shares with your $10k than to month ball it into an offset account. Would love to hear your thoughts on this.

BTW, I’ve read your book Make Money Simple Again last year. Found it to be a parallel to Scott Pape barefoot investor
