Commercial real will be on the investment menu for self-managed super funds in South East Queensland, in 2018.
“Commercial properties in the City of Logan priced between $200,000 – $1.5 million will continue to attract DIY super finds in 2018,” said John Tamblyn, Joint Managing Director of Raine & Horne Commercial Beenleigh. “SMSF members are seeking yields of 6-8%, which compare favourably to residential returns.
“At the same time, share market volatility is attracting SMSF capital away from equities and into commercial property.
Investors, including those using DIY super funds, represent about 75% of the Beenleigh commercial property marketplace, noted John. “That said, low-interest rates compared to the cost of a lease were a factor in some owner-occupiers choosing to become their own landlords.”
