When you have SMSF, it is best to have a diversified portfolio. If something goes wrong, you can at least count on the rest of your investment.
However, when you invest a large amount of your money in stocks or property, the risk you can take is enormous. These days, many people feel more comfortable investing in one type of real estate than forex, or stocks.
However, you must have an exclusive self managed super funds (SMSF) structure and an investment plan to purchase a property as an investment vehicle. It is quite difficult to invest in real estate through SMSF, so you will need to speak extensively with financial advisors and lawyers.

Of course, there are additional fees for these consultations, but these financial advisors and attorneys ensure that real estate and SMSF investments are stable so they don't jeopardize your retirement funds in the long run.
It is important to comply with all laws overseeing real estate investments by SMSF. What is important is that you cannot use this property for living because this real estate investment serves as an asset.
Buying property through your SMSF can be an excellent investment strategy if you are prepared. Real estate investing is not for everyone, but it is highly recommended that you talk to your financial advisor or accountant if this is a good investment strategy.
