Firstly, real estate investing builds not only income for now (assuming you buy cash flow positive properties), but will also prepare you for a comfortable retirement. As a bonus, you also get capital increase (real estate is said to double in value every 7-10 years approximately), as well as tax advantages. And if this isn’t enough, then you can also use other people’s money to acquire it and pay it off.
Sounds like a winner all around, don’t you think?

Well, how could we use our fluctuating income to our advantage? As farmers, on a good year we could put money in a ‘mortgage offset account’ or just pay extra off loan. This would reduce your interest payments. In a bad year, you can redraw extra equity you have in property, or properties. This investment vehicle can be used totally to your advantage (check with your accountant or tax advisor though).
I really could go on for ages about this brilliant opportunity because I am so passionate about it and it has been our saving grace over last couple of years as well as having comfort in knowing that we’re planning for a secure financial future.
