An article published on the website Mortgage Business talks about the recent Australian penchant for online SMSF property advice. There is a clear hike in the number of investors seeking online videos for their property themes.
The videos are informative and succinctly talk about aspects like capital growth and stability. Besides, they also reason out whether a particular property would suit the SMSF investors looking at the video.
The SMSF residential property wave has taken us by surprise and it is only befitting that investors are acknowledging the need for online education. It is hot money that they are going to invest, after all. The good point about videos is that everyone is familiar with the concept.
