There are over 1.7 million landlords in Australia – that means 1 in 7 of us is some kind of property investor. The common perception is that property investors are young urban professionals. That couldn’t be further from the truth. According to the Australian Taxation Office, upwards of three-quarters of over 45s hold investment properties in Australia. The “Baby Boomer” segment of the population (those born between 1943 and the 1960s) owns 55% of investment properties. The total value of property held in Self-Managed Super Funds topped $24.4 Billion in 2016. So is there a “right age” to start investing in real estate? Can you be “too old?” Or is there no such thing?
