I am 53 years old and my partner is 57. We both are working as a management team and earning around $150k per year which includes food and accom.
We are looking at purchasing a property to eventually build our retirement home.
We have an investment unit valued $300K however we owe $180K on the mortgage.
We have around $70k saved.
Our question is should we sell the investment unit and get a small loan to purchase this property or should we start a SMSF and transfer our super & savings to pay the investment unit off and then borrow the full amount to purchase our property?
Any advice would be appreciated!

    Would you be able to either reach out to me direct or reply here with some extra information so I can better understand your circumstances.

    Regarding your Investment Property please provide the following: Location; date of purchase; Purchase Price; Weekly Rent; Annual Expenses

    Annual income is that $150K each or combined?

    I look forward to hearing from you.
