A well-managed investment can offer many advantages, including income and capital growth. Many investors may be able to use their investment to reduce the tax payable on their assessable income.
Property is also a good option as part of an investment portfolio, particularly for people who do not need immediate access to their money and wish to protect themselves against inflation over the long term.
It is important to be aware of the responsibilities of managing your property investment and assuring proper care.
