Invest in your kid’s future now

So, how’s your “Financial Plan” looking? Have you set yourself up to be able to make some choices? Like, are the kids going to private or public school? Do you have a strategy to pay or all this? What’s going to be left for you to have a great life after the kids fly the coop?

As I stood on the sideline watching the kids play soccer on the weekend, a new mate of mine Brent, hit me with some pretty big questions; questions that got me thinking. Am I winning the game? Have I set myself and more importantly my family up to be able to make some important choices down the track?

It’s that moment when your kids are starting to grow up. You’re just getting into the routine Saturday sports mode; from footy to soccer back to netball, then Aussie rules on a Sunday. The list goes on, but you start to meet a new tribe of people in the same boat, heading down the next phase of life: the twenty-year cycle of bringing a new baby into life and then nurturing them to adulthood. 

Does anyone actually stop and think what this costs? You may begrudgingly think about it for a second in between the sleepless nights, work schedules, sports, school, family do’s and general life. But really, have you taken a moment to set yourself up for choices?

We live in a consumer era of over information, constant bombardment of offers and sales pitches, Instagram, Facebook, Netflix, Internet, remarketing and on and on. Someone even coined the phrase “adulting is hard”.

As I got to know Brent on the sideline, we got down to the grim and bare. 

“Well mate, what have you done and what do you do?” I asked. 

“Well John,” Brent said, “I invest. I invest for my clients. I build a strategy that gives them choice and builds them a solid foundation of wealth and cashflow, to pay for the choices they wish to make. Most people don”t realise what they could be doing for themselves in their current situation. In most cases it is much much more.”

“Alright then. So, tell me Brent, what should I be doing?”

“Well, you have a young family and two small businesses, some property interests and superannuation of some level. Just like this soccer match we are watching, there”s a lot to play for and some good players and assets on the field. Let’s look at the state of the market.   

The re-election of the government and the interest rate reduction by the RBA has seen banks offering reduced rates as well as reduced serving ratios, has seen the activity increase by 30 - 40%. What this all means is that the average investing budget can be increased by up to $100,000 compared to just a few weeks ago.”

“So what you”re saying,” I said, “Is that it’s time to act and look at new investment opportunities for the future.”

“Yes, if you want to have choices down the track, for lifestyle, kids or semi-retirement earlier, you can’t sit and wait, or worse still do nothing. You must act,” Brent answered.

“But it’s hard to get all that together and find the right investments, right?”

“Not at all! What is hard is not having choice down the track because you got too caught up in life now. Most people are sitting on equity or can borrow to finance growth assets into the future,
but simple don’t do anything about it.

The importance of investing early - benefits of getting the best of both worlds - security tomorrow and the benefits of providing cash flow for choice for children today is the only smart plan.

If you’re not investing today, the lack of choice tomorrow will start to hit home and have you working into your 70’s.”

“What about the massive mortgages people have here on the Northern Beaches?” I asked.

“With the increased debt levels. People are doing less for their futures relying on just single asset house price growth and don’t have the opportunity to make choices in the future.”

“So you”re suggesting…”

“Using equity can change everything and doesn”t have to include taking huge risks.

The right investment now can generate solid cash flow and immediate equity, allowing the opportunity for you to have the choice whether private or public schools are on the agenda or building growth assets for your future.”

“Do you have any examples?” I asked. 

“Well, our average clients have a household income $150k plus and are building portfolios that are cash positive from day one with incomes of 5% plus. Three of our recent clients have seen their investment property values increase by $35,000, $120,000 and $95,000 in 2018/19 with rental returns of 5% - 6.5%.

Typically we are seeing clients who have a young family and a large mortgage or are looking to get one, and then never-ending question of schools comes into the frame: public or private? The increasing population is putting pressure on the public campuses and the intake numbers. 

With private school fees rising dramatically, we are seeing more clients without the ability to choose where they send their kids. What we are helping clients understand is the choice can be created by investing in the
right property without changing their lifestyle too dramatically.”

“Okay, so investing to provide the cash to have the choice!” I said. 

“Yes. By investing in the right property, you can not only build a nest egg, but for it to also help pay for school
fees along the way is an investment in choice for your kids.  

Time does not wait for anyone John, and the longer you put off making a decision, the harder life becomes, the older we get, with less choices we are able to make.”

“Thanks Brent. That’s a real wake up call.”
