Q: Hi, I am 30 and earn 87k pa. My boyfriend is 27 and doesn’t have an income (but will in the next few years). We have combined savings of around 150k.
My question is: what is our best move? Continue to save and put down a chunky deposit on a place in Perth (where we plan to live in a few years) and then use equity to buy an investment property or the reverse? Buy an investment property in the interim that I can service with my income. Orrrr start a share portfolio?
I’m feeling the opportunity cost of not doing anything right now.
