Buying a home

Alternatives to buying your home

Housing affordability is a problem that is a real issue for many people and other options may need to be considered.

 

Owning your own home is an excellent goal, it underpins the idea of financial stability. Home owners can future-proof housing costs, that have increased well in excess of CPI for the last few decades. Moreover, if you are able to pay off your house before you retire, home ownership removes the largest expense we face once we are no longer earning an income. Historically, houses have also proved to be an excellent appreciating asset.

Income protection insurance

Importance of income protection insurance

Insurance is the least exciting aspect of financial planning but arguably the most important. One of the biggest causes of financial hardship is loss of income due to injury or illness. Very few of us are able to go a significant period of time without income and would be under severe financial stress if we were not able to work for an extended period. Income protection insurance is available to provide us an ongoing income in the event that we are unable to work due to injury or illness.
