Choices like never before.

Move in- Whether you are currently renting or you are paying off your own home, this may be the dream home you never knew you could actually get to live in, in real life. You may decide to move some of your own beloved furniture and personal effects in and sell what you no longer desire.

Your children can meet some new friends and you may be able to finally work from home. Alternatively, the home is located close to Bruce Highway for a fast commute.

Rent out- You may love where you already live and are not keen on having to pack up your whole life and settle into to new surroundings. Your family could have extensive involvement in your current community, such as sports, clubs, hobbies and extracurricular activities, that you would prefer to continue at least for the next couple of years.

You can still take any or all of the furniture and finishings from the RSL Draw 347 Yandina Prize Home. You may decide to rent the home out either furnished or unfurnished. In fact, there is no reason why you can’t store the furniture you would like to put back in the house in one of the garages and only rent the remainder of the home.

Either way, you can expect an estimated $65,000 per annum on your spectacular investment. That is more than an annual income for most working people and it’s a passive income!

Borrow against equity to acquire other investments- Whether you decide to move into the Musgrave Drive prize home, or rent it out and reap the rental rewards, you can borrow against the equity in the home. As long as your investment choices earn more than the interest you will pay on the loan you can capitalise on exploring how money makes money.

You could start that business idea that you believe is a sure thing. You can purchase a business that is already profitable, or expand your current business. You might like to invest in some shares, whether you already have experience with this investment style, or whether you would prefer to leave it to an expert organisation with a large portfolio and a history of strong returns for their investors.

You may decide to invest in more real estate, whether that is commercial property, existing homes, house and land packages or try your hand at property developing.

There are so many options for you to increase your annual income utilising either hands-on or passive income streams or a mixture of all of the above. This way you still own the property which will increase in value over the long term and enjoy the benefit of accessing a large portion for investment purposes. As long as you utilise the funds for income producing activities, the interest on the loan should be tax deductible.

Sell the home- Lastly, for whatever reason, you may prefer to sell the prize home and access the entire value of $1,834,199, the sale proceeds. You can invest in whatever you believe will provide you with long-term stability and financial freedom. Fortunately, because the proceeds from the sale of your home will be capital raised from a prize, the proceeds will be tax-free and let me tell you, there are not too many things in this life that are tax-free, especially not an asset worth $1.8 million!

If you wait a couple of years to sell the home only the amount that the home has increased since your win be tax-deductible.

The options that would present themselves to you are staggering, used wisely, this large sum of money will set you up for life, you can use it to produce income that will be with you until you retire and provide your retirement income. We strongly recommend that you seek advice from a trusted accountant or financial adviser, before making decisions about significant sums of money.

Whichever way you go, we know you will have an absolute ball, deciding on and executing your financial plans.

What makes a luxury home luxurious?

The correct answer would be that luxury means different things to different people. Certainly, if this home is far removed from the lifestyle you are familiar with, you will be pinching yourself almost constantly, waiting to see if the dream is going to come to an end and someone jump out of a closet screaming "only joking, you have to give it back now"!

But this home is yours to keep or do whatever you choose with it. There will come a day when you truly believe you deserve this elevated lifestyle, you deserve and enjoy driving the first car you ever purchased brand new and it still smells new. *happy face*
