Question two

Penny wished to purchase a family home in the Melbourne eastern suburbs. She was hoping to fund the

entire purchase with the $1m sales proceeds of her old home so she would be debt-free.

Instead, Penny purchased a large vacant block of land for $1m from the sale proceeds of her old home.

The land was much larger than her needs, so she borrowed a further $1m to construct four identical houses

on the subdivided land. Penny engaged the services of a builder, although she was involved in the planning

and management of the project to save costs.

Penny retained one home for her family to live in and the remaining three houses were marketed and

eventually sold by her for $1m each.


1. Advise Penny on the alternative ways that she could be assessed on the proceeds of the three
