Ah I know the ones – used to be a large motel complex. There seems to have been no action there in developing for a long time.
They seem good value and probably walking distance to town/trainScott No MatesParticipant@scott-no-matesJoin Date: 2005Post Count: 3,839
As ex-motel rooms they will most likely be <50m2 which may mean that you will have some difficulty in financing a purchase. Turnover of tenants will be reasonably high and your levies will also be high if there is to be a fulltime concierge onsite/swimming pool/lift etc. This will hammer any returns.dr houseParticipant@dr-houseJoin Date: 2001Post Count: 281
it doesn't say if they are serviced apartments?
You can't really add value, capital gain may be limited and outgoings are often quite high.god_of_moneyParticipant@god_of_moneyJoin Date: 2008Post Count: 971
Ask for Management fee, strata fee etc (big cost)…. and get the gross rental valuation. The nett return may be ~5%.
It may be difficult for re-sale in the future (main concern).
also problem with financing.. but only A$80k …. can pay with cash and park it in DFT
