    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/train

    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.

    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.

    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
