I have come across the sale of car parking spots in Melbourne for $37,000 which offer a 7.5% NET. locked in for 3 years.
Has anyone ventured in the car parking spots? if so, what do you need to look out for? is it a wise investment? what is the capital growth like (as the net return sounds quite good)?
Do you really owns that property? is there is strata fees?Howard MoralesParticipant@howardm673Join Date: 2015Post Count: 16
Since, it is a commercial property naturally you will get a good profit of it. But before you sell your car parking you should hire a real estate agent he may help you in selling your car parking at best prices.

Why are you buying? Do you want / need capital growth? Or are you in a position where it is in fact only the income component you are after and any capital appreciation would be a bonus or irrelevant (as you wont sell regardless).
It doesn’t sound as though you are sure of all of the costs, make sure you have ALL of the info before making a decision. How is it in fact structured, do you own a car park? Can there be other costs (is it part of a multi-story building which needs work). Are more parking spaces being built nearby, or could they be easily built in the future.
1) WHY are you buying (what do you need from the investment, income vs capital growth)
2) How secure is the income? (competition, future competition, alternate uses)
3) What is the likelihood of the income increasing over time
4) are all the likely costs accounted for
5) what can you do to increase its income (advertising on the site?)
I am with Terryw on this one. I’d sooner have shares in Telstra.
