Bush lawyers abound out there in strataland. Someone heard from someone else that someone did something or got something and then that becomes the rumour that bounces around endlessly becoming the little spot fire that we then need to put out individually with clients when they ring to ask us: ‘I got told THIS — can we do that too?’ Valuers have it worse though. ‘So and so down the road got 5.6 times for their business so that means mine is worth 5.8 times.’ Leaving aside it was never contracted at 5.6 times in the first place, usually what has happened is the accountantRead More →

In August last year we published an article contemplating credit challenges ahead.  I point this out with no great delight because, for once, it seems we had it right.  Drop me a line if you want a copy of the original article, it’s on our web site. Anyway, one of the key points I raised a year ago was the expected pressure on lenders to reduce interest only lending. That prediction has most certainly come home to roost.  In the past few months we have seen a range of major and second tier lenders bring in restrictive lending standards for interest only property finance andRead More →

A torrent of investment in large-scale infrastructure projects is set to stimulate widespread opportunities in the accommodation industry, particularly in regional centres, according to Resort Brokers Australia. The national industry specialist is urging accommodation investors and operators to “follow the infrastructure trail” as Australia embarks on a period of colossal investment in nation-building projects designed to stimulate economic productivity in the short and long term. Commitments, at Federal and State levels, are numerous.  Chief among them are the 1700km so-called ‘Steel Mississippi’ Inland Rail from Melbourne to Brisbane, the giant power-grid battery project dubbed Snowy Hydro 2.0, and the new Western Sydney Airport at BadgerysRead More →

In their simplest form virtual tours have been used by commercial and residential sales agents for many years through the use of property photos which offer a prospective buyer the ability to experience a property and make a value judgement from a remote location without having to visit beforehand. This enables a viewing shortlist to be achieved and thus saving on valuable time. Today’s property buyers are often very sophisticated and time poor, wanting unfettered access to clear and high quality information which offer a truthful and accurate picture of the properties they are interested in viewing with as few unexpected surprises as possible.

When buying a management rights or leasehold accommodation business such as a motel there is an interesting dynamic at play that many purchasers fail to pay sufficient attention to. The fact is that outside the core group comprising the purchaser, the vendor and their associated advisors there is a third-party lurking. In the case of leases it’s the landlord and in the case of management rights it’s the body corporate. In both cases this third party has a vested interest in the professional capacity of the purchaser and their likely prospects of success. In both cases character, financial standing and qualifications will be important considerations.Read More →
