    Default Apartments galore

    Apartments are going up everywhere.. what are the returns really like ?

    I read somewhere DOn HA flying his clients to Queenstown for Ramada Apartments sellout. leased for 30 years


    Looking at returns 6.6% gross
    Marketing material says a 6.6 per cent guaranteed gross return for hotel apartment investors will be paid monthly, directly into bank accounts.Body corporate fees average about $750 a year for hotel units but rates are extra. previous
    failed hotels were run under management contracts, not commercial leases which is our set-up ----
    Still comes with risks

    hotel contracts of 30 years

    a bad joke

    hence the need to fly suckers around

    and keep them away from much better investments

    Earlier this year Colliers reported they expected 4000 new apartments in Auckland this year. I wonder how that figure is tracking and, more importantly, how sales are going and to whom.

    If they are selling to investors that seems odd as they are unlikely to be getting a reasonable yield and not much capital gain either. Not to mention tenant hassles. If going to owner occupiers, fair enough as the bank thinks the buyers are Ok. Some might be bought for social housing, problems coming up.

    But how many are unsold? And if that number increases what happens to the developers?
