“Property always has been, is now, and always will be the best investment.”

My first introduction to Investment Banking was back in the 70’s when I joined John Russel’s Securitibank – a training ground that has proved to be extremely valuable; especially as my initial job was as his P.A.

My first introduction to Investment Banking was back in the 70’s when I joined John Russel’s Securitibank – a training ground that has proved to be extremely valuable; especially as my initial job was as his P.A.
He also used to write newsletters, and one on particular which I researched for him, and whose headline I’ve never forgotten was “Property always has been, is now, and always will be the best investment.”
Well we all know that, like any investment, property is subject to a number of factors including the economy. And it has its calamities. For example 10 years ago on December 30, 2008, the U.S. housing bubble was an important cause of the 2007 – 2009 recession. House prices and values in New Zealand have also had their ups and downs
There are a number of views on the immediate future of the residential market here now, driven partly in the belief its “bull run” just can’t continue. But whatever the immediate future, there remains a strong case for property investment in the long term.
Of course there are multitude of ways of “investing” in property other than your own house. The FMA here has a summary about investing in property and issues some warnings. And if you care to Google “The benefits of property investment” you can spend the rest of the day on your computer, or the next month or so attending seminars.
More risky, but potentially more profitable to an investor is property development. This falls into three broad categories, subdivisions, constructing commercial and industrial buildings, and building apartments or houses.
Right now we’ve got some examples of all of these available or coming up in the next few weeks. If any of these interest you then email or call me to be put on the list of interested parties. Note participation in these offers is restricted to investment by “eligible” investors.
Residential Subdivision
An experienced developer has obtained the right to purchase 3 ha of land in South Auckland zoned Future Urban. This land is how currently in the process of being re-zoned residential with finalization scheduled for March – May 2019. The fact of the rezoning will substantially increase the value of the land, and with the resource consent to subdivide in place will almost triple the value of the land. Once subdivided into sections the total value is budgeted to be $28 million.
The owner of the property is a very experienced developer, who is looking for JV partner/s to invest $1.5 million in $100,000 lots of mezzanine debt and participate in the development though to resource consent being approved. At that stage the mezzanine debt will be converted to shares in the development company giving them half the development profit realised through the sale of the sections to an experienced developer which will build and sell the houses.
While not guaranteed, such a developer may well offer the investors participation in that process. This Offer will not be open for long due to the time frame in which settlement of the land is required to take place, so if you’re interested email or call me urgently.
Luxury Townhouse Development
Expressions of interest are invited to participate as an investor in the development of 3 luxury townhouses in Takapuna on Auckland’s North Shore. The valuation of the three of them on completion is expected to be over $10 million.
TBK Capital is in the process of arranging the debt for the development and an equity component of $1 million being sought for a 30% holding. Further information will be made available to potential investors qualified by the developer and on signing a confidentiality agreement.
Beach Front Apartment Development
Our client has acquired the opportunity to purchase selected 2 and 3 bedroom apartments - at pre-construction pricing - in a development in a growing beachside community.  The objective is to on-sell the Apartments, before completion, at the substantially higher price now being asked as construction commences.
Investors need only a 10% deposit is required now, which will be held in trust prior to the apartments being completed. In the event all or any of the 8 Apartments are not on-sold prior to completion – when the balance of the purchase price is due – the developer has agreed to buy back those apartments and return the investors’ deposits. The return to investors over the period of the investment is forecast to be 37% on funds outlaid. This investment opportunity is only available for a short time, email or call me for a copy of the IM.
Fijian Subdivisions
A New Zealand accounting firm, with a long association with professional and political advisers in Fiji, has identified and acquired the right to acquire the long term lease of 2 properties close to Denerau. The first is 10 acres with a 150 metre beach front beside the golf course and the second is 6 acres near Nandi airport.
The intention is draw up and obtain consent for a residential subdivision for the first and a combined commercial and residential subdivision for the second, substantially increasing their value. Investors will be acquire shares in a New Zealand company which will own the properties via a Fijian subsidiary. The project will be managed by a partner in the accounting firm here. For further information email or call me.
Retirement Villages
As reported in my last newsletter the development of the retirement village in Paeroa has now closed fully subscribed, but the promoters are now about to build two more, one in Whakatane and the other in Christchurch. These License to Occupy villages can provide extraordinary profits to investors who participate in their development.
For example, a $1.2 million investment in the Paeroa village those investors are projected to get their $1.2 million back, plus a $4.4 million development profit tax free, and on completion a $900,000 annual income. And in 5 years’ time, unless they’ve sold it beforehand, they’ll have a hard asset worth $8 million. So if his sort of return interests you email me to join the list of prospective investors.
Composite Relocatable Housing
Our clients is an experienced boat builder who has designed and produced a prototype relocatable house using a combination of modern materials. The house is capable of being produced in one day - yes one day.
Global market research shows it has multiple markets, including enquiries from Australia, where it is intended to set up another manufacturing operation, and the Asia Pacific countries. One of its attractions is for disaster relief shown by interests from the Middle East. For further information email or call me.
