Property Investment

Those of you who read my last Newsletter – Investment in Property - may recall I said “Many years ago, when I was introduced to my first job in Investment Banking, I still remember the advice from the founder of the business saying “Property has been, is now, and always will be the best investment.”

Those of you who read my last Newsletter – Investment in Property - may recall I said “Many years ago, when I was introduced to my first job in Investment Banking, I still remember the advice from the founder of the business saying “Property has been, is now, and always will be the best investment.”
In recent years, from a personal and business point of view, I’ve been fascinated by the explosion in the demand for property and the prices obtained here – especially in Auckland and other cities.
The current situation is aptly summed up in an article in which reports on residential property “For the first time, data from showed all-time high national average asking prices, combined with record lows in new listings and total homes available for sale”.  Its author Vanessa Taylor writes “The total number of homes available for sale reached never before seen lows around New Zealand, while the national average asking price sat over $700,000 for the first time since records began 13 years ago. We saw a record low for new listings nationwide”.

In the meanwhile the demand for houses cannot meet supply, major reasons being a combination of high immigration and low interest rates.
This continuing interest in property has prompted me to update the investment opportunities we have in which qualified investors can partake in the high profits available from property development.
Retirement Village development
The increase in the population here not only brings up the demand for houses now, but also the future demand to meet the retirement requirements as people age.
So when I read a recent article in the Herald on Oceania Healthcare’s interim report showing a net profit after tax from $1.3 million to $14.9m for the half-year to November 30, 2019, this came as no surprise to me.
Nor did the fact that we received huge interest from investors in the retirement village in Paeroa (now fully funded) and the new one in Amberley just out of Christchurch - which we expect to close fully funded in the next week or so.
The Amberley village predicts a 64% return to investors from its development profit. If that interests you please respond now to this email for a copy of the IM.
Luxury Home development
Our client is an experienced property investor and developer who intends to build a luxury home on a vacant elevated site atop a prized bay-side location known as ‘The Cliffs’ in Nelson.
The house contains one spacious master bedroom, with an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe, plus a further two bedrooms sharing a second ensuite. In the center there is an open plan kitchen with a walk in pantry and separate toilet and a spacious dining and lounge area with a feature double sided fireplace.
A new company has been formed to undertake the purchase of the land and build and sell the completed house. This will be owned 50% by interests associated with the promoter as his fee for securing, arranging and managing the construction of the house and its sale. He is also providing a personal guarantee on the debt raised to assist in the purchase of the section and the development of the house. The investors will not be required to guarantee that loan.
The other 50% will be owned by the investors who participate in this Offer. The budget shows a time frame of 2 years to build and sell the house and a 40% pre-tax return to investors. A copy of the IM is available on request.
Funeral Home development
Stonehaven Funerals & Memorials Limited is a funeral business in Gisborne that the owners started as a monument business in 2005. Its existing premises are too small to meet demand.

They now have consent to build a new Funeral Home building. The facility will include a public auditorium with seating up to 350 people, a smaller auditorium for small services with seating up to 50 people, two onsite after hours viewing facilities, arrangement rooms, a mortuary, on site catering facilities, a monument sales area and an area for a cremator.

The complex will have car parking for up to 61 cars.  There will also be a large work area for the monumental work and bench top fabrication.

A new property company has been formed to purchase the land and consent and build a new Funeral Home on the site; which is directly opposite Gisborne’s main public cemetery. Bank finance for the development has been arranged. The existing operating company will enter into a 15 year lease with generous terms and rights of renewal.

The promoters will also provide the land and consents for a share in the property company. Investors will receive yearly interest and capital returns on their investment. They have also offered to give investors an optional buyout in 4 years’ time. A copy of the IM is available on request.
