Unlisted Property Funds

January 31st, 2017|

Unlisted property funds allows for a system for buyers searching for commercial and industrial property to take part in a investment purchase they might not possess the funds to normally invest themselves. Unlisted property funds or trusts are also known as syndicates, are an alternate method to purchase large property. Traders purchase ‘units’ in a trust qualities or holding investment property, that are handled with one of our qualified investment managers. Usually the first capital remains used before property resource(s) comes once the trust ends, and any net profits are spread amongst the buyers. Throughout the trust's existence, investors receive income distributions which [...]

June 2016 – Emerald Hill Retail Precinct South Melbourne

June 1st, 2016|

PROPERTY SUBDIVISION We recently received approval from Heritage Victoria for the proposed subdivision into 12 allotments. This approval was conditional on four conditions, three of which were painting (some of which we were already intending to do). The fourth point related to some patching of some rendering on certain chimneys. Our consultants Lovell Chen advise us this is a very good outcome. As prefaced in the last update, we now have the majority of approvals required for the subdivision from the various Authorities, which is very pleasing. The painting will require specialist resources as it includes the extensive verandah and [...]

187 Todd Road, Port Melbourne – May 2016

May 23rd, 2016|

The Port Melbourne investment market continues to be tightly held. Major works continue in the immediate vicinity with the massive extension of Web Dock well underway.

570 St Kilda Road, Melbourne – May 2016

May 23rd, 2016|

The supply of office space in the St Kilda Road office market has shrunk by almost 20% from its peak in 1992. In the last 6 months, over 15,000m2 of space has been withdrawn for residential redevelopment alone which is equivalent to two buildings the size of 570 St Kilda Road. Virtually no new office construction has occurred in the last 25 years to compensate for the withdrawal. Due to the diminishing supply and consistent demand, the vacancy rate in St Kilda Road is forecast to fall to 15 year lows in the next 18 months. Office rents have continued [...]

658 Church St, Richmond – May 2016

May 1st, 2016|

The city fringe office market continues to perform very well from a leasing and sales perspective. There has been six years of positive net absorption of office space and continued steady employment growth which augurs well for the inner suburban office markets. Major companies are focussed on attracting and keeping quality staff and this has resulted in a move to vibrant, well public transported suburbs like Richmond. With no new office supply and the CBD office vacancy rate predicted to decrease further, city fringe office rents are predicted to increase with prime properties anticipated to outperform. MARKET UPDATE The investment [...]
