Our Track Record

Land Re-zone – Queenstown. Over 130% Total Annual Return (Unrealised)

5-hectare land with a luxury lodge in Queenstown

Rationale for purchase:

  • Land in Queenstown was (and still is) in very limited supply and therefore it would only be a few years until the property was rezoned from lifestyle rural to residential. This provided the potential for a very favourable value uplift
  • Additionally, there was enough income to service some debt and thus increase returns for investors

The Result

  • Purchased for $5m
  • Settled on November 2018
  • Council approved re-zone in June 2022 (now awaiting ministerial sign off)
  • March 22 - Registered valuation $19.6m. Valued at $400 s/m
  • Neighbouring property, considered inferior, sold for $450 s/m, but valuer could not fully rely on sale as not yet settled
  • Therefore, the property is potentially worth $21m
  • Average total annual return as at March 2022 - over 130%
Ladies Mile (1080x1080)

Negotiated Lease – Hamilton Lodge, Average Total Return 21% p.a.**

32-room boarding house in Hamilton purchased in 2017

Rationale for purchase:

  • 32-rooms
  • Purchased in 2017
  • Undertook some cosmetic renovations
  • Managed by Erskine Owen as boarding house while we searched for a party to lease to

The Result
