An Investment for our time

August 12, 2010Article by Ray Withers

The international property market is changing, like everything else in the current economic climate, to reflect the shifting priorities of investors.  This is why we are sourcing several new types of product.

For example, how would you like to invest in one of the most viable investment market – a luxury hotel with occupancy of 80% and fixed returns of 10%?  Complete before 15th September and all legal fees will be paid by the developer.

Imagine what it would be like to own your own suite of rooms.  You could stay there by arrangement at whatever time of the year you chose, enjoying all the hotel’s five-star facilities.  Or you could simply let the rooms and collect income from the proceeds.  There would be no management chores – you could literally sit back and enjoy your share in the hotel.

This product has the following outstanding features:

  • Invest from just $40,000 (£26,700)
  • Guaranteed annual net yield of 10% for first 5 years
  • Projected yield of 10.9% in years 5-10
  • Projected 296% Return on Investment over a 10 year period
  • Returns payable from beginning of your investment
  • Built-in exit strategy at year 10
  • World class hotel management company in place
  • Secure title and ownership
  • Prices are 17% discount to RICS valuation

All this is now possible with a special package put together by Property Frontiers.  It enables you to buy your own share in a luxury hotel complex at far less than the usual market rate.  This provides a share in the luxury travel market to middle-income investors or the chance to extend an existing portfolio without personal risk.

This is only an outline of what we currently have on offer: contact Property Frontiers for full details.  I cite it as an example of the new types of property investment options now open and also as an example of new ways of thinking about the international property market. Such products show that, ironically, these straitened times can be used to extend rather than diminish opportunities for investors.
