“We expect a great deal of interest in this offering,” adds ResortBrokers’ Managing Director, Trudy Crooks, Not only is this an exceptional asset but we’re seeing a huge amount of interest in regional accommodation assets in particular as investors chase higher returns than metropolitan areas. We’ve seen an influx of new money in regional accommodation assets in recent times from both small-scale and large-scale investors. Add to the fact that accommodation assets typically have higher yields overall compared to many other property/business types.”
