$6.15 million profit in 2 years!
During 2011-12 I commissioned Prosper Group to find a multi-tenant commercial building for investment. Following many months of patient search and negotiation I eventually bought an attractive property with long term future development upside in October 2009. Detailed and patient due diligence process assured me it would be a good medium-long term hold. Proper Group managed all aspects of the purchase, management and subsequent sale.
During the next few years the boom of conversion of commercial sites to residential apartments rapidly grew. After many unsolicited enquiries and offers we decided to openly market the site. This was handled very well by Prosper and Ray White Commercial resulted in my accepting a very attractive offer December 2014 with delayed settlement February 2016.
Also in late 2012 through Prosper Group I bought another multi-tenant Commercial property with the same objective and criteria. Planning changes in the area have created significant capital gain that will be realised in 3-4 years.
In April 2009 I had bought a large single tenant industrial building that has been an excellent stable, simple well performing investment.
