Key Assets Issue 2 OUT NOW

Topics: Press Release, New Zealand, News, live auctions, success 0

Business remains good around the country with a steady flow of transactions having enabled continued growth of our key commercial management divisions in Auckland, Hamilton and Christchurch.


In the second NAI Harcourts Key Assets commercial property portfolio for 2018, General Manager Tony Kidd says, “In the main centres, we are seeing an ongoing tightening of the leasing markets, with continual changes as a result of the advancement of technology and workplace change thinking.

Investment properties with strong tenant covenants continue to be in high demand.”

In this issue of Key Assets, we hear from industry leaders from Spark NZ and Gaze Commercial who are leading the way by using innovation and technology to give them a competitive edge. As well as that we hear from ASB economists who deliver us ‘The NZ property market in a global context.’

We also bring you a variety of properties to the market, including the likes of a highly sought-after retail complex in Kitchener Road in Milford which is to be sold by deadline private treaty and a block of seven retail tenancies in Lake Road, Takapuna which is to be sold by auction.

Some of the properties listed in the latest Key Assets include:  

Lake Road

461-467 Lake Road, Takapuna. This multi-tenanted road-front retail complex in the heart of Takapuna is now available after being held by the current owners for 34 years; it is now time for fresh eyes on this single-level retail complex, which offers everything buyers are seeking including six tenancies, large 451m² freehold site and on-site car parks. With a CV of $3.3m and total net income of $133,154 p.a. (+GST) approx., it is in the sweet spot for a number of investors looking to secure a bricks-and-mortar investment and keep ahead of bank deposit rates. Such an opportunity is available, which is offered for sale by NAI Harcourts and is being sold by way of auction on Thursday 23 August at 1pm.
