Property Types

Holiday, permanent, corporate or student accommodation

Secondly, you need to decide whether you are interested in managing a:-

  1. holiday apartment letting out short to medium stays
  2. permanent complex with units or townhouses with longer term stays
  3. corporate complex with short to medium type serviced apartments for business visitors
  4. student complex where typically rooms or complete apartments may be leased out for longer term stays


Firstly it is important for you to understand where you would like to live and whether CBD, Coastal or living in the suburbs are important to you. This decision can be made based on the amount you want to invest and also the type of lifestyle you want to lead.

Balance between lifestyle and income

To find the right property for you to invest in, it is important to understand the balance between where you want to live and what income you expect from the business.

Some people will have the goal to maximise income while some people will place priority on the standard of living in the managers’ apartment.

Of course you can achieve a high standard of both lifestyle and income but the premium properties that do offer this sell quickly. Therefore, it’s important to place yourself in a strong buying position with finance organised prior to finding the perfect property.

Place high importance on your own research by looking at many properties to understand the type of property that you are interested in.

  2. Partnerships
  3. Public Company

Running the business

This involves the management of a letting pool of apartments in the complex on behalf of the lot owners.  The individual apartment owners will pay commission and management fees for you to secure tenants/guests, collect rent and ensure the property is kept in good condition. The letting pool excludes live-in owners or owners who want to leave the apartment untenanted(otherwise known as 'lock-ups'). 

Managers’ Unit

You may own an apartment in the building known as the “Managers’ Unit”, usually this incorporates an office and reception area.  Some Management Rights do not have a Manager's unit or office to purchase.

Business Income

Body Corporate Salary

As Manager of the apartment complex, you will receive a monthly salary to be the caretaker and maintain the common areas. The salary is dependent on the type and size of the complex but a guide range is $1000-$1700 per lot per annum.

Letting Commission

The individual apartment owners will pay a commission and management fee for managing the letting of their properties, collecting and accounting for the rent and ensuring their property is kept in good condition. The average commission rates are 12%+GST for holiday apartments and 8.00%+GST for permanent letting.
