World shipping, Logistics & Container Storage in Overdrive

Surging demand makes for an interesting container storage proposition. Shipping containers used for export to Australia are in demand! And once the shipping containers arrive, shipping bottlenecks and congestion make it slow to return. In the meantime, whilst a place on the ship for a container is found, the storage of containers is the only solution. Container dealers, “Gateway Containers”, […]

Welcome to Box Commercial

It’s all about income-generating property.

By Robert Stanley-Turner

 Welcome to Box Commercial Estate Agents. 

 

We offer selected Australasian property investment opportunities, some with fractionised ownership.  

The right investment with fractionised ownership can give investors extraordinary advantages compared with traditional ownership of an investment.  

To explain, fractionised ownership is an investing structure which splits the ownership of the property into multiples or in other words fractions of the whole, like a shareholding in a public company trading on the ASX. 

Another way of viewing fractionisation of ownership is simply “co-investing”. The co-investment structure differs from freehold ownership. One of the ways, is where a “trust” structure is established, and investments are pooled with others.  

Then, there is the second structure called the “syndicate”. This is where investor’s become shareholders in the ownership of the entity which directly owns the property. 

When a new property investment is identified as suited for co-investment, we notify investors the moment it becomes available. Interested investors are then referred to the investment’s manager. 

From there, investors receive an investing proposal detailing the property being acquired, expected quarterly returns and date to which the property will be later sold.   

Each specific property will be acquired for normally 20 or more investors and each investor will contribute differing amounts but normally in-excess of $50,000 for each property. In the past, these investments have been located all over Australia and range from Hotels, Shopping Centres, Warehouses and Homemaker centres.   

We have detailed some of the features on our co-investing page, together with an explanatory embedded video. 

Alternatively, for entrepreneurs interested in initiating “new” investments our “future” investment section offers freehold unimproved land ready to create new investments. We offer this land in the expectation that it can be further developed into income-generating investment property.  

We can even help you to identify tenants or rent payers for your unimproved land. We have a particular type of rent payer in mind. 

Let me elaborate… 

For many years we have transacted storage investments. Storage investments include self-storage, caravan, container, battery or perhaps a mix of all. I started working with self-storage owners 30 years ago and, storage investments like self-storage have produced some amazing returns.  

There are couple of major reasons why storage operations combined with property ownership is such a successful combination.  One of the pivotal factors is the fact that the rental is reliable. It is reliable because it was paid by numerous rent payers. In the case of a modern self-storage facility there are thousands of storers (rent payers). In an overall sense, it doesn’t matter if a storage unit renter defaults or vacates the unit, there will always be 900 plus other rent payers to keep the income flowing

 

Perhaps we can use word “fractionalised” as each rent payer provides a fraction or part of the total income? 

So, whether it’s an investment which fractionises ownership such as a co-investment or one that fractionises income such as storage facility, the template is similar. The reliability of the investment is increased because the risk is spread across numerous entities 

 

Anyway, my company, Box Commercial offers fractionised investments. Welcome to our company.
