Returning $51,145 pa net on a 4-year lease expiring in 2 years’ time, the property was leased to Wallpaper Brokers, a successful interior design business who have occupied the building since 2016.

The older-style property comprised a building area of 214 sqm on a generous Commercial 1 zoned land of  271 sqm approx. The property sold for $1,640,000 which shows a very sharp yield of 3.1%. Dean Alexander said, “The strong result reflected the hunger in the investment market looking for well-located retail investment opportunities.”
