The Management Rights Market

Buying Management Rights, Selling Management Rights, market outlook, etc

Starting July 2020, in the post Brisbane and SEQ lockdown, we as a population, couldn’t wait to travel.   And…. this need-to-travel remains! Short stay operators, on the average, had a rough time of it from March to June last year, with the majority forced to switch rooms from short to long stay.  There was simply little choice. Of course, this saw the business bottom lines deflate both significantly and rapidly – mostly within the month of March.  Beware the Ides of March as they say! However, that determined need-to-travel-anywhere has seen almost every operator who has reverted partially or wholly back to short stay,Read More →

We were forwarded an interesting proclamation from the garrulous folks at AccomProperties this week stating rather spuriously their website was achieving “record sales activity”, and conflating this with a misleading side-by-side graphic of our site which apparently “speaks for itself”. They had of course rated themselves A and us F based on a mysterious “G.T. Metrix”… Now look, I love a good Gin & Tonic as much as the next guy, and I’m sure it’s a great metrix on a hot summer’s day (keeps the malaria away after all) but I wouldn’t be measuring my website’s performance as an effective marketing portal on a G.T.Read More →

I recently I came across this rather awesome Management Rights marketing video put together by Tim Crooks and Alex Cook from Resort Brokers. This is definitely one of the best MR Videos I’ve ever seen. Beautifully shot and art directed and just a little bit quirky, as you’d expect from these guys. …oh, it’s a pretty good listing too. Having actually lived next door to the Hendra complex I watched it being developed with enthusiasm and it’s an absolutely stunning property, so don’t forget to reach out to Tim or Alex if you’d like more information – see the link here: https://www.theonsitemanager.com.au/permanent-management-rights/BrisbaneCity-QLD-21067390 … But also,Read More →

I’ve been writing these bulletins for many years now and inevitably one runs out of interesting stuff to say.  Most months I build a mental picture of what I’m going to write about, procrastinate until the deadline date and then frantically try to render what’s in my head into something comprehensible. I often find it difficult to find things to write about, hence the sometimes rabbling social commentary and hopefully amusing anecdotes. In fact, the only time it’s easy to come up with content is when something extraordinary happens. Something like a global financial crisis, a surprise election outcome or a pandemic.  In recent timesRead More →

I remember after the GFC I said something like, wow, now I’ve seen everything.   Wrong!
