The Management Rights Market

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

Before I was thrust into Management Rights 18 years ago, quite by chance, I owned an apartment that had an onsite manager. The extent of my knowledge was that there was a mysterious old man who somehow ended up living in the office behind the lifts, who seemed obsessed with vacuuming hallways and if you used the spa after closing time, he’d come by and tell you to go to bed. That was all I knew. How this man came to be living in this office behind the lifts, why he was being paid to vacuum things, or by whom, and what higher power hadRead More →

I joined ARAMA about six months ago – the Australian Resident Accommodation Managers Association. I’ve attended plenty of events with them since then (See the events section on TheOnsiteManager now: https://theonsitemanager.com.au/news/event/ ), and am proud to support the industry association that supports our industry.

“Now is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning”Winston Churchill 1942. Churchill is of course famous for many an inspirational quote made all the more magnificent by virtue of the circumstances in which he found himself. I suspect somewhat more uplifting and motivating than the dross found on social media these days. Imagine addressing a population facing the existential threat that emerged in Europe in the late thirties and imploring the population to be the best they can be and to speak their own truth. Gimme a break! But, as always,Read More →

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 →
