Bayleys is pitching four retail properties spread across Greater Auckland as ideal prospects for entry-level commercial property investors and small portfolio owners.

The four comprise a liquor outlet in the city’s northern beachside suburb of Orewa; a cafe with an apartment above in one of its high-end suburbs; a block of shops in the east and a dairy and convenience outlet in the southern outskirts.

These retail properties are being sold individually by Bayleys Real Estate, with just the land and buildings on offer in all instances.

The four, listed in Bayleys’ Total Property portfolio magazine, are:

  • Land and building housing a block of seven tenancies at 8-14 Moore St in Howick. The recently refurbished 434sq m two-level building sits on 875sq m of freehold land, and generates a combined annual income of $143,965 from the six retail tenancies and one commercial lease. The property is being marketed for sale by deadline private treaty through Bayleys Manukau, with offers closing at 2pm on April 12. Salespeople Tony Chaudhary, Janak Darji and Amy Weng say it is a split-risk investment opportunity. Tenancies, include a drycleaning outlet, a sushi shop, a cafe, a boutique designer second-hand clothing store, a hair dressing salon, an office, and an Indian restaurant.

“The tenancies are operating on leases with differing rights of renewal, most having two-yearly rent reviews. The rear of the property has substantial car parking, and the operational expenses are shared among the retail tenancies,” says Chaudhary.

  •  The land and building at 571 Remuera Rd, which houses a trendy cafe at street level, with a two-bedroom apartment above, generating a combined revenue of $50,000 per annum. The cafe is on four-year lease running through to 2021 with two further four-year rights of renewal.

This property is being marketed for sale through a tender process, closing 4pm on April 12. Salespeople Andrew Wallace, Genevieve Thompson-Ford and Cameron Melhuish say ground floor tenant Table Talk cafe has a high volume of foot traffic, being located in the middle of the popular Upland Rd shopping Melhuish says the cafe’s long-standing operator is also the tenant of the accommodation upstairs — delivering a strong relationship with the property’s owner, and a high level of tenant satisfaction. Both premises have been renovated, creating a modern feel to what was a character building.
