Burleigh Heads, Australia – Case Study

Whether you own your property primarily as an investment or as somewhere to spend your holidays, listing it as a holiday rental can be a great way to increase your return on investment.

Many people, when considering renting their property, believe that permanent lettings will ensure the best rental return and a hassle-free investment. However, renting a short-term rental property can be a highly profitable endeavour.

Permanent Tenancy Vs Holiday Stay

Depending on the location, it may be possible to charge the equivalent of a regular (permanent) monthly rent for a one-week holiday stay. Leasing your property for only 12 weeks a year as a holiday rental would generate the same investment return as a permanent tenant. Any additional weeks simply increases your return, and the property is still available for you to enjoy for your own holidays.

Property Management

We recently secured a beautiful rental in Burleigh Heads, Queensland for $650/week (price prior to Maisonnets). A rental of this kind and condition ranges from $600 to $680 for a 2 bed, 2 bath walk up property, without all of the resort style facilities and elevators.

In order to get the most out of the property, our team re-styled, painted, upgraded (down to the knives and forks), and furnished the property. This cost a total of $13,000. 

What We Offer

Maisonnets offer a full set-up and styling for a small investment of $10,000 to $15,000, depending on the property’s needs.

Based on the time of year (September 2022), it is expected to get anywhere between $200 to $500 per night. With this said, the average would be around $280/night with an estimated 75% occupancy, giving the owners a $76,650 pa return. This is in contrast to the property being a long-term rental at $650/week, totalling $33,800 pa.

It is important to highlight that there are properties within the same building being occupied 80% of the year. However, the rates are lower due to dated furnishings and the condition of the properties.
