Gaining a passive incoming with the assistance of a 5-star hotel!
A passive income is something that many of us dream about, getting our hard-earned cash to start working for us. We get an income without having to lift a finger! Earning a passive income is something that is very achievable so long as you have a reasonable amount of capital to invest. Naturally, as with all investments some investments carry a greater risk that others and, as a general rule, the higher the risk, the higher the potential return.
The most common ways of generating a passive income are through the dividend from stocks and shares or via a rental income from an investment property. Stocks and shares are by no means as secure as they were a decade ago and even investing in blue chip companies doesn’t guarantee that a dividend will be paid. Investment properties are a far safer option so long as you do your due diligence however this doesn’t mean that they will definitely be free from issues.
Most headaches attached to investments properties, assuming you did your due diligence and invested wisely, relate to the tenants. The problems come in the form of failure to pay rent on time and not taking care of the property. These problems can mean that the passive element of your investment is completely removed and the problems can take up a lot of your time and cause a great deal of stress. Management companies can assist here although this will reduce your ROI.
One relatively new concept that has come to light in recent years has been the rental guarantee concept. This usually involves units being built purely aimed at those looking to generate an income in the form of rent. The properties are sold and then immediately rented back from the investor by the developer themselves or a connected third party. The investor gets a guaranteed return for a set number of years giving the investor plenty of assurances. The developer sells their units and investors gets a healthy return so a win, win situation for all.
In fact, these rental guarantee concepts have proved so popular that they are now being offered by some very well-established 5 star hotels. This gives greater credibility to these rental guarantee concepts as the hotels have a huge financial backing as well as large marketing budgets. Investors have to do nothing for the duration of the guarantee, just receive their income making it the perfect form of passive income.
Some of the best rental guarantee concepts available here in Thailand involve investing in properties managed by these well-known, international 5-star hotels. The Amari in the popular tourist destination of Pattaya is a completed projected and the guaranteed returns on offer from the developer are 5% p.a. for five years and then projected returns of 8% p.a. in the years thereafter.
For this you are investing in a 5-star hotel with a 5-star management team and when you consider the prime location and the potential for capital growth it should give all investors grounds for optimism.
Similar schemes are available in Phuket in properties that are still under construction. Investors are offered a guaranteed 7% p.a. for five years and in both cases projected returns of over 10% p.a. in the following years. The hotels concerned are from Best Western and Ramada, again household names that anyone would be proud to be associated with.
So, if you are looking to gain a passive income and are looking for healthy, realistic returns, why not investor in one of these rental guarantee projects and make the most of the assistance you can get from a 5-star hotel?
