We’re pleased to be able to utilise our extensive market knowledge and suite of comparable properties to provide you with advice on the likely rental returns which may be generated by your property. The rental ranges shown here are reflective of the current market and cover an average of peak and off-peak rates. Renting your property as a holiday home is an attractive option, particularly to owners who seek flexibility of use combined with strong income potential. Taking holidays at times to suit you is a significant drawcard when comparing the advantages of holiday letting to the income security of long-term letting. Bear in mind, however, that we have a sister company offering long-term letting so are able to maximise your income through use of a combined letting strategy - please let me know if this is something which interests you. For owners living outside of the Queenstown area, the superior level of management, comprehensive communication and detailed attention to property maintenance ensure peace of mind wherever in the world you may be. The rental estimate provided overleaf takes into consideration every aspect of the property and its situation, including: • Property specification • Size of property • Number of people to be accommodated • Location • Views • Position within the market • Owner usage (and timing of this)

Occupancy Occupancy rates are the biggest variable in any holiday home, varying between 90 and 300+ nights per annum, with the majority achieving 150-250 nights per annum.

The estimated rental value provided is our opinion only and is relevant as at the date of this document and to market conditions and circumstances prevailing at this time. Relaxaway accept no responsibility for any person who relies on this appraisal for financial purposes.

S E T T I N G R AT E S Whilst the rates outlined summarise our initial thoughts on the property, please be aware that these may require amendment following a more detailed viewing of the property and understanding of your expectations around income and occupancy. We have found that some owners wish to utilise the property for themselves, friends and family throughout the year, so it’s worth noting that the timing and volume of this can significantly impact the income potential of the home. To calculate accurate yields we will also require information on rates, insurance and body corporate fees.
