Serviced Apartments are bad investments. Why? For the following reasons:
1. Lenders have massive restrictions by way of LVR and policy
2. Valuations fluctuate normally due to a lack of comparable sales
3. Capital Growth is limited due to the above points
Some lenders have further restrictions whereby they will not lend if the Serviced Apartment (SA) does not allow for the owner to reside within the unit. All lenders will require that the SA be fully contained which means Kitchen and Bathroom.
