The concept attracts quality tenants by having safe, secure, modern and comfortable, furnished “studio” accommodation with off street parking. These are the “Key Workers” with good jobs, who for whatever reason need single accommodation near to work or play.
Research shows mature, employed people, renting in well appointed “share” houses tend stay in their rooms and go out to mix with friends rather than fraternizing with housemates. Bedroom space has been maximized to meet this private space preference. The houses have a comfortable main room with well-appointed furnishings to allow share house mingling if desired. The kitchen and dining area supports small dinner parties to entertain friends.
Electricity: The landlord holds the electricity supply account and the tenants pay the landlord for electricity they have used. Each bedroom is wired on a separate circuit through a private electrical meter mounted in the meter box. The agent reads the private meters each billing cycle and the tenants are charged for power used at the standard rate per kWh for domestic users at the time of signing the lease. The tenant is able to monitor power usage by reading the private meter. Hot water is by two roof mounted solar hot water services with electrical boost.
Internet: The landlord provides a modem and internet account.
Cable TV: Provided
The rent per room will vary from $200 to over $300 per week depending upon the area in which the houses are sited.
