The new way to own


Date: 13th November 2007


The new way to own

The Quarters is an innovative property marketing company based
in Auckland that is at the forefront of the new concept of fractional ownership of freehold property in New Zealand. The Quarters will be the first marketing company in New Zealand to specialise in packaging up fractional property packages and offering The Quarters experience. The company will be offering quarter share titles in some of the best holiday destinations around NZ. The company is being officially opened for business on the 15th November 2007 and will be celebrated on the Waitamata Harbour.

The tradition of owning a “Kiwi Bach” is now unfortunately out of the reach of most New Zealanders given the significant increase in price of coastal and lakeside property. The Quarters is providing a unique solution to this by offering the chance to own a quarter share in the freehold of desirable holiday properties. For an affordable sum you can obtain your own quarter share freehold title in a unit situated in Queenstown (4 sites), Turangi, Whitianga, Raglan, Ruakaka and Doubtless Bay. Some of these come with extras such as furniture packages, boats and accessories.

So, what do you get for a quarter share? One week every month totalling 13 weeks a year, forever. Statistically people spend an average of 10 – 17 days in a holiday property per annum. By being a quarter share title owner you are entitled to 91 days a year in a majority of the properties offered. Should you decide not to use your week in any given month of the year, your property may be rented out via The Quarters Property Management system and derive income.
