New Zealand Businesses for Sale

 Are you looking for a business to buy in New Zealand?

The benefits of buying an established business as opposed to starting a new venture from scratch are obvious:

A newcomer to New Zealand can take advantage of a well-established customer base and at the same time acquires instant local market knowledge.

Buying an existing business will not only help you to generate an income for you and your family, but can also be a vehicle for obtaining permanent residence for New Zealand, as it might represent the foundation for a Business Visa application.

Businesses that tend to be especially popular with immigrants are typically – but not exclusively – based in the tourism and hospitality sectors.

Motels, camping grounds, backpackers, restaurants and cafes and New Zealand's famous adventure tourism operations are all possible ventures that might suit the lifestyle a migrant is looking for.

Farewell Spit Nature Reserve is of international importance, jutting some 30km into the Tasman Sea, with saltmarshes, open mudflats, freshwater brackish lakes and dunes providing habitats for over a hundred bird species. The unusual shape of the coastline sadly seems to fool whales' navigation systems and beachings are common here. Take a guided safari tour in a 4WD bus to the old Farewell Spit lighthouse, the tour buses will pick you up at our gate, we are happy to arrange bookings for you.
Alternatively you can walk to the outer beach (2km) and inner beach (4km); both provide good views of the spit.

The Pakawau Project - Golden Bay

The Pakawau Campground is located on a pristine beach in Golden Bay, New Zealand about 10 kilometers from Farewell Spit in the township of Pakawau.  The campground comprises almost 3 acres with 240 meters of beach frontage protected by a rock wall. 

 Sustainable Ventures Ltd. bought the property in 2006 and has spent the intervening time designing and engineering the proposed buildings, water and sewage systems and obtaining all the Resource Consents and permissions to carry out the project to completion.  Given the strong opposition initially encountered, it is less and less likely that a similar project would ever be approved in this low density and rural part of New Zealand.  That alone makes this a very unique property.

 The market in Golden Bay has been slow during the last four years of worldwide recession and housing price decline, but the prices have not fallen significantly.  The competing properties for this project are “baches” (single family cottages and homes) on similar beach property ranging from $500,000 and up plus bare sections with zoning for single family house construction for $2to300,000.

The Pakawau Camp has since the 1950’s been a place where Kiwi families have come for their summer vacations with children because of the beauty and the safety of the beach for small children.  However to continue to operate the site as a camp is not economical given the current prices of real estate on the beach.

The project aims at a target market of people who either want to live there as permanent residents or own a second home for vacations and rental income when they are not in residence.  The percentage of permanent residents in Pakawau is about 50% currently.  One of the advantages of this project will be that while each unit will be on its own “unit title” allowing for bank financing, there will also be a “body corporate” which takes care of all common property, maintenance, and rental bookings and servicing, under contract.  For people who choose this ownership option, this will be a hassle free way to live or vacation plus have the opportunity to make some money through rentals.

The average price of the 20 permitted units is projected at $450,000.  All units are oriented toward the north for passive solar gain and ability to employ solar hot water and electricity.  The entire complex is designed by award winning architect Min Hall of Arthouse Architecture using green building principles, yet retains a local Kiwi bach flavor.  Each unit has an outdoor private patio and a view of the sea.

The mix of units is 5 single bedroom, 12 two bedroom, and 3 three bedroom units, in three 6 unit horseshoe shaped complexes and one two unit building to make 20 units.  The Resource Consent runs for ten years and the buildings can be built in 4 stages over that time frame.

This project could satisfy the investment requirements for up to two partners who wish to become New Zealand permanent residents/citizens as the asking price is $3 million NZD (plus GST which is actually returned by the government as long as it comprises an expense of the future development).  When the project is sold out all monies will have been recovered plus a profit.
