Hotel room for sale is available in many high-end hotels and the concept is if you love the hotel room, buy it mortgage it and earn the continuous money from it. Sometimes a few friends buy together a hotel room available for sale in a hotel for investment purposes. The rooms are available from few thousand dollars to more than hundred thousand dollars depending on the type of hotel and the facilities provided with the room.
The hotel room for sale sometimes comes with the additional benefits such as room service, swimming pool facility, gymnasium, tennis courts, and restaurant and sauna facilities.
The hotel room for sale is benefiting those people who love a particular city and regularly visit the city. The concept for hotel room for sale is more than a decade old now and is becoming popular in some of the cities in United States. The hotel gives permission to use the hotel for the desired duration of your stay in the hotel and for the remaining period the hotel will offer for rent. A certain percentage of the rent received by the hotel is given to you.
The hotel industry is continuously growing and in the near future a lot of new hotels are required to meet the demand of hotels in United States and that needs a lot of investments. To meet the financial requirement and investing in new hotels, hotel management partially finance money from offering hotel room for sale and now more and more hotel rooms are being sold. However, these hotels will have to share their profits with the hotel room buyers and therefore they will have to advertise their hotels in a big way to attract more and more customers to retain their profit.
Some of the factors that a buyer will need to monitor before selecting a particular hotel room is its occupancy rate and split of rent received from the hotel room. These factors are of primary importance and the other factors that should also be considered are location, hotel’s popularity and the hotel’s general reputation. If the hotel is popular and has a good reputation, it is expected to do a good business and therefore a good return from the investment is expected.
If the occupancy rate is too poor, the room will remain often vacant and the rent room received from it will not be sufficient enough to cover the annual expenses. A poor split rent received by the owner or poor occupancy of the hotel room may not generate sufficient money for repaying the mortgage and therefore can be risky. However most of the time the hotels do not disclose the occupancy figures at the time of buying hotel room and therefore the decision before investing in hotel room should be carefully taken.
