The HFF has sold 266 properties this year
From the beginning of the year to the end of November, the HFF has sold 266 properties as opposed to 116 properties during the same period in 2012. In addition, purchase offers for 109 properties have been accepted and bidders are currently engaged in financing the purchases. The HFF has sold 841 properties since the beginning of 2008.
The Asset Management Division of the HFF is currently registering all the Fund’s properties that have not been rented with estate agencies. Property preparation and registration have proven to be successful for already advertised apartments.
Out of the HFF’s 2,607 properties, 1,239 have been rented and 222 are considered completely uninhabitable. To emphasize, many of the properties listed empty and habitable, do not in their current condition qualify rental requirements. The Fund spends a maximum of ISK 1.5 million on renovations per property to make it available for rent. Any property in need of repair or renovations in excess of ISK 1.5 million will be put up for sale. The frequent misconception that the HFF keeps numerous plausible rentals vacant it thus false.
Further information on the HFF’s properties are listed in the monthly report.
