1. Site selection

The preferred location of the apartment is located near the business center, campus, or at least has easy access. Likewise with access in and out of and to the apartment environment. Remember, apartment enthusiasts are generally workers, professionals, and businessmen with high mobility.

Also know who your target market is. If targeting the expatriates, then understand first their habits and lifestyle. Generally they have a community and tend to live in adjacent neighborhoods.

2. Legality aspect

For security, also the completeness of apartment permit, such as block plan, preliminary permit, IMB, and certificate of land (Hak Guna Bangunan or HGB). This is so that you avoid the loss so that the ownership status of purchased apartment units do not get into trouble.

Or to just take advantage of property agent services that can also help you to the aspect of legality. Each property agent must also have its own specialty, for example an agent with an apartment specialization or an agent specializing by area.

For rental of apartment units in full furnish condition, must also be provided funds to fill the interior room equipment.

6. Return On Investment

What kind of return do you expect from your apartment investment? Since rental income is similar to interest income on deposit and bond coupon bonds, people usually use the deposit interest benchmark as the lowest benchmark.

But you can also expect higher ROI. The reason; because apartment investment is long term (more than 5 years), so you can also use benchmark medium and long-term government bond yields.

For example, if current deposits range from 6% p.a, and medium-term and long-term government bonds 9% 12%; then you can peg your investment ROI's investment accordingly or slightly higher than that benchmark.
