The secret to creating wealth through property

Buy to Let:

Firstly there is a large, varied tenancy demand in Reading. From single professionals to young families, tenants will be looking to rent a range of property types. The high demand has resulted in healthy premiums being secured by landlords and yields of 5% or higher being comfortably achieved. 

House of Multiple Occupancy:

Due to the high volume of employment, post graduates and a demographic predominantly consisting of a younger generation - the room share option is extremely popular in Reading. This type of accommodation is cost effective for tenants and the standard of accommodation has improved significantly over the past few years. Yields of in the region of 12% can be achieved where the return on investment is between 15-18%.

Title Splits / Conversions:

The re-sale value for one and two bedroom flats in Reading is extremely high, which makes HMOs popular for investors and homeowners alike. Because of the demand it usually results in, premium re-sale values are easily achievable.  One and two bedrooms also demand premium rents which make them ideal to retain, rent and then refinance.  

Flip:

Re-sale values are strong due to demand, which justifies a premium being achieved on the re-sale. Larger investments not only provides greater returns but also often avoids stiff competition from other investors and generally offers more potential to convert and extend. Some of our biggest margins have come from properties in and around the town. These offer a variety of investment opportunities including rear extensions, loft conversions and the ability to introduce en-suites. Because of this, you can add value in many different ways and attract a wide target audience on the re-sale.
