The Challenge

Our client from Hong Kong was looking to invest circa £2 million into the London property market. They had limited knowledge of the geography and market conditions in central London.

The Perfect Conclusion

We successfully agreed the purchase of this newly converted two bed two bath apartment located on a garden square in WC1 at £100,000 less than the asking price. The property provides good potential yield due to high demand for rental apartments in the area from a number of University students and law professionals studying and working locally. This is one of two properties purchased by our client. We advised them to split the budget for the investment into two properties, rather than one, providing diversity of investment and better rental prospects. The property is also two bed, two bath, a bonus considering most other new build or newly converted flats in the area at this price are one beds. We will be managing the properties on an ongoing basis, providing an end to end service from purchase through to management when the tenants are in-situ.

The Unfair Advantage

Knowledge is power – we successfully rented the property within a week of it coming to the market, resulting in a 3.5% gross yield.
