Current Key Focus Area
- Birmingham & Slough
Some key factors that have positioned Birmingham as the destination city in the UK:
- Unique gross under supply & high housing demand(Current developments are delivering around 12,000 houses p/a against the required 18,000 houses p/a).
- £8 Billion investment in infrastructure in Birmingham. (The “Big City Plan” projects new jobs being created for another 50,000 people).
- Five Universities – 73,000+ students, 10,000 Far East & Middle East Students(Important to note: Birmingham has a 80 – 90% retention rate on students so once they are finished with their studies they stay and work in the city).
In addition to the points above, companies especially those in the tech and financial industries have realised that operating in the country’s capital “London” is extremely expensive and they have decided to move HQ operations to Birmingham.
Some of the companies below that have moved to Birmingham:
- Deustche Bank
With this move a massive housing demand has been created by all the staff for these large companies moving to Birmingham.
In addition to Birmingham booming locally, it has also become a commuter destination for those working in London and wanting to live outside of the most expensive city in the UK. The HS2 (High Speed Rail) will be in operation from 2026 and will take commuters from Birmingham into Canary Wharf station in central London in 42 minutes compared to the current 2 hour travel time by rail.
The properties offered are
- Studio Apartments.
- 1 bed apartments,
- 2 bed apartments
- 3 bed room apartments
The above apartments offer a range suitable for young professionals, high-end executives or affluent international students. This means that they cater for the entire life cycle of a property tenant.
Investments start at around £180,000 to £399,000 and they offer a geared / financed option. 30% deposit and the balance is geared/financed with UK banks at a very low interest rate compared to SA. This allows the investors to use less working capital upfront and still enjoy great capital growth on the asset and a solid rental yield in Sterling.
This is a hands off, low maintenance investment and the entire investment life cycle is managed for you.
Nett returns on the investment apartments range from between 6 – 9%+ net ROI depending on the deal structure and the development. In addition, capital appreciation on the asset is around 20 – 30% on a five year hold.
In addition to Birmingham, they have some fantastic developments along the commuter belt into London. These include developments in Slough which is fast becoming a key destination for those moving out of the country’s capital and commuting into work daily. Slough is also perfectly positioned to Heathrow Airport creating a massive demand for housing with airline staff (pilots and hostesses etc.)
