Investors paid 54.83p per share in the New Listing for this property, and it became available on the Resale market November 16th 2015.
The potential for amplified returns through gearing, combined with securing these new-build houses in an area of strong forecast growth, makes this a highly attractive investment opportunity:
- The investment comprises four new-build 4-Bed Freehold houses and is geared at 50% loan-to-value (LTV) of the purchase price. Gearing gives enhanced exposure to property price movements, and the potential for amplified returns; though investors must note amplified negative returns if prices fall.
- The property is in Hastings, a coastal town in the South-East of England. Savills, in their forecasts for house price growth by region, have this as the region of the country they expect to appreciate most in value over the next 4 years - a predicted 22.7% (2016 & 2017: 6.5% p.a, 2018 & 2019: 4% p.a.)
- Hastings has recently been named in the top five English ‘heritage assets’ in the country. The town also has a growing arts and culture scene that is making it an increasingly attractive destination and place to live.
Our exit strategy is to sell the units individually rather than as a single investment, thereby realising the discount that we have secured from buying in bulk.

The mortgage is being provided by a major high street bank and has a five-year fixed interest rate of 3.99%. Please refer to our blog post on geared property for further details.
We secured these four houses, from a scheme of five, directly from the developer. The total rent forecast is £57,600 per annum. The number of vacant units may vary month to month. For prudence we have factored into our forecasts an annual void rate of 5.7% and have not included any growth in rental values.
At this level of rent, the forecast Dividend Yield is 2.73% (fully accounting for and after mortgage interest payments, purchase costs, furnishings, forecast maintenance, annual voids, corporate taxation and all fees). From April 2016 UK taxpayers are entitled to a £5,000 annual dividend allowance. See our FAQs here for more information.
We haven't included any growth in rental values in our forecasts, which is simply a precaution. However, it is worth noting that Savills forecast rental growth of +20.5% through to 2020 for the UK.
