A Picture Paints A Thousand Words

Symbol Istanbul is an iconic, award winning development, in one of the world’s fastest growing cities, Istanbul. With a 14% rental guarantee over two years, hassle free management and prices starting from £28,500, this is one that should not be missed.

Here are a few more reasons why Symbol Istanbul is doing so well.

 

Location – The Metrobus Effect

Istanbul Metro Bus

Symbol Istanbul is located in the fast growing Esenyurt region. Just a few years back, it would have taken someone living in Esenyurt around 2 hours to get to the centre of Istanbul, where the majority of people work – you can understand why it wasn’t as desirable for the masses.

With the new Metrobus system, this journey is now less than 30 minutes. One of the main reasons why people are moving to this region in record numbers. New build homes with a first class transportation system, is an attractive proposition for anyone.

 

Iconic – Award Winning Design

Wherever you are in the world today, there is likely to be an iconic building not too far away. Londoners will say things like “turn right at the Gherkin,” New Yorkers may say, “two blocks from the Empire State Building” and the people of Istanbul will soon be saying “turn left at Symbol.”

And guess what? Iconic buildings typically have high rental demand which usually commands a premium above standard rental prices. What does this mean for you, the investor – simply put; more cash in your pocket.

 

Growth – Istanbul Is A Property Hotspot

Investing in Symbol Istanbul…you are investing in the standout opportunity in the standout property hotspot.

UK Student Property Investment Guide

Why invest in student properties?

The answer is simple – the returns are guaranteed.

There is huge demand for purpose-built student accommodation in the UK because there is a national shortage. The number of local and international students is also increasing rapidly. Most people need a degree to have a chance of getting a job in the 21st century.

Student property in the UK is all about high rental yields. You can count on 100% occupancy rates and 1-year or longer tenancies – this means no void periods and stable profit from day one. Investors can invest remotely and enjoy the returns brought by a fast growing student population in the best University towns and cities.

Is Owning A Rental Property Worth It?

One of the best decisions I ever made was to invest in a rental property.

When I started out, I bought a property that was nothing to write home about and I ended up sleeping on the floor. I worked very hard to make the house look presentable enough for tenants to want to move in.

A lot of people will make you question the wisdom of property investment. There are times when might question it yourself in the early years.

I learned an important lesson from that first rental property. Everything comes down to cash flow.

All the wealth you get from owning property comes from cash flow.  Without cash flow, property is an asset that doesn’t pay you back anything until you sell it.

So owning a good rental property is worth it if you want to put some real cash back in your pocket.

The return you get from property investment comes from the rent your tenants pay you every month, less the amount it costs to run the property.

So if a property has a rental return of 5% you need to figure out how much of that you get to keep for yourself for the investment to be worth it. 

Sometimes that 5% may not all the profit you make from the property – unless it is calculated as a net return.  

The net rental return is what you get when all the things like management charges and taxes are taken out. You will need as much of that monthly return as you can keep hold of to make your investment worthwhile.

The gain you get from appreciation comes much later. This is why property investment should be a long term strategy. Historically property prices have always gone up.

So property is worth the effort if your plan includes getting a good monthly rental return.

The real magic begins when you invest in more than one property:

Let’s say John invests in a 5 unit apartment complex.

The apartments cost £125,000 per unit and he gets a conservative 3% appreciation growth per year for 5 years. 

This gives him a return of £79,000 on paper.

Rent those same 5 apartments out and the rental income is £125,000 over 5 years.

If John stopped at just one property he would miss out on all this extra income.

Real estate investing can be a headache if you don’t plan long term and you can’t find someone who is willing to help do at least some of work for you.

It is not only about investment, you will need to spend some time taking care of the investment property.

You can hire people to do the work for you, but like any investment, the more people you hire the less money you will make.

So always allow for your expenses. It will have an impact on the amount of money you can make as a property investor and save you some headaches in the future.

Is owning a rental property worth it for you?

Kind Regards

World Cup Buy To Let Property Infographic Released By Colordarcy

A colourful infographic just released by global investment consultants Colordarcy.com takes a glance at  this year’s World Cup qualifiers and looks at how they match up when it comes to their property markets.

The infographic follows the exact format of this year’s World Cup and features a group and finals stages. Each property market is scored according to average rental returns and capital growth in the past 12 months.

Loxley McKenzie, Managing Director of Colordarcy commented, “While it is meant as a bit of fun ahead of the World Cup, the infographic does have a more serious side.

What we found when looking at the property markets of countries such as Brazil and the USA was that there was a major difference between the high growth potential of those markets compared to the likes of Spain, Italy and Greece.

While you might expect the latter two countries to do well in a World Cup, their respective economies are not performing at anything like the level of Brazil and the USA our two finalists this year.

The data used in the infographic has been gathered from data released by Knight Frank and Global Property guide in addition to Colordarcy’s own in-house research.

According to Colordarcy, this Property World Cup arrived too late for countries like England, which has started to show great promise in 2014 as a result of the government stepping in with its Help To Buy initiative and and improving economic picture. 

The same could not be said for Spain and Greece – 2 countries that have seen prices tumble in double digits again in the past 12 months. 

The eventual winners of the Property World Cup were perhaps not surprisingly Brazil closely followed by the USA with Germany third and Australia fourth.

Brazil Property Report Reveals Best Places To Invest In 2014 And Beyond

A new Brazil property report written by investment consultants Colordarcy.com reveals the best places to invest in Brazil ahead of the World Cup and beyond.

The report includes:

  • Detailed analysis of Brazil’s economic outlook.
  • The kinds of returns investors can expect from their investment in particular cities.
  • Predictions for 2014 and beyond.   

Investors can be confident that Brazil is home to the world’s most idyllic beaches and tropical rainforests, and of course one of the world’s best football teams. It is also the world’s most exciting property market, according to the report written by experts at Colordarcy.com

The report highlights how few countries in the world will be able to attract more visitors, with World Cup 2014 looming on the horizon as well as the Olympics 2016.

Loxley McKenzie Managing Director of Colordarcy commented, “Hosting two of the world’s major sporting events within the space of two years has increased the need to improve infrastructure and the evidence is there for all to see in Brazil’s major cities.

With an economy that has grown rapidly, Brazil looks set to continue offering investors high emerging market returns at low risk.”

McKenzie added, “Our latest report is designed to give investors, who may not be too familiar with Brazil, advice on where and how to invest.

Brazil is a huge country and the opportunities to make money from investments in sectors like social housing (Minha Casa Minha Vida) are certainly there for the taking.”

Looking at the property market as a whole, the report reveals evidence of some of the dramatic increases in property prices seen since 2009 and what can be expected in the next five years.

In 2013 national growth averaged12% and investors can anticipate more double digit returns in 2014 according to the report.

Rents will continue to climb in good areas of the major cities. In the run up to the Olympics and the World Cup acceleration in prices and rents will see interest from foreign investors increase once again.

The information in the report is gathered from several independent sources, to give a clear overview of the main property hotspots and the kind of returns investors can expect.

Colordarcy Serves Up A Tasty French Property Investment From £9,500

Colordarcy have just served up a tasty Michelin starred treat for investors who like the sound of a guaranteed 10% return per annum. The hotel room investments in France start at just £9,500 for the fractional ownership option.

Château de la Cazine, part of the luxury Halcyon Retreat Golf and Spa Resort in Limousin, France has just been awarded a Michelin star within just 18 months of opening. The hotel is fast gaining a reputation for its fine dining and achieving a Michelin star will raise its profile further with visitors to the French Lake District.

Loxley McKenzie, Managing Director of Colordarcy commented, “Halcyon Retreat has proved to be one of our most popular investments because it provides a guaranteed income and exit strategy.

This is the case whether you invest in fractional ownership of a hotel room or own the room outright.

Either way an investor gets usage of the room and an income generated from the high occupancy levels at this established hotel. We only have a small selection of rooms with the best views remaining such has been the demand from investors.”

Aside from fine dining, Château de la Cazine certainly stacks up from an investment point of view. According to Colordarcy, you can buy a room at the hotel and achieve 10% fixed returns a year for 15 years.

The developer will then offer to buy back the room at 150% of the price originally paid, which removes the risk and gives a definite exit point to the investment.

The hotel has recently been awarded a certificate of excellence from travel review website, Trip Advisor, due to its high ratings on all aspects of the hotel including its cuisine.

Occupancy levels are high all year round due to the hotel’s excellent reputation and its magnificent setting within 220 acres of spectacular Limousin countryside.

McKenzie added, “Unlike timeshares where you buy time and you don’t get to own any of the asset, Halcyon Retreat is a fractional ownership opportunity where you get to own a part of, or even the whole room, if you choose the full ownership option.

This investment is one investors and lifestyle buyers shouldn’t miss.”

Viewing Trip

Limousin is a truly spectacular region of France and Colordarcy are offering viewing trips to the Halcyon Retreat Resort so that potential investors can appreciate the hotel and beautifully unspoilt countryside first hand.Viewing trips available from £99 per person.
