    Property Investment Returns

    City FX is able to generate healthy returns on its property investments over a relatively short period of time. This is achieved by maximising on the areas that can generate profit for property investments.

    Property investors often only focus on one factor, which managed well can generate a good return. But this also limits the returns that can be made and adds slightly more risk to the overall investment.

    City FX Property Investments focus on three areas of investment return. Firstly, purchasing undervalued properties at auction or properties where the owner requires a quick private sale. Secondly, on properties that may require renovation or can benefit from some low cost improvements that will greatly increase their value. Then finally, on the use of the property, either as short term serviced accommodation or as a rent to buy partnership with a tenant.

    Undervalued Properties

    As properties prices have recovered well in the last few years, finding greatly undervalued properties is hard to do. However, knowing the right places to look, having the correct contacts and also having the ability to purchasing properties immediately gives our City FX Property Investments a slight edge.

    Property Improvements

    Many properties on the market can benefit from simple renovations, extensions and improvements that will greatly increase the desirability of the property.

    Our property team have years of experience in modifying London properties to maximise on their space and increase their overall value. With the emphasis on a quick turnaround to create an immediate value increase, we can ensure our investment properties are generating a return as soon as we set to work on them. Making sure improvements are taken care of quickly, or with minimal impact on the usability of the property, we also ensure that properties are available to generate letting returns as soon as possible.

    Lettings Return

    Renting properties has always been a good way of generating a return from properties. City FX Investment has kept with this basic principle but focuses on two specific types of letting, that are both high in demand and generate the best return from the properties.

    Short lettings in city centres has becoming more and more popular, as many workers are now in and out of cities for jobs, meetings and conferences. Also there are many visitors arriving to see family or tour the city. The option of using a residential property, with its home amenities, has become far more appealing to people when they are working away from home and can be more convenient for tourist visitors.

    In addition to the increased demand, the regular cleaning and management of serviced properties, the upfront payment and non contracted guests, means that serviced properties are far more flexible than other longer term tenanted properties.

    Rent to Buy letting is similar to the classic property renting scenario, but is angled more to protect investors by bringing in more reliable tenant 'partners', that are as committed to the property as the investors. Rent to Buy tenants take more responsibility for the property and have far more to lose if they fall behind with payments. Also rent to buy tenants can find a great deal of support from government and charitable organisations that will assist people to hold on to their home and investment if they run in to difficulty. All of which provide a more stable investment return.

    Important Information

    1. Higher yearly investor returns could be achieved, depending on rental demands and property value increase. The returns stated are based on conservative estimates. Lower returns could also occur in the event of house price dips or property income difficulties.

    2. In the third year annual returns drop as the first two years return combines renovation, house price increase and rental returns. By the third year renovations are normally complete, so only property price increase and rental return now apply. However the investment becomes more secure as it now ready for sale and has a steady income from either rent to buy tenants or serviced apartment use.
