Property Investment: A Beginners’ Guide

Over the past 15 years, we have developed multiple relationships with local and national development companies to procure successful sales and lettings on schemes in and around the London area.

London represents one of the best and most consistent investments and development opportunities in the world. Billions of pounds are spent every year attracting international and local investors alike. With more new build properties and homes in London being built than ever before, the choice is seemingly endless.

The Wandsworth and Lambeth boroughs have seen a large number of new build properties sold over the past decade with many more schemes in the planning stage, the welcomed Battersea Power Station redevelopment along with the Nine Elms American Embassy site are the two major schemes currently underway.

Where to Invest

London is a vast sprawling metropolis and the property portals only provide a snapshot of what’s on offer. James Pendleton’s Land, New Homes and Investments in London provide a comprehensive guide to our top locations, delving deeper into where to invest and looking beyond what’s on offer.

How to Invest

Should you require a mortgage James Pendleton’s team of London investment specialists recommend that you speak to SPF Private Clients. As independent financial advisers, SPF Private Clients have a wealth of current and historical mortgage market experience and knowledge and offer professional solutions to a wide range of mortgage enquiries.

When to buy

New build properties are often marketed well in advance of being built; sometimes 2-3 years before they are completed. Buying off plan allows you to buy now and pay later, whilst earning money from any increase in value over the period of the build. Alternatively, a property with shorter lead time bought as a buy to let will provide a quicker return on investment from the rental yield.

What to buy

Investment properties come in all shapes and sizes and there are many factors to consider before making a purchase. No matter what the nature of your desired investment is our team of London investment experts will guide you towards the optimum property based on when, how and why you’re buying.
