The next three to five years from 2020 – 2024 will be more of a buy and hold strategy because the property prices will at best stagnate and worst case may drop around 10-15% in the South east. We buy sites that we can ‘add value’, either through planning permission or by adding extra units / rooms to an existing scheme.
We will focus on the following strategies following Covid19 business review.
- New build: To ‘add value’ by buying land without planning or with potential to uplift, secure planning permission and build schemes up to 30-units. We build mixed-use scheme and residential schemes. The exit strategy is to part sell and part rent.
- Commercial to residential conversions: To convert vacant commercial buildings to residential or mixed-use using new and existing permitted development rights. The exit strategy is to part sell and part rent.
All our projects so far have mainly been in home counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, and Hertfordshire. We will also explore Surrey and greater London boroughs of Hillingdon, Harrow, Hounslow, Ealing, and Richmond. We focus on appraising deals in the South East with a minimum of 25% Return on Cost (ROC).
We work passive investors on a loan basis and active investors who can bring in relevant experience. We want to build long-term relationships with investors who have the right mindset and attitude towards property development.
