Investing in Property Made Easy

Since the financial crisis of 2008, banks have been increasingly reluctant to lend to SME’s and property developers, making it harder to keep up with the UK’s increasing demand for new houses.

Banks no longer brings the financial rewards of yesteryear – making property investment one of the most attractive and rewarding ways of seeing solid returns on investment funds.

High net worth investors have stepped in to help meet the Government’s target of building 300,000 homes per year by investing in property development projects throughout England.

This approach keeps funds readily available, offering greater flexibility in the initial purchasing of property and throughout the development phase. This ultimately speeds up the process of building new homes for local communities.

Helping to Solve the Housing Shortage Dilemma the Right Way

Property development isn’t all about pounds and percentages. In fact, the numbers we care for most are those of the people we’ve helped find a place to call home.

But unfortunately for the ever-growing population of England and the UK, it’s getting harder and harder for families and young professionals to find affordable, high-quality housing.

According to the BBC, the UK is suffering from an estimated shortage of 1.2 million homes during a time when banks are reluctant to lend funds to property developers.

So, to help achieve the Government’s target of building 300,000 new homes a year, private investors are stepping in to help bridge the funding gap.

Not only are investors in a position to receive good returns, the investments are crucial to solving the UK’s housing crisis.

Our method allows us to produce homes quicker and more cost effectively than new builds, without planning risk and with lower building risk.

In return, we can offer larger apartments for more affordable rents, resulting in lower tenant turnover and great gains on investment funds.

Furthermore, by recycling buildings rather than demolish and reconstructing, we vastly reduce the environmental impact of producing each new home.

This coupled with high levels of insulation and other energy saving systems we mean we do everything possible to ensure our carbon footprint remains low.

Homes by Holmes isn’t just focused on big finances – we’re committed to creating new homes which improve lives of residents and securing a better future for everyone.
