Like the idea of restoring historic, old buildings to their former glory and making them usable again, so people can call them home?

And helping communities thrive by providing a greater choice of housing?

Are you comfortable investing in property, like the returns it makes, but may not want the day-to-day hassle of full-on involvement?

Do you like decent - but not outrageous - returns, which are predictable?
(Outrageous makes you feel a bit uncomfortable)

Well then, you might be interested in a business model that makes use of tax advantages.

Firstly, home-buyer tax breaks incentivise buyers and generate strong demand for buying the renovated homes.

And your investment attracts a different tax treatment to a standard buy-to-let. 

This type of investment is not for everyone, you need to be comfortable it works for you.

        map of germanyGermany is the World’s 3rd largest economy and the biggest and most populous in Europe, with 82m citizens. The country offers lots of property investment opportunities, from city-centre conversions to suburban, new build, buy-to-let and tax efficient investment vehicles.

        Germany was divided into the democratic West and the Communist East (German Democratic Republic) after the second World War. The Berlin Wall became not only the physical divide between the two sides of the country, but remains the symbol of its former division until 1989, to this day. After the credit crunch of 2007 mainstream property prices have risen by 7.4% in Germany, but fell at a similar rate over the same time period across the wider Eurozone. 

        Berlin - capital city

        Berlin City centre propertyHome to the German Parliament, housed in the 'Reichstag' building. Berlin is a relaxed city, at ease with itself. It has clearly come a long way, uniting the East with the Western parts of the city. Some of the most interesting property developments can be seen in newly renovated, former East Berlin areas. Developments like Straulauer Allee, combining trendy living and forward-thinking, modern workspace on the banks of the river Spree.

        In the centre of Berlin developments and refurbishments are taking place in and around the major tourist attractions and buildings. On streets like Wilhelmstrasse, near to the Brandenburg Gate. These offer a pied-a-terre for those who want to be at the heart of the city and within walking distance of the city centre, or a stone’s throw from the underground U-Bahn station.

        Berlin is home to some impressive modern shopping centres, just take Potsdamer Place for example with its impressive Arkaden with more than 130 shops spread over three floors, attracting the cosmopolitan crowd seeking retail therapy.

        Berlin combines art, culture, nightlife, museums theatres and a great nightlife. Attracting many nationalities to its heart, including about 14,000 British citizens. Lower costs of housing are attractive compared with London and comparisons are drawn between it and the East End of London pre-gentrification.

        While London tenants reportedly spend 72% of their earnings on rent, Berliners pay out just over 20%. In an effort to keep rents affordable, Berlin is the first city to embed rent caps in law, preventing landlords charging new tenants more than 10% above the local average, for inner city homes. However, newly built properties and those that have undergone wholesale renovations are exempt from the restriction, in order not to discourage investment in building projects. Yet the housing market remains competitive. Incrementally there are 40,000 more inhabitants per year. Because of this situation the housing market is very strong, making flat-hunting highly-competitive and a good place to be a buy-to-let landlord.

        Munich city

        The city has a population of 1.4 million but attracts 5.7 million tourists each year. Munich remains popular with many wealthy Germans and an increasing number of international buyers. Latest estimates suggest around 5% of home buyers in Munich purchasing properties over €2 million are from abroad with Russian and Middle Eastern buyers most prominent.

        Munich’s excellent hospital and medical facilities, on a par with London’s Harley Street, are helping to attract interest from Kuwaiti, Saudi Arabian and Qatari buyers amongst others.

        At €4,200 per square meter, mainstream prices in Munich are among the most expensive in Germany compared to €3,100 per square meter in Frankfurt and €2,200 per square meter in Berlin. However, property prices still compare favourably with other European cities.

        United Kingdom, the World’s 5th largest economy and the second biggest in Europe, offers lots of property investment opportunities, from new build buy-to-let, to city investments and commercial hotel or student investments.

        London - capital city

        City of London, Westminster Houses of ParliamentFamous for its financial centre, upmarket shopping, historic architecture, Royal Palaces, and Royal Parks, London attracts millions of visitors and property investors alike. 
        With a city population of 7m inhabitants, or over 8.5m in greater London, it has long attracted property investors, domestic and overseas buyers who see it as a safe bet. Central London, Zone 1 on the tube map, can be pricey and this means yields are low, around the 2-3% level for buy-to-let landlords. However there are still solid opportunities in London, particularly in Zone 3 and beyond, especially those locations clustered around infrastructure improvements like the night tube, or Elizabeth Line (formerly Crossrail) to the East and West of the capital.

        Birmingham city

        A city of 1 million, 2.44 million in the greater city area, it is the second biggest city in the UK. Birmingham attracts 38m visitors annually, with numbers at a record high. Local property prices and rents are buoyant. Whilst economic activity is robust, employment rates are a bit lower than the national average. There has been an increase in investment activity in commercial office space and residential build. Birmingham is the UK's second largest student city, with five universities, one of which is a Red Brick, Russell Group University (Aston, Birmingham, Birmingham City, Newman and University College Birmingham), which makes it home to over 65,000 higher education students, attracted from around the world, many of whom stay and work in the city.

        Sheffield City

        With a population of over half a million and 1.6 million in the greater area, this makes Sheffield the third biggest metropolitan area in England. With two Universities, almost 1 in 10 people in Sheffield are students, so the city is geared towards student life, from the nightclubs and bars to the shops. The University of Sheffield, is a member of the Russell Group of leading research universities which includes Oxford, Cambridge, University College London and Manchester. They recently invested £240m in facilities for their students. That means world-class equipment, resources and study space. Many of their research partners are world leaders in industry, household names such as Boeing and Rolls-Royce sponsor facilities at Sheffield.

        Manchester city 

        Manchester city buy-to-let and student investmentsThe city has a population of about half a million, swelling to 2.6 million in the greater Manchester area. A European business and cultural hub Manchester’s economy has almost doubled in size in the last 20 years. 

        The first tram line opened in 1992 and a successful bid made for the Commonwealth Games, which took place in 2002. Traditionally its roots have been in manufacturing industries but it has re-emerged as an economic magnet, with developments such as the BBC’s MediaCity in Salford. The former industrial wasteland between Manchester and Salford Quays is filling up with new apartment blocks, attracting a younger generation of professionals moving in. There is high demand - private renting (PRS) grew by 436% from 2001-2011. This fact, coupled with undersupply - 55,000 units need to be delivered by 2027 to meet demand - create a buy to let hotspot in the UK with average yields of 6% and is recognised by HSBC as one of the UK’s top ten buy-to-let hotspots. Whilst the average apartment in Manchester costs up to two thirds less than in central London, property prices are forecast to rise 20% over the next 3 years. Home to a Red Brick University, it attracts international students and 7 in 10 stay after graduation, usually in Greater Manchester.

        Leeds City

        A city populated by just over 750,000 people, Leeds is the UK’s fastest growing city and has a £56 billion economy. Over the next ten years, the economy is forecast to grow by 25% with financial and business services a key driver of this growth. Leeds has the largest manufacturing sector in the UK worth £7billion. It is the second largest financial district in the UK outside of London. With HS2 coming in 2018 it is expected to boost the local economy and buoy up house price growth. Rents are healthy and buy-to-let occupancy levels are high, at over 90%. Home to three Universities, one of which is a Red Brick (founded in the C19) Russell Group, means a strong flow of students into the city.

        Liverpool City

        Liver Building, Liverpool CityThis historic city has done a great job of restoring its old buildings and districts which are home to some of the city’s most fashionable restaurants and stylish apartments. The old-world charm of UNESCO recognised areas, the city’s retail and waterfront areas, continue to make Liverpool a desirable location. Birthplace of The Beatles and home to the legendary Cavern Club, a sporting and musical capital, Liverpool is emerging as a worldwide trading centre, hosting a major International Festival of Business 2016.

        The city created the world’s first enclosed dock on the Mersey and the world’s first passenger railway and remains at the centre of an international travel and transport network. Liverpool is a burgeoning centre for digital business, an internationally recognised cultural and visitor centre and home to three great universities (one of which is a Russell Group University) attracting students from every continent. Liverpool’s expanding population continues to fuel one of the country’s most vibrant residential property markets. Liverpool attracts 30m visitors every year bringing wealth to the city and its population of just under 1 million.

        Chester City

        Chester Roman-Walled Student CityAt the heart of the city remains the inner, Roman-walled heart, one of the best preserved walled cities in Britain. With its charming cobbled streets, old Victorian and Jacobean-façade buildings. The University of Chester is ranked 67 in The Times and 'The Sunday Times Good University Guide' Rankings for 2015 and is part of The Cathedrals Group. Within Chester there are approximately 10,000 full time higher education students. Of these c.1,500 are full time post graduates. There are c.700 European Union and Overseas postgraduate students at the University. This makes the city a great place to invest in student accommodation.

        This is for those of you who want to get the returns property can offer, but without the hassle of hands-on management. This may be for you, if you are busily employed elsewhere and want to build up a portfolio, which doesn't interfere with your day job.

        Purpose Built Student Accommodation Investment

        2016 03 11 083 480x640

It also qualifies for the recently announced, more favourable, Capital Gains Tax (CGT) treatment. If you are interested in investing in property which delivers up to 8% yields, but want to avoid the 3% stamp Duty surcharge that Residential Buy-to-Let attracts, as well as qualifying for the reduced CGT rates, with up to 8% CGT savings, then download the student brochure here now

        This is a fully-managed, City-centre investment which delivers 8% net rental yields, assured for 5 years. Starting price is £72,500. Student property has outperformed many asset classes for returns and has a proven ability to weather a recession. 

        Passive hotel investment

        Investing in a hotel room, or fraction thereof, enables you to get healthy yields which you can bank without too much effort. The hotel management team manage the day-to-day bookings and upkeep, while you get the returns on your money.

        High-yield Hotel Investment UK

        Active property investment in the UK

        Buy to let gearing for property returns

        Few investments allow you to use a mortgage to buy an asset, thereby giving you a larger pot of money to buy a larger asset. This offers the opportunity for benefiting from capital uplift on the whole value of the property, rather than just your deposit, whilst repaying the loan with rental income. Given the changes over treatment of mortgage interest relief in the UK and the stamp duty surcharge, which suppress ongoing profitability for leveraged buyers, it makes sense to think of property investing more as a medium to longer term investment.

        Cities like Manchester, Nottingham and Liverpool have average house prices up to 75% less than London but also offer yields of 6-9%. Download information on a managed city buy-to-let here.

        German City Buy-to-let

        Germany, as the largest economy in Europe, clearly has a lot to offer. It has a stable, strong property market, characterised by long term tenancies in the rental market, where rental demand outweighs owner-occupier numbers.

        Investing in property in its major cities, offers a great way to invest in the medium to long term and get stable rental returns. Take a look at what's on offer in cities like Berlin

        Property-backed Bond

        Are you anxious about the repercussions of the Brexit decision on the property market in the UK?

        Do you still want to make decent returns, or provide in some way financially, for your children?

        And still want exposure to a European, large-scale, stable, economy which is well-regulated from both a legal and banking perspective?

        Then consider this....

        A property-backed Loan Note or ‘Bond’ is an unregulated investment, but introduced to clients in a regulated way.

        For those interested in this type of investment, you in effect lend money to a developer, which is used to secure the purchase of developments quickly, given bank finance can take several months to secure on a project-by-project basis. These projects offer you (the lender) a registered First Legal Charge on the underlying property asset. This product is operated on a seggregated account, or 'escrow'-type account basis, providing added reassurance.

        What’s the attraction of this type of model?

        Clearly the returns - which can be double digits for the investor - offer an attractive alternative in a low interest environment.

        What's more, knowing the fundamentals of the business model is a big help too.

        Tax incentive plays a strong role. As a way to address the country’s housing shortage while also making sure buildings of cultural and historical significance were restored, Germany’s post-WWII government introduced a unique tax incentive for high rate tax payers who refurbish a Listed Building. Listed Buildings represent about 1% of the real estate market in Germany and are not subject to quite the same rules and regulations as in other countries like the UK.

        Higher rate German tax payers are able to claim back up to 100% of the cost of refurbishment as a tax break. This means that a German property buyer can benefit from tax relief on the properties refurbished and brought to market by the developer, thus generating strong buyer demand locally in Germany, for the developer's refurbished properties.

        The other aspect to this is that you are not exposed to currency fluctuations. If you invest in GBP you get returns in GBP. If you invest in Euros you get returns in Euros.

        This type of investment is not for everyone, but if you are interested put your e-mail in the box below and we will get in touch so that we can follow up with you. Investors need to qualify in order to proceed and we can talk this through at the same time.
