Strong rental demand from executives and mature students, yielding around 4% . Easy to own a unit with 20% staged payment across 12 months with 80% balance payable at completion in Q1 2024.
London has always been a popular choice for international students and talents. Rents remain vibrant in the city due to strong demand. With the new graduates' visa, students can stay on for a further 2 years after graduation to look for employment, whilst London looks to retain talent, it has also created a shortage of homes to live in as they remain in the city.
Our offices across London have reported extremely high tenancy renewal rates at over 80%, therefore making London properties one of the most resilient investment you can invest in.
