You can view all of our available properties here.
Is property investment still a good idea in 2023?
Property investment is absolutely still a good idea in 2023. The last two years have seen the market boom to unprecedented levels, breaking numerous house price and rent records throughout. Whilst many have forecast a slight dip in house prices this year, industry experts are viewing this as more of a correction rather than a crisis, with house price growth once again set to resume in the years after. Rents are also continuing to rise at a rapid rate. These factors paired with the unwavering demand for rental property make investing in property an excellent idea in 2023.
How much money do I need to get started with property investment?
There is no definitive answer to this question as there are a number of factors that you will need to consider. First and foremost is the property you choose to purchase. Our prices range from student properties for just £85,000 to luxury apartments prices at over £400,000. You also must decide if you are purchasing with cash or a mortgage. There are some fixed costs that you can definitely expect when you invest – these include Stamp Duty and solicitor’s fees. The best way to get a definitive answer to this question is to get in touch with our team today and talk through your requirements.
Is it possible to lose money when investing in property?
Like any other investment venture, investing in property does come with its own set of risks and it is possible to lose money when you invest. The biggest risk with buy-to-let is external factors such as a financial crash or a slowdown in the economy, which could affect the value of your property. Another issue for landlords is when your property is experiencing a void period where it’s empty and not receiving rental income, however, the impact of this can be reduced with proper financial planning and budgeting when you invest.
What types of property do Knight Knox offer for investment?
Knight Knox offer a vast selection of property investment opportunities across the UK. Our portfolio ranges from purpose-built student accommodation to new-build houses and modern luxury apartments in the UK’s most desirable locations. We pride ourselves on our unrivalled selection of available properties. So, no matter what kind of investment you’re looking for we’ll have something for you.
Will Knight Knox allow me to visit a property before making an investment?
We are more than happy to accompany clients to view a property before making a decision to invest. It is important to note, however, that as many of our properties are sold off-plan (prior to practical completion), a lot of the time the only thing to view will be the construction site as opposed to a specific apartment or room within the development. For more information on viewing a property, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team.
Does Knight Knox offer any guarantees or protections for investors?
Guarantees and protections when investing in property can come in the form of things like rental guarantees for a set number of years or build warranties to name a few, and they can vary from project to project. One thing we consistently guarantee with every project is excellent service from the moment you make your first enquiry. All Knight Knox employees are knowledgeable about the buy-to-let market and passionate about what they do, so you can be assured that you’ll be in the best possible hands for the entirety of your investment journey with us.
Can Knight Knox help advise me on which property would be best for my budget?
Knight Knox can indeed help advise on what property is best suited to your available budget. With nearly 20 years of experience under our belts, we are perfectly positioned to give our clients property investment advice that is perfectly tailored to them, and make the property investment process as simple as possible. Upon getting in touch with us, one of our specialist property consultants will be on hand to talk through all of your requirements for a property and find an investment that is perfect for you.
How much can I expect my investment property to return on a yearly basis?
The amount you will receive on a yearly basis is defined as a NET return, or in other words, the value of your return with all associated costs deducted. This value is dependent on factors such as your gross rental income, property value, and the associated running costs, so it is impossible to give a definitive answer until you have chosen a property. A number of our available opportunities offer an ‘assured NET yield’ for a set number of years, which means that the agreed rental income figure will be guaranteed on the property for the specified period.
How can I get in touch with Knight Knox to learn more about your services?
There are a number of ways to get in touch with the Knight Knox team! You can email [email protected], give us a call at 0161 772 1370 or fill in any of the forms you see across our website and a member of our team will be on hand to assist you with any questions or queries you may have.
