PROPERTY INVESTMENT IN LEEDS-UK

Haitham Sadek 0 Comments

I got many requests from Wealth Heights’ members to share property investment opportunities in the UK. Below is one of the good investment opportunities that passed my “6 Golden rules of properties investment” . I actually purchased a unit in the same building few months ago and currently enjoying a great over 7% net yield. If you are interested in similar opportunities, please send me an email to info@wealthheights.com. Unfortunately, there are only two apartments available.

 Assetz are delighted to have secured the second development in Leeds this year. Assetz have an exclusive agreement with the developer on an office conversion of 32 apartments in a regeneration area on the fringes of Leeds City Centre. The units are ready and tenanted . The tenants are typically those professionals looking at getting more value for money whilst only having a 5 minute drive commute to the City Centre.

There will be demand from young professionals and doctors who work at the nearby St. James’s University Hospital which is just over a mile away and is one of the most famous hospitals in the U.K. This is perfect for those renters and future buyers who would rather have a 10 minute commute into Leeds City Centre and get far more for their money.
