Selling Apartments

Recommended Posts

This is how to sell new apartment development surrounded by busy roads and car parks


Located between the Titanic Quarter and the city centre, these high end, one and two bedroom apartments are perfect for professionals and students.

Close to the River Lagan, between the city centre, the Titanic Quarter and the Belfast Waterfront with its trendy restaurants and bars, The Sandford offers all that could be needed within just a few short steps. On top of this, upper floors at The Sandford enjoy views across the river to the Belfast city skyline.

We were just over visiting in Belfast meeting with the developer and getting the full tour. Fabulous. I am so impressed with Liverpool. I think I like it better than Edinburgh, in fact.

These apartments are perfect for those who work in the city, at the Titanic Quarter or for students at any of the universities in the centre eg University of Ulster or Belfast Met as both are walking distance from the site. I know this as I was there on Friday just gone meeting the developer.

Investment Highlights
• 56 one and two bedroom luxury apartments and duplexes
• Instant equity available

• Up to 9% expected yield – management options available
• 6% below RICS valuation – Prices from £108,200 to £122,200
• Excellent location within walking distance of the city centre & Titanic Quarter
• Prices still almost 50% below their 2007 high

The Belfast Telegraph reported in 2011 that Belfast was ranked as the UK’s second most attractive city for direct foreign investment, second only to London.

Belfast’s reviving housing market has been creating excellent opportunities for investors, as has the technology and financial services sectors. Resulting in Belfast being on the map and having a larger presence in the world.

Belfast was also rated the 2nd best place to live for quality of life in the Quality of Life survey compiled by , published in Sept 2014

There has been growth in Northern Ireland's private rented sector over recent years, such that 14.6% of all households live in private rented accommodation. This growth therefore makes opportunities such as The Sandford really popular with investors looking to achieve strong rental yields.

Experts have said that the positive growth being experienced in Northern Ireland is set to continue!

RICS’ Samuel Dickey projects that house prices will rise by 4% over the course of the rest of this year. Similar annual rates of growth are also expected each year over the medium term.

One bed apartments are available from £108,200 and two bedroom, penthouse apartments are available from £122,200 and are affordable and exceptional properties when compared to other properties in the area.

The developer has spoken to a local management company and they are willing to fully manage the apartments-making this an armchair investment for you. The predict a gross yield of 8% per annum.

Also the prospect for capital uplift is high. Prices have not yet returned to the former highs of 2007, pre financial crisis/slump. Growth is expected at 4-5% per year until they return to the 2007 level, which would likely give you a 100% return on your investment- and who wouldn’t want that?

Don't think they left anything out (like pay freezes, public sector cuts, welfare reform, car fumes, traffic jams)

will we ever learn!!
