Thoughts about co-working spaces?

Recommended Posts

Hi

Quite often on my Facebook feed, I have advertisements from the Move Channel, offering the chance to invest in co-working spaces from as little as £20k, and offering yields of 8% upwards. Whilst sounding very promising, there’s a ring of ‘too good to be true’ about it.

At the moment I am looking to invest about £70k in property of some kind, and at the moment my first choice would be an apartment in Berlin. My intention is for long-term (10 years) capital gain; any net rental income would be seen as a bonus.

Does anyone have any opinions or experiences regarding investing in individual co-working space projects as advertised by the Move Channel? How favourably would the scope for relative capital gain compare with my proposed investment in Berlin, and how do the two options compare with regard to risk?

If I did wish to invest in co-working spaces, would I be better off simply buying shares in companies which offered them instead, rather than making a direct large investment into individual products?

Finally – sorry, I know I’m asking a lot, but does anyone have any suggestions as to whether I should be investing my £70k in other investments which offer more scope for capital growth – be they individual funds/shares, particular market sectors, etc.?

Very many thanks in anticipation of your assistance.

Why so desperate to invest in property? This forum seems a weird place to ask about purchasing property in the hope of capital gain; it's the absolute anithesis of why this site exists!
