Sheffield is the 4th largest city in the UK. With its 560.000 people, it is considered a mid-size town. More importantly, Sheffield has seen a thorough metamorphosis in the last 15 years. And that change is still in full swing. In the middle between an industrial city (The famous Full Monty move of 1997) and a modern service economy, Sheffield is transforming itself at an increasing speed. Read more on our Sheffield analysis.

We are happy to introduce Sheffield Lighthouse, our second project in the city.

Modern and affordable living in the downtown area

The Sheffield Lighthouse project is a new building with 129 Studio’s, 1 and 2 bedroom flats. Located 400m away from the main train station and 300 meters from Sheffield Hallam University, the project is within walking distance of anything important in the center of Sheffield.

The project aims for the growing group of young graduates that “stick around” a few years after leaving the university. A modern and affordable city center flat is exactly what they are looking for.

And that is also exactly the type of projects we like at a low entry level (from 83.000£), a new building without unpleasant surprises, a developer with experience (43 succesfull projects), a central city centre location (makes an easy exit) and a management contract with a professional investor. An ideal investment for non UK-investors.

8% net + a serious capital gains

The developpers guarantees a net rental income of 8% for the first three years. Afterwards it is market level minus costs. And on top of this, there is of course a capital gains. What this might be in 5 years time, is of course difficult to guess. We allways calculate 3% as a “safe expectation”. But professional Real Estate companies predict 4-5% for the next 5 years. And last years price increase was no less then 10%.

The project has 3 different financing models, depending how much you are willing to invest at the beginning. If you choose to invest the largest amount upfront, you will receive a 17% discount and 5% interest on top.

If you prefer residential property with an annual yield of 8% AND a significant uplift potential, you have a very good reason to look at Sheffield.
