  • 3. Do I pay Lifestyle a fee for finding me a property?

    Lifestyle Property does not charge any finder’s fees or annual membership fees to clients. More importantly we do not inflate prices to generate income. All property investments are carefully considered and independent valuations ensure that you are paying below or at market value.

  • 7. What return can I expect from my property?

    With the power of leverage property historically outperforms traditional asset classes on averaging doubling every 7-10 years. However, at Lifestyle we also ensure that the property financing is structured in the most efficient way. In doing this it is not unusual for the properties to provide you with a passive income on a monthly basis whilst still increasing in asset value

  • 9. What is shared equity ownership?

    Shared ownership is essentially partial ownership of a property. With this type of ownership, a property is owned and shared by at least two, and often several, individuals. This type of ownership is popular with holiday homes and resorts and allows you to benefit from ownership usage and privileges without the concern of only using for a few weeks or months of the year.

    Do you want a holiday home without the burden of costs/repairs and upkeep? Contact us now for further information.

  • 10. Can I source these properties myself?

    Most of the developments which we market will be exclusive to investors and such are not available to the public directly. As much as it is possible to purchase investment property independently it is a very time consuming exercise and many people cannot prefer to rely on a professional company to do this. In addition to this with the level of due diligence carried out on all properties and the turnkey solution offered you will often find that the best investment opportunities are with Lifestyle and you would not be able to source such a complete solution alone.
