The old saying that now is the time to invest is certainly true with property although as with all investments the areas which are most appropriate can change with market conditions. Traditionally real estate has proven to be one of the most efficient forms and most reliable form of investment – in our view it is always a good time to invest in property. The current turmoil in certain sectors of the world, and indeed property markets has led to property prices being depressed and created an excellent opportunity for investors

Through our sister company, Lifestyle Brokers, traditional and creative financing solutions are offered for not just your new purchase but also any existing properties. For more information please refer to property financing section. Depending on where you are purchasing we can typically source 60-75% loan to value mortgages and if you own property else where we may even be able to achieve 100% finance for the new purchase using existing equity as security.
One or our Consultants will be with you throughout the whole process to assist and answer any questions you may have. After we have found the most appropriate development to suit your needs, agree on the best available unit and then complete the reservation form your Consultant will guide you through the process to put the necessary finance (if required) in place prior to legal completion. Most developers allow 28 days from receipt of the reservation deposit to exchange of contracts and we will advise you of all required payments against the property.
For an investment property this is not always necessary as it adds to the cost of purchase. The investment is based on the financials and as such the large majority of purchasers will never visit the property they own. By purchasing through Lifestyle Property International you can rest assured that it has satisfied our extensive due diligence procedure and ticked all of the boxes required for a sensible investment which will perform well for you.
This can be one of the biggest concerns of potential investors but need not be with Lifestyle clients. All of the properties brought to the market by Lifestyle Property will already have local letting agents in place to ensure that your property is let out as quickly and this is sometimes often in place prior to completion. We will ensure that your property is marketed prior to completion and typically our properties are let within weeks of completion.
By paying attention to detail and utilizing the services of experts in terms of design and lettings it goes a long way to ensure that you have a profitable and hassle-free ownership.
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.
Our role is to source the best possible deals for all clients. At Lifestyle Property International this is ensured through an extensive due diligence procedure to ensure that every development ticks all the boxes to meet your investment objectives. Macroeconomics, developer stability, financing and location and are just some of the Due Diligence issues that we address before marketing any property.
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 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.
