Sequre Property Investment has announced a £10.4 million cash realisation for over 1,400 investors over the last 12 months, across its high-income producing, buy-to-let property investments in major UK cities.
Headquartered in Manchester, and specialising in assembling bulk deals that provide both small and large investors with access to heavily discounted investment opportunities, Sequre claims it stands out as one of the UK’s leading property investment houses.
Established in 2013, Sequre’s most recent cash return to investors brings the total to £97.8 million overall. It says it has sold more than £120 million worth of buy-to-let properties over the last 12 months, with an average yield of 8.71%, which is well above the UK average. The investment firm has witnessed ‘tremendous annual growth’, reporting consistently notable increases in turnover, year-on-year.
Sequre has also seen an increase in the total value of property sold year-on-year, up by 24.83% to £30,120,560 in Q1 2022, compared with £24,128,891 in Q1 2021. The rental income potential for those investments from deals sold in Q1 2022 alone is £2,620,899 per annum.
Daniel Jackson, sales director of Sequre Property Investment, comments: “Our focus is the provision of high-income producing, turnkey, discounted buy-to-let property investments across the UK.”
He adds: “The rising cost of property, combined with rising inflation and interest rates, can make investments into the rental market a daunting business for some investors. However, it remains a lucrative venture for those who know where to invest and what to invest in and property continues to give better returns than the stock market.”
An expert’s investments insight
Jackson says that, since the start of the pandemic, the stock market has been highly volatile, with most of the world stock markets suffering losses in the trillions of dollars. He also thinks that many international financial institutions were forced to reduce their forecasted growth for 2020 and the years to come.
Jackson continues: “The Dow Jones industrial average suffered its eighth straight week of declines on Friday, ensuring its longest losing streak since 1932, despite adding 8.77 points to 31,261.90 yesterday.
“With this backdrop, it is no surprise that stocks and shares are underperforming in 2022. Analysis by AJ bell shows that the best stock investment would return a profit of just £31,833, while gilts and bonds would return a profit as low as £23,693, over ten years. Investors that choose to keep their cash in savings would see an even poorer return – just £3,082 over 10 years.”
Jackson stated that the key is to know your market and to appreciate that property investment should be undertaken with a long-term view, rather than a smash and grab mentality. The historic market health of a given location can provide you with wonderful insight in this respect, but top-line rental yields can only take you so far.
He also says utilising the knowledge of those in the sector is the best way to maximise your endeavours, whether it be through a tailored investment to suit your individual circumstances, the ability to access bulk deals that can minimise the initial cost of investing or even access to off-market opportunities that aren’t open to the average buy-to-let investor.
Jackson concluded: “All of these approaches can see you secure a far higher yield in any location when compared to the general market.”
