Bulk buying - property investors buy full portfolios

New research shows that the buying trends of property investors are changing. In hope of boosting their property portfolios, investors have been purchasing full portfolios as opposed to single properties.

Property lending experts, Octane Capital claim that British investors have been spending an average of 1.2 million for full portfolios.

How do full portfolios work and what are they worth?


Full property portfolios are pieced together over time by a separate investor and then sold altogether. These allow several properties to quickly be offloaded by the seller and give the buyer a chance to rapidly scale up their portfolio.

On average these property portfolios are priced at £1.2 million and come with 6.4 bedrooms. This Is the equivalent of £196,000 per bedroom and offers a yield of 2.9%.
