It seems strange but in the UK, land and property earn much more than people do, which is probably why it is the investment of choice for the ultra-wealthy. Today, the value of property in the UK stands at a staggering £5tn which represents almost 60% of the country’s entire net wealth. To give you an idea of how much the bubble has inflated in the past 25 years, the total value was at just £1tn in 1995.
What is galling to the majority of us is that the very few people owning large portfolios of land and property have benefited hugely from public investment in infrastructure. That means, the taxpayer is effectively helping to swell the enormous fortunes of Britain’s wealthiest property moguls.
This year’s Sunday Times Rich List reveals that a staggering 26 of the top 100 richest people in the country have property listed as a major source of their wealth. That dwarfs the other biggest sources. Just six of the top 100 made their money from industry, and seven from retail. Finance and investment have 10 entries apiece.
What’s the Secret?
There’s truth in the expression ‘money goes to money’. It’s not just the fact that as you accumulate it, your reluctance to part with any grows greater every day. Psychologists have found that money dramatically changes how we see the world. Having money gives you more autonomy and control over your own life. Wealthy people tend to be more narcissistic and think they’re more able and skilled than the average person and perhaps if we were in their shoes we would feel the same way? However, there’s more to being a successful property investor than having a big bank balance in the first place.
It’s more about finding the right deal. Any investment depends almost entirely on the point of entry. That’s why savvy investors don’t make the same trade as their mate down the pub who made a killing on a certain stock. Successful investors don’t follow the herd; they’re too far in front to notice how far behind the competition is.
The key factor giving successful property investors the edge is that they tend to come across the best deals. Properties that haven’t yet gone to market or require a quick under-the-counter sale are much more likely to fall under their radar as known buyers than humble investors like you and I! We have to wait for our golden opportunities to get listed before we can even start negotiations. Or do we?
GET DIRECT ACCESS TO HUNDREDS OF UK PROPERTIES AT UP TO 50% BELOW VALUATION
Investing Direct is extremely excited to be announcing the imminent launch of the UK’s FIRST PROBATE PROPERTY PORTAL.
Did you know that thousands of homes across the country go into probate for onward sale EVERY YEAR? These are properties that are not listed by any estate agent anywhere as they are usually snapped up only by those in-the-know.
Through our connections in the legal profession, Investing Direct has EXCLUSIVE access to HUGELY DISCOUNTED homes currently held in probate. As you can imagine, this is highly desirable information which is why you will only be able to access specific property details when you become a member which requires verification of your financial status.
Why Prove your Financial Status?
The properties available on our portal do not have a long shelf life. This is because they are heavily discounted to valuation and not subject to negotiation. Usually, these properties would go to auction but Investing Direct ‘cuts them off at the pass’ to give you the direct benefit of some HUGE DISCOUNTS.
There is no time to view any of the homes listed on our portal beyond a ‘drive past’ should you wish to organise that yourself. There is also no time to undertake a survey or building inspection. From the moment a probate property is listed, the race is on to place a non-refundable 10% deposit to bind you to secure it, with completion in 28 days.
As with auction houses, we can only take deposits from people we know are good for the balance of funds. Due to sheer demand for discounted UK homes, we seek to avoid timewasting on either side.
Don’t Want to Tie-Up Your Capital?
Another reason we stipulate members meet certain financial criteria before gaining access to our probate property portal is that you will automatically PRE-QUALIFY FOR UP TO 95% MORTGAGE FINANCE.
This allows you to reduce your capital outlay in procuring MASSIVELY BELOW VALUATION HOMES and enables you to ‘flip’ them for a quick profit. With a savvy strategy, you could find yourself completely MORTGAGE-FREE when buying your investment properties with Investing Direct.
Looking for a Principal Home?
Affordability is a massive issue in the UK, with the private rental sector growing rapidly while home ownership is dwindling. This is largely due to the exponential rises in property prices we’ve witnessed in most parts of the UK in recent years.
When you buy a home with Investing Direct, you don’t have to have a huge amount of capital. If you have sufficient income to meet repayments, we can arrange up to 95% MORTGAGE FINANCE at excellent rates to help you make your purchase.
Listed properties are affordable because they are available for much less than their valuation price and with interest rates at an all-time low, now is the time to buy!
Probate property is not sold for a profit like most homes are. There are usually two basic reasons probate property is sold. One is because the estate must raise cash to pay the debts and estate taxes of the deceased. The other reason is the heirs don’t want the property and they want the estate executor or administrator to sell the deceased’s property for cash.
Homes in probate usually wind up at auctions but with Investing Direct, you can view them before anyone else.
