Why invest in
fourth-largest city, is an exciting and modern place with a population of over
560,000. It is one of the UK’s popular destinations for students, playing host
to over 60,000 domestic and overseas students, a high proportion of whom choose
to stay, or return and settle in the city.
There are currently over
£1billion of major schemes underway in Sheffield, including New Era Square, the
city’s pioneering, £65 million, 21st century ‘Chinese Quarter’. The complex,
due for completion in 2018 (and very close to the Sheffield Central
development), will include retail units, offices and an exhibition hall
surrounding a central, open-air public events space, as well as a ‘business
incubator’ to enhance trade links between China and the UK.
10% net return on studio apartments for students where demand outstrips supply
ONE London Road is a brand new investment opportunity in the UK Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) sector, a chance to purchase a fabulous income generating asset.
With a huge shortage of quality accommodation in the area, ONE London Road (Phase 3) offers a unique and unrivaled option for students at an incredibly competitive price:
Home to two universities, the area is screaming out for quality student accommodation. Demand versus supply is probably the strongest in the UK.
Modern self contained, fully furnished studio apartments, with a kitchenette and an en-suite bathroom, completed to a high standard.
Of the 282 originally offered just over 40 remain available.
With the town centre an easy 10 minute walk, ONE London Road will cater for students at both Keele and Staffordshire Universities.
All apartments priced at a very attractive £69,999.
10% net returns assured for 3 years excluding Ground Rent (£350).
Payment to purchase is spread throughout the build.
4% interest paid on deposited funds until completion.
The developer has an excellent track record, having built the 100% occupied, 160 room Keele House nearby.
Keele University will list the development on their dedicated accommodation site, where students can book apartments direct.
The first two blocks sold out quickly and are already under construction for completion in xxxx.
Phase 3 will complete in time for the 2020 academic year intake.
Newcastle-under-Lyme is a historic market town in Staffordshire and part of the wider Stoke-on-Trent area. With a population of 75,125 and a regional catchment area in excess of 140,000 the town has excellent transport links with the A500 providing direct access to the nearby M6.
Direct rail services are available to London, Birmingham, Manchester and further afield from nearby Stoke-on-Trent railway station. Manchester and Birmingham International Airports are situated 35 and 54 miles away respectively and easily accessible.
Newcastle-Under-Lyme has grown to become an education and service hub with both Keele University and the Royal Stoke University Hospital, one of the largest hospitals in the UK, situated in the town.
In addition, the University of Staffordshire in nearby Stoke-on-Trent, has campuses across the country being consolidated into this location.
Situated on London Road, the development is a 10 minute walk to the town centre. The Royal Stoke University Hospital, home to the Keele University Medical School, is only a 5 minute walk in the opposite direction.
The site provides easy access to both Keele and Stafford Universities, which are directly accessible in approx 20 minutes from bus stops located outside the development, with 4 buses per hour throughout the day. The Student Market
The Newcastle & Stoke region is the largest higher education destination in Staffordshire and extremely popular with students. Keele University and the University of Staffordshire currently have a combined 24,270 full time students.
The local Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) market is in its infancy in comparison to other UK locations with student populations of this size. The supply of PBSA is limited, with the vast majority of beds being under University ownership and both out dated and poorer quality.
In Newcastle there are currently only 160 beds available in the direct let market. These are located in one scheme, Keele House, a previous and successful project by this developer. A further 440 are available in Stoke-On-Trent across three schemes. The area is significantly under supplied for the number of students there and this will only increase with the continued growth and popularity of Keele University.
The majority of students are currently forced to live in poor quality HMO’s located throughout the area, vastly inferior to the product provided by ONE London Road, which will offer the highest quality accommodation for students in the region, superior to all current options.
Phase 3 of ONE London Road follows in the same design, and high quality that was offered in Phases 1 & 2, both now sold out. The development has been very popular with investor clients due to the practicality provided by the development to the students it will service.
These are high specification self contained studio apartments, with the majority being a generous 18 sqm.
Phase 3 will complete in time for the 2020 academic year intake.
A landmark scheme, ONE London Road provides quality accommodation and amenities for its student residents, with easy access to Keele and Staffordshire Universities, as well as the town centre.
Phase 3 is arranged over ground and three further floors, with a roof terrace and use of the spacious external communal space. A generous amount of car parking is provided, giving ease of access for students moving in and out, for investors this also provides further potential for income generation. Residents also have use of the onsite bike storage.
These high quality furnished apartments provide spacious accommodation compared to many student pods. Contemporary interiors compliment a refined exterior with inspired details.
A restrained palette of materials that have a timeless elegance. Oak and porcelain are used with modern detailing to ensure they do not date. Door handles, light fittings and switches are a classic design.
The on-site amenities for residents will include:
Lounges / communal study spaces
Fully equipped gyms
Communal roof garden with bbq
Reception / Lobby
Large amount of car parking spaces
Secure bike storage

Here, we hope, you will find useful information and opportunities that you can rely on to deliver what they promise. There are many types of Property Investments and Investors. What is perfect for one is of no interest to another. We have tried to find a small range of the best opportunities. Investments come and go, so if you don’t find what you are looking for please revisit. Or better still, please contact me personally with any queries or thoughts on my email : email@example.com.
My colleagues and I have had varying degrees of experience in the Property Investment Industry. Some experiences have been fantastic and others have been, frankly, disappointing. We have worked for agencies and developers across a spectrum of property classes mainly in the UK and Europe.
When I started out I just did what I was told with very little understanding of the product or opportunity. I certainly had no knowledge of any potential risks for clients. Just sell. That was the way it worked. In some cases and places it still is. Over time I gained a firsthand (yes, I invested my own money) knowledge of how the industry works.
I became a cynic and almost a specialist on when and why it didn’t work. Bad partnerships of Developers and Agents that were doomed at the outset, due to greed and a lack of transparency on either part or both. No safety nets in place. People chasing commissions rather than long term client relationships. Recently a wise old Sikh gentleman summed up the offerings to agents from developers. “The higher the commissions the bigger the risk to the client.” How true !!
Doing it Right
We have taken all our knowledge and use it to find the safest and best deals in the marketplace. If we don’t think a client’s money is secure we won’t promote an Investment. We only look at developers with a proven track record. We ask a lot of “What if ?” questions to ensure that every possible occurrence has a contingency plan.
It is not all about protecting your Investment, though that comes first. It is imperative that completions take place on time and that mortgages, if required, are obtainable and the property is fit for finance purposes. A regular flow of information from the developer is important to see that milestones are being achieved on time.
We Want The Same Thing
A good agent looks after clients and only promotes solid Investments. A good agent judges an Investment on its merits rather than their own earnings. A good agent becomes a great agent because of repeat business. We hope to serve you in the years to come.
If you ever need some information (not necessarily on our opportunities) or have any questions, feel free to contact me on the details below and I will be more than happy to help.
