Buy to Let: 7%* ROI is back!

It’s no surprise, a combination of reluctance by the banks to lend and a generally nervous economy has made all but the most confident property investor think twice. On-going concerns about pensions and the stock market are making investors look again at the property. But canny investors have been demonstrating their confidence in The Eye since launching in April 2012, creating a healthy balance of owner occupiers and tenants.

Investors are on the lookout for good returns and minimal voids and this is where The Eye wins hands down. In a recent report,  HSBC suggests that Employers’ confidence is returning. Enterprise Zones like Temple Quarter**, which will benefit from this new confidence.  With its central location, The Eye is ideal for the professional tenant, unrivalled transport links make it easy to get to work whilst riverside walks, cafés, bars & restaurants and a gym on the doorstep provide a great work life balance.
