Numerous guests attended Wyatt Homes’ recent Brimsmore investor evening in conjunction with estate agents Symonds & Sampson at their highly popular Brimsmore development in Yeovil. Potential investors seeking a quality investment benefited from expert co-host speakers advising on changes to and new legislation around the buy-to let investment market and the build quality of a Wyatt Home. One 77 Mortgages were on hand to give information on buy-to-let mortgages and highlight the best lending rates available and Howard Jones Accountancy explained the tax benefits of owning an investment property.
Helyn Niblett, Sales Manager at Wyatt Homes comments: “We were delighted with the turnout at our first investor evening. High quality properties attract high quality tenants and Wyatt is hoping to attract investors looking for a good long term sustainable investment. We pride ourselves on our commitment to good energy performance in all our new homes, awarded an EPC High B rating at Brimsmore, so we are already prepared for next year’s new legislation, requiring all newly let properties to have an EPC rating of E or above.”
Existing owners at Brimsmore are benefiting from very low utility bills; each home has low energy fittings and lighting appliances, plus highly efficient boilers and heating systems and weather compensation, with the larger houses offering underfloor heating.
Rachael James, Partner and Head of Lettings at Symonds and Sampson comments: “It was encouraging to welcome so many people at the event. With extensive changes in the buy-to-let market place, this informative event brought everyone together and was an opportunity to gain professional guidance and advice.”
“We have been very impressed with the finish of the Wyatt Homes at their Brimsmore development. We have seen a growing demand from our clients who wish to invest in a safe buy to let property, and wanting capital appreciation on a long term home for possibly future generations; this has led us to look to Wyatt to provide this. We consider a new home at Brimsmore a win-win situation for both landlord and tenant. For landlords, a new high quality Wyatt home requires little maintenance and therefore runs at low cost. For tenants, a Wyatt home offers high quality kitchens and bathrooms with an excellent energy performance keeping bills low.”
“Recommending a Wyatt Home to landlords is in every sense a good investment – they build in attractive locations with good facilities and amenities nearby. Their stand-out property design and choice of location are ideal for tenants looking for easy access for commuting, transport and schools,” says Rachael James.
Miles Robinson, Mortgage Sales Director at One 77 Mortgages comments; “Despite changes to the buy-to-let market, the event’s success highlights that there is an appetite when it comes to property investment. Providing a steady flow of information in order to meet this demand and ensure that prospective property investors have everything they need is crucial, not just for the South West economy, but also the UK economy in general.”
