£25,000 High Yield Mortgage Up Front Investment

MRA identify a suitable modern 2-bed mews house in a popular location in North East England. The vendors are very eager to sell for financial reasons. The asking price is £84,950 and we negotiate hard to agree to purchase the property on your behalf at £75,000. The property had been worth circa £105,000 in September 2007.

A 75% BUY-TO-LET MORTGAGE is arranged for the investor*, therefore £18,750 of the cash investment is used as the deposit. The property is fully redecorated, recarpeted and prepared for letting. All further costs associated with finding, purchasing and letting the property are included in the original £25,000 investment. Legal costs for the purchase, along with building and contents insurance premiums for the first year, are also included. A full breakdown of all costs are included in the original property report provided to the investor.

The property is then let at £495 per calendar month and you receive £436 per calendar month after deducting our 10% plus VAT management fee. The mortgage repayment costs are £210 per month based on a currently available interest only fixed rate mortgage at 4.49% PA. You therefore make a gross profit of £226 per month or £2,712 per annum. This is a 10.8% annual yield on each £25,000 net cash investment.

The refurbished property is independently valued in the current climate at £82,000 which is £750 more than the total amount invested, i.e. MRA package price of £25,000 plus the mortgage of £56,250 equals £81,250. This £750 “instant” growth in value represents a further 3% return on the original cash investment of £25,000. Realistic anticipated capital growth of 3.5% per annum over a ten year cycle would increase the value of the property to £116,000 at the end of 10 years.

This is a gross combined Yield plus Capital Growth asset backed return on your investment of 25% in year 1 alone.
