Why are Property Bonds growing in popularity?

More and more,  property investors and traditional savers alike are becoming attracted to Property Bonds as a way of boosting income and avoiding the hassles of direct property ownership.

Here are a few of the drivers that are prompting this interest – do any of this resonate with you (especially if you’re still learning about this asset class)?

  1. Bank interest rates for savers are at an all-time low. Savings accounts in the UK are  struggling to keep up with inflation, let alone provide any real growth.
  2. Property is still seen as a secure asset class by those who know, and with not enough homes being built in the UK demand continually outstrips the supply.
  3. There are more and more obstacles in directly owning investment property. Heavier taxation for residential investment property and reduction of tax reliefs for expenses;difficulty in raising mortgage finance for buy to let; dealing with tenants; licensing; regulation, the possibility of rent controls; the list goes on). Many property investors are looking for less hassle and more profit: being the lender, not the landlord.
  4. As part of this movement, investors who are cash-rich and time-poor are looking to partner with developers by lending rather than getting directly involved in the day-today running of projects.
  5. In uncertain economic times a predictable fixed income for a known period of time has much appeal.
  6. Whilst no investment is in any way risk-free, modern Property Bond structures can offer credible security and a practical exit strategy should things go wrong with the developer – something that isn’t usually available to direct peer to peer property lenders, for example.

Property Bonds are not for everyone – but if you qualify they have the potential to offer a very interesting boost to one’s income and wealth – but only if you choose wisely.

[property bonds]  How a former Berlin Sorting office is being transfored into luxury apartments

As part of our service to clients both present and future, we like to keep a close eye on our property developers. Dolphin Trust has a remarkable track record but that’s no excuse for complacency on our part. 

On our most recent Inspection Trip to Berlin to visit Dolphin Trust development projects, one of the most striking to date has to be the restoration of this former East German sorting office, the CARRÉE ALTE POSTE.

Dolphin are transforming this fascinating former East German building preserving its impressive interior architectural features, whilst complementing with additional new build to the rear into spacious luxury city apartments on track to complete later this year.

Built between 1925 and 1929 “Post Office Lichtenberg I” on Dottistrasse is a striking and impressive four-storey building in Berlin. With a deep history spanning over seven decades, the
post office was a hub of communication throughout some of the city’s most troublesome years.

Dolphin Trust are currently working on constructing 48 luxurious apartments within the walls of the historic building and also have plans to construct four residential buildings with 90 stylish
apartments, an additional courtyard and a large common green area. This photo was taken during our visit in March this year and shows construction work underway.

HighGround and Dolphin Trust offer qualifying investors fixed double-digit annual interest paid six-monthly over an agreed number of years, after which capital is returned to the investor.
