What services do Sequre provide?
At Sequre we specialise in assembling bulk deals that provide both small and large investors with access to heavily discounted investment opportunities. However, there are many other services that form part of the deal.
Our flexible range of services allow investors to be as involved as they would like to be. Many prefer to be completely hands-off; this results in our team taking care of each step of the process. This may include the furnishing of the property, recommending mortgage brokers, solicitors and organising the letting and ongoing management of your buy to let investment. Sequre clients get access to pre-negotiated discounted rates on services such as this, which are only available exclusively to our investors.
Some investors choose to take care of these areas themselves if they prefer a more hands on approach to property investment. The most important aspect is that all of our investors are able to take advantage of our ability to negotiate properties in bulk, resulting in all of our property deals being heavily discounted and high yielding.
What Sequre offers investors:
1. Property Deals
As a group of experienced property investors and backed up by a solid core team of knowledgeable individuals, our team negotiate bulk deals that simply cannot be found elsewhere. As a result, all of our properties are heavily discounted, high income producing investments that are low risk.
We work closely with our investors in selecting the right property deals that are tailored to meet their investment requirements and help to achieve long term financial objectives.
2. Due Diligence
Given our many years of experience in property investment, more specifically negotiating large bulk deals, we have a very clear and detailed due diligence process that we carry out on every single property deal.
This due diligence process can take several weeks as we develop an understanding of the build quality, local property values, the strength of the rental demand, typical sales prices, rental prices, other nearby investments, transport routes, local amenities and much more.
Many of our investors have invested significant sums of money into our bulk deals over the years and it is they who are witness to our emphasis on carrying out detailed due diligence. This in turn means that our investors continue to be provided with safe and secure investments that yield continued profit over both the short and long term.
Solicitors play a key role in the acquisition of our bulk property deals because they are experienced in carrying out multiple transactions at a time. This allows us to be able to pre-negotiate discounted fees exclusively for our investors. This also helps to avoid unnecessary costs and delays that often occur on regular property transactions.
However, some of our investors do choose to use their own solicitor if they already have a long standing relationship with them.
Using a mortgage to purchase investment property plays a huge role in the strategy of most of our investors. This means that the capital sum they are investing into property can often be spread over several properties that will lead to higher returns from their investments.
We can recommend ‘all of market’ mortgage brokers who will work closely with you to understand your position and help give you access to the best buy to let mortgages in the market.
Often the best mortgages can be found with banks that are not typically found on the high street and our mortgage brokers will work with you to ensure that your portfolio is supported by the best mortgages that will help you to achieve your financial objectives.
In the current buy to let market most properties need to be furnished. This helps investors to let out the properties much quicker and to achieve higher returns as well as making tax savings.
Our relationships with reputable furniture providers ensures that our investors get access to high quality, heavily discounted furniture packs because we furnish the properties in bulk.
It should be noted however that due to the nature of our bulk deals, many of our properties are already tenanted so the existing furniture is included in the purchase price. This makes it a much more attractive proposition for our investors.
6. Letting and Management
Letting and management plays a crucial role in the success of buy to let property. It is vital that our investors use an experienced letting agent who will let the property out for as much and as quickly as possible. The letting agent should also fully manage the property so that any issues that might arise are swiftly dealt with and our investors can remain completely hands off. The agent will also be responsible for rent collection, and ensuring these funds are then passed over to you each month.
Many deals we bring to our investors are already pre-tenanted, ensuring you gain a return from day one. On others, we are able to recommend reputable letting agents who can let and manage your properties for heavily discounted fees. We have expertly researched select companies who will consistently achieve rents at the top end of the market range ensuring your investment is well looked after.
7. Personal Service
We understand that every investor is different. Some of our investors are very new to the buy to let market and require more of a hand-held personal service. Other more experienced investors prefer that we keep them updated on upcoming property deals so they can commit to the purchase at the earliest opportunity.
Either way, we pride ourselves on being highly experienced property people who provide our investors with a personal service that suits their requirements and helps them achieve their investment ambitions.
8. Portfolio Builder
Many investors are looking to build a well-balanced property portfolio that provides a combination of short term income and long term security with low risk and strong returns.
Using our experience, we can help you devise a detailed strategy that will be monitored over a set period to ensure performance targets are achieved. This entails understanding the amount of capital you are looking to invest and then carefully selecting different properties that work well together within a well balanced portfolio.
9. High Net Worth Investors
For those clients looking to invest upwards of £500,000 we would invite you to meet one of our Directors to discuss certain investment opportunities that suit your requirements.
