Experience launches Yieldbase to provide high-yield investment properties to the buy-to-let market
Experience Invest has launched yieldbase – an independent, online platform dedicated to the buying and selling of income-generating rental properties.
Yieldbase allows existing and prospective landlords to buy and sell a range of investment properties, ranging from student accommodation to residential buy-to-let and commercial units.
Yieldbase is one of the first platforms in the UK offering property investors the opportunity to buy and sell fully-managed rental properties. With a focus on new-build developments, each property listed on yieldbase comes fully furnished and is run by a management company, which is responsible for maintenance and arranging tenancy agreements.
The platform also ensures investors with a buy-to-let property can liquidate their asset – by connecting sellers with buyers, yieldbase provides a clear exit for landlords.
The launch of yieldbase comes as research by its parent company Experience Invest found 25 per cent of UK investors are currently locked into investments they cannot liquidate, while 80% are demanding greater transparency surrounding exit strategies.
The properties listed on yieldbase are located in the UK’s top buy-to-let hotspots for capital growth and rental yields, including Luton, Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester. Prices start from £60,000, offering rental yields of up to 8.3 per cent per annum net. Viewings of the listed properties can also be arranged by Yieldbase.
Jerald Solis, Director at yieldbase, says: “The UK’s buy-to-let market has long been sought after by both domestic and international investors. The launch of yieldbase is going to simplify the marketplace – it will connect buyers and sellers of income-generating properties on a transparent, easy-to-use platform.
“For buyers, yieldbase boasts the added convenience of all its listed properties being fully-furnished and run by a management company, removing the costly and time-consuming processes of maintaining the property and finding tenants. This means they can enjoy the perks of being a property investor without the day-to-day hassle of being a landlord.
“Given Experience Invest’s 15-year history specialising in property investment opportunities, we’re confident yieldbase will prove extremely popular among buy-to-let investors who are keen to easily manage their portfolios.”
