Property Investment in North Oxford

We were approached by an offshore investment fund looking to secure a long-term residential investment in North Oxford. They were keen to establish a diversified portfolio and were initially planning to invest between £4m and £7m.

After receiving the brief, we quickly identified several exciting development opportunities through our links to local agents and developers. We then arranged a 'tour' for the client's fund managers, backed up with full supporting documentation, yield calculations and due diligence reports.

We successfully acquired a number of properties ranging from new-build apartments to prime North Oxford family homes. Each was either purchased off-market or had been quickly identified as a potential acquisition.

Once this first stage was successfully let, and an income stream established, our client happily instructed up to prepare a second round of acquisitions.

For stage two we identified an exciting large development site close to the new Oxford Parkway train station, comprising a mix of apartments and houses, before construction had begun. We undertook the negotiations with the owner/developer and agreed terms.

A further purpose built apartment block has since been added to the client's portfolio. The portfolio team were instrumental in the success of the development from planning to furnishing and everything in between.
