Hidden gems in the Resale market

In the rush and excitement of newly listed properties, it’s easy to overlook the opportunities available on the Resale market. Many savvy investors have already discovered the advantages, with almost 17% of all trades on Property Partner accounted for by Resale, totalling £2,564,827 in the 11 months since launch, and growing rapidly.

If you haven’t already bought on the Resale Market, here are some compelling reasons to consider it when planning your next Property Partner investments.

There are often properties available at a discount

As with any market, there are deals to be found. A quarter of all trades on the Resale market so far have been at a discount to market value, from which investors saved a total of £10,539. Another 21% have been bought at, or only a little above market value: between 0 and 2% premium.

It’s easy to diversify quickly

The ‘hidden gems’

By this we mean properties listed on the Resale Market at a false premium. Very often, Property Partner will purchase properties at a discount, which is only realised after the three-monthly Chartered Surveyor’s valuation. In the intervening period, many investors still choose to sell at a price below the predicted uplift.

For example, Sandars Maltings in Gainsborough and 1, 5, 6, 7 Tower Mint Apartments are yet to see uplift from their purchase discount. Gainsborough has traded at an average of 10% premium, and Tower Mint at 11% premium, when investors are expected to receive around 14% and 17% returns on these two investments respectively. This means that the properties are currently trading at a ‘discount’ to the expected 3 month valuation of 4% for Gainsborough, and 6% for Tower Mint Apartments. An attractive prospect.
