DIVERSIFYING YOUR INCOME
To better serve new clients seeking investment opportunities, it is crucial for us to gain a comprehensive understanding of their investment preferences and decision-making criteria. Depending on the individual investor’s requirements, there may be a variety of investment options to explore. Our responsibility is to help identify the most suitable investment strategy that aligns with their unique needs and objectives. Requirements for athletes at the start of their career may differ to athletes on the verge of retirement. However, at both stages the principles remain the same, as diversifying income while in such a cut-throat industry as a professional sportsperson is imperative, particularly due to how short-lived an athlete’s career can be. Our aim is to mirror an athlete’s income from their career in sport by investing in property in the most effective way possible to prepare for the day in which they move onto the next chapter after professional sport.
In our experience we have found many of our professional athlete clients prefer ‘turn-key’ investments which offer a completely hands-off approach, allowing them to generate consistent cash flow on a monthly basis. This type of investment frees up their time and attention, enabling them to focus on their careers while their investments work for them in the background. We work with numerous developers across the country who are solely contracted to us to provide our clients with a revolving door of consistent properties each month. These opportunities typically consist of blocks of apartments and HMOs in vast quantities which are refurbished to the buyer’s specification. Upon acquisition, the properties are fully tenanted and managed, providing an effortless ‘armchair experience’ for the investor. This model is ideal for those seeking high-yielding, hands-off investments that are income producing from day one of acquisition.
However, other athletes who may have more time on their hands may prefer value add opportunities. These opportunities benefit investors seeking maximum return and would consider refurbishing distressed properties in need of uplift. Purchasing at 20-30% below market value allows for wider profit margins after refurbishment costs and creates an increase in equity. Refurbishments on these properties will increase the property’s value and rental potential. Exit strategies vary between investors. Many may choose to sell on the open market to first time buyers and home movers after the refurbishment has been completed to maximise profit over a short period of time, while others prefer to add to their portfolio and refinance against the uplifted value. This is preferable for investors looking to build large-scale portfolios as they will use the equity in the uplifted property to use as a deposit for their next acquisition. Renting to professional tenants generates consistent monthly cash flow, ideal for investors building large-scale portfolios for generational wealth.
