When Richard and Yvonne Byles, decided to invest in their first buy to let property, they wanted something which was high quality, in a good location and achieve a good return, so when they discovered Swale Park by Weston Homes, they knew it was the perfect first investment for them.
Richard Byles commented: “This was our first property investment and we felt that purchasing a new build property would remove any stress and worries as there was no need to undertake any refurbishment and the tenant can move straight in. We live locally so if we ever need to pop to the flat its very easy.”
Richard and Yvonne purchased a two bedroom apartment at the development, which features spacious double bedrooms and open plan kitchen, living and dining area. Richard added “We were really impressed when we visited Swale Park. The quality and finish was excellent. The apartment has been completed to a high specification and the communal spaces are also excellently finished. Weston Homes have done a great job.
“The price was suitable for us and we felt it was really affordable for what we were looking for. We were able to purchase it outright and expect to receive a 7% yield. We felt the apartment was a good investment as it appeals to couples, professionals and young families, particularly locals who work in the area.
“This is our first of our property portfolio and we are delighted with our choice. The development has excellent transport links into London and is a short walk to the local shops and parks. We are planning for our retirement and this will give us extra income during our retirement."
Weston Homes has experienced excellent sales success at the development, with over 70% now sold. The final phase of apartments has proved popular with first time buyers, couples and investors due to its well connected location and quality.
Each new home will offer the signature Weston Homes specification with solid wood doors, designer Oakwood kitchens, Oak flooring and fitted wardrobes, providing luxury living in an excellent location.
The final collection of homes are ideal for those looking to live in the quaint fishing town of Whitstable, which provides a range of boutique shops, historic harbour and art galleries.
Whitstable is ideally located with access to London via the A2/M2. Those interested in travelling into London can travel from Whitstable train station to reach either London Victoria or Cannon Street in around an hour and a half.
