Invest In A Brand New Home In Britain's Oldest City
09 Jul 2015

If you’ve ever considered investing in property in the Colchester area, this might be the time to make further investigations.

For your first foray into property speculation (or maybe you’re an old hand) you should certainly consider Northfields. Northfields is a development created by multi award winning house builder Linden Homes.

The development has a good mix of houses and apartments located just over half a mile from the mainline station. Currently there are one and two bedroom apartments available.

The homes are finished to a very high standard and the kitchens and bathrooms fully fitted with guaranteed appliances. They’re ready for your tenant to move into.

You’ve found your property, now you need to find your tenant:

Colchester – said to be the oldest recorded settlement in Britain - is a very popular commuter destination. They may have to work in London, but people want to live here, as they have done for millennia. For the commuters London Liverpool Street is just 50 minutes away and trains travel into the capital up to five times an hour.

If your prospective tenant doesn’t work in London, then there’s a good chance they work at Colchester Hospital, which is possibly one of the biggest employers in the city.

Karen Roake is the sales and marketing director for Linden Homes Eastern:

“Colchester is a very exciting prospect for a property investor and approximately 25% of our buyers at the Northfields development have been investors showing the investment appetite in the area. There will always be people wanting to rent good properties in the city. Colchester has many, many commuters who travel to London every day, but want a home base in Essex and the thriving local economy – in particular the Colchester Hospital Trust – means many people are already employed locally or are moving to the area to take up jobs here – all of whom need somewhere to live.”

For more details on the apartments available at Northfields please visit the sales and marketing suite which is open every day from 10am to 5pm. Alternatively you can call 0844 417 3904 (This call will cost you 7p per minute plus your phone company’s access charge) or visit the Linden Homes’ website.
