Guaranteed Seven Percent Yield for Showhome Investors With David Wilson Homes' Lease Back Scheme

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 30, 2012) - LEADING housebuilder David Wilson Homes has put in place a Lease Back scheme whereby buy-to-let investors can purchase one of their show homes and lease it back to them. Specifically the new home builders have a variety of show homes available for buy-to-let investors at a number of their key developments in Scotland.

One of the key advantages of the Lease Back scheme is that it provides a guaranteed tenant for the duration of the lease, as well as up to 7% per annum rental yield (paid monthly) guaranteed for the entirety of the term and the potential for free fixtures, fittings and furnishings.

Steve Mariner Sales and Marketing Director at David Wilson Homes West Scotland says, "Buyers have the opportunity to buy the show homes, including all the fixtures and fittings, at excellent developments then immediately lease it back to us for two years to use as a marketing suite."

"Rather than have to worry about untidy tenants, the investor knows that we will maintain the property in pristine condition. David Wilson Homes is also the only major housebuilder which guarantees internal fixtures and fittings for up to a full five years."

Rents throughout the UK are continuing to rise meaning that rental homes are increasingly in demand. Where purchasers were once primarily interested in flats; since 2007 interest has turned more in the direction of a purchase of a high-quality new house as an investment.

Steve adds, "The direction of house prices in the medium term is up. So investors can expect to be sitting on a tidy profit in two to three years time."
