Innovative Scheme for Investors in Bicester

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 25, 2013) - Considering homes in your area? Well, leading house builder David Wilson Mercia is offering investors in Bicester the chance to receive a six per cent annual return through an innovative initiative to sell show homes at its De Lacy Fields development to buy-to-let investors.

David Wilson Mercia's show home sale and leaseback scheme allows investors to purchase a fully furnished show home and then rent it back to the housebuilder for an agreed fixed term.

There are several benefits for the buyer, one being that they have a guaranteed tenant for the duration of the lease. Additionally to this, they will also have peace of mind, as they can be confident that the housebuilder will take care of the property. What's more, they will also receive a guaranteed six per cent annual rental yield.

This scheme is already proving a hit with cash buyers looking to invest their hard earned savings in bricks and mortar and David Wilson Mercia is pleased to announce it is currently offering this scheme on the five-bedroom Beckley show home at De Lacy Fields.

The Beckley is priced at £600,000. This property represents excellent value for money and even better news, this property comes with an annual return of £36,000.00 thanks to the six per cent annual yield this scheme offers.

"We're delighted to have our show home available for investors in Bicester" commented Steve Barton, Sales Manager for David Wilson Mercia. "It offers terrific value for anyone who is looking to invest in property with minimal risk - as you have a guaranteed tenant for the full duration of the lease.

"And rather than having to worry about untidy tenants, the investor knows that we will maintain the property in pristine condition. We will even guarantee the internal fixtures and fittings for a full five years, another added incentive that is proving an attractive draw to investors."

The five-year fixtures and fittings guarantee is in addition to the existing ten-year NHBC warranty on the structure of new homes and remains valid even if the home is sold on to a new owner.

"If you're looking to invest in something that will give you a decent, guaranteed return on your money, why not consider investing in our show home? Speak to our experienced sales team who can tell you more."
