Some people think that Rob D isn’t a new builds kinda guy, this isn’t true. New builds are great for hands off investors, but you need to be aware of key points to be successful.

Why you would in invest

All new appliances and 10 year warranty – Ideal for hands off investors

BMV possibility if you buy in volume – learn more on buying BMV in our course here. 

Tennant appeal – What would you lease a new car or an old car?

Buying process – No chain

Lower energy bills

Why you wouldn’t

Hard to add value – So not great for investors who want to be hands on

Snagging

Other things to be aware of

Are they overpriced in the first place?

Time to let on a large new development?
