A Safe as Houses Investor Day is being held from 10am this Saturday, January 26, at the De Vere Village Hotel in Maidstone.

The event will be a one-stop shop for anyone looking to learn more about investing in new build homes. There will be guest speakers and industry experts on hand to answer questions.

Pam Reardon, sales and marketing director for Ward Homes, said: “With the future for pensions looking uncertain, many people are considering property investment to provide an income for their future. “New figures released at the end of last year found that investors could secure an annual 8 per cent return over the next five years by putting their cash into buy-to-let property. The report also found that rents are likely to rise by an average of 18 per cent over the next five years across the country fuelled by demand from young workers unable to get on the property ladder.”

Ward Homes offers stylish homes in desirable locations across Kent, and with recent reports highlighting Kent as a key commuter county, demand for rental property is set to remain high. Investing in a new build home comes with many benefits, along with an NHBC 10 year guarantee, all Ward Homes properties come with an additional five year guarantee on fixtures and fittings. So should anything go wrong – from the boiler to the fridge – Ward Homes has it covered, which is ideal for a rental property.
