Successful property professional Justyn O’Shaugnessy has followed his own advice and invested in a couple of Telford Homes apartments. Justyn is a 36- year old property hunter, who finds properties for people to invest in and advises them on making the best property decisions. He comments: “At our company, we don’t just seek any type of properties but units that offer a high standard of quality with generous capital and strong rental yields. Telford Homes provide this every time.”

From the beginning of the process to the end, his company – Indigo Property Search Ltd – sources the right property for the client and deals with all the logistics from negotiating the price, arranging finance, liaising with solicitors and even after purchase, securing good value furnishing and managing the whole tenant – finding process. Justyn’s company has acquired properties at 14 different Telford Homes’ developments with over £22 million in investment purchase value.

Justyn identified East London as having stronger capital returns and rental yields than other parts of London. With Telford Homes having a big prominence in the area, it was the logical decision to check out the apartment specialist. He discovered that their product and specification stood out from other developers, while offering value-for-money homes. Not only did he begin recommending Telford Homes properties to his clients, but he decided to purchase a couple of properties for personal investment. He bought his first apartment at Cubix Apartments in Bow and another at One Stratford, on the City side of Stratford.

Justyn comments: “The regeneration in preparing for the Olympics is a huge bonus to East London which will help towards balancing the wealth from other parts of the capital. Also, it has great character and history in abundance, plus is close to both the City and Canary Wharf where the majority of jobs are situated. East London is a very affordable location with the young and offers great opportunities for sharp entrepreneurs.”

The apartments at Telford Homes feature interiors fitted out to the high quality standards associated with the premier apartment builder. For each of the developments, there is a dedicated customer service support team providing exceptional service and carrying out rigorous quality control through inspection and a set handover procedure; the aim is to ensure that all purchasers are at least 100% satisfied with their new home! There is the additional 24/7, 365 days a year emergency service (free of charge for two years) to minimise fuss for residents and ensure any problems are swiftly resolved.

Justyn further comments: “The service at Telford Homes is unrivalled by their competitors in the area. In my experience with other large developers, once you complete you become just a number. At Telford Homes, they continue to look after you and help manage your property for two years. This is essential as there is always a time of settling in where problems can arise with new build units. Telford Homes deal with any issues and make my clients feel valued and comfortable. The team that we’ve worked with has been the same since 2004 and this provides us much confidence in them.”

Regarding the current property market, Justyn believes that now is a fantastic time to buy, commenting: “It’s good to finally see a market in favour of the buyer. I would encourage every buyer who is waiting to see what happens to go forth and negotiate. The current opportunities and reductions will not last for much longer as base rate starts to drop. The tipping point will be when it’s cheaper to buy than to rent. At present it’s cheaper to rent than to buy. I truly believe as quickly as the market has dropped, it can also rebound just as fast.”
