  • They are not mortgageable generally so you need another cash investor for any exit. If you bought a house round the corner from a university and rented it to students you would get 1. a mortgage. 2 A more liquid asset 3. a better yield on the whole. You will also find that you are generally paying 50% on exchange for this investment. You are financing the developer to to build and usually getting no return in the interim. Take the location of your proposed development and find a house nearby. Call a lettings agent to confirm letting demand and do the sums. I'd bet £1000 the returns are better if you go it alone. Another way to buy property more cheaply is to buy a repossession or at auction.
