How to Get a Hearty Return on Your Investment (and Enjoy a Slower Pace of Life)

This year has been unprecedented. Never before have we felt such a need to look after our families and prepare for the future. Many of us are now able to work from home and so are making the move away from the big cities to find a slower, more peaceful way of life. Investing in a new home which can also give you a healthy return on investment is the kind of savvy move your future self will thank you for making!

Dreams of Escape

Exacerbated by the pressures of lockdown, city dwellers are tempted by the extra space, swathes of greenery and lower property prices than they find in the city. Watching the sun set as you enjoy supper on the terrace, taking the kids to the beach after school and enjoying woodland walks at the weekend is all part of the charm.

In the past the trend has been for people to have their main base in the city and a holiday home in the country. The pandemic means that times are a-changing, and now many folk are keeping a bolt-hole in the city but moving their main home to the countryside. Investing in a new home in Cornwall not only gives you the lifestyle you crave, but it can help you to garner a healthy second income if you rent it out as a holiday home for part of the year whilst you are working in the city or travelling.

The Return – Up to £80,000 a Year

We have partnered with Cornwall’s premier holiday let agents who have predicted a 6-7% gross return for owners who choose to place their new Green and Rock home onto the holiday let market with Cornish Gems. This equates to a gross income of £70-£80k per annum, with 15-20 weeks per year left for you to enjoy the house yourselves. With their careful guidance on housekeeping, how to run a holiday let and all the other necessaries, your investment will soon see a healthy return.
