www.wealthandfinance-news.com 4 Wealth & Finance International - Q3 2019 Powered by Experience Invest, yieldbase facilitates the buying and selling of income- generating rental properties. yieldbase Launches to Provide High-Yield Investment Properties to The Buy-To-Let Market Experience Invest has announced the launch of yieldbase; an independent, online platform dedicated to the buying and selling of income-generating rental properties. The firm’s solution allows existing and prospective landlords to buy and sell a range of investment properties, ranging from student ac- commodation to residential buy-to-let and commercial units. A pioneer in the market, yieldbase is one of the first platforms in the UK offering property investors the opportunity to buy and sell fully-managed rental properties. With a focus on new-build develop- ments, each property listed on yieldbase comes fully furnished and is run by a management company, which is responsible for maintenance and arranging tenancy agreements. The platform also ensures investors with a buy-to-let property can liquidate their asset – by connecting sellers with buyers, yieldbase provides a clear exit for landlords. The launch of yieldbase comes as research by its parent company Experience Invest found 25% of UK investors are currently locked into investments they cannot liquidate, while 80% are demanding greater transparency surrounding exit strategies. The properties listed on yieldbase are located in the UK’s top buy-to- let hotspots for capital growth and rental yields, including Luton, Liver- pool, Leeds and Manchester. Prices start from £60,000, offering rental yields of up to 8.3% per annum net. Viewings of the listed properties can also be arranged by Yieldbase. Jerald Solis, Director at yieldbase, commented: “The UK’s buy-to-let market has long been sought after by both domestic and international investors. The launch of yieldbase is going to simplify the marketplace – it will connect buyers and sellers of income-generating properties on a transparent, easy-to-use platform. “For buyers, yieldbase boasts the added convenience of all its listed properties being fully-furnished and run by a management company, removing the costly and time-consuming processes of maintaining the property and finding tenants. This means they can enjoy the perks of be- ing a property investor without the day-to-day hassle of being a landlord. “Given Experience Invest’s 15-year history specialising in property in- vestment opportunities, we’re confident yieldbase will prove extremely popular among buy-to-let investors who are keen to easily manage their portfolios.”
