READING Property Investment Guide

For property investors who are researching Reading property and want to know the facts before investing.

Reading Property Investment


"Reading is going to see a huge boost , we know this at Gladfish  because we have done our research so you don't have to.


Reading has been a leader in business since its early days, but now with the Crossrail build making links to central London even this town would be a sure investment. There is a large redevelopment site right in the centre of town. It is just minutes walk away from Reading Central, which has up to 200 trains an hour heading into London.


Not only is central London located close by, but so is Heathrow Airport, which is only an hour away. You are also able to get to the West-Country with ease because of its proximity to the M4."

Where are your properties?

Our Developer partners build across the UK so we can source in any area although primarily Britain and our preference is in the best areas of London, Manchester and Birmingham. Our speciality is targeting properties in the best areas and those undergoing massive regeneration.

Whilst our website has many developments on it we also have a variety of off market private options which developer's wish to keep totally off market, these could be units they want to see outside their usual marketing channels. 

One of our favourite strategies is to get in early while the price is low while working with developers who operate an incremental price increase policy as they build. This means investors can see growth throughout the build.

How much does it cost?

Nothing until you buy a property. We are a buyers agent and therefore look to get you the best price and effortlessly guide you through the process. Many properties we negotiate discounts off their values in these cases we may charge an Agents fee but many do not. We also will charge you to manage the property on an ongoing basis. All of these charges will be given to you before you make your decision. 

In fact, as part of our commitment we prepare a Two Year Cash Flow Worksheet for every property you purchase, giving you a true picture of the likely cash flow during your first 2 years of ownership. Speak to the team about running through one of our cash flows.

It's this level of transparency that is missing from most Estate Agents who provide very light-on details.

What is the buying process?

Once you select a property and are happy to proceed you will be introduced to your dedicated Progression Manager who will organise the finance and conveyance for you. They can guide you and support you with the various forms that need to be filled out. 

Closer to completion we will organise furniture and fittings and begin the marketing of the property so you have a tenant in the shortest possible time. 

Whatever stage you are at and what the question you have we have team that can answer your questions, allay your fears and deal with those emotional and frustrating moments where things seem to go wrong (they do happen).

Sends me updates on a regular basis even if I can't respond

Sharon is super helpful and goes out of her way to make things happen.
An example she has asked one of the Galliard staff to meet me this morning at 9 am on site outside of their normal days allocated to be there. I am always travelling and Sharon sends me updates on a regular basis even if I can't respond. Sharon has also put me in touch with a fab mortgage broker who is taking action. THANKS, SHARON!!

Geoff - Buyer

Successful in property development

We didn't like the idea of paying large up-front fees, nor of developing a portfolio so quickly, or indeed of paying £2000 for attending seminars on how to build up a successful portfolio. We came across Gladfish on the internet. There was something refreshingly different about Brett's philosophy. Instead of "the big sell", he was interested in developing the investor's knowledge of how to become successful in property development. Gladfish enables clients to develop their portfolio gradually and more importantly "cash flowed" to reduce possible problems at a later stage. Brett and the team have assisted us to develop a £1.4 million portfolio both here and in Spain and have assisted with any snags as they invariably crop up.

Smooth and seamless process

This was my first experience buying an off-plan property and that too as an ex-pat. The whole process seemed very daunting and confusing however I must acknowledge that the Ezytrac team and in particular Caroline Bevis made it as simple as possible. Caroline was absolutely professional in the way she handled the whole process from initial deposit through to completion. She kept me fully updated and remained very responsive to each and every query that I had. I have no hesitation in recommending Caroline and the Ezytrac team to anyone looking to purchase a property in the UK and will surely be using them for my future purchases.

Salman M - Investor

Understands the market well

I recommend Gladfish to anyone interested in investing in property. Speak to Ritesh, he really understands the market well and will make the process easy for you! These guys are more focused on helping you hit your investment goals rather than just flogging you a property. 10/10.

Henry

We have since increased this to 3

Though we were initially only looking at a single purchase, we have since increased this to 3, because the team make us feel very confident in what we, and they, are doing. We would recommend them to anyone.

Richard

Always there when needed.

Olivia has been great, and did everything she could to help make things quicker and easier for me, always responded straight away to emails and calls so always there when needed.

Best options to invest in property

Gladfish team explained the best options for me to invest in property, helped me to set up my property investment strategy plan. They do everything for me and I don't need to give up my full-time job. With Gladfish, my properties are now generating very healthy rent income. The capital gain on two of my properties is more than 20%. I am very glad that I have chosen Gladfish as my property investment agent.

Helen

Educational Experience

It has been an educational experience so far. On the whole, the service has been professional and personalised. I have been very impressed with the staff, pleasant, professional, approachable, and just a pleasure to talk to.
