A new initiative by a Solihull-based estate agent is helping grow the supply of rental properties across the West Midlands and Warwickshire – attracting attention from investors as far as Hong Kong, Dubai and Switzerland.
DM & Co. Homes launched The Landlords’ Club in December and already more than 170 individuals have signed up, with more joining every day.
Gabrielle Argue (pictured), lettings manager at DM & Co. Homes, who heads up the project, said they were attracting interest from all over the world as well as locally.
“The Landlords’ Club is for anyone from a first time purchaser of a single buy-to-let to serial investors who want to grow their already established portfolio.
“And the offer is not just confined to properties on which DM & Co. Homes is instructed, we scour the area for homes that we believe might provide the kind of rental yield that landlords are seeking.”
Every Wednesday, Gabrielle and her team email out a list of opportunities they have spotted, and she says the response has been remarkable.
“Our first three sales have already completed since we launched in December and there are many more in the pipeline.
“Membership of The Landlords’ Club not only gives investors access to the best rental opportunities, it also introduces them to our excellent lettings service, enabling them to rely on us to look after their assets,” she said.
DM & Co. Homes is a local, independent estate agent covering Solihull, Dorridge, Lapworth, Tanworth-in-Arden and the surrounding areas.
The company has traditional high street offices at The Forest Shopping Centre, Station Road in Dorridge and at The Pavilions, Cranmore Drive in Solihull, along with a recently launched Land and New Homes division that is quickly growing.
It has made a major investment in its head office, based on Cranmore Drive, where its land & new homes, lettings, financial advisors, sales progressors and administration teams are based.
DM & Co. Home’s media team also operates from the Cranmore Drive offices, providing photography, video and content planning that attracts more than 100,000 views a month via YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.
