Venture Business Centre
Commercial Development in Liverpool
After identifying the need for premium office accommodation with the northern suburbs of Liverpool, Venture Business Centre opened its doors for business in 2014.
The site was a regeneration of a larger and more traditional office building, Venture Business Centre was financed by unitised sales and was brokered, renovated and is now managed by the wider family of Capital Developments.
Venture business centre is already fully occupied, providing the original Investors with a high return on their original investment. This project had a GDV of £1million.
Capital Developments offer clients who invest with us a wide range of services, all with the key aim of making the process of acquiring one of our properties as simple and hassle-free as possible.
This includes the following areas:
At Capital Developments we aim to make the management of our properties as simple as possible for the investor, once they are completed. We have found that for many international landlords in particular, the issue of long-term management in particular can be off-putting.
Capital Developments solves this issue by appointing an experienced rental management team who have years of knowledge to take care of our investors properties, once completed. Our in-house team liaises with our property management professionals to ensure that our investors' properties are let out and managed successfully.
Capital Developments will ensure that our clients' investments achieve what we consider to be very competitive rental returns in a stress-free manner.
Capital Developments has the experience and contacts to ensure that our investor clients are given the most professional mortgage advice possible, where relevant and required. Many of our properties are mortgageable (subject to status) and we offer our clients the option of having a fully-qualified mortgage broker to assess their needs before their property completes.
