With a highly accessible transport network, it is seen as a commuter town to Cambridge and London making it a highly attractive destination option for companies, students and business professionals alike.

London Road is located in Hempsted, making it a prime investment hotspot and offering high rental yields right from the point of completion. This small, bespoke, mixed use development offers investors the opportunity to acquire a hands off investment at a discounted price, resulting in an income-producing asset with built in equity from the point of purchase.

About Prosperity
For over twenty years, Prosperity has worked at the heart of the UK property industry. Strong industry knowledge, coupled with an unrivalled contact base of industry and legal professionals have served us well in securing high yielding investments in the residential, commercial and overseas property markets.

Providing specially selected, fully packaged UK property investments sourced at below market value, our tried, tested and perfected buying criteria ensures strong capital appreciation and high rental yields for our clients.

Recognising the housing opportunities prevalent in the early nineties, Prosperity capitalised on the increasing availability of regulated tenancy properties that came available to the open market, as well as a relatively undiscovered buy-to-let market.

Keen to capitalise on investment opportunities on a global scale, Prosperity ventured further aeld, into the Greek islands of Cyprus and Kephalonia. Selling over 2,000 properties across specially selected sites, Prosperity’s foresight in capitalising on freshly emerging EU land resulted in a performance grossly outperforming the market, and securing high-prot returns for its investors.

Facilitating the rapid growth of client referrals from IFA firms and private clients across the UK, our business continued to grow. With a team of professionals managing over 400 residential properties with a combined value of £64 million for clients nationwide, Prosperity made the natural and timely progression into fund asset management.

Throughout the turbulent markets of recent years, Prosperity has maintained its position as one of the UK’s most reputable and successful investment specialists – indicative of a company armed with the knowledge, resource and foresight to recognise market shifts ahead of the game. Building on an international network of client referrals, our business has grown entirely on its own merit, leaving us to concentrate on our speciality – delivering sound property investments that meet entirely, our clients’ objectives.

Our methods of sourcing prime stock are based on rigorous criteria, ensuring the key measures are met- minimal costs for maximum return. Location, transport links, as well as rst rate commercial and educational facilities are just a few of the crucial requirements for all Prosperity acquisitions.

The Location
Peterborough, in the county of Cambridgeshire is now building a reputation as the city with the long term
sustainable growth capability. Located just 80 miles north of London and 40 miles from Cambridge,
it’s easily commutable by road and rail and currently an aordable hot spot for the rst time buyer.

The city is undergoing a fteen year £1 billion redevelopment which started in 2006. London Road is well served by both local and long distance rail services as Peterborough is a major stop on the East Coast Main Line, 45–50 minutes’ journey time from central London, with high-speed intercity services from King’s Cross at around a 20-minute frequency.

Situated o the London Road in Hempsted this modern, mixed use development is ideally located to attract the rapidly rising number of professionals, young couples, and students who are choosing Peterborough to live, work and study.

Peterborough has started to expand once more following its designation as part of the’London-Stanstead-Cambridge-Peterborough Growth Corridor’ as the benets from the one billion pounds of regeneration start to take effect.

Anglia Ruskin University is one of the largest universities in the East of England. ARU has its Royal Charter, being fully accredited by the British Accreditation Council.

ARU is currently rated as Internationally Excellent (3*) or World Leading (4*) showing a 35 position improvement over 2011.

With over 30,000 young academics living and working in the area the vibrant social and cultural scenes are growing at the same pace.

Peterborough’s excellent transport links and location makes it an attractive proposition for overseas students with ARU campuses in Cambridge and Chelmsford, University Centres in King’s Lynn, Peterborough and Harlow and collaborative partnerships with institutions in a variety of locations throughout the world, including London, Berlin, Budapest, Athens, Basel, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Trinidad.

Culture and Lifestyle
Peterborough is one of the UK’s fastest growing, greenest and most historic cities. It has an incredibly vibrant arts, culture and heritage community with levels of activity not typically found in communities of comparable size.

Described as one of England’s ‘most interesting places to live’,the cathedral city hosts a continual events and festival calendar.

Peterborough’s city centre oers the total shopping experience from top designer brands to independent retailers, high street favourites and the famous farmers market held once a week in the city centre.

Peterborough’s fantastic eateries, relaxing cafés and stylish restaurants mean there is always a huge choice where the cities culinary scene prides itself on the strengths of its independent restaurants which truly reect the city’s multiculturalism.

The Residential Market
Q1 2012 -Trying to cut through the mixed messages about the market is important. According to The Nationwide, whose report covers both lending valuations and land registry sales. House prices were up by
4.7% at the end of 2011 as a national average, but property transactions had slipped to their lowest level in two years.

The market is currently building a pent up demand for property due firstly to an undersupply of new property and secondly, want-to-be buyers unable to source funding for purchases.

The substantial shift towards private renting is increasing the importance of rental growth across the housing market.

The LSL Property Services Group reports that in June rental inflation had reached 4.4% across the UK and 6.9% in London. Increased demands on the private rented sector, from new and existing households, reect the changing nature of the housing cycle.

The big question is who will supply the stock to meet this demand? Figures from the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) show that the increase in the number of buy to let (BTL) mortgages is failing to keep pace with the demand for rented accommodation.

In 2011, over 108,000 new BTL mortgages were granted, but taking into account factors including remortgaging this only translated into 75,200 additional mortgages, down from a peak of 190,000 in 2007.
As accidental landlords eventually leave the sector, there is an opportunity for equity rich investors.

2013 / 2014
The need for banks to start lending again is important in numerous sectors and key within the property market. Lenders are already showing signs of competitiveness by the level of new mortgage products available. This cycle will look to continue as lenders compete for market share and therefore creating more aggressive rate offers.

It is expected that the more equity rich prime markets will lead the recovery in house prices. The earliest signicant growth will be fuelled both by the continued introduction of rst time buyers with
improved lending, alongside the pension provision sector of the investor market. Growth over the next ve years is expected to be much like the pattern witnessed in the mid to late 1990’s, where prices rose at a steady rate due to a progressive increase in overall housing demand.
