Local Property Market

Derby has seen property prices underperforming over the past twenty years when compared with the rest of England and Wales, however, they are improving and it is felt that the significant regeneration schemes along with other recognition of its potential, e.g. its identification as a 'Top 25 European City of the Future' by fDi, will help the local property market to out-perform other areas.

As England's most central city, Derby is served by extensive transport networks connecting it directly to London, Newcastle, Sheffield and Cardiff, to name a few. Derby is also the home of significant employers, in particular leading transport manufacturers including Rolls Royce and Toyota.

This development is conveniently located close to the central business district and it is ideal for commuters. It is also a short walk to the Intu Shopping Centre (formerly Westfields), other excellent leisure facilities and some good local schools (not forgetting the University).

Capital Returns

We include a CrowdLords Risk Rating to illustrate where the investment lies on our Risk Return Profile.  Where risks are higher it is usual to expect a higher return and this is designed to aid quick comparisons only. It is our opinion only and should not be taken as a recommendation. You should judge the Risk for yourself using the information provided and your own investigations to form your own opinion.
We rate Risk across 5 parameters and grade them as being A, B, C, D or E. A being lower Risk. The five areas we grade are:

The Investment Period – the longer the period, the less the risk
Macro location and market – has the area performed well historically
Micro location – is the property in a good location for rental / sale
Level of Development – the degree of development and the cost / time risks
Track Record – the track record of the LandLord / Developer

We combine these into a weighted rating between A and E and show how the Risk / Return compares with what we would expect.
