Local Property Market

Nottinghamshire, as a whole, has seen property prices slightly underperforming the national average over the past twenty years, however, the county has improved, comparatively, year-on-year and it is anticipated that this will continue.

Situated on the banks of the River Trent, Newark is a beautiful town centrally located only 1 hour 40 minutes from London by train, and serving as a perfect historic commuter town for nearby Nottingham City.

This development is only a 5 minute walk to the market square, across the road from Sherwood Avenue Park, and benefits from a very central location.

* The Risk Return Profile is a subjective assessment made by CrowdLords based on the information provided by the LandLord. Investors should make their own assessment of Risk & Reward before investing


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.
