George Wimpey launches Property Investor Club

George Wimpey has launched a Property Investor Club in response to growing demand for investment properties.

It is open to professional investors and members of the public and will offer exclusive access to new developments before they are put on general release as well as help and guidance on building and managing a property portfolio and financial benefits and savings.

Membership is free as long as members buy two or more properties in their first year.

Kevin Belsham, sales and marketing director of George Wimpey UK, says: “With pensions in turmoil and a fluctuating stock market, property investment is once again considered the safe choice for professional investors and the public alike.

“Whether members are large institutions or landlords owning just a small number of properties, we want our property investment customers to have the added reassurance that they are making the right choices in managing their portfolios.“

Exchange bonds will be available on selected properties, and investors will be able to access guaranteed exclusive mortgage deals.

Members will be invited to attend regular property seminars to and there will be a free monthly e-newsletter.

Andrew Bowes, head of new build at HBOS, says: “Over the last decade, we have seen property becoming a mainstream investment choice for more and more individuals.

“Whether you’re buying property to boost your pension or simply want to try your hand at interior design, the George Wimpey Property Investor Club gives you access to direct benefits that are usually only available to large institutional investors.”
