A MORE AFFORDABLE HOUSING OPTION COMING TO CLACTON BEACHFRONT

A plot on Nelson Road near Clacton’s seafront is being developed into 9 townhouses. The £2.5 million development in the local area will bring a more affordable option for families, in a desirable spot.

The developers from Sourced have recently started on the build after gaining planning permission from Tendring council to build the properties.

Sourced Capital has previously raised £1,103,000 to buy the plot and start the build of the first 6 terraced 3 bed townhouses. We are now looking to raise phase 2 of the monies (£660,900) to build the remaining 3 properties through our online Peer to Peer Platform.

Working closely with local estate agents the scheme has been designed to help the demand for starter homes, with the help of the government’s help to buy scheme in the works too.

Local estate agent Jordan Blanche-Price from Scott Sheen & Partners is confident in the scheme, “There’s always something going on in Clacton, it’s a lovely place to live. There is no room for any other new builds on the seafront, so there is no competition in the area for this type of property. The townhouses are going to be attractive to a lot of people.”

The build is forecasted by the contractor to take 14 months to complete the full works of all 9 homes.

Dan Lane from Lane homes construction is leading the build on the project said “I was born and bred in the local area and I am very excited to be a part of the project. There is nothing like it in the area, there are mainly flats or large detached houses. What is good about these properties is that it brings more affordable homes within the area for families.”

Given the location of the property and the local demand, the developers, Jas Malhi and Charnjit Singh have already marketed the homes off-plan for local residents to purchase, and despite COVID-19, there has been plenty of interest, with even one of the homes being reserved. According to Propertydata.co.uk, the Clacton area has seen an increase in housing prices over the last 5 years, totalling an average capital growth of 22%.

Jas, Sourced Developer said: “Peer-to-peer lending has been growing in popularity over the past five years because there’s been a distinct shift in power as investors realise they can enjoy the returns typically enjoyed by the banks and conclude deals more quickly by calling on a network of their peers. If any local residents would like to invest in a project that is close to home, this is the perfect opportunity. We’re happy to show any investors around the site (once lockdown has lifted of course), so that they can see what their money is helping to achieve. It is important for us to ensure this project is in keeping with the quiet residential road and the Clacton area, yet bringing affordable homes to the community.”

Project Complete: McCrorie Place, Kilbarchan

At Sourced Capital, we’ve been working hard over the past couple of months. We’ve had a number of new projects launch on our platform throughout these truly testing times. In this blog , we’ll be taking a look at one of our projects, McCrorie Place, and providing you with an update of the key details that you need to know.

The McCrorie Place project launched in September 2019. The borrowers were looking for a raise of £182,000 for the conversion of this property. The plan was to flip the property once renovated. There was some work that needed to be completed on the property, as there was visible water damage throughout.

Situated in the heart of Kilbarchan, the property was a 4-bedroom detached house spread over two floors, which included a lounge, kitchen, dining room, bathroom, and 4 bedrooms.

The local area had seen strong capital growth with healthy valuations on 4-bed properties. Once the property had been refurbished, it would become a perfect family home due to its size.

After Sourced Capital had reviewed this project, we knew that it was the perfect addition to our platform. Listed in September for investment with a return for investors of 11%, the investment of £182,000 was funded quickly. With demand in the local area for this type of property, investors flocked to invest in this project.

After months of hard work, Sourced Capital is pleased to announce that all investments into the McCrorie Place project have now been repaid in full, along with an average interest of 11.3%.

Sourced Capital has repaid £202,566 to investors, after a total of £182,200 was raised, a healthy return for investors in such a short period of time.

New Project: Nelson Road, Clacton-on-Sea

But what’s next for Sourced Capital? Well, we’ve had a number of projects launch on our platform recently, one of which is our current project based on Nelson Road, Clacton-on-Sea.

This is an exciting opportunity to invest in a new build development. The plot of land will be purchased with planning permission in place for the build of 6 properties in a quiet residential area based on Nelson Road in Clacton-on-Sea.

The borrowers are looking to raise £1,103,000 for the purchase and build of 6 new, 3 bed townhouses. To coincide with the raise, the borrowers will also be contributing £337,250 of their own cash towards the purchase price of £504,000.

Investors of this project, get a first legal charge on the site. There is additional land, next to this plot, which the borrowers are allowing investors to also have the first legal charge on also.

The exit plan for this project is to sell the properties, within a 14 month period, generating an estimated profit margin of 39%.

The area of Clacton-on-Sea is the largest town on the Essex Sunshine Coast. People frequently relocate there from London, as well as from many other parts of the UK, due to its coastal setting. Clacton-on-Sea is also popular among day-trippers due to the fact that it’s only an hour away from London.

The plot of land on Nelson Road is just a short walk from the Town Centre. Local amenities and a train station are a short 5-minute drive or a 15-minute walk. Clacton’s clean beaches are at the end of Nelson Road and it’s just a few minutes’ walk to the local hospital.

Clacton-on-Sea has seen a steady incline in housing prices over the past 5 years, totaling an average capital growth of 8%.
