Ahead of the Trends Innovative and practical tools for today’s investors

Having witnessed the cyclical nature of the global property market, here at Knight Knox International, we understand the need to adapt in a world that is changing, and provide simple, innovative products and services to assist you in your search for the perfect property investment.

Online Resources Proud to be classed as innovators, in a market sector that often demands detailed and complex solutions, the company has long adopted a digital strategy to complement our UK-based sales team, allowing us to reach our customers, wherever they are in the world. By delivering fresh content on a daily basis through our social media pages, we are able to provide relevant and interesting investment news, allowing us to reach a global audience and communicate with investors on a much more informal and personal level. The provision and delivery of information are the most important aspects of any marketing strategy and the Knight Knox International corporate website compliments our other online resources perfectly. As the main marketing vehicle for the company, it is a complete ‘shopwindow’ of all that we have to offer, both in terms of the properties in our portfolio and the services we provide to investors. Testimonials, property news, event updates and details on our property re-sales service are just some of the areas of interest provided on the site. In addition to these resources we have an outstanding video library, complete with investment guides, our corporate video and videos of individual properties, which allow investors to see a visual representation of their investment, in this increasingly digital age.

Investment Guides The decision to purchase an investment property is not one that can be made lightly, which is why we have produced a range of printed and online investment guides, designed to provide in-depth information about specific investment options, in areas that we are highly experienced in. Whether you are interested in a particular country, or are wondering which UK buy-to-let options would work best for you, the Knight Knox range of guides provide a comprehensive overview, detailing the history of the market, explaining purchasing procedures and suggesting the best locations to buy in.


Exhibitions and Events As market leaders in the property industry, we believe it is essential that investors have the opportunity to talk to our experts on a one-to-one basis, which is why we regularly attend all the major international property exhibitions around the globe. Working closely with a select range of developers allows us to showcase a range of lifestyle and investment properties from our extensive portfolio of worldwide products, in addition to strengthening the Knight Knox brand on an international scale. From specialist seminars in Beirut, St. Petersburg and Stockholm, to major exhibitions in the UK, China, Hong Kong, Russia, the Middle East and Malaysia, we attend over 25 major property investment exhibitions and seminars annually, providing investors with the opportunity to meet with a member of the team face-toface, wherever their country of residence.

UK Property Investments Prime buy-to-let and boutique student accommodation projects across the UK

The UK property market is once again on the rise, with investors both foreign and domestic looking for buy-tolet opportunities across the country. Equipped with an extensive portfolio of products and the knowledge and experience of selling a wide range of investment options to buyers based in the UK and overseas, the Knight Knox team are experts in their field and best placed to advise you on the most appropriate investment(s) for your individual requirements.

So why invest in buy-to-let? There are two main types of investments sold through Knight Knox International, namely residential buy-tolet and private student accommodation. Although traditional buy-to-let properties are the preferred investment of choice for many portfolio buyers, due to the familiarity of the product, student property has surpassed all expectations and is now one of the UK’s leading property asset classes. The decision of which investment option to choose will come down to a number of factors, including price, location and manageability, all of which the Knight Knox team can help clarify for you, in addition to explaining the benefits and practicalities of each.

Residential buy-to-let The re-introduction of easily accessible mortgages, alongside the stabilisation of house prices, has led to a renewed interest by property investors into the buy-to-let market. Yields for rental properties, particularly in regional cities like Manchester and Leeds have been rising for the past couple of years and, with first-time buyers continuing to be priced out of the market, the private rented sector is increasingly looking like a profitable alternative to investment funds and pension plans, as a tangible asset that will always be in demand.

Student buy-to-let The re-introduction of easily accessible mortgages, alongside the stabilisation of house prices, has led to a renewed interest by property investors into the buy-to-let market. Yields for rental properties, particularly in regional cities like Manchester and Leeds have been rising for the past couple of years and, with first-time buyers continuing to be priced out of the market, the private rented sector is increasingly looking like a profitable alternative to investment funds and pension plans, as a tangible asset that will always be in demand. With the popularity of a British education showing no sign of diminishing and the number of non-domiciled students studying at UK higher education institutions predicted to rise to 7.6m by the year 2025, it is obvious that there is a serious shortfall between supply and demand.

Buy through the market leaders. . . Specialists at selling both purpose-built student accommodation and residential buy-to-let properties to the private investor market, the Knight Knox International team can offer a wealth of expert advice and guidance on both sectors. As the Master Sales & Marketing Agent for a select group of experienced UK developers, we are able to offer exclusive, competitively-priced developments which are backed-up by a diverse portfolio of previously sold-out and completed projects. Contact us today to discuss our extensive portfolio of buy-to-let investments.

Student rooms have been a great opportunity for me to get a foothold in the UK property market. I have bought 8 units so far, with a view to acquire more. I continue to look at offers from other property investment companies, but Knight Knox International seem to be the leaders in this section of the property market.

Overseas Property Investments Over 50 countries covered and every type of property available

Buying property overseas has always been a popular choice amongst investors, as people take advantage of the ‘generally’ nicer weather and way of life, of a culture different to their own. Here at Knight Knox International, we are proud to have sold property in over 50 countries around the world, putting us in an excellent position to advise and guide you on the best investment options and locations for you.

Why buy overseas? There are many reasons why people choose to invest in property in a foreign country and, whether you are looking for a long-term investment or holiday home, these general areas are a good starting point, to clarify why and where you should buy. Favourable exchange rates One of the main reasons that people decide to invest in a country other than their own is to take advantage of favourable exchange rates, in countries whose currency is weaker than their own. Potentially, there are excellent savings to be made, particularly if the economy of that country is on the rise.

What type of property should I buy? The type of property you purchase is entirely dependent on what you want to use the property for and which country you choose to buy in. Example 1 If you want a property that is entirely for investment purposes, then a tenanted condo in the USA would be ideal. We have a wide range of options available, the majority of which are let and managed by established rental companies ‘on the ground’, providing you with a completely hands-off investment. Example 2 If investment in a holiday home is more to your liking, then look at a sea-view villa in Turkey or beach-front apartment in Thailand. Both countries have strong rental markets and are two of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, meaning that you should have no issues renting the property out when it is not in use.

Better weather For many, the lure of owning property in a country which has year-round sunshine is the ultimate aim and, with global travel becoming easier and more affordable, the choice of locations is no longer limited to those countries close to home. Lower cost of living Traditionally, countries in the Mediterranean and Asia were viewed as having a lower cost of living and, as such, attracted a huge amount of investors seeking a rental property or holiday home. Whilst this is still the case in many countries, it is important to remember that our global economy is changing and it is important to thoroughly research the country you are seeking to invest in.

Studentpodshop The popularity of the student accommodation market in the UK has led to the rise of a new property sector, offering assured yields and high occupancy rates at prices much lower than a traditional buy-to-let. Designed purely for investors who either a) want to purchase a student accommodation unit or b) want to sell their existing student accommodation unit, the site acts in the same way as an estate agent; you can view lists of properties in a specific area, see photographs and individual specifications and gather information on the yields that are currently being generated for each pod. Tel: +44 (0)161 772 1390 Website: www.studentpodshop.com

Currency exchange Working with some of the best currency brokers in the UK allows us to pass on their favourable rates when transferring money overseas. It is surprising how currency rates can differ and our expert brokerage is likely to save you a considerable amount of money, compared with the high street banks.

Our Services A comprehensive range of services

Finance and mortgages

Legal and taxation

Working in the property industry, we know that it can be difficult to work out how to best finance your particular investment; which is why we have a number of options available for you to consider, including UK-based brokers that can advise on re-mortgages, in addition to overseas lending and mortgage companies, based in the country you are purchasing in.

Whether buying in the UK or overseas, the purchasing of property requires specialist assistance in regards to the legal and tax implications of your acquisition.

Larger funding requirements, such as development or land purchase, tax advice and off-shore banking are all topics we can either advise on in-house, or refer you to an appropriate partner company that will be able to assist you further.

Through our network of professional service providers, we can advise and guide you on any issues that may arise, ensuring your investments are hassle-free and uncomplicated.


Bespoke purchase and investment options We have an on-going selection of more individual property purchases and land investment options, such as self-build villas, land banking and larger investment deals such as development funding and joint ventures.
