It’s official – we’re celebrating our 15th birthday! December marks 15 years since Experience Invest was founded in 2004.
But that’s not all… To celebrate this monumentous milestone (if we do say so ourselves), we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve sold over 10,000 UK properties since our launch!
These two achievements offer the perfect opportunity to reflect on our 15 years of experience in the property space. And what a journey it’s been – in this time, we’ve made our mark on a wide range of markets, selling buy-to-let, purpose-built student accommodation (PSBA) and hotel investments to investors from more than 70 countries around the world.
Working alongside established developers and the construction arm of our own business, Opto Property Group, we’ve helped shape and fund real estate projects in cities spanning Newcastle, Liverpool, Leeds, Luton, Manchester and Bournemouth, with a PBSA project starting in Cardiff next year.
We’re also proud to have weathered the storm of four (going on five) General Elections, the global financial crisis and the fallout from the EU referendum. Despite widespread speculations that these events would demoralise the UK property industry, we’ve instead seen first-hand the continued demand for property investment. What’s more, we’ve witnessesed the impressive resilience of the overall real estate market in the face of significant political and economic turbulence.
Making our mark on PBSA
One sector we’ve been particularly successful in is PBSA. In fact, we were one of the first companies to adopt the PBSA investment model back in 2009, and we’re extremely proud of our role in the evolution of this market.
Over the past decade, we have worked with local councils and construction firms in Newcastle, Luton, Liverpool, and most recently Cardiff, not only to meet bludgeoning demand for quality student accommodation, but to ensure that all of our developments effectively meet the expectations of the modern student. That’s why all of our PBSAs boast unrivalled design and premium on-site facilities.
If this wasn’t enough, Experience Invest is also excited to be expanding into new territories. In addition to the 25 employees currently working in our London office, and our sales team in a separate Hong Kong office, in the New Year Experience Invest will be establishing a new office in South Africa.
This new space will be headed up by one of our current senior managers, Dale Anderson. This marks yet another exciting step in our ongoing journey and we’re looking forward to bringing you new updates very shortly!
