Property prices go up as well as down, so you might not get out what you put in. The same goes for how much rent we collect. Our forecasting tools help with the guesswork but they're not a reliable way to predict the future.

Tracey is Director of Daletech Electronics. She has commercial property investing experience but doesn't have the time to be a hand on property investor whilst running a company. She chose UOWN because she wanted to invest in property without the headaches.
Tracey: I’m Tracey Dawson. I’m the Managing Director of Daletech Electronics, a small electronics manufacturing company in Leeds.
UOWN: Why did you invest with UOWN?
Tracey: Actually, I was really interested in it because for me, investing in properties would cause me a problem in terms of tenants, looking after the property. So this was a great way of investing without having those responsibilities.
UOWN: Have you invested in anything before?
Tracey: We have done some property, commercial properties and obviously I’ve invested into pensions. But this was actually the first attempt at investing in other areas.
UOWN: How does UOWN compare to buy-to-let?
Tracey: This is so much more simple. I don’t have to worry about tenants. I don’t have to worry about maintenance, insurance. It’s all done for me. All I need to worry about is the income that’s being generated.
UOWN: How have the returns been with UOWN?
Tracey: Well, obviously I found them much better than other things, which is one of the major reasons that I invested. But it was really good being able to look on the website and actually see the returns and that made a lot of difference.
