Two residential schemes by ethical developer Integritas Property Group (IPG) have sold out in less than three months.
The Liverpool-based developer said its Copper Box scheme, located in Crosby, and Vaux, at Naylor Street in Liverpool, have become a focal point for investors who are swiftly capitalising on buy-to-let opportunities in the off-plan and renovation investment market.
This trend is occurring amidst the backdrop of the UK’s buy-to-let market displaying remarkable durability despite prevailing economic challenges.

The strong price growth is expected to continue relative to the context of the wider UK property market, making the area well positioned to generate strong returns from investments in Liverpool’s property market, said IPG.
The wider North West region is also experiencing a period of growth, with average prices rising 7.2% over the past 12 months. This is being driven by factors including the economy, high employment rates and a high supply/demand imbalance.
IPG’s Copper Box development saw its 27 apartments sell out to the investor market in just two months.
Sold as a leasehold with a share of the freehold with an anticipated 6.5% anticipated NET rental yield, this investment will see a benefit from the £14bn already invested in Liverpool city centre. This comes ahead of the further £120m, which has been attained through the Local Finance For Growth Fund.
Vaux at Naylor Street also saw a record pre-reservation sell-out, with its 62 apartments being snapped up within 17 days. With rents expected to yield 7.5% and short
