Get to know our clients Christian and Eva Hain and their reasons for looking to Hull as an investment area. They recently came to Hull to view some opportunities and took some time to discuss their story with us.
Tell us about yourself where are you from and what do you do for a living?
I am a finance professional, originally from Germany but now based now in the UK since the mid-2000s and since 2011 in Buckinghamshire. I've had a keen interest in all elements of property investment for some time now.
What led you to Hull to invest in property and what types of property do you look for?
I got a tip from a friend to buy in Hull. That was back in 2009 just after the crash and there were some good deals to be had. I actually exited the market in Hull a few years ago but kept in contact with Ultralets and decided the time was right to step back into it there.
Do you invest in any areas other than Hull?
Yes, I invest in London, Germany, and Spain for various reasons. Places in Spain are holiday lets and the UK and German properties are more for buy to let purposes. All of these markets interest me greatly.
What do you think of the city of Hull in general?
Hull appears to me to be a city with great potential. Having observed Hull over the last 12 years and looking at the changes experienced during that period of time I do not think that I am too wrong about there. Also Hull is a tidy city compared to other parts of the UK and it appears to me they got some things right in their councils.
How did you find Ultralets and what do you think about their service?
I know Ultralets for the best part of 10 years. They are grounded and reliable and are going, like Hull, with the times. They are refreshingly young and contemporary and focused to offer a good solution for investors. Just what you need really when you need help with your property investments.
Thank you for taking the time to answer some questions Christian.
