Gwendoline Lynes bought a home at August Park

Date: Monday 11 April 2011

"With such low interest rates it seemed silly to leave my money in the bank and so I decided that property is a sound long term investment. When I visited my daughter Anoushka, who is the owner of a local business – Coversure Insurance – in Andover, she told me about an advert she’d seen for a community event at Augusta Park. We thought it would be a good idea to go along and see the different options available. I wanted to invest in two properties to let and as soon as I saw the two bedroom coach houses at Augusta Park I knew they would be ideal.”

"Being a landlord for the first time was a bit daunting but I have been pleased with how straightforward things have been. The sales executives at Augusta Park have been excellent and my tenants are lovely – it’s wonderful that their baby is the first to be born here! I would recommend buying at Augusta Park to anyone. As an investor the homes are ideal as they are new, so there’s no need to worry about any maintenance, and they are in an excellent location close to a host of amenities and transport links. I am really pleased I decided to put my money into property over leaving it in the bank.”
