My first impression of IPIN was being struck by the courtesy and understanding of the IPIN staff. Something which I thought was reminiscent of a bygone era. IPIN were very professional in the management of my investment.

When I first read about the Secure Exit Strategy, I thought the 25% return too good to be true, but IPIN have proved me wrong, as, I invested in The Flaxby Secure Exit Strategy in October 2009 and exited in June 2010, 9 months later with a whopping 48% return.

People at IPIN are not pushy, they are friendly, patient, helpful and easy to reach during and after business hours, when it suits me best. This is what I expect from an advisor. I am planning to further expand my portfolio based on the results achieved by the IPIN team.

As we approach retirement conservative and secure investment programs are the only ones we considered. The IPIN SES program fits our investment goals perfectly and has performed as advertised. Who can argue with a 26% annualised return in the current economic environment?

There were two main aspects that attracted us to this investment; the strength of the commercial proposition itself (the product was eminently marketable) and the extensive security provided by the escrow and other associated legal arrangements.

After almost two years of working with IPIN, I am convinced this is one of the best wealth-building investment vehicles available.

Docklands is the second successful SES unit I've bought-into. For me, this still represents the best thing I can do with my money - not only is it secure, but the returns are guaranteed too. Another thing I really like is how the projects to which IPIN apply the SES always seem to be really sound - they're not just good SES investments, they always have a lot going for them as traditional investments.

Mr. M. Green
IPIN member and investor

I invested in the Secure Exit Strategy (SES) as an addition to my existing property portfolio. I was very surprised when told that I had been exited within just over 6 months.  I was extremely happy with the returns I made and decided to reinvest those returns with IPIN.

Mr Robert D
IPIN member and investor

As the first of my investments with IPIN, I was keen to see an early result on one of my units even though I understood I should be prepared for the maximum 36 month term.  I was delighted when I received a call to tell me that the first of my units had exited in less than 3 months.

Mr J Donald
IPIN member and investor

I invested on September 21st 2009 after some searching questions. I have been kept informed of progress over the whole period and on February 25th 2010 my unit was sold.  The strategy has worked extremely well for me and I elected to reinvest into another SES venture using 1,013 GBP of the return plus the original investment.

A few years ago we couldn't have written an article like this, back then a mixed use development was simply flats above a shop. Nowadays mixed use development has taken on a whole new meaning; well actually it has lost all meaning, because it can mean pretty much anything: mixed retail and leisure, retail, office and leisure, office and leisure, office and retail, office and student accommodation, leisure and student accommodation or any mix of the above.

There are mixed use developments in tower blocks and huge single buildings, like the newly proposed Lewis's Building, which is a 420,000 sq ft, 9 storey building near Liverpool's Central Station. The scheme will consist of mixed leisure and retail use and a link through to Central Station, Liverpool. Developments like this make for excellent commercial property investment opportunities, because space is very limited in city centre locations.

But there are also developments of multiple buildings across many acres, like the new $3.5 billion 20 acre development on the site of Chicago's historic old post office on the banks of the Chicago River. The development, by International Property Developers Inc will feature the tallest tower in the US at 2000 feet and consist of the following:

  • 6.2 million square feet of entertainment space, including retail and restaurants
  • 4.1 million square feet of hotel space in 7,500 rooms
  • 3.8 million square feet of residential space
  • 2 million square feet of office space
  • 12,000 parking spaces, free for shoppers
  • 20 acre rooftop garden and park
  • Commitment to state-of-the-art green building standards
  • River walks along the east and west banks of the Chicago River

For someone considering investing in commercial property, developments like this offer a whole host of opportunities. Interested parties should seek commercial property investment advice in order to make the right investment for them and/or to maximise the returns.

There are also many resort developments which are mixed use developments because they build spaces for shops, bars, restaurants and amenities within the resort, which then go out to big franchises like McDonalds etc. Depending on the location these units can make for excellent commercial investment property, low competition, high yields.

Mixed use developments are becoming more and more popular as developers spot opportunities to buy huge buildings at massively reduced prices, and to benefit from government money in that redeveloping these buildings is to regenerate a huge part of city-centres etc. Mixed use developments are also a low risk opportunity, which makes them attractive to commercial property investment funds.

Commercial property investments UK are growing at the moment and a dream partnership is mixed-use developments offering student accommodation and amenities that students need. These make it easier to calculate commercial property investment yields. Meanwhile the student occupancy is often guaranteed as part of mainstream accommodation for one or more universities, making for an easy to calculate yield on that side as well.
