Top 10 reasons to invest at Aura:
“Cambridge will always have a strong demand for high quality new homes and it is unlikely that supply will keep pace with this demand. These factors stack in favour of the buy-to-let investor, who can expect strong rental yields coupled with positive capital growth prospects.”
