Investing in Roeselare from €174,900

A structural shortage of rental housing thanks to long-term growth.

The North Sea Port is a merger between the seaports of Ghent, Terneuzen and Flushing. On 1 January 2018, the merger agreement between these ports was signed. The North Sea Port stretches over 60 kilometres, 9,100 hectares and two countries: Belgium and the Netherlands.

The past few years have seen an incredible amount of investment around the North Sea Port. Besides many new jobs and employment opportunities, this also created a structural shortage of rental housing for the many new expats and workers. This represents a godsend to invest in!

Of North Sea Port's more than 9,000 hectares, it currently has about 1,000 hectares free for development. Not only will this allow the 550 existing companies to expand, but new ones can also set up there.

A completely new lock to drive growth.

With the arrival of the New Lock, larger seagoing vessels will be able to sail up to Ghent port thanks to the Ghent-Terneuzen Canal. It also increases the capacity of the locks, reducing waiting time for inland vessels.

The New Lock will provide better access and smoother flow from the Western Scheldt across Terneuzen to the Ghent Canal and beyond. As a result, the New Lock will create new economic activities in both the Zeeland Flanders region and the Flemish region. This will greatly benefit employment.

The big advantage: up to 50% more rental income.

Why do port operators pay more rent up to 50%?

Many companies view this rationally and logically. It pays them much more to hire an employee and provide them with accommodation than not to do so at all. Therefore, they are happy to pay a bit more. The cost of a factory not having to run or running at half speed is many times greater than higher rent and continuity.

Moreover, there is also little choice. Expats and workers don't buy property themselves if they will only stay locally for 2-3 years. Renting is often the only option, but as temporary workers, they often catch the eye on the private market. Companies are therefore forced to provide these properties themselves and are happy to pay a bit more for it. Consequently, as an investor, you enjoy up to 50% more rental income on your investment!

The added benefits of renting to businesses:

  • You don't need to look for tenants yourself.
  • You do not suffer from non-payment.
  • You don't have to be responsible for day-to-day maintenance yourself.
  • You have more control than with a private tenant.
  • You can index easily and professionally.
