Start quoteI recently completed on my apartment at Fabrick Square and it let straight away with a net yield  greater than 7% , which is better than I expected. The team were very honest and accommodating throughout the whole process so my experience was great, and I have since reserved a further two apartments in another development. I would recommend SevenCapital. End quote
