High income yielding IOM property management businesses

HMO Business


  • Location
    Isle of Man
  • Sector
    Property Management
  • Relocatable
  • Asking price


The asking price for the businesses includes full freehold to two substantial IOM properties which are already converted and fully licensed as HMO's (consisting of over 30 existing licensed rooms). Freehold to an additional workshop and garage linked to one of the properties may be available by separate negotiation.

The opportunity

It is rare to find a HMO manager operating with all the appropriate IOM Government certifications in the Isle of Man and yet here we have two adjoining managed facilities for sale. By combining both these adjoining businesses together with some undertaking some subtle internal modifications to create one larger HMO manager any purchaser could easily increase the existing rental yields substantially.

General property condition

Both properties are in good order and both carry appropriate licensing and fire regulation sign offs. Recent renovations have been undertaken and both businesses operate to high standards and undertake regular maintenance programmes to ensure the rooms are always to acceptable standards.

Both these properties have been in family ownership for over 20 years and have received appropriate investment over the years.

Consistent returns 

Due to the ongoing shortage of affordable housing and long local authority waiting lists in the Isle of Man both businesses have been close to fully let for the duration of their 20 year plus operation generating excellent cash flow.

However retirement planning means that the owners now wish to look for offers from professional investors or existing HMO of facilities operators who are looking for a unique opportunity to continue these very profitable businesses.
