Our History

Homes or Houses Limited was established in 2012 with the sole purpose of easing the process for expatriates and foreign nationals endeavouring to buy UK property.

Over the last six years Homes or Houses have assisted investors from around the globe in sourcing and purchasing over 400 properties in the North East of England. These properties have ranged from full refurbishments to brand new properties.

These properties remain under the full management of the property management team, until you decide you wish to exit your portfolio, which is when we manage a sale for you to an alternative investor or through the open market.

Throughout the sourcing and management, you can utilise a broad range of professional services which have evolved with our growth, so we can offer access to surveyors, solicitors, accountants, mortgage brokers, and specialist property trades, all of whom treat our clients with the highest professional respect.
