Considering Buy to Let?
There are still good returns to be had in the buy to let marketplace, but it’s important to consider a few of the fundamentals before taking the plunge:
Establish a budget
The temptation to overstretch financially with an eye on larger returns is often a pitfall for first-time buy-to-letters. Seeking expert advice will help establish a level of property investment risk and commitment that suits your financial circumstances.
Choose your tenant types carefully
The type of tenants you attract to your property will in some part be dictated by your budget and the location of the property but it’s worth considering from the outset the type of tenant you want – for example, students, professionals, families. Deciding this early will help with decisions about furnishings, bills and the length of tenancy agreements.
Location, Location, Location
Firstly, treat your choice of location as a business decision rather than a personal preference. Is the area up-and-coming? Are there good schools, transport, amenities? Are housing prices rising, stable, falling? Is property selling quickly in the area? Researching the rental demand in the area you're planning to buy in, will also help make your final decision that much easier.
