These days, with low interest rates affecting our savings, more and more people are investing in ‘Buy to Let’ properties.
There are some good buys still to be had which can earn a good return for your money. The key to buying a good property to let is to ‘do your homework!’ Take advice from an experienced letting agent about location, property size and potential rental income.
You should buy in an area that will receive a good return on your investment if you decide later to sell the property.
As first time buyers still struggle to get a foot on the property ladder they turn to rental as another opportunity to ‘Fly the Nest’, as young people often still want to experience that sense of independence. Older couples are downsizing and deciding to sell up and move into rented accommodation, releasing funds to enjoy the ‘good life’ they have worked so hard over the years to achieve.
The rental market has never been so buoyant.
Here at Cathie Scott Properties we have invested in state-of-the-art equipment and customised software to ensure the best possible service for landlords and tenants.
