When looking into investment property, it is extremely useful to be able to compare buying opportunities that are for sale, specifically by the gross annual return on the asking price: the yield. This in turn can be compared with the annual yields on offer from other forms of alternative investment, such as annuities and stocks.
This is our area of expertise at BUY2LET.com; our property portal is the only one available which is dedicated to the Buy to Let sector, allowing you to calculate the yield and use it as a search function, as well as search and sort using a range of other fields.
Whether you are searching for a house, flat or bungalow, we have a diverse selection of properties on display. Indeed, our site is especially designed for the use of estate agents and the sales departments of large scale landlords/developers; our great experience in the field of UK property investment ensures that we provide only the most pertinent information to those looking to find buy to let investments. Of course, investing in property is a complex matter with many pitfalls and we would urge buyers to make use of both the advice section on our site, as well as professional financial and property advisors.
Our enthusiasm for buy to let is shared by a large portion of the UK's population with one fifth of the nation’s housing stock being made up of privately rented dwellings. Buy to Let property investments in the UK are valued at over £1 trillion; owner occupation is decreasing and renting is now very much a life style choice.
The demand for residential property investments leads to the sector growing by more than £45 billion each year; such an investment is already considered to be a low risk alternative to simply using savings accounts or investing in shares, especially when capital growth is considered as an additional bonus.
We have divided the buy to let property displayed on this site into three distinct categories, all with annual yield calculated ; ‘instants’ can be considered to be an immediate income generating asset, with tenants already in place. ‘Potentials’ are just that; properties that currently lack tenants, and therefore are still only potential income generating assets. ‘HMO’ stands for Houses with Multiple Occupancy; and are generally properties with more than 4 bedrooms; a more attractive proposition for some investors.
Now is a great time to expand your portfolio of UK buy to let investments, or take the first step to building a portfolio; so take a look at the investment properties that our members have available today.
