Buy-to-let property is a great long-term investment because it allows you, the investor, to generate a return in two ways.
- Firstly, you’ll enjoy passive income from the rent that you charge for the property you own.
- Secondly, you’ll likely see the value of your property increase over the time you own it. If you come to sell the property in the future, you will profit from the balance of this capital appreciation
The UK property market has a 45-year history of strong performance with house prices rising considerably over that time. It’s a dependable and in-demand asset class that doesn’t suffer from the volatility of other global property markets.
As a buy-to-let landlord, the UK is also undergoing a boom in rental demand, meaning tenants are willing to pay good prices to rent your property.
The UK has a number of standout cities when it comes to economic credentials. Central London may not be the choice for savvy investors anymore, but its sprawling commuter belt offers fantastic value for those looking to build a property portfolio.
Cities like Liverpool, Birmingham and Manchester are racing ahead when it comes to attracting a young, talented workforce – and it is just that group of young professionals who are looking for premium rental properties.
