Can You Still Get into Buy to Let?

We get asked a great deal by potential property investors whether you can still get in to buy to let property investment in Sheffield.

After hearing lots of great stories regarding Buy to let investments over the last decade, we get asked a great deal by potential property investors whether you can still get in to buy to let property investment in Sheffield. 

thisismoney have recently answered this questions in a blog article, “Many long-term existing buy-to-let investors are sitting comfortably on low mortgage rates, having seen standard variable rates fall as base rate was slashed down to 0.5%. This is especially true for many as a lot of buy-to-let deals do not have typical SVRs but a revert rate that tracks the bank rate.”

“However, new buy-to-let mortgage deals largely remain more expensive than residential deals and require a big deposit. Despite a recent surge in demand, many industry experts acknowledge that now is a tough time to get into buy-to-let.”

“But with property prices having fallen to more affordable levels, those who stick to the tried and tested method of investing for rental returns rather than capital growth are tempted. You will need a big deposit though and should not expect instant riches.”

“If property investors are willing to accept that the value of their property may slide in the short term, and can ensure their property meets the criteria of at least 75% to 85% loan-to-value and returning 125% of monthly mortgage payments then it can be a good long-term investment.”
