Buy to Let is booming, but choosing the right property is key to investment success…
Buy to Let (BTL) is a popular investment choice, with many landlords viewing their portfolio as a future pension fund. But with so many rental properties currently on the market, how do you find the ones that will help achieve your investment goals? According to Dorian Gonsalves, CEO of Belvoir Lettings, the answer is simple. Don’t do it alone.
“So many properties are advertised as ‘great for BTL investors’ but this may not necessarily be true,” says Dorian. “A Belvoir Lettings agent can help new and experienced landlords to fully understand and determine rental potential, providing free specialist advice that will help them to source the best BTL properties and ultimately achieve their financial goals.
“Belvoir Lettings has over 150 offices nationwide and agents have extensive local knowledge. Belvoir agents will know where the rental hotspots are in the area, and these may not necessarily be in a locality that landlords would have previously considered. Belvoir can advise which properties may be better for capital growth, annual income, or both.
“With Belvoir’s help landlords can determine realistic rental evaluations and create a shortlist of potential properties. If required a Belvoir agent can view these properties with you or on your behalf.
“Buying an investment property is a huge decision in financial terms. You can minimise risk by seeking free specialist expert advice from a Belvoir agent who can help you to manage your portfolio.”
