Buy to let is back

Buy to let is back

The April fools day deadline imposed by the last chancellor put a real run on investment property purchases.  Since then, the perceived punative increased cost of stamp duty has meant that fewer buy to let properties have been bought by investors.  

Seven months on, market forces have meant the demand from quality tenants has not been matched by the available supply of quality properties.  This, whilst excellent news for landlords who we have achieved some remarkable results for recently, has created a void.

Markets, like water, find their own level, and as such, landlords are back in the market buying rental properties.  The events unfolding in Europe and the US have caused investors to turn once more to fundamentals.  Bricks and mortar are a tangible asset, they are also an emotive one, in that investors tend to only buy properties they like, rather than those which produce the highest yield.  This is, perhaps understandable, as it is difficult to feel love for a property purchase that you cannot imagine yourself living in.

Property produces both rental yield and captal growth.  They are an investment we understand, as an island with a long history of property ownership.  With record low costs of borrowing, a captive market of blue chip tenants and a shortage of lovely properties to rent, has there ever been a better time to get back into buy to let?

Winkworth Salisbury are a high quality property practise.  We achieve outstanding results for our landlords by carefully choosing the perfect tenants for their properties.  We market rental properties with the same style and flair as we do the houses and apartments we sell.  By doing so, and employing thirty years experience, we let our clients houses with the same close attention to detail as if they were our own homes.
