At what price should you buy your buy-to-let property?

Been thinking of joining the property investment bandwagon, but concerned that strong house prices means the timing isn't right? Learn what effect rising prices has had on the buy-to-let market.

Several parts of the country have been performing particularly well recently in the buy-to-let market (see our previous article UK's Buy-to-let 'hotspots') and early indications from a UCB Home Loans report has revealed that the buy-to-let market has been growing, along with the level of mortgage lending.

This is partly due to the recent increase in house prices which, although good news for current landlords, might act as a deterrent for people looking to enter the market.

However, strong house prices should not deter wannabe property moguls from getting into the property market. Instead potential investors should be encouraged by the healthy state and continuing maturity of the market and look to invest in Buy-to-Let with confidence.

Potential investors should make sure they take a long-term view of between 5-10 years when calculating a return and rising rents will eventually compensate for the increase in house prices we are currently seeing.

Keith Astill, managing director of UCB Home Loans said "Over a certain period of time, if house prices go up, rent prices take a while to catch up but one compensates the other."

So the message is, if you are considering the Buy-to-Let market, don't be put off because of the strength of house prices, it is more important that you have a realistic idea of how long it is likely to take to see your return.

This is good news.

The trashier the means by which they sell these scams, the trashier they will be perceived, and so they will become. Soon, all respectable people will leave this stuff well alone, and the laws of economic gravity will return.

Thud.
