Rents falling in some cities

Buy-to-let sector feels pinch of oversupply

Rents are tumbling on some city centre flats as buy-to-let investors pay the price for oversupply. The news will make uncomfortable reading for investors who bought into the boom in development of buy-to-let flats in these city centres, only to find that capital values and now rental income are falling.

One thought on “Rents falling in some cities

  • Not sure who these “others” are ? I suspect Daniel Thomas has been watching too many old episodes of Lost recently

    “… stark contrast to the fortunes of others, who have seen rental income grow as they cash in on the
    plight of first-time buyers unable to secure a mortgage.”

    I suggest an edit to “.. first-time buyers not strupid enough to secure a mortgage”.
