Money to money
Landlords are investing more in buy-to-let, as increasing confidence floods the market. The size of the average portfolio climbed to eight properties during 2012, up from seven at the start of the year. Twenty nine per cent of landlords say they have bought a property in the past year, compared to 25 per cent at the end of 2011. This is likely to be in no small part due to the problems first-time buyers are facing, forcing many to continue renting for longer.
