Frequently Asked Questions

Why Invest In Buy To Let

Provided the property location is chosen wisely, buy to let represents a lucrative asset and bricks and mortar investment that provides regular returns and diversifies a healthy investment portfolio. As a highly flexible opportunity, buy-to-let investment can support those investors looking for yield, growth or a good balance of the two.

It is essential to choose your location wisely and invest in property in an area that will remain strong during periods of market downturn thanks to a strong supply-demand balance with a steady stream of desirable tenants from your target market.

Overall, UK buy-to-let property investment has been the strongest investment market for decades and has remained resilient despite the introduction of new, more stringent regulations. It continues to outperform other mainstream asset classes, and its appeal is boosted by the fact that interest rates remain historically low.

With buy to let, investors can also benefit from both short- and long-term income streams in the form of rental returns and capital appreciation, as the value of the property grows over time. As house prices in the UK’s property investment hotspots continue to rise year-on-year thanks to low supply and high demand, investors can expect strong capital appreciation to boost their rental income if and when the time comes to sell their property.


Off-plan property investment means investing in a property either before or during the construction process. Broadly speaking, the earlier you invest, the cheaper it will be. Off-plan properties offer the opportunity to invest at far below-market rates, often by as much as 20%. There is also the possibility of high capital growth that comes with investing in luxury property in a prime location before it hits competitive market prices. With many developments entirely sold out before completion and located in areas of low supply and high demand, it is often the only way for investors to access the most desirable properties in key areas. Many off-plan investments are also extremely flexible when it comes to the deposit where payments can often be split incrementally over weeks or months.

With this type of investment, it’s essential to consider any factors that may impact on the property value in the future, such as general investment into local infrastructure which will push up property prices. You also need to consider the build itself and which amenities, fittings and value-added features will be included as this is likely to generate higher, more consistent returns on completion. Investing in the right area and choosing a reputable, reliable developer with a strong track record are the best ways to guarantee the success of your investment – for expert support with off-plan investment, contact our specialist team today.
