Buy-to-let investments

Tenants have rights, so first and foremost, you’ll have to give them plenty of notice. If the tenants want to stay in the property, then it is possible to sell a Buy-to-Let property tenanted, but this means that the only market that would be interested in the property is landlords. But buying a Buy-to-Let property already tenanted is often perceived as a prime opportunity, with it cutting out the process of marketing the property and sourcing tenants.

However, if you’re selling a Buy-to-Let property empty, you’ll be able to target both landlords and the residential market. As well as widening the pool of prospective buyers, an empty Buy-to-Let property minimises any complications that come with viewings.

Buy A New Build To Sell On

People are attracted to new-builds for a variety of reasons. This includes:

  • There’s no chain so a move can be quicker
  • You can get discounts from certain developers
  • New-build home warranties offer peace of mind
  • Everything is brand new, and you can customise fixtures, fittings and even decor
  • Cheaper and greener to run
  • Help to Buy scheme covers new-builds
  • Top choice for to attract tenants
  • Less hassle for landlords with less repairs and maintenance

In a recent customer satisfaction survey by Home Builders’ Federation (HBF) and the National House Building Council (NHBC), nine out of ten new-build buyers said they would invest in one in the future. This shows an improving satisfaction rate, as people rated quality, design and layout as the top aspects of their new-builds.

Property Development

Residential property is an excellent starting-point for first-time developers: it draws on your own home-buying and renovation experience without calling for specialist market knowledge in commercial property, storage units, offices or student accommodation.
