Property still a concrete investment, surpassing shares and other forms of investment, as the demand in the buy-to-let (BTL) market continue to rise up.
Investment in property remains to be one of the highest yielding choice for most investors in the UK. Property regularly outshines other forms of investment, including but not limited to government bonds and shares.
Investors in the residential buy-to-let market have particularly seen significant returns of their investment funds. Recent data have shown that the average annual London BTL property yield, including the annual capital appreciation is around 4.6%. Since the year 2000, the total annual returns on these investments have been 10%.
The recent monetary policy changes have acted as a stimulant to the Buy-To-Let market. Also, the Bank of England cut interest rates to a new level of 0.25%, which acts as a disincentive to discourage people from doing cash savings, and inspire them to invest. This particular move, as well as the value of sterling dropping against other monetary system due to the post -Brexit economic concerns, meant that investing in property is progressively seen as a reasonable and practical long term option for many investors.
The property market is starting to show some signs of recovery from the initial post-Brexit concerns, and the need for buy-to-let property continues to grow extremely high. In truth, investing in property remains a solid option for long term investors, one which can supply them with excellent yields over time.
Since the number of expected renters looking in London is huge at this this time of year, particularly due to the normal influx of newly graduates into the city, and this demand shows no sign of slowing down; it is really is the perfect time to try and invest in the BTL market.
