UK buy-to-let property investment has been the strongest and most reliable investment market for many years, and the future continues to look bright for the sector. The financial landscape has changed considerably over the last few years, but the appeal and benefits of buy-to-let investment remain both unchanged and significant. The UK property market has remained buoyant, and 'bricks and mortar' will continue to provide a profitable investment in the future.
Property is one of the only asset classes to offer two different returns on investment.
Consistent rental returns provided every month to the landlord during the time a tenant is residing in the property.
House prices have been consistently rising year-on-year in the UK, meaning that investors can also expect reasonable capital appreciation on top of their rental income when the time comes to sell their property.
Landlords benefit from rental income to the short- to medium-term, while capital appreciation is more a long-term profit generator - both of which ensures the investment is a safe one.
For years the UK housing market has recorded year-on-year growth in terms of house prices, fuelled by a chronic under supply of available homes. Therefore, experts predict that the upward trajectory of house prices will continue as long as the supply/demand imbalance across the UK continues to dominate both the homeownership and rental markets.
