Strange as it may seem, property is still one of the best forms of investment, despite the global problems we’ve endured this last year. It’s never going to offer quick returs. You can’t buy a place one month and make the killing next month by selling on without touching the ground. The stages of conveyancing involved with fees clocking up on each dictates holding on to the property. In the intervening period, if it’s not the principal residence, then regular maintenance carried out and a good rental agent keeping on top of tenants will ensure maximum rental income is possible. As with every investment venture, research is needed into best areas for buying into the rental sector. Also if a property needs updating and refub before releasing to let, keeping to a sensible budget but not skimping or cutting corners also attracts a better and generally longer term tenant. Ensuring it’s kept in tip top condition will definitely produce more than adequate rewards further down the line.
