Be prepared to wait it out

Chances are property prices over time, will increase. Property now, is a lot more expensive than it was 20 years ago (See our previous blogs for advice on how to get a foot on the ladder in these tougher times) so the likelihood is that 20 from now it will have increased in value! So be prepared to wait for your return.

Find the right property

By making improvements to your buy to let property you make it more desirable but make sure you shop around for the best deal but don’t take away from quality!

Insure yourself

Similarly this goes for any property you purchase, insure it as much as you can but, in the case of buy to let, also insure yourself against tenants so, take out insurance that is made for rental property and insure yourself against unpaid rent – there are companies out there that will cover the unpaid rent until the tenant is out.

Be thorough

Make sure you get proper references for your tenants and go through the correct checks for any potential tenants that way you are less likely to get stung further down the line.
