First time investors and buy to let – is now the right time?

By Surrenden Invest | June 24, 2019

First time investors and buy to let – is now the right time?

Choosing the right moment to make an investment is an important part of enjoying financial success, whether you opt for stocks, houses or cryptocurrencies. Political factors such as Brexit can be strong influencers on people’s decision about when is the right time to invest. As such, the delay to the UK’s departure from the EU has given many investors breathing room to consider where they would like to invest in the UK’s buy to let sector, without feeling unduly rushed.

For first time investors in buy to let homes, having the time to take the process at their own pace is particularly important. Buy to let can be a profitable and satisfying way to make your money grow, but not every property investment is equal. As such, those who have never invested in residential accommodation before need to be certain that they have identified all of the considerations that they need to.
In support of this, Surrenden Invest has just released its Guide to Buy to Let Investments. The detailed guide acts as a ‘one stop shop’ for anyone interested in profiting from buy to let. It covers everything from buy to let basics, to investment best practices and financial considerations. The free guide also looks at the current state of the UK’s buy to let market and highlights regional hotspots that warrant particularly close attention.

“Buy to let is such an exciting opportunity and the Brexit delay opens up a window for many would-be investors to take their time in considering the UK market. As such, our new Guide to Buy to Let Investments shares the insights that we have gleaned over years of operating in this sector. It has been designed as a useful resource for first time buy to let investors, as well as those who are already familiar with buy to let property UK opportunities.”

There are plenty of factors pointing to the resilience of the UK housing market right now and a stable market makes a good starting point for those who are new to buy to let. The April 2019 Rightmove House Price Index highlights a 1.1% rise in new seller asking prices – the biggest such uplift since March 2018 and the highest spring moving season uplift since April 2016.
Northern cities, in particular, are commanding attention as a result of their buy to let opportunities. Hadrian’s Tower in Newcastle, The Tannery in Liverpool and Middlewood Plaza in Manchester together showcase the class and breadth of buy to let opportunities available across the dynamic buy to let market of the North.

“The northern cities are presenting some superb buy to let opportunities at present. For those who are considering dipping a toe in the water, our new Buy to Let Investment Guide is the perfect starting point. It not only covers the practical side of buy to let, but also takes a look at key urban markets and the fundamentals that make them such an exciting place to invest right now.”
