Investment property growth

With interest rates at a record low and the stock market as volatile as ever, many people with capital are looking for the best place to put their money.

Buying residential property to let has long been one of the safest and best performing investments, combining the benefits of a monthly income with capital appreciation over the long-term.

It appeals to many investors looking for a solid investment, which is not surprising when you consider that since the launch of buy-to-let mortgages 18 years ago, buy-to-let has provided average returns that easily outstrip those of other major asset classes.

For those thinking of buying a property to let, this is an ideal time to start the process. Rents iremain strong and yields of around 5% are still achievable if you buy the right property in the right location. This is very appealing compared with low interest on savings, particularly if you factor in the potential capital growth in the medium to long-term.
