How to weigh the pros and cons
How to weigh the pros and cons of buy-to-let investment opportunities
When presented with a range of options for capital investment, it can be a daunting task to filter out those which might not be as beneficial. In order to ensure peace of mind and provide a template for consideration, the best way to consider the pros and cons of any buy-to-let investment opportunity is to make a list.
Making sure of the margins
The basic measure of any investment success is regular return. Whether that return is calculated in weekly, monthly or annual increment, any margins achieved must take into account any running costs – so any investment opportunity should be weighed with the overall outgoings for the defined period applied to any potential incomings. Companies such as Pierre & Vacances Property Investment understand this need, offering a guaranteed annual return and hassle-free management services that allow an investor’s calculation to be a simple one.
Assessing the benefits
Should the margins on two properties be identical, and the level of capital investment the same, an investor would be wise to consider the long-term benefits of one property in comparison to the other. For example, are there building works or other local economic investments planned? If so, a little research into the future ramifications – both positive and negative - might make all the difference to any investment decision.
