The best way to assess a potential buy-to-let property investment

Although property is currently the most popular investment vehicle, showing an impressive resurgence and admirable stability across all regional markets, actually choosing the best property for your needs can be a minefield. In order to calculate whether an investment property will suit your specific circumstances, it is important to assess three main aspects before entering into any transactional agreement.

Why an established development should always be considered

Although the success of a buy-to-let property in the residential market can be subject to a broad range of local economic and demographic changes, a buy-to-let holiday home, for example on the coast has a number of advantages as a stable place for capital. Indeed, firms like Pierre & Vacances Property Investment have built an impressive reputation focusing on just such a market. By offering guaranteed annual returns to their investors and excellent property management, a first-time rental real estate buyer can therefore be reassured that their capital is secure.

What to look for in an investment property

One of the most important assessments to make when considering an investment property is whether there is audience. If there is a solid enough base for lease, then the maintenance and upkeep costs should be calculated, and all should be considered in terms of margin returns and required return. In short, an investment must match a capital budget, be affordable to run and deliver a regular return that is appropriate for an investor’s needs.
