The importance of choosing the right location
Location, location, location!
the importance of choosing the right location
There are a number of factors that should be taken into consideration before purchasing investment properties. Ultimately, the right property will hold a strong attraction for both owner-occupiers and tenants as the former maintain market values, whilst the latter covers the cost. To this end, the most important factor to be assessed will always be location.
Investment properties in the UK
A recent article by The Telegraph deals with the impact of improved transport links on the growth of the property market and associated investment returns. It predicts that the trend of increased buoyancy out-with the “golden centre” is set to continue as new rail links “open up” the outer edges of the city. Supporting this supposition is the announcement by two retail investment firms that they intend to build upon this accessibility with a £1.5 billion regeneration plan. This is an especially important fact to consider when investing in holiday residencies, which is something long since recognised by many property leasing companies such as Pierre & Vacances Property Investment.
Affordable property abroad
For the considered property investor, Europe also has a broad range of attractive options. By applying the importance of location to an overseas area high in environmental or tourism value, it is possible to expand a portfolio whilst seeing benefits that are more than financial. For example, the arrangements for buy-to-let properties can be made with personal usage in mind; in this way, a buy-to-let in the French Alps will not only offer return on investment, but will also provide the accommodation during a family ski break or solo getaway.
