Well that’s a bit of a tricky one you see due to the property market being the way it is. Due to the fact that people are selling and not as plenty of are purchasing, the prices start to plummet and it becomes a market for buyers – not for sellers. In turn, it is feasible to select properties up for well below what they are worth, which is every property investors dream.
And further more, everyone who has had to sell will still requires somewhere to live. As the sudden demand for rental properties goes up, and rent prices will most often follow. Plenty of property investors buy properties to let, which makes this the ideal opportunity for them. Since the sudden increase in demand for rental properties seems to have risen because of people not being able to pay their mortgages and they are having to going into rental properties. So if you look at it that was you will be able to charge a hell of a lot more for the monthly or weekly rent. Especially in London as prices there are double there compared to anywhere all over the country. Even BMV Properties there are still extremely high compared to the rest of the country.
So in answer to that question I would say now is a very good time to go into UK property investment. But just be careful because anything could happen with this market at the moment.
