Landlords are increasingly investing in property because of the rental yields, but also because of the capital appreciation that property gives as an investment. Here are 4 things to look out for when thinking about investing in property:

  • Having access to top schools in the catchment will always mean that a property will demand a premium and hold its value in the medium to long-term.
  • One of their biggest considerations is “how close to public transport will I be?” Buying a property near a tube, rail, or bus, the station also means that there will high demand from rental investors should you choose to sell with easy access to transport.
  • Look for properties that are within a commutable distance from the largest areas of employment. On average most people will want a commute that is under 45 minutes, ideally under 30, so worth working out the best routes to the centre of town is really important, before investing in a property.
  • Avoid areas where there is a large influx of new buildings. Large buildings going up very quickly can add a huge amount to supply (of very similar properties) in an area which can suppress prices.
