One of the most popular property investment strategies involves straightforward buy-to-let, where you make your returns through rental income as well as capital appreciation on sale of the property.
Within this, you have HMOs (houses in multiple occupation), where you rent out a property by the room rather than as a single unit – this can generate higher yields but be more costly at the outset. Student property is also consistently in high demand, and commercial property, including hotel investments, is another option for investors.
It is important to consider all the pros and cons that come with each option, including additional costs, management fees, your expected returns and how much involvement you want to have in your investment. We can direct you to a number of guides and articles for a range of investment strategies, keeping you up to date with the latest market news and regulatory changes.
