We are always very pleased to hear from Sales and Letting Agents up and down the country about what they believe are the Buy to Let Property Hotspots in their area and why. This is the perfect opportunity for agents to share their local knowledge and experience with literally thousands of landlords who may never otherwise hear about them.  Details of how to get involved in this exciting addition to Property118 are towards the bottom of this article.

Having spoken to literally hundreds of landlords and letting agents it is quite clear that everybody has their own definition of Property Hotspots.

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder and just as we all have our different opinions on what makes the perfect partner in life, we also have equally different opinions on what Buy to Let Property Hotspots are and what makes the best investment for us. We have listed a few examples below:-

  • Student property– great if you understand the university lettings market
  • HMOs – high yield, some would say too much hassle
  • Flats – some would say low maintenance, others would say buy freehold and avoid ground rents and maintenance fees
  • LHA properties – again some would say high yield, some would say too much hassle
  • Refurbishment opportunities – great for those with a good team of contractors
  • Auction property – some real bargains here but only if you do good due diligence
  • Terraced properties – easy to sell on to first time buyers but can be high maintenance and high cost if you don’t have good DIY skills
  • New builds – some would say low maintenance, others would say low yield, why pay a premium
  • London – some would say low yield, others would say established market and better prospect for capital appreciation
  • Suburban bungalows – some would say good development potential and they attract mature tenants, others would say low yield
  • North, South, East or West? – whilst there are good reasons to buy locally, many landlords also like to invest in various parts of the country for all sorts of different reasons; cost, yield, capital growth prospects, diversification, spreading risk, trusting a particular agent to name but a few
  • and so the list goes on

I also think reputable estate agents will definitely give you all kinds of inside
information, such as local knowledge about the surrounding area and the
properties in the community. You can also take benefit from the expertise and
experience they have about the real estate market that requires a
special focus.
