Rental income soaring as HMOs become the preferred asset classMake Text Bigger
Rental income soaring as HMOs become the preferred asset class for investors, landlords, and with supply and affordability more important than ever, tenants too.
In September 2016, Shawbrook Bank claimed that the Houses of Multiple Occupancy (HMO) market was set to see immediate substantial investment and growth, based on primary research identifying that 53% of property investors had HMOs in their sights.
Today, a record number of buy-to-let owners are now looking to convert their properties to HMOs, in order to increase rental income as tax increases take their toll, Roma Finance reports.
Shawbrook stated that 72% of investors cited a significantly higher yield as the main attraction, followed by the potential for capital growth. Recent research also identifies a much greater opportunity to rent more rooms in more cities with higher populations of students and young professionals.
Investors are now looking at high-specification HMO developments to maximise returns from rental income, taking a huge leap from the yield usually earned from regular buy-to-let investments.
