It’s a fact that more and more landlords over the age of 50 are choosing to sell or scale down their portfolios. either to retire or to change investment strategy to a less ‘hands on’ option, and it’s easy to understand why.

The growth we’ve seen in property values over recent months has finally stalled and is unlikely to be repeated for another 7 years. That, coupled with rising inflation and the prospect of a capital gains overhaul in the not too distant future, all leads to one obvious conclusion: now is an excellent time to make the move to downsize your property portfolios and release equity before house prices begin to drop.

What is the best way to exit some or all of your portfolio? Who are the best people to help you scale down a property portfolio in a way that gets you the most money for your assets?

As the CEO of Landlord Sales Agency, and with over 20 years of experience being a private landlord myself, there are several ways to go about it to get you the biggest bang for your buck:

  • Save time and sell multiple properties at once to raise cash quickly with fewer legal costs
  • Sell properties individually for the best price per property
  • Sell properties with tenants in situ for the least disruption to your rental income
  • Provide tenant payment history with the legal pack to appeal to investor buyers
  • Offer a choice of vacant possession to appeal to private buyers
  • Work with tenants not around them to avoid disputes and potentially long delays
  • Secure offers before completion to ensure commitment to the sale ASAP
  • Know what taxes apply (or speak to someone who does)
  • Select an estate agent with appropriate experience and expert knowledge
  • Select an estate agent that is proactive throughout the sale until completion
