Should investing in residential property be left to the experts?
In the current economic climate, homeowners are desperately struggling to make ends meet. Their biggest asset, their home, could help to alleviate these pressures. Home and property owners do not realise that the space they have can be put to good use by renting to students or professionals. Traditional investors may not see this as a real investing opportunity, but it certainly holds a lot of potential for a large number of consumers and should not be dismissed.
“While many working people do not have access to finance for big rent-to-buy investments, but smaller investments as an extension to their existing home is often within the reach of many. Also, when they come to sell, not only are the selling a family home – but they are selling a potential income stream for future owners.”
