How to Find Buy to Let Property Investments with High Yields

Buy to let property still offer investors the opportunity to build a portfolio consistently bearing high yields. What makes the market so attractive? Prices that are still below market value, continued low interest rates, and a fairly stable inventory. For new investors, the biggest challenge is finding the right properties.

A buy to let investment portfolio is based on the idea that the highest yields come over time. Unlike paper investments such as stocks and currencies, the property investor purchases investments with the idea of holding onto them for years, if not decades. With each passing year, the yield grows greater.

Sources of Property

There are quite a number of channels for finding buy to let property. One that you hear an awful lot of is the house auction. That said, Fruitful Property does not recommend the auction option as the main vehicle by which investors find properties.

Auctions are quick property sales designed solely to get unwanted properties off the books. These properties often come with limited documentation, certain legal difficulties, and many unknowns in terms of condition and potential. We believe the agent approach is a better method.

The agent approach utilises a company like Fruitful Property to search for potential investments with very specific criteria in mind. When you work with us, we only present you with buy to let property opportunities suited to your unique needs and circumstances.

Types of properties we research include, but are not limited to:

  • repossessed properties
  • distressed properties
  • renovation properties
  • quick sale properties.

Do Your Research

Fruitful Property invests a lot of time and money doing as much research for our clients as we can. Smart investors contribute by doing research on their own. The fact is, there can never be too much research. Maximising yields on your buy to let property starts with knowing everything you can about a given property before you purchase.

For example, it is important to know what the average rental rates are in the local area. Getting a good idea of rental rates helps investors come up with a more realistic purchase price. You do not want to purchase at a price higher than local rental rates can sustain.

Other things included in your research should be local real estate values, crime rates, public transport accessibility, and access to things like local schools, employers, and entertainment options. All of this research gives the investor a good picture of what he or she is purchasing.

Let Us Help You

One of the things our loyal clients can testify to is the fact that Fruitful Property knows how to find the right investments. Most of our clients have been so pleased they have purchased multiple properties through us. Now it's your turn.

If you are ready to purchase buy to let property as an investment, get in touch with Fruitful Property today. Let us help you build a portfolio with high yields; a portfolio that will continue to pay off for as long as you own your investment properties.
