Where to start

Before you start looking for a buy-to-let investment, it is very important to pick the right location. Half the trick to buying a buy-to-let property is to make sure your chosen property can attract the appropriate type of tenant, which is down to the area just as much as the property itself. Once you’ve nailed this, you can start looking at putting bids in for ideal properties.

You’ve chosen the area, now it’s time to choose your buy-to-let property investment. There are a number of factors to consider:

How many bedrooms does the property have? A property with two or more bedrooms could make a brilliant HMO (house of multiple occupants) properties - meaning you could see your return on investment rise greatly.

Does the property need renovation? Lots of buy-to-let property investments only need a new lick of paint to get them ready for tenants to move in, but some need extra elbow grease before being put on the market. Take this into consideration when putting in offers on properties.

Research similar recently-sold properties in the area. You want to make sure you buy for the right price, and that’s not always easy. Researching what price other homes have gone for is a great way to get an accurate picture of what you should be paying. Want an instant ballpark figure?
