Why become a buy-to-let landlord?

Buy to Let investmentIt’s often said that buying a property is the biggest investment you will ever make. It’s also one of the most financially secure investments around, usually offering a lucrative return on investment, especially in these times of some economic uncertainty.

That’s why we have so many landlords on our books who have invested in buy-to-let property as a way of planning for a successful retirement or as a way of generating an income whilst their investment continues to accrue value. In fact, statistics show that the majority of landlords are aged over 51 as people look for ways to make any income generated from investments, pension funds, personal savings and inheritances to work harder for them. The Office for National Statistics also reports that buying a property is the most popular way to save for retirement in the UK.

So, whether you are thinking about investing in a buy-to-let property for the very first time or you already have a portfolio of rental properties, Andrew Granger & Co can help you maximise the investment potential of your rental property in Leicestershire, Market Harborough, Loughborough, the East Midlands and beyond.
