How Property Investment Specialists Can Work For You

How to Invest in Property?

There is no doubt that the buy to let market in the UK is booming. Over the past 18 years we have seen a rise in individuals looking at property investment due to the high returns and the capital growth that can be achieved.

As many people now consider property to be one of the safest and secure methods of investing, there has been an influx of first time investors entering the market seeking advice on how to start their buy to let journey and maximise their return on investment. Although some individuals who are looking to invest for the first time will have done their research and due diligence, such a large purchase can be daunting at times due to the many key factors to take into consideration.  

Property investment specialists, such as Sequre Property Investment, source exclusive, ready-made hands-off investment opportunities for investors and also offer help and advice along the way to make the purchase as stress free as possible. Many buy to let investors, particularly those exploring buy to let for the very first time, often aren’t aware that such a service exists or are familiar with situations where such a service can be utilised.  

Starting Out

For those unfamiliar with the property market, establishing what you want to achieve from a buy to let investment can be a challenge and there are many things to consider if you want your money to work hard for you. A reputable property investment company will talk you through the initial steps, help you to establish your objectives and present suitable properties based upon your requirements.  

Reasons for a buy to let purchase can vary:

-          Earn a higher interest than leaving cash sat in the bank

-          Generate additional income to enhance lifestyle

-          Build up income for a comfortable retirement

-          Invest to secure your children’s future

An experienced property investment consultant will guide you through the entire process from start to finish, and this will help give first time investors an idea of what to expect. They’ll also help the sales process along by liaising with solicitors, mortgage brokers and letting agents on a regular basis to ensure the sale progresses as smooth and as quickly as possible.

Building a Property Portfolio

After investing in one property, many successful investors look to purchasing several as a means of creating a portfolio in which to gain capital. This is an ideal way of sustaining an income and, when carried out correctly, can result in a multi-million pound buy to let empire. However, managing a large portfolio can be a full time job and when trying to source additional properties, time can often be limited.  

A property investment specialist can assist with some of the more overwhelming aspects of developing and growing a portfolio and will no doubt be up to speed with the current market conditions. They can even help you widen your property search and consider areas you may not have researched previously. An experienced property investment specialist like Sequre will be able to help you make the most out of your money and give you access to exclusive deals which often don’t appear on the open market and can be heavily discounted. As many landlords in this situation will often take a hands-off approach, an investment specialist will present properties that often come ready furnished and tenanted, making the overall process much quicker and easier for the investor.   

Help and Advice

One of the main benefits of using a property investment specialist means you will always have a professional on hand to assist and offer impartial advice throughout the process, offering an end-to-end service with one point of contact to speak to at any time should they have any questions.

It’s useful to maintain an open mind when it comes to property investment. Whether you’re a first time investor or own a multi-million pound portfolio, there may still be areas or different types of buy to let property you haven’t explored which could get you a much higher return on your investment.

As investment companies specialise in the day to day dealings that come with buy to let, they’re familiar to situations that will occur during the buying process. They will have the knowledge and experience to help and will happily be able to answer any questions that may not be common to the investor, but will have dealt with many times before. Overall, this makes the purchase process much easier for all involved and gives the investor peace of mind.

Although the idea of purchasing and managing properties alone can be tempting in order to save some money, the long term reality of it can be difficult to endure. For a small fee, a specialist investment agent will not only be able to source handpicked investment opportunities to present directly to investors, but will also provide a bespoke service along the way to ensure the investor is getting the best possible deal in order to maximise their capital income.
