Successful Property Investor warns UK rental market is target for foreign investors

This phenomenon was recently commented on by successful property investor, mentor and professional speaker Dr Rohan Weerasinghe who regularly speaks at UK Property Networking Events.

As a result most investors are more interested in acquiring an income from renting properties, as a way of providing “long-term security”.

Many investors are keen to purchase run-down properties with a view to renovating them and selling them back to the market to create cash profit which can then be used to buy further rental investments. This pattern is particularly popular with Italian and German property investors and can be a very lucrative method of producing a positive monthly cash flow.
