Property Investors Should choose Investment Properties Wisely

Property Investors Should choose Investment Properties Wisely

Property Investors Warned To Choose Potential
Property Purchases Wisely

Savvy property investors know that profit is made when buying property, not when it is sold, as equity can be locked in upon purchasing below market value, giving the property investor greater control of the purchase price by negotiating a deal with the seller, (vendor), rather than what the property eventually sells for on the open market.

Property investors are different from ordinary residential property buyers, as they are of the mindset that the property should meet all the financial requirements of a landlord first & foremost, rather than paying the high end retail price for a property just because it looks nice.

Many new and amateur property investors make the common mistake of falling in love with a property and begin to let their heart rule their head, becoming so emotionally involved that they lose control of their finances and let their emotions win, overspending massively and reducing any potential yield.

UK Buy-To-Let Property Returns Better Than Fixed Rate ISA’s

UK Buy-To-Let Property Returns Better Than Fixed Rate ISA’s

UK Property Investment Offers Better Returns Than Fixed Rate ISA’s

UK investors are putting even more of their money into property investments rather than saving using an ISA because the returns can be far better.

UK property values have increased 11% year on year despite the property crash in 2008, however, the best fixed rate ISA offered by UK banks only offers savers an annual return equal to 1.85%.

The rise in UK property prices has caught the attention of diverse investors who would usually opt for different types of investment products to give them good  returns on their investment funds.

Property investment in the UK’s private rented sector allows investors to build profitable rental portfolios that produce better yields than other types of investment funds, including ISA’s.

Dutch Property Market Avoided By Property Buyers

Dutch Property Market Avoided By Property Buyers

Property investors are avoiding buying property in the Netherlands because they fear the property market is yet to hit rock bottom

The Netherlands are the only country in Europe that is still creating its own new land, however, property prices in the Netherlands are continuing to fall alarmingly, putting off purchasers and investors alike.

Property prices of residential properties in Holland are at the same level as they were 10 years earlier, and are still falling, reflecting the stagnant housing market in the country.

According to a joint publication by Statistics Netherlands and the Land Registry Office, prices of existing owner-occupied residential properties in The Netherlands were on average 7.6% lower in April 2013 than they were in April 2012 and 19.5% down from the peak of the global property market of August 2008.

Residential property prices are falling as a consequence of ultra low demand from property buyers.

Official figures reveal that only a total of 29,644 residential property sales were registered in the country during the first four months of 2013, compared to the same period last year.

The Financieele Dagblad reported recently that Dutch banks’ housing market specialists would no longer be making predictions over the decline in residential property prices.

Last year, the banks predicted a further fall in Dutch property prices in 2013 between 7% and 10%.

There really could not be a better time to invest in UK property, and London is a favourite spot for Buy To Let Landlords.

Property investors looking for Buy-To-Let investment opportunities may have the chance to bag a property bargain after average residential property asking price fell by more than £7,000 (GBP) last month. That’s the biggest fall in monetary terms for almost 4 years.

The average asking price for a residential property in England and Wales in November is now £232,144, down 3.1% compared with October, according to the latest survey by property website Rightmove.

The number of new property instructions on the market also fell back to levels last seen during the 2008 collapse of American investment bank Lehman Brothers, which sent the global economy into recession.

Even London could not buck the trend in dipping valuations as all regions in England and Wales were hit by monthly property price falls for the first time in over 3 years.

Although London is still the prime location for buy-to-let investors, as rental rates rose faster in the UK’s capital city than in any other UK region over the past 12 months.

Amid a flagging market, London’s annual increase in rental rates remains significantly higher than other parts of England and Wales.

Rental rates in London increased by 5.7% in October, compared to a 4.6% rise in the West Midlands, and a 4.4% rise in the South East.

Rental yields also rose in the capital, increasing to 5% last month from 4.9% in October 2010

However, the rate at which rental rates are rising has slowed, and the annual increase to 5.7% in October does represent a fall from 5.8% in the previous month. But rents have now risen for 9 months in a row and already stand at a new record high, while the average yield remained steady at 5.3%.

When these figures are combined, buy-to-let landlords with rental property in the UK’s capital city are very happy investors.

For the rest of the UK, the average property asking price in November 2011 fell by £7,528 compared with October 2011, the biggest monthly drop in financial terms since December 2007, although this is still 1.2% higher than November 2010
