There are a number of reasons to consider letting your property instead of selling it. Depending on several factors, it can be a really smart move either as a short-term solution or a longer-term investment.
If you can’t sell your current property and want to move on, then renting can be a great solution.
Many people find themselves ‘Accidental Landlords’ – that is they find themselves with a property to rent not as part of a planned strategy, but by chance. This can present an opportunity to trial property investment, potentially make good returns and lead to starting up a portfolio.
Buy-to-let remains an attractive investment option for both professional and part-time landlords, offering a regular income stream, long-term capital growth and security.
