The buy-to-let market has generated a 175% return over the last 10 years, equating to a profit of £138,936. In contrast, gold has provided a profit of £50,673, interest on savings accounts amounted to £14,447 and a £50,000 investment in the FTSE 100 has yielded just £2,969 over the same time period.

 

Some people are put off property investment due to the time-consuming and hands-on nature of property, however Let Leeds takes the hassle out of property management, allowing you to reap the rewards.

 

Whilst gold, stocks, shares and savings offer greater liquidity than property, which can take several months to buy or sell, this does not deter shrewd Investors who value the dual benefits of an immediate monthly rental income and capital appreciation over time.

 

Investing in property is the safest investment over the long term. We have seen historically that house prices always rise in the long run. With the severe shortage of housing across the UK, this is likely to continue. Property investments can be secured by utilising rent guarantee schemes which is another reason why property is the most lucrative investment.

 

Let Leeds has a broad range of investment opportunities and offers an exceptional property management service. To find out more click here or call our dedicated Sales Team on 0113 322 2000.
