Why invest in BTL?

The buy to let market has changed significantly in recent years, but remains a solid long-term investment as long as you manage your risks and conduct thorough due diligence. The need for quality rental accommodation remains strong with demand continuing to outstrip supply across the country. This is due in part to a nationwide housing shortage, but the private rental sector is also proving to be a lifestyle choice for a significant amount of the population from young people through to retirees. Many appreciate the greater flexibility and freedom that renting provides along with the opportunity to live in locations that they might not otherwise be able to afford.
