Long term investments can still work, says buy-to-let industry

Long term investments can still work, says buy-to-let industry

Despite some negative suggestions about the future of buy-to-let, investors can still make it work well for them, firms involved in the sector have said.

Rating agency Standard & Poor has claimed that falling property prices may leave up to four out of ten investors facing negative equity.

However, representatives of the industry involved in the Landlord and Buy-to-Let Show at the NEC in Birmingham earlier this month said the current situation is much more promising than that.

A consensus emerged that those investors who carry out a lot of research on their properties and potential tenants will be able to make a big success of a long-term investment in the present market.

Many of those who could be affected heavily by lower house prices are those who bought properties when the market was at its peak, while those buying now or in the near future could be doing so at or near the bottom of the market.
