There’s no doubt that changes to property tax and increasing regulation have reduced the allure of investing in the buy-to-let sector. However, those investors who have remained in the market are benefitting from the ongoing supply shortage, with rental homes letting faster than ever before.
The average time it took to let a property in Great Britain fell to 20 days during the first seven months of this year. This was three days quicker than the same time last year and the shortest time since our records began in January 2014.
A combination of increased demand from tenants and falling supply as landlords exited the sector, led to rental properties being snapped up quickly and every region recording a fall in the time it took to let a property.
If you are looking to let a property, the above research shows that you need to get moving quickly. Here are some fantastic lettings properties that we currently have on the market that might inspire your next move.
