Our site is packed with free property investment advice, information, insights, ideas and support for people interested in making money from investment property. Plus the latest property news and special reports on property hotspots.
Many people have become disillusioned with traditional pension plans based on stock market investment returns, and have turned to 'buy-to-let' property investment as a future pension fund.
If you're new to property investing, and want some buy to let advice, look at our questions & answers section to get you started.
Whether you are interested in capital growth or rental income, you need to decide the most profitable geographical areas and property types for your property investment portfolio. To help you do this, we give:
- a detailed analysis of the demographic, socio-economic and financial trends that affect property prices, capital value increases and rental demand
- a survey of current UK property hotspots and development areas (re-generating areas and communications/infra-structure developments), with particular emphasis on the UK.
- tips on finding areas for profitable foreign property investment.
How will property investment affect your tax situation? We focus on capital gains tax issues, expatriate property investment tax, property investment trusts and other property owning options, and the latest on Property Investment Trusts (PIFs).
On the more practical side, we have sections on buying investment property, including financing property investment (buy-to-let mortgages), finding a buy to let property, finding a good conveyancing solicitor, dealing with planning, and letting and maintaining your property.
