If you’re still reading, it looks like you’re thinking of going for it! Armed with sound advice from us and others, start looking at areas and properties, obtaining information on price and potential rental income. Buying a buy-to-let property is different from buying a home to live in. You’ll then need to ensure that what you’re buying will generate sufficient income and be desirable enough to attract good tenants. The more areas and properties you visit, the more of an expert you’ll become in what a fair market price will be, as well as understanding rental demand.
