A handy guide for investors

With competitive mortgage rates available, more flexible access to pensions and dramatic growth in the private rental sector, now is the time to make a buy-to-let property investment.

Now is a good time to make a buy-to-let property investment

Competitive mortgage rates

With lenders competing in the marketplace, mortgage rates are highly competitive.

However, borrowing may not remain this attractive forever. Getting a mortgage on an investment property now means you could take advantage of low interest rates. And, if you fix your mortgage repayments, you’ve got the added reassurance of knowing what your repayments will be.

Rents have been increasing

While competitive mortgage rates are available,* UK rents continue to rise in almost every area of the country.** With a buoyant private rental market, a brand new buy-to-let investment is an increasingly attractive prospect. At Barratt, we’ll help make the whole process of buying and letting as simple as possible.
