Confidence running high in buy to let investments

09 June 2005
Property investors are more confident than ever in the value and security of their buy to let investments, according to new research.

The study, commissioned by The Property Investor and Homebuyer Show North, found that almost three-quarters of investors are still relying on buy to let for their future wealth, despite current concerns about the housing market.

Serious buy to let investors are also confident about the market in general, with almost 50 per cent predicting that the market will remain stable over the next 12 months, and almost one quarter (22 per cent) forecasting a moderate rise.

"The results may surprise many who have recently heard negative stories regarding residential buy to let," said Nick Clark, managing director of The Property Investor and Homebuyer Show North.

"However it highlights how serious investors still strongly believe in the future returns of property both commercial and residential, compared with other forms of investments."

The Property Investor and Homebuyer Show North will take place at the GMEX centre in Manchester between June 24th and 26th.
