Lets News: BUY-TO-LET IS BOOMING SAYS FOX & SONS
The Buy-To-Let market continues to boom according to recent figures from local estate agency Fox & Sons in Brighton. As part of its parent company the Sequence Group, Fox & Sons has recorded nearly a 42 per cent rise in the number of Buy-To-Let mortgages written over the first three months of this year as compared to the first quarter of 2014.
“Buy-to-let is one of the strongest performing sectors in the housing market fuelled by better availability of buy-to-let mortgages, low interest rates and house prices still within easy reach”, says Lettings Manager, Sarah Tappenden, at Fox & Sons. “With demand for rental property remaining strong and rents at an all time high, now presents a great window of opportunity for many new landlords or those looking to expand their portfolios.”
“Also, with the changes to Pensions Legislation since 5th April, there could be more potential Buy-To-Let investors looking to enter the market,” continues Sarah Tappenden. “We want customers to know that we are here as a ‘one stop shop’ to provide guidance on how to make a successful Buy-To-Let purchase - - everything from finding a property and tenants through to managing the property and sourcing the right mortgage (subject to status and meeting lender criteria*).”
Fox & Sons can offer a range of lettings services and advice, from matching tenants to their ideal properties to full property managements, rent collection and insurance advice. For further information, please contact the lettings team on 01273 770635 or email:
