Transaction volumes on course to be boosted by buy-to-let activity

Rightmove research shows that rents are delivering average gross yields of 5.9%.


With some remortgage finance available at lowest ever levels, from as little as 2% for a two year fixed rate and 2.7% for a five year fixed rate, there is the possibility of a straight arbitrage of immediate return on money borrowed against your main residence.


Shipside comments:


“There are blindingly good returns on the right buy-to-let investment, with the Funding for Lending Scheme giving the possibility of an immediate and enticing profit gap between borrowing costs and available rental returns. With the prospect of capital growth in future years if you buy the right property, you can see why investors are piling in to the rental market – why wouldn’t they when it can offer a much better return than money in the bank?”
