Investing In Real Estate In London

Written by Posted On Tuesday, 13 January 2015 12:54

As with property investment in any area of the country, buying a property in London to profit either from increase resale value or from ongoing rental yield, means buying the right property at the right price in the right location, and at the right time. By maximising all of these factors, you can ensure that you enjoy the maximum return from your investment, and that you enjoy a fruitful return on your investment. Using a property finding consultant can help to ensure that you have access to all of the most relevant and best quality properties, including some of which you may not have otherwise seen yourself.


Property prices are higher in London than they are anywhere else in the country, but there is considerably disparity from one location to the next. Choosing a location that is increasing in desirability, rather than one that is already at its peak, means that you can enjoy virtually guaranteed profit from your rental yields, and it also means that you should see the asset value of your property increase too.


Ensure that the local amenities match the type of person that is most likely to rent your property. If you’re looking to rent out a five bedroom house, then it is most likely that you are looking for a family to rent to. This means that they will want access to schools, shops, and other family based amenities. They may also want convenient commuting options so that Mum or Dad can get to work every morning.


Price is obviously important, and if you pay over the odds for a property, then you will be playing catch up straight away. Thoroughly research the area itself, ensure that you know typical and average prices, and try to compare price trends to those of similar areas. Use a property finder or property consultant to help ensure that you are buying property at the best price, because this is the only way to help ensure that you maximise your yield.

Property Type

Generally, smaller properties cost less than large properties in the same area, but this may not always be the case. In areas that are popular with single professionals, it may be difficult to rent out a massive fie bedroom house, because single professionals want the convenience and ease that comes from living in a small apartment. Do bear this in mind when you think you see a bargain for a large accommodation, because it may not prove to be the bargain you had hoped for.

Rental Or Resale Properties

Some properties and some areas are better suited to rental than they are to resale, with only property investors generally looking to buy. If you’re looking to flip homes, by buying them low, renovating them, and then selling them for a premium, you should look at areas that have a high concentration of owned properties rather than rented. Again, your property finder can help provide you with this information if you ask them to.
