Property Investment UK Tips - Consider Location When Targeting Tenants

Are you considering investing in a property that you can then rent out to other people but not sure where to start? Wondering which of the properties currently on the market would be a good deal for beginner investors such as yourself? Renting out an extra property can help you earn a lot of extra cash in the long run (especially if you rent out to students!). In terms of property investment in the UK, buy-to-let properties are the most popular.

You need to make sure that you invest in a property that is in a good location. It is one of the most important factors that tenants consider when they are looking for a place to stay. If you pick a house or flat in a bad location, you will find it very hard to get a return on your initial investment.

Different locations will have different average rates for rent, and some areas will be more popular than others. Beginner investors should pick a property in a popular area that is close to facilities and needs relatively little work.

You have to consider who you want to occupy the property you are going to invest in, as the location will affect the type of tenants you get. If you want families, buy a property that is near to schools and other amenities, in what is considered to be a safe neighbourhood. If you're planning on renting to students, get a house near to a university campus, near to transport links to the campus and other popular student hang outs.
