Is Student Property Investment a Risky Option?

Student property has thoroughly shed its former status as a niche investment. In the early stages of this year total investment value in the sector is expected to hit the £2 billion mark, according to a recent Aspen Woolf report.

2013 The Year For Turning

   Article written by John Grant Angeletta.  BMV Investment Deals  Since the economic crash of 2006, most of Europe has been in financial turmoil with some of our continental cousins still bumping along the bottom of the barrel. Portugal, Spain, Italy, Ireland and Greece have enormous money mountains to climb with some governments rightly accused of poorly regulating property development that contributed significantly to their economic havoc. Our hearts go out to the people! You may have noticed the U.S. and Britain did not escape the economic tsunami but we have not been effected to the same extent as mainland Europe. Recent pundit reports are encouraging about an earlier economic recovery ahead of Europe. For instance, we recently reported that the U.S. is seeing strong recovery within the building supplies trade and that usually indicates home sales will be hot on its heels. In short, people dont buy bricks, tiles, boilers, kitchens and bathrooms unless they are building and/or fitting-out...

In his latest free download, he reveals that the transition from BTL investing to new build developing is not as much of a leap as you may think…  As you’ve probably noticed, making genuine regular profits from buy-to-let is far, far harder than it used to be! That’s why it’s more important than ever to supplement your long-term investment strategies.  Of course, BTL is a great long-term investment strategy. Although, the value of our portfolio can be considerable… after finance and maintenance costs, it can be hard to yield regular income… In fact, sometimes we can be lucky if we make any!  Though of course, with BTL that...
