The UK property market continues to be ripe with opportunity. Whilst the heady days of double digit growth are behind us (perhaps excepting London) there is still plenty of profit available for investors willing to put in the hard graft. Buy to let is a popular avenue for property investment, and as a passive investment is a perfectly safe and sensible option. Returns are usually in the 3-6% bracket once costs have been accounted for, and it requires little input on the behalf of the investor. However, if the bottom line is what you’re chasing, renovation can boost your income and the value of your house. It will require time and effort, but done right it should increase your income and your properties value.
