Back to: Our model explained
Long term rental demand is number one priority when searching for suitable Buy-to-Let (BTL) locations. But, we also want to anticipate areas which hint at long term growth so that we can benefit from that also.
There are lots of ways to spot growth areas, as well as areas which are seeing increased rental demand. Using the Census, for example is a great way to identify population trends in the UK. Local councils publish information on proposed development areas and there's a wealth of information online to help with your search.
We have been very successful in this field. For example, we bought near the Olympic development in London at the right time and saw our property prices double in a short period of time. We also started advising investors to buy in Eastbourne almost a decade ago and since then it has become the 2nd fastest growing seaside resort in the whole of the UK!
