Houses are the best options for people considering buy-to-let properties, news that could interest decorators in Liverpool. Potential property owners may have thought flats would provide the best returns, but with the residential sector booming this is not the case.
James Wyatt, partner of Surrey based letting agents Barton Wyatt, noted there has been a big increase in the demand for “family-sized properties”. “The UK is a safe place to invest and with the continuing uncertainty in global stock markets, bricks and mortar are seen as a simple and reassuring investment,” he added.
On top of this, Mr. Wyatt observed they are very often let unfurnished, which means landlords only have to worry about painting and decorating. In order to secure a good finish, people may want to think about using a professional for this process. This comes after the Association of Residential Letting Agents revealed the private rented sector is nearing capacity.
