The South West offers the best opportunity for buy-to-let investors!

- Tue 17 Aug 2021

Following the avid property market we are seeing so far this year, the rentals sector has reached its peak of popularity with stock levels at a historic low.

In the South West there are 520,000 private rental homes which favours strong competition among tenants as only 7,802 of those properties are available to rent, leading to a staggering 1.5% of the market. This astounding figure contributes to the reason for the South West offering the best opportunity for buy-to-let investors. The analysis comes from Sequre Property Investment, which look to identify the regions where more rental stock is required.

Sales Director, Darren Ellis comments "We have seen rentals rise due to the shortage of properties, which isn’t welcome for new tenants however now more than ever, an attractive reason for Landlords to grow their portfolio. We are, as always eager to hear from any Landlords that would like some help, guidance or are thinking of employing a property management team instead of managing themselves."
