With yesterday’s announcement that specialist buy to let mortgage lender, Paragon, has launched 44 new mortgage products targeted at professional landlords, it is clear that confidence in the buy to let sector is extremely strong.
With rents rising and demand from tenants out striping supply there is no doubt that landlords are in a favorable position. This combined with a renewed appetite for buy to let mortgage lending, means that now might be the ideal time for property investors to grow their portfolios.
If you are a landlord who is considering further property investment in 2012, it may be worth teaming up with an estate agent that can provide access to properties being sold chain free. Such properties are often sold with vacant possession meaning minimal delays, a reduced risk of collapsed transaction and a speedy response to submitted offers.
Countrywide provides access to chain free properties sold by both private vendors and corporate clients such as banks and building societies, equity release lenders, government agencies, official receivers and probate service providers.
