Doorknobs - Making it easier to invest and make profits in the property market

Since the start of the recession (2008), the amount of sales instructions to estate agents have now halved. This inactivity has helped stabilise the market and restored common sense whereby lenders are no longer proliferate with investor’s and the taxpayer’s money.

We believe that property will continue to be a better investment over stocks and shares. The FTSE 100 is still over 1,000 points below its peak 11-years ago but property prices have now bottomed out and stabilised. Since the year 2000, the average property price is still double today, in spite of the effects of the recession.

Another reason for investing in property is the historically low, falling annuity rates, they have halved in 20 years. Longer life expectancy will compound this problem further.

So in view of the above we have created some exciting solutions for our clients to enter and expand in the future property market.

With our expert local knowledge of the rental market, supply and demand and rents being achieved, we are in a great position to offer landlords the best advice on potential rental income and the return on investment they could achieve with the right property.

The involvement of Doorknobs early in the Buy-To-Let process will help ensure you can generate the optimum rental income and be assured that your property complies with all current legislation.

Gross returns - i.e. the rent paid before subtracting the cost of letting, including management fees, maintenance, service charges ground rents and insurance is usually between 7% and 10% although this can be less for expensive properties.

The average rental return in the UK today is around the 10% mark and capital appreciation is expected to match, and maybe exceed, inflation into the foreseeable future. Most landlords try to achieve gross rents between 130% and 150% of their monthly mortgage payment.
