Michael Clarke, MARLA, Lettings Director at Mackenzie Smith comments on the latest information from The Mortgage Works on Buy to Let which shows confidence with landlords  is high and stable…

Michael Clarke“I think the ‘seasoned’ investment landlords with a medium sized portfolio is feeling pretty confident about the state of the private rented sector just at the moment.

“But it is the ‘ordinary’ man in the street who is now being seduced by the upturn in the housing market and looking at investing in property that is more interesting. There were some people brave enough to buy an investment property while the housing market was in the doldrums and now that prices have picked up they are enjoying very healthy returns.

“With the upturn in the housing market the ‘feel good’ factor has returned and confidence increased so much so that ordinary people are heavily investing in the buy-to-let market and becoming landlords.

“There has been a change in attitude to renting and many people view being a tenant as a preferred option – home ownership is not the ‘be all and end all’ that it once was and all the time there is a healthy demand for properties to rent, buying an investment property makes good sense.
