One of the questions we get asked on a daily basis is whether property is a good investment or not. This answer has so many variables. It’s really something you would have to look at on a case for case basis, but let’s look at some guiding principles that can help you make the right choice.


But you only need to see the news or read a few things on the net and you will already probably already know that property investment is one of the best ways to grow your wealth. However, it usually requires a large sum of money to buy a property and managing them can be very time-consuming especially if you have a number of investment properties.

Investors who are fed up with a stock market or want control of their pension planning are looking at buy to let and property investments. Indeed, figures from the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) say that, over recent years the average landlord’s portfolio has risen from seven to eight properties. One good reason, houses are just good value.

People invest in property than shares is obviously the poor returns in the past decade. When you compared historical house price returns. Investing in property can generate an ongoing income source and it can also rise in value overtime and prove a good investment in the cash value of the home or land that you buy.

The latest house price news, predictions and market reports are saying across the UK there were signs that house prices could rise by 30 per cent over the next five years, surveyors claim.
