Hooray for Scotland!
One of our favourite areas personally to invest in,
affordability is huge - over 80% of my buy to let
properties are in parts of the country where prices
are no more than 4 times the average salaries (why
would I buy in areas where prices are 8-9 times the
salaries, when I get houses at half this price and
twice as affordable to the local market in the UK?).
then makes the rental yields twice as good generally
ie around 8-10%!
I buy for buy to let, passive income is top of the
pile, followed by potential for growth (based on local
affordability - not speculative growth!)
also like to buy where locals will live long term,
as opposed to short term holiday lets, which can fluctuate
depending on the economy.
Do I care what the house looks like? Colour of the
carpet? How big the garden is?
Not really! All I really worry about is how much surplus
cashflow the property will make me every month!
Would I prefer 100 pretty houses generating me a surplus
£50 per month ie £5000 between them, or
100 ugly houses generating me £150 surplus each
month ie £15,000 per month?
the answer to that question is pretty obvious!
investors do not get emotional when they invest,
they just concern themselves with the ROI,
and passive income.
other great thing about investing in Scotland,
is we can get every property prevalued, so
we can ensure we have the level of discount
we want before we offer the properties out
to investors! So we do not waste any further
money on valuations!
We currently source around 6-8 deals that fit our
criteria here, and I am dealing with 8 clients who
are building up portfolios of up to 20 properties
in Scotland over the next 2 years.
Often these deals go before I can offer them out to
our subscribers, but I have had 3 in late yesterday
and keen for more investors to have the opportunity
to buy here!
