In the current economic climate, it is only natural that people will look for ways to generate additional income. Some people will look at getting an extra job or consider the gig economy but if you have a bit more time and money, you may consider becoming a landlord. After all, with rental fees increasing and a prominent level of demand for rental property, there is a strong platform for entering this market. A recent study suggests that many people are considering becoming landlords and if you are looking to enter this market, we can help.

The study has been undertaken by Sainsbury’s Banking and their findings suggest that around 9% of adults in the UK are considering obtaining a buy to let mortgage this year. This would amount to close to 5 million people. While there is next to no chance of all these people entering the market, it is likely that there will be many new entrants to the landlord sector this year.

While there is high demand for rental accommodation and rising rental fees makes being a landlord seem appealing to many people, it is essential that landlords and investors realise that there is a lot to consider before buying property. Even in areas like Horsham and Crawley, there are options to consider before investing and it may be that one area is ideal for a landlord while another landlord may be far better suited to investing in another part of the region.

No matter where you are located, it is vital that you know who the most likely buyer or buyers are in your area. One of the most common mistakes that vendors make is assuming that buyers will be like them when they bought the property or not giving the buyer much consideration at all. This is a big mistake and it may be that there is a group of buyers who are keen to buy your home that you haven’t considered at all, but this could give you a big advantage in selling your home.
