'Good first quarter' in buy-to-let

'Good first quarter' in buy-to-let

New statistics released today by the Association of Residential Letting Agents (Arla) have said that returns made by investors in the property market rose in the first quarter of the year.

During this time, buy-to-let investors saw these figures rise by 0.27 per cent, something that means the average return was up to 21.7 per cent.

One of the reasons cited for this increase by investors was the notable boost from immigration, which they said has had a major impact.

Operations manager at Arla Ian Potter remarked that this is good evidence the market is in good shape but reminded investors to adopt a degree of caution.

"There can be no doubt from these figures that buy-to-let landlords are well aware of the opportunities but behave with caution. In fact, caution has been the watchword in the buy-to-let market since its inception," he commented.

Recent figures published by Hamptons International stated that yields are strong in London and the south-east.ADNFCR-1222-ID-18532069-ADNFCR
