Landlords: buy houses for sale in Basildon 'near schools'

Landlords: buy houses for sale in Basildon 'near schools'

Buy-to-let investors hoping to add to their portfolios could benefit from buying property for sale in Basildon within easy reach of local schools.

Landlords need to consider not only what town they wish to invest in, but where about in that town is best, according to the Residential Landlords Association (RLA).

Speaking at the Landlord and Letting Show on June 28th, Paul Fletcher, spokesman for the RLA, claims that every town has both good and bad areas to buy in.

He continued: "This is a nice tip; buy [a property] near a school. How long is a kid going to be at school for? That could be a nice long-term let."

When considering property for sale in Bath and other university towns, transport links and parking are important, according to the letting expert.

Research from MyVoucherCodes.co.uk has revealed that 67 per cent of renters did not haggle on price when moving into their rental home.

Most tenants were unaware they could try to negotiate, with 29 per cent claiming they did not know haggling was an option.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800609362-ADNFCR
