Are you a mortgage lender, landlord or a tenant?

usb-flash-drive-twist1The Spring 2014 issue of B2L heralded good news. Buy to let mortgage applications were up 62% in the Connells group last year and this huge uplift was refelected by other lenders. London Landlords earn double the return of the national average, prices are high in London but the yield seems to make this worth while. Rates across the board have never been so low, great for the landlord. This also means for tenants renting privately there will be more choice of rental properties in your areas, as more people become landlords or landlords expand their existing portfolios.

Great news for tenants that the government is seeking to make it easier to request long terms tenancies, this will give you security, knowing you can stay in your rental home long term. As a tenant, remember it is your reponsibility to insure your contents, if your were burgled, could you afford to replace your contents without insurance?

Did you know the average age of a first time buyer is now early thirties? This means people could be renting for 10 years before buying their first home.

There is a big demand at the moment for let property services from: financing, insurance, letting and property management. If you are one of these businesses, why not try to get ahead fo the competition and promote your business with a varied range of promotional products. Pens, coasters and fridge magnets all enjoy a long life as a promotional product and are cost effective. Or you could spend a little more and give your clients a mug or a USB, they will be used time and time again reminding your clients of your service.s0276-house-group-v1[1]
