High Yield Repossessed Houses For Sale as Investment Property

Ever since the housing market crash, people have stayed away from investment property under the false assumption that there is no longer good money to be made. However, nothing could be further from the truth. With lending opportunities somewhat limited and plenty of people still facing foreclosure, investment property is as strong as it has ever been.

At Fruitful Properties, we believe in the dynamic potential of investing in residential property. That's why we work so hard to find our clients repossessed properties that they can put to work on a buy-to-let basis. Our clients know that the right portfolio of properties, managed in the right way, can yield results far better than just about any other investment. They are building portfolios that will only increase in value as time goes on – portfolios consisting of high-yield repossessed houses sourced through us.

Keys to Successful Property Investing

We believe there are two keys to successful property investing: high-yield properties and good locations. We help our clients concentrate on both for maximum return on investment.

Where high-yield properties are concerned, we leave no stone unturned in our search for the best off-market homes at discounted prices. When we present clients with investment opportunities, they know we've done our homework. Many of the properties we offer start generating profit through equity the moment the transaction is finalised.

Where location is concerned, the investment made must be in proportion to rental rates in a given location. Pay too high a price against too low a rental yield, and your investment does not do much good. We source properties in locations where rental rates will maximise yield.

Why Repossessed Houses

Investors can choose just about any type of property they want, and many do. However, repossessed houses are especially lucrative because of their potential. In many cases, banks are just trying to get the houses off their books and have been unsuccessful in doing so. This offers investors the opportunity to get discounted prices unavailable on the retail market.

After the purchase, a little bit of remodelling prepares a home to be put on the rental market very quickly. In a short amount of time, these properties can be generating excellent rental income that will continue for decades. Repossessed houses offer one of the best rates of return when chosen carefully.

Time to Invest

Property investment has long been considered a necessary part of a stable and diversified investment portfolio. Residential property may see price reductions from time to time, but over the long haul, property values continue to rise. For a long-term investment strategy, there is no better vehicle than real estate.

Whether you are a brand-new investor or you have been at it a while, buy-to-let properties should be part of your portfolio. Fruitful Properties is here to assist you in finding the best investments on the market. We've been successfully doing so for our clients for years; we would love the opportunity to do so for you as well.

30 July 2014 Number of Houses on Sale Remain Stagnant Despite Price Increases

Under normal circumstances, one would expect the number of houses on sale to rise as values go up. People who have been waiting to get the most value for their homes typically tend to sell as prices climb. However, that has not been the case here in the UK over the last 18 months. Even as prices have risen dramatically, the number of listings has remained stagnant.

A lot has changed in the UK housing market since early spring, including what Bank of England governor Mark Carney has been willing to say about it publicly.
