            Property News - Survey shows tenants are easy to find

An independent survey of landlords, that looks at attitudes towards the government's proposed Sale and Rent Back system and the housing market, has revealed that capital growth is as important as rental yields.

Although the results show that in the future the longer term issue of capital growth is deemed to be important by 58 per cent of buy-to-let investors.

Recent research has revealed that an increasing number of people are turning to the rental sector, and a report by buy-to-let mortgage brokers, The Money Centre, backs this up.

Of those questioned 63 per cent said it was very easy / fairly easy to find appropriate tenants and only 37 per cent stated that it was either difficult or neither easy or difficult.

It is interesting to note that those investors with the largest portfolios were the ones who were most likely to invest in more property.

Some 40 per cent of landlords that had 20 or more properties said that they are currently buying more buy-to-let properties.
