If you like the idea of investing in something tangible, then buy-to-let property investment could be a good idea.
Investing in bricks and mortar will always feel more ‘real’ than putting your money in stocks and shares and you can be more in control of your investment.
You will need to be prepared to have your money tied up for a long time and accept the fact that property prices can go up, and down.
How does it work?
You can use your own money to buy the residential property you want to rent out, or you can take out a buy-to-let mortgage. You’ll obviously need a cash deposit for the mortgage, in the same way that you would for a traditional mortgage.
