Tenant Demand High, Housing Stock Low * New Buy To Let Investors Welcome *
New property investors
Due to high demand for properties, and lack of housing stock, we are now welcoming new property investors.
During the past 6 months we have put in place various digital management tools that allow us to streamline our tenant referencing process.
In this current climate, we no longer have enough stock available to accommodate tenant demand. We are experiencing a huge surge in applicants for properties, sometimes with as many 30 applicants applying for a property within a day of it going to market, and at present, the only stock we have to offer are properties where our current tenants are vacating from, which doesn’t happen that often now. So how do we help tenants find suitable properties?! …

Property Investment, Dundee
Dundee is Scotland’s fourth largest city, with two local Universities and a population of around 160,000 Annual property prices have surged in recent years, with a variety of factors having an impact on this, such as the the regeneration of the Waterfront, the V&A Museum and the upcoming Eden Project. In spite of the fact property prices have surged, there are always good buy to let investment deals available. Strong rental demand in Dundee continues year on year. This is, in our opinion, one of the best cities to invest in!
With the lack of social housing available in Scotland, the private rental sector is the only market that can support tenants in finding suitable homes.
Here we’ll give you an example of a current investor’s gross yield
1 Bed Apartment, Strathmartine Road, Dundee
Property purchase price £65,500
Achievable annual rent £5820
Generally, investors should be looking at a minimum return of 5% on their buy to let investments, so above 8% is very desirable, and a great return.
Lets take a look at ‘net’ rental yield
Net rental yield is calculated by using the price of the property, the income generated and the costs and fees of owning the property.
Net rent calculation
Landlord purchased their property for £65,500
Monthly rent £485 x 12 = £5820 (annual rental income)
Annual mortgage payments £1800
Maintenance, repairs and insurance £585
Rent £5820 minus Costs £2385 = £3435 / £65500 x 100 = 5.24%
Nykky Danielewicz, iLet owner says:
“Increased rents, reduced time to let and lack of housing stock is having a negative impact on the PRS. Nonetheless, a buy to let investment still returns far more than many other investments, so as long as investors are in it for the long-haul and they invest wisely, they should still consider the property rental market as a sound long term investment”.
