Why Should I Invest In Property?

Are You Thinking About Investing In Property?

Hello, my name’s Bevan Mottram, owner of Kelham Square Property Management here in Sheffield.  

I think you should think exactly why you want to invest specifically in property.  Maybe you have a particular passion for property or maybe somebody’s just sort of said to you “oh you must invest in property, bricks and mortar, it’s a safe investment etc., etc.”.

Have you considered other investments, for example stocks and shares?  Have you got a pension? Do you want to invest in properties specifically for your pension?

So before you do actually start thinking about investing, just think why property and not any other investment vehicle.

What Are The Benefits Of Property Investing?

What benefits are associated with property investment?

Hi, my name is Bevan Mottram, owner of Kelham Square Property Management here in Sheffield.

Okay, so what are the benefits of investing in property, pre-2008 historical figures gave us or kind of said that every seven to ten years property doubled in value. Now do bear in mind that was pre-2008, it’s certainly not been the case in more recent years, so you have to consider property investing as a long term medium. I’d say at least five years to ten years.

Your return on investment can be good. Your yield on the property, if for example you’re looking to invest in Sheffield, should be anywhere between six percent and twelve percent, depending on property type.This is better than many current accounts or many savings account.

The other benefit of investing in property is that you are in control. It’s a physical bricks and mortar investment, so you’re responsible for the maintenance of the property, your obligations as a landlord and it can be a benefit for some that there’s no actual fund manager involved other than maybe a block management company or indeed, your letting agent. As an actual investment to yourself, you are in full control.
