Investment Property in Bristol
We offer professional advice for investing in Buy to Let Property
Whether you are buying your first buy to let, or looking to expand your portfolio, taking the first steps in buying a property as an investment can seem like a very daunting process. From seeking mortgage advice, viewing the plethora of properties that are on the market, through to placing an offer and seeing the process through to completion, it almost seems like a full time job, and you probably already have one of those already!
Here at Sarah Kenny we have many years experience in buying property on behalf of clients, with a view to us managing it for them for the medium to long term. Whether you just need a quick guide to achievable rental level on a property which you have already bought, through to a more bespoke service whereby you wish us to source the property for you, feel free to contact Peter Allen or Rebecca McKelvey who will be able to go through the process with you.
Why Invest in Bristol?
Bristol was recently named as the 'Best City in Britain to Live In' (source Sunday Times 2014).
It consistently outperforms other cities in the country in terms of economy and quality of life. There are two thriving Universities, an airport, high employment and the housing market is booming.
It tops the list of destinations for Londoners relocating. Combined with the new Bristol Arena, a £90-million indoor venue, due for completion in 2017 and a new high-speed rail service in 2018, knocking 22 minutes off the journey to Paddington, Bristol will only continue to be an area with a high demand for rental property.

What are your top tips for buying a Buy to Let Property?
Asking yourself 'would I want to live here?' is not a good starting point, as your own expectations may be very different to the 'average' tenant! That is why using us as a sounding board will help align your views to that of the average tenant.
We realise that the requirements of each potential client are different and are always very happy to discuss your specific circumstances with you in more detail.
