FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE/ 15/06/2015
Martin & Co publish regional Marketing Intelligence reports
Report confirms the net total return that can be made from a buy-to-let investment in the Southern England region can reach 9.0%
Martin & Co [office name] have published their 2015 Marketing Intelligence Report for the South of England, as part of their national campaign to compare property with other types of investment.
The report contains in-depth data and analysis of the local region in terms of buy-to-let and the private rental sector.
For example, a buy-to-let investment of £100,000 in the Southern England region in 2005 would be worth £134,013 today. Furthermore, annual rental income can reach £4,700, which outperforms income from an annuity (£4,500) by 2%. This does not take into account the potential for capital growth, which is consistently on the up since the end of the recession.
The average increase in the cost of property in the region over the last ten years was 34%, with a rent increase of 8.3% in the South East and 6.4% in the South West since 2011.
The average rent tenants are willing to pay in the region is £960pcm.
It is figures like these that support Martin & Co’s belief that buy-to-let is an increasingly viable method of investment, especially following April 2015’s pension reforms.
The regional marketing reports come in response to a national report compiled by Martin & Co last year.
Interesting statistics and figures from our national marketing report include the fact that the return from a buy-to-let investment can reach as high as 13.2%. Furthermore, in six out of nine Martin & Co regions, the returns from net rental income exceeded annual income from taking an annuity.
The hope is that this regional report will give Martin & Co offices and customers a real insight into how their local property market is behaving.
‘Philip Wakefield, owner at Martin and Co Weymouth, said he hopes that this report, together with other material available from the office, will together help landlords come to informed buying decisions when looking for their next investment’
These statistics are available as part of the national marketing report, and copies of the regional report can be requested by getting in contact with your local Martin & Co office, of which there are 24 in the Southern England region.
