Brits are still confident about buy-to-let investing

Recent research from TheHouseShop.com, one of the UK’s leading online property advertising platforms, has revealed that nearly 20% of respondents to a survey about investment asset classes were still confident about the buy-to-let market. This is the case despite numerous new regulations introduced by the government and upcoming tax changes.

Key findings from the research include:

-       13% said they preferred premium bonds

-       7% said they would be investing in stocks and shares

-       34% said they would be putting their money into high interest ISAs

-       25% of respondents aged between 35 and 44 said they preferred buy-to-let as an asset class

-       15% of respondents aged 55 and over favoured buy-to-let compared to other asset classes

-       Buy-to-let was rated the most favoured asset class in London with 26% considering it the safest investment option

It would appear that on the whole, buy-to-let investing is still very popular despite the increase in tax and the post-Brexit uncertainty in the markets.
