The average market value of landlords’ investment property reached a record high of £1.70m during the third quarter of 2018, according to Paragon’s latest PRS Trends research.
The survey, based on interviews with 200 landlords, shows that average portfolio values are now 6 per cent higher than the £1.60m peak recorded ten years ago immediately prior to the global financial crisis.
The report states that during the banking crisis, portfolio values fell sharply to £1.35m in Q1 2009.
At the time of the crisis, landlords had an average of 12 properties in their portfolio and maintained their portfolios at around this size throughout the crisis period, before beginning to add to them once again from 2010 onwards.
After peaking at 14.8 properties in Q3 2014, the average portfolio size now stands at 12.6 properties.
However, despite record portfolio values, landlord optimism about the future was found to be subdued.
Just over one in 10 landlords (11 per cent) say they feel optimistic about the prospects for their property portfolio over the next twelve months and two times as many (21 per cent) expect to sell some of their buy-to-let properties than those who expect to buy (9 per cent).Even assuming their portfolios remain unchanged in size, more landlords expect to see a slight drop in their portfolio value over the next 12 months than those who anticipate an increase, the survey finds.Full/source article What are your views on whether to decrease your portfolio, remain as it is, or increase it?SEE ALSO - Where next for house prices?UP NEXT - House prices would plummet 35% in "no deal"DON'T MISS - Should I buy another BTL or wait?NOW WATCH:

Slight confusion needing some clarification on the number of properties landlords holds. I have read that majority of landlords hold less than 4 BTL properties but this article appears to suggest average landlord has 12 BTL properties, that is surely wrong?
Paragon tend to lend to landlords with portfolios so I expect the survey was of their borrowers.
Could both be true ie most landlords have less than four but the average is skewed by those that have 100+, for example.
