Chris Baguley, commercial director at buy-to-let lender Together, said there remained plenty of appeal for those willing to commit properly to this market.
He said: “As casual owners exit the sector, buy-to-let is becoming ever more professionalised, as individuals and companies adopt a more rigorous approach to acquiring the right properties in the right areas, and getting them ready to rent within a limited time frame on a tight budget. Perhaps most notably in the housing sector, the balance of today, there is therefore notably less competition than there was before.
“Even if we don’t see the capital growth which has been evident over the past two decades, the income available from property investment can still be attractive compared to other asset classes.”The boom days may be over, but there is still life in the buy-to-let market, particularly for those who view it as a long-term investment rather than a quick and easy route to high returns. With the right financial backing, it can still prove profitable.

Hi DL.... I often read and like your posts , and mostly agree with you!!!
I personally think that was one if the most sensible and valid reports I have read in a very long time... as you are always saying it is a changing sector but play the long term game and it hopefully should all work out ???...... we hope ???
BTL will continue for years to come. What will change is the type of person entering the market. It will be more professional / full time landlords who view it as a business rather than a money making opportunity on the side. Rules/ regulations will change but the experienced will adapt to those changes.
I aimed initially just to buy one as an alternative pension
I would still do exactly the same today given the prevailing circumstances now
The opportunities are still there
Its just I got carried away back then
Buy just one though today and its a great way to invest 50K for the future
If you get bold buy one extra for each child and stop there
It doesn't have to take over your life - it can just be an add on to the main event

I am open to other business or investment opportunities but haven’t yet found anything better, plus I enjoy it and I’m good at it.
I see far too many fund managers around me making mega bucks in commission for themselves and 2-3% profit for their investors.
I use managed fund and some managers are well worth there fee and if you look around you can pay less than you have stated
put together the tax free advantage and tax relief
it can work out a very good deal with little effort belive me
