Word of the Week
This week's word of the week is . . . opportunity!
As we enter into another week of lock down, let's not neglect to look for the positive that can be found in this season. Perhaps it's more time with our immediate loved ones, or a greater appreciation of walks in your local area. It could be an opportunity to be more intentional in relationships with those we can't see face-to-face.
Within your business or work place, are there opportunities to strengthen your company within this time? Different ways to work that you may not have considered before?
"A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty." - Winston S. Churchill

How does property investment work?
Unlike other asset classes, property enables you to gear your investment through investing a percentage of your cash rather than all of it. Property provides an attractive and sustainable income for investors, which if compared to a typical savings rate will provide income of up to 10 times that amount. Since the 1950s property values have doubled on average every 7 to 10 years. By investing in property, you are using your money to generate more money. You are making your money work for you.
How to calculate return on investment property?
Yield is the term which investors use to calculate a return. To calculate the yield all you do is times the monthly rental amount by 12 and divide it into the property value.
How much higher are mortgage rates for investment property?
Historically, buy to let mortgages have been in the region of 1.00% more expensive than the typical residential mortgage. However, over the past few years the gap between residential and buy to let rates has reduced as lenders have gained an appetite for buy to let lending. Furthermore, lender arrangement fees tend to be higher, with the more expensive buy to let mortgages charging a percentage of up to 2.5% of the mortgage amount.
