Welcome to Buy To Let Finder
I'm Brett, and I'd like to welcome you to Buy To Let Finder.
I want BTLFinder to become the #1 resource for anyone who is interested in buying UK property for investment purposes.
I'm a landlord myself - I bought my first (and only) BTL property in 2006. I saw BTL as a perfect way to get on the property ladder,
while maintaining the flexibility I need to move around the country (and indeed the World) in search of employment.
While I pretty much bought at the peak of the market, by 2014 my property was pretty much back to the purchase price I paid for it.
So while capital growth has been a disappointment, letting the property itself has been more successful. In 8 years of letting out my
property, I've had 4 different sets of tenants, and a total void time of under 2 months.
The amount of rent I've had over the years has fluctuated in line with market conditions, but the property pretty much breaks even.
So that's a little about my experiences in the rental property market.
I'm also a software developer, and I built this entire site myself. So if you have any feature requests or suggestions, then
get in touch and I'll do whatever I can to make the site even more useful.
