Research shows best locations in the UK for buy to let property investment

Property Wire reports property investment in the UK remains solid with regions such as Edinburgh with strong rents and more affordable prices offering the bet yields for landlords. READ MORE.

Cullen Property opinion:
New research suggests property investment in the UK remains solid despite Brexit, the shock general election, and economic and political uncertainty. Edinburgh has always been a popular buy-to-let property investment location choice. Not only do Edinburgh properties provide a strong net rental yield (with an average of 4.8%), they typically hold their capital values well in turbulent economic times.

Little evidence of Article 50 impact on property market

Scottish Legal News reports The property market in Edinburgh and east central Scotland is showing little evidence of any impact from recent political changes, including the triggering of Article 50 and a possible second Scottish referendum. READ MORE.

Cullen Property opinion:
The current property demand versus supply means it's a favourable market for sellers, with the average property selling price in Edinburgh increasing by 11.6% in the first three months of 2017. We believe, with the amount of political and economic uncertainty surrounding the British property market, it could be a great time to invest. With a number of investors debating whether UK property is the right investment choice, there is less competition in the property market. If you are unsure how the recent UK political changes may impact a potential or current Edinburgh property investment, why not contact our investment team for any queries you may have?

Britain's prettiest streets are revealed with The Shambles in York, Edinburgh's Royal Mile and the 'star' of an iconic Hovis ad among the top 10

The Daily Mail reports Edinburgh's Royal Mile is named the second prettiest street in Edinburgh. READ MORE.

Cullen Property opinion:
Edinburgh is full of elegant streets, historic lanes and quirky mews, so it isn’t surprising to hear that the heart of our city, the Royal Mile, was voted Britain’s second prettiest street. Stretching from Edinburgh Castle down to the Holyrood gates, the Royal Mile dates back to 1093! The street is lined with Gothic architecture, intimate museums, several churches, a cathedral, the Scottish Parliament, and is renowned for being home to the world’s largest performing arts festival – The Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Edinburgh’s historic streets are filled with Victorian, Georgian and Edwardian tenements, which we’ve found make highly prized investment properties.
