Buy-to-let property investment is becoming increasingly popular in Scotland. There are many other factors at play here, too—Edinburgh’s repeated ranking as one of the best places to live in the UK; the growing tech industry in Glasgow; the reputation and international appeal of Scottish universities; the huge price gap between properties North and South of the border; and the increasing demand for rental properties due to lack of homes for sale.
The appeal of buy-to-let investment in Scotland comes as little surprise to us here at Clyde Property. With steady growth in Scottish property values and a positive forecast over the next few years, it really is a great time for landlords, despite recent changes to Stamp Duty and tax on rental income. And in light of the disparity between buyer demand and insufficient stock on the sales market, rental properties of all sizes and values are attracting a great deal of interest.
To gain a better understanding of the range of rental properties we successfully market at Clyde Property, take a look at these recent letting highlights in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
