Not so long ago, buy-to-let was seen as an assured route to long-term equity growth and short-term income. But tax hikes and increased regulation have made this strategy much more challenging. It’s left would-be property investors and existing landlords wondering what’s the best way to make money from property in today’s market.
Small-scale property development is the strategy now being adopted by savvy investors and landlords looking to maximise their returns. Sweeping new Permitted Development Rights have made it easier for people to convert small commercial buildings, generating substantial six-figure profits in short timescales, working in their spare time and with no prior development experience. And for existing landlords the results can be truly transformational, particularly when combined with the right buy-to-let strategy.
In this book, we reveal how anyone looking to generate wealth through property can take on these relatively small, lower-risk developments. And with the level of personal investment required being far lower than other property investment models, it makes small-scale property development the perfect strategy for both new and experienced property investors.
