When was Robak Properties established?
Robak Properties was established in 2016, and is based in London, United Kingdom. Our founder and director Robina Babor has spent over ten years working in construction and property development/investing. Robak Properties was founded to connect investors with advice about where and how to find new buy-to-let properties, along with advice from recommended independent experts regarding financing, tax-related queries and other aspects of buying property.
Should I invest in property in 2017?
In a word, yes! Property is a solid investment, with real estate being one of the strongest performing asset classes globally in 2015. A certain amount of due diligence and research is required – as is the case with any investment. However, with the right advice and guidance, property can potentially yield high returns with low risk. Mortgage rates in the UK are predicted to remain low this year, and strong demand versus supply means the number of people looking for rented accommodation will remain high.
Will I have to manage my property?
Not necessarily. At Robak Properties, we select a number of different investment opportunities, including those that have property management options available. This gives you the flexibility to be as involved or as hands-off as you like when it comes to managing your investment, something that many landlords find attractive.
What makes a good buy-to-let investment?
Buying an undervalued property in an emerging or “up and coming’ market is a great way to build wealth. With the right property in a sought-after area, you can not only enjoy immediate returns in the form of rental income, but there is also the possibility for the property to experience high capital gains as local prices rise, which can be great if you decide to sell. Buying in an area with strong demand for rented accommodation and with a preferable tenant profile is also something to keep in mind.
Where are the best buy-to-let markets in the UK?
When selecting an investment property, look for markets that have yet to reach their full potential. These include areas with strong economic development plans, and areas set for regeneration and high levels of local investment. Areas like Leeds, Salford and Glasgow are top earners in the UK, along with neighborhoods in London.
