There was talk of buy-to-let landlords hitting the investment jackpot when a new figures were released recently that showed buy-to-let property has out-performed nearly every other type of investment since 1996, with some property owners seeing returns of up to 1,400%.
On average every £1,000 invested in buy-to-let back in 1996 is now worth above £14,000. These figures come from economists at the Wriglesworth Consultancy and the team at Experience Invest can only agree with the findings.
Seven times the return on cash
Buy-to-let property investors have seen money invested in property return seven times more than cash invested in the bank. It’s no wonder that savvy investors are looking at the returns on property above any other investment class.
The figures show that buy-to-let has not only provided very strong returns for average investors since 1996, but it has also allowed a group of organised and ambitious investors to become very wealthy.
