Expert Buy To Let Advice
With returns from cash on deposit at all time lows, many investors are looking at property as an investment choice. Buying a property offers the peace of mind that stocks and shares can’t match. Our team of experts will guide you from start to finish.
Why Buy To Let?
Buying an investment property gives you something tangible to show for your pension or investments. The letting market right now is very strong and decent returns are available for investors. Knowing where and what to buy is the key to a successful investment. We all know what happened to bank shares in Ireland – property is one of the only asset classes that you can physically see and touch and know that your investment wont be wiped out by a liquidity crisis!
Rents are pretty strong now, particularly in Dublin. While yields have fallen considerably over the past couple of years, it’s still possible to achieve 8% gross per annum. Factor in capital appreciation and you have a solid basis for investing.
How much will your service cost?
We don’t charge for general buy to let advice – this can be a coffee, lunch or a chat.
However if we research the market, identify a property, accompany you or attend viewings on your behalf and then negotiate the purchase for you, we will charge you a fee based on our time. This typically ranges from .5% – .75% of the purchase price.
For example, if we secure a property in Dublin 2 for €300,000 , we will typically charge you between €1,500 and €2,250 plus vat. The fee is only charged when you have bought a property.
Wont you just recommend properties you have for sale yourselves?
We will buy a property on your behalf from any agent. Once we have identified the property, we’ll contact the agent and make an appointment to view it. In fact, we can’t act for you and act for the person selling the property at the same time as a conflict of interest could arise.
I’ve heard being a landlord is a hassle. Is it?
It can be – but we’re here to help with that.
As a landlord you have responsibilities towards your tenants and you need to make sure you’re properly armed to deal with all possibilities.
In addition you need to consider:
- Minimum Housing Standards
- PRTB Registration
- Building Energy Rating compliance
- Tax compliance
Thankfully our management service is hassle free and means you don’t have to deal with anything, except instruct us in the first place!
Can I buy this through my pension?
Yes – in fact it makes a lot of sense to do this.
We have partnered with a financial services company who can advise you properly about buying a property through your pension.
