About the Buy to Let rental sector

Scotland is facing a chronic housing shortage. More houses need to be built – an estimated 30,000 a year in fact however only 16,270 properties were built in Scotland last year. There is a particular need for more affordable starter homes to meet growing first time buyer and buy to let landlord demand. Unless the government invests in this the issue will continue to worsen.

Rental sector to increase

The Private Rented Sector is now the biggest form of tenure after home ownership, and it is predicted that growth is set to treble over the next 5 years. Tenants are choosing to make rental properties their long term homes, and fewer people are considering buying their own home.  This is partly due to people not being able to get onto the housing ladder but is also partly due to tenants enjoying the flexibility that renting offers.  Scotland faces a huge demand from people wanting to rent, but has a chronic lack of supply.  Investment in the Private Rented Sector is therefore a sound investment choice for many. The Key Place's own market performance data confirms these trends and we readily advise on all investment decisions.

Tenants want flexibility

Tenants confirm their key priority for renting is flexibility. A recent Knight Frank survey showed that 52% choose a property close to work or their place of study; 30% state their main reason for moving is to upgrade to a nicer or bigger property; 38% of tenants have lived in 5 or more rental properties; most have relocated within a mile or so of their previous property; however 19% have moved over 60 miles to relocate for work or study. Overall a very large percentage choose to rent as it suits their lifestyle.
