Your exit plan

Some people call it an exit strategy. Before you start investing in UK property, you have to remember that property is a fairly illiquid asset. In simple terms, that means that property cannot be sold quickly. Most property experts recommend keeping property as a medium term investment and holding it a minimum of five years.

One has to be mindful that house prices can go up and down. If the rental demand in a certain area or sector changes, the reduced demand could mean that the rental returns could be lower than what one paid for the property. If one has to sell quickly - when the economy is unstable you may also achieve a lower sales price. It is always worth having a bit of extra saving so that you don’t need to sell in a rush.
