For buy to let investors the past 20 years have been good, the previous crash around 2008 now seems more like a slight dip. House prices in Wolverhampton are now at an all time high, things have changed for Investors however, the government has been tightening the legislation for landlords for some time and investment property prices are high.

Are the good times really over for buy to let landlords I am not so sure, I think the next few years could be unusually rewarding. If there are less buy to let landlords entering the market and certain portfolio landlords are reducing their housing stock, then sooner or later more competitively priced investment properties, will come to market.

Lenders have to lend to stay in business and because the buy to let market has shrunk slightly, they are now constantly improving their mortgage products to entice investors.
