Investors turn to property

According to a survey issued in June 2005, only 3% of investors are willing to rely on their pension for security, instead favouring their property to provide future wealth. The research was commissioned by The Property Investor and Homebuyer Show North and revealed that buy-to-let investors' confidence is high, with 75% intending to gain their financial security from their investments and 12% relying on their own home.

When questioned about the property market, almost 50% of serious investors said they believed it would remain stable over the next twelve months, with 22% predicting a moderate rise. This is encouraging news for anyone interested in buying-to-let, especially with the arrival in 2006 of Self-Invested Personal Pensions, which will make it possible to invest pension funds in buy-to-let property, both here and overseas.
