A blog written by letting agents in Bristol

When it comes to getting ready for investing in the property market, it takes more than a basic knowledge of the market and the right financing in place. More people are becoming property investors - but that doesn't mean that they're making any return on their Bristol property investment. Many investors will, regrettably, simply become busy fools - their investments will take over their daily life and they will probably end up losing money.

One tip I give to all my investor landlords is use a property investment model that's already proven: There's no need to reinvent the wheel with your property investment - simply use a proven model for your own investing. Make sure that the property investment model you use, however, is right for the type of investing you're geared up for. For example, you might want to have a long-term investment plan, increasing your financing every few years, renting our multiple high-quality properties, and outsourcing all management and day-to-day tasks to industry experts. Your investment model should reflect this, in terms of your involvement, the financing you put in place, the costs to build an expert team around you, and your overall exit plan.

Whether you're an established property investor with 1-3 properties in your portfolio and you're thinking about expanding your buy-to-let portfolio, or if you're a novice investor looking to take your first step into the world of property investment, you'll find the insight offered in this blog invaluable.
