Accidental landlords start to sell

Over the last year the number of rented properties has gone through the roof thanks to house prices tumbling, people were taking every opportunity of this price tumble to create extra income by letting properties. Now that the housing market is starting to stabilise all the accidental landlords are deciding it is time to sell.

For regular landlords this has got to be good news as an increase in demand will push rental prices up. Estate agents have reported a six per cent rise in landlords instructing them to sell their properties.

Landlords were facing a struggle as the rental market was flooded and this was causing a reduction in rent prices just to keep the property occupied.
