    The UK buy to let market has been extremely popular over the last 20 years or so and continues to grow in popularity. However, are there signs that the UK market is now maturing? Are there any other worldwide buy to let markets which you would consider?

    Basically, is there still good value in the UK buy to let market compared to opportunities overseas?
  2. Matured? No. I would suggest that the UK buy to let market is taking a breather when you bear in mind stamp duty increases and the outcome of Brexit. However, no matter what happens in the short to medium term there will always be long-term demand for property in the UK. Therefore, I have no problems with long-term investment in correctly priced buy to let opportunities.

    The fact that the buy to let sector in the UK will continue to grow for many years to come suggests that the market has not fully matured. However, investors may need to be a little more selective with their investments in the future.
  4. Investing in employment hotspots has to be the way forward with the UK buy to let market. Projects such as HS2 can also have a major impact on property prices if you get in early enough.
