How to Turn Your Property to a Regular Income Source

Syndicate Investments

A syndicate is a cluster of people who own property mutually while paying a property management company (Ex: Assured Properties) to manage it and deal with the tenants and maintenance. Syndicates generally operate multiple properties, and are usually able to negotiate discounts on property purchase by buying in bulk (for example, purchasing a whole block of flats rather than one unit). This helps you to get involved in the property market at a lower initial cost and reduces the risk factor.

Property Funds

These are associations that sell, buy and manage property, in which you can invest. You don’t have to bother about the daily business proceedings, which is usually taken care according to pre-agreed terms. You can join a property fund through an independent financial adviser. Funds are regulated by the FSA.

Property Renovation for Profits

This is a practical path for people who are well versed about the market with the right skills and the perfect contacts to improve/develop a property quickly and sell it. This is the ideal option when you are sure that the property prices are not going to rise, Example: recession. These kinds of investors are proficient in renovating semi-ruined or derelict properties and bring them back into the market.

Property Trading
