You have a couple of options when buying your next property? Do you step out of your comfort zone and try something different or do you keep on doing what you know best? With so many different types of properties in different locations, each suitable for different types of tenants; you may find it beneficial, after seeking advice to have a mixture of property types in your portfolio. Alternatively you could specialize in one market or location? Perhaps you want to become known as the go-to-landlord in your local university town. By sticking to what you know and buying similar kinds of property you may also be able to take advantage of deals when it comes to bulk buying things like paint, flooring, furnishings and bathroom and kitchen fittings. Whatever you decide, it is a good idea to talk to your Aldermore adviser first.
