Welcome to this week's property investment news. Hear about our new product: UK Residential Property Fund. I'll explain how this fund is accessible to all investors and how it will benefit you together with buy-to-let market.
Property prices continue to rise as supply and demand play catch up. What happens when supply finally reaches demand? Should inflation rise to 4% as suggested by Prof Blanflower? What are the benefits for investors of buy-to-let? Find out why I agree with him but only because I'm a property investor myself.
Other good news… interest rates have dropped for higher loan to value mortgages. We're starting to see the market easing, all at a slow pace but a way forward and we'll hopefully see the buy-to-let market follow.

Which side are you on?
