Buy-to-let best long term investment
A comparative analysis, sponsored by lender Landbay, revealed that buy-to-let was the best performing long term investment when compared against equities, gilts, commercial property and cash. The results showed that over the last 18 years, £1,000 invested in an average buy-to-let property purchased with a 75% loan-to-value mortgage in the final quarter of 1996 would have been worth £14,897 by the final quarter of 2014. This translates to a compound annual return of 16.2%.
