Interesting but statistics don't tell the whole truth !!!!

There is no indication of the parameters used.......

A smart property in a good area, near a train station with good road links that's not in the top 100......will trump most property in the top 10.

Conversely a run down property in a top 10 area won't hold a candle to a smart property near a large employer.

It's all smoke and mirrors and should be viewed with caution.

The stats are no surprise to me and I shall ignore them all. 😁 Much too random and lacking any detail.  Right now in my location you could let out a large shed due to the lack of rental properties available.

There's something factual in that list.

Not nowt in Wales. We might've expected Cardiff, Swansea or even Monmouthshire to get a look in all things being equal. But they're not.

Top Buy to Let properties ? Top for what ?

* Availability of property ?

* People seeking accomodation ?

* Lowest rents ?

* Levels of satisfaction ?

* Best landlords ?

I don't understand what it's supposed to be telling me.......can someone help ?

I would have to guess on this.

Maybe best return for investment, so rent over value.

Maybe potential for equity growth, so a journalist with a crystal ball, or maybe he has two clanging together.

I can state it isn't based on the best place to be a charitable LL, running the business for the benefit of T's and Gov't, as that would be Wales.
