    Excellent experience. Jack was exceptionally responsive, professional and most importantly patient. Jack understands the journey from both the buyer's and seller's perspective and is honest and realistic regarding sales and pricing whilst negotiating the best deal for his clients . Jack knows the market on the river roads and surrounding area very well. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to sell in West Putney.

    Walked into James Anderson looking for a rental property. The agent who helped us was called Miles Morgan who was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Miles was able to help us find a property to our exact specifications on the same day which we put down an immediate deposit down.

    We recently rented our property using James Anderson. Leigh was fantastic - responding quickly to my questions and making sure the whole process ran smoothly. He has guided us in legal and practical aspects of becoming tenants. Leigh went over and above what was expected in order to secure us a tenant we could feel comfortable with. I would not hesitate to use James Anderson again in the future or to recommend their services to family and friends.

Investing in property? Here are our top tips!

With high demand for property driving up house prices and rents across the country, now is a great time for new or established landlords to ride the wave by investing. But where should you start, and how can you improve your chances of a respectable return? Read on to find out.

Choose your location

Ideally, it’s sensible to invest in an area within a manageable radius of your current location. This will allow you to visit the property easily, complete any necessary improvements, or keep an eye on contractors. If you live nearby, you’re also more likely to know which streets and neighbourhoods are the most desirable, helping you identify golden opportunities as soon as they arise.

Once you’ve settled on a general area, spend some time researching the current market conditions, including the average local rent and sale price for the type of property you’re interested in buying.

Hint: A trusted local agent like ourselves can advise you on this.

Identify potential ways to add value

While searching for the perfect rental, consider ways you could improve a property to make it more appealing to your ideal tenant. Could you add an extra bedroom or a home office by converting the loft? Is the property worth renovating to bring it in line with more high-end lets? This is where your market research will come into its own.

Other ways to increase profit may include selling off additional land a tenant won’t need or splitting up a building into apartments. Just make sure you obtain advice from a relevant professional before you invest.

Decide on funding

Yes, opportunities are endless for cash buyers, but if you have the minimum deposit (usually 25%), a buy-to-let mortgage can help you achieve your dreams. The maximum you can borrow is linked to the rental income you expect to receive, which should be 25–30% higher than your mortgage payment. Specialist lenders may also provide a bridging loan to cover the cost of renovations while you get the property up-to-scratch.

Beyond these top tips, our property experts are always on hand to help.
