The buy-to-let revolution has been and gone. The years of reliable year-on-year house price increases have ended. Increased taxation and regulation have benefitted larger landlords at the expense of smaller investors, and it’s now harder than ever to build a buy-to-let portfolio in the traditional way.

But help is at hand. The current rising market is small-scale property development, and it’s the fastest way to create substantial profits through property. Whether you’re looking to grow a portfolio or start one from scratch, or you’re simply looking to create wealth and financial security, small-scale development projects and permitted development rights have many benefits:

  • Require a far lower capital investment than buy-to-let investing
  • Can produce six-figure profits within 24 months
  • Utilise new permitted development rights that minimise planning risk and mean that commercial lending is readily available
  • There is a huge (and increasing) number of commercial properties that can be converted
  • Stock is plentiful – these empty properties are out there NOW, ready to be converted
  • There’s a massive demand for the end product, new homes
  • It’s a highly leveraged strategy – you act as the CEO, not the project manager
  • Projects can comfortably be undertaken in your spare time
  • No technical knowledge or previous development experience is required
  • The market is actively looking for new developers

And 2023 could prove to be the PERFECT time to get into development, as commercial property prices look set to fall.
