Hi, I would like to ask your advice on BTL properties. I have contacted a few property search companies and I need to make a decision based on the following options such as buying a home in the USA, buying one in the UK at 20% BMV, buy a local property that I know. Which should I choose?

Thanks for your question – in a nutshell we’re worried!
Have you completed a property investment brief? Understanding what you want and by when from property is essential and without this, it’s impossible to make a decision. Have any of these companies asked you what you want from your investment? Have they given guarantees or money back if it doesn’t deliver? What risk are they taking? We provide a property investment brief for free, just email: email@example.com
Secondly NEVER buy a property without seeing it! So if you aren’t going to the states or can’t look at the BMVs, run away.
You’ll see that the people above though they were getting a good deal, but sadly nothing has happened.
Investing in property requires weeks of work, time and effort and if you can’t spare this, you are probably better off investing via property funds with companies that are registered with the FSA
