A portal dedicated to investment and buy-to-let property has launched this week.
Buy2Let.com, which describes itself as the first of its kind, will be sourcing properties from agents Northwood, Leaders, Aspen Woolf and Stirling Ackroyd, among others.
The portal says that over the coming weeks it will be populated with thousands of property investment listings. Yesterday, on launch, the portal had a total of 87 listings.
Buy2Let.com also has an exclusive auction partner, Bamboo Auctions, offering live online auctions of investment properties.
“We are delighted to launch the first and only B2B property listings portal dedicated to the buy-to-let market. Buy2Let.com is designed to be the perfect marketing partner for agents to reach investors directly, and encouragingly, it seems our panel of forward-thinking early adopters already recognise us as such,” says Martin Wilkinson, the portal’s founder.
He says that the website aims to cater to the needs of agents who don’t have time to dedicate to the investment market and that existing portals are designed solely to sell to the owner-occupier market.
“Buy2Let.com provides the crucial pieces of information that investors need to make a purchasing decision – uniquely, the portal allows them to search for and identify opportunities by annual rental yield, as well as categorising each listing as vacant, instant rental – or tenanted, and HMOs,” he adds.
Wilkinson says he aims to provide agents with an unrivalled direct market outlet for genuine buy-to-let investment properties, and a dedicated resource of properties and market analysis for investors.
