House price stability is at the top of the wish-list for most buy-to-let investors this Christmas, according to new research.

The latest Young Index results report that more than a third of property investors listed more stable market values at the top of their agenda.

A wider mortgage choice also featured highly, with 28 per cent of respondents claiming that this was most important to them.

Further findings from the survey revealed that one in five buy-to-let investors intend to hold on to their properties for the next 15 years or more.

Meanwhile, 33 per cent are set to snap up additional houses in London over the next year, with the outlook for prices in the capital three times higher than the rest of the UK.

Indeed, this was reflected in the research, with only eight per cent of investors intending to buy UK residential property outside of London in the next 12 months.

According to Cluttons' outlook for house values in the capital, there could be a number of "fantastic opportunities"to be had for investors in 2009.ADNFCR-2002-ID-18946897-ADNFCR
