UK investors could be looking to make the most of the recent fall in house prices to enter into the buy-to-let property market, a source suggests.

Recent reports have claimed that the market has now reached a stage where prices are beginning to "bottom out", with suggestions that there is growing demand for houses.

This includes interest from investors looking to make a "strategic decision"to take advantage of bargain prices, with bricks and mortar still proving a safer long-term alternative to investing money in stocks and shares, the report suggests.

"The buoyant rental market offers an excellent prospect for those looking for their next rental opportunity or those looking to invest for their pension,"said Nigel Palmer, managing director of Linden Homes Western.

Now was an ideal time to buy to let and then "sit back and reap the rewards", he added.

Figures released by Nationwide last week revealed that the decline in house prices had begun to slow, with a drop of just 0.4 per cent in November compared to a 1.3 per cent fall during the previous month.ADNFCR-2002-ID-18906233-ADNFCR
