The location of a property is key to the success of buy-to-let investors and landlords in the UK.

According to Assetz News, the area in which a home is situated remains particularly relevant to those looking to rent out their properties.

Emphasising the point, David Bates, business development manager at property firm Dandara, told the site that location was "everything".

"People keep buying properties below market value and there are some great deals but you've still got to do your homework on where you buy. It's all about location," he said.

Mr Bates advised that potential landlords should consider a number of factors before deciding on where to invest in a property.

These included the outlook for economic growth and population growth in the area, as well as employment opportunities.

Buying close to universities or in areas with good transport links would also help ensure the success of any buy-to-let venture, he suggested.

According to Linden Homes, the recent fall in house prices makes now "the ideal time" to buy for those looking to take advantage of the buoyant rental market.ADNFCR-2002-ID-18912345-ADNFCR
