Do you want financial security in retirement? How about reducing your hours or retiring when you are ready rather than when you are told to? If you do then this book is for you. Don’t believe the doom and gloom merchants who think property investment is dead. It is alive and thriving for those who develop property portfolios in an educated and informed way. We are all living longer and for now that means that we will be retired for longer. As it stands many people in the United Kingdom do not have a retirement pension and many of those who do will find that it may not pay out enough to retire financially secure. Recent changes introduced by the government such as auto-enrolment and increased retirement age are not going to be enough for the majority of people. Then there are those who will opt out of auto-enrolment and the self-employed! For those who are auto-enrolled into a defined contribution pension scheme, they have no idea what the end benefit is going to be because it will depend on how the money is invested. A buy-to-let property pension can provide an alternative or an additional pension pot for anyone who is prepared to take a sensible approach to entering the market.
This book is for those people who would like to take more control over their retirement and have a lot more certainty about what that means in real terms. Having invested in a property portfolio for her own retirement, the author is able to provide enough information for you to make an informed decision. Property investment for a retirement pension makes good sense as property prices increase over the long term and rents will increase too. This book does not claim to be a get rich quick scheme but it does provide a considered approach to investing in something that has withstood the test of time historically and is likely to do so in the future. We British love property and it is an area that anyone can invest in. Whether you are 20 or 60, you can invest in property and if you invest wisely and do your sums, you can rest assured that you will be able to retire comfortably when the time comes.
