Today is my last day as editor of Landlord Today. Following more than four years in the role, I have decided to move on to pastures new.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with the team at Angels Media on Landlord Today, as well Estate Agent Today, Letting Agent Today, and Property Investor Today, the latter of which I helped to launch several years ago.
Together, we have watched readership levels surge across the four titles, with the volume of unique visitors to Landlord Today, for instance, having increased by up to almost 700% since I took over as editor in April 2016.
Despite a challenging time for the market, characterised by tax and regulatory changes, not to mention Covid-19, investment in buy-to-let continues to outperform most major asset classes, as demand for properties in the private rental sector grows, and that is why it is important that you are kept up-to-date with all the latest news, views and trends across the private rented sector.
With savers receiving poor returns from banks and building societies, there is no doubt that thousands of people will continue to turn to residential property as a means of supplementing their income, supported by record-low mortgage borrowing rates, growing demand from renters and stable yields, as buy-to-let consolidates itself as the investment of choice for many investors.
As a freelance property journalist, you may continue to come across some of my articles elsewhere, but for now, it is goodbye.
