Property Investment in West BerkshireInvesting in anything can be daunting so we’re here to make it easy. Anyone who has made investments over the years may have experienced a serious downturn in returns and is almost powerless to do anything about it.

With WestBerks Properties you get professional advice and assistance from the beginning and throughout your relationship with us.

Clients frequently ask us "Is this a good time to buy properties?" and we have a very simple but clear answer...

There has been a significant correction in house pricing offering buyers a better purchase value. The Buy to Let market is set to grow further, as it has become much more difficult for those people trying to buy for the first time to obtain sufficient deposits to finance residential purchase, but who still want their independence from the family home and are now turning to rental. This in turn further gives a more steady flow of income.

With property prices steady and more people concerned with the general state of their pensions, investments and other savings, there could not be a better time for you to take those first steps into property investment or even consider increasing your current portfolio of properties for long term investment.

  3. You need to move away for work or other reason but do not want to sell your existing home

Mortgage required £120,000
Cost of mortgage £500 per month (on a 5% average rate) interest only

What Landlords say about our Services...

" I am putting in writing all that I would state verbally and feel compelled to tell all those and more about the professional, knowledgeable and courteous service shown to me when I decided to rent out my home.

I felt completely safe in the knowledge that my home would be cared for and protected taking an awful lot of worry from myself, not only did you find me a good tenant but managed the renovations to maximise the rental potential."

Dr C. Pandian

"They [WestBerks Properties Ltd] are always courteous and if not available immediately will contact back very quickly.

Their fee structure is transparent, they charge me a monthly commission with no other disbursements or admin charges that other agents seem to levy, and I rely on their integrity to manage any maintenance event knowing they will check carefully first.

I have no hesitation in recommending them to any experienced landlord like myself or someone considering becoming a landlord."

Mr D. Langford

"The service that WestBerks Properties provides has been personal and honest. They have always worked for our best interests and vet potential tenants to ensure our property is looked after.

They provided a personalised service and kept in touch regularly throughout the process of choosing and moving in tenants. Since our tenants moved in, Martin has been on the end of the phone for any queries we have had. He responds quickly, listens to what we need and provides a highly professional service.

We are due to let out another property and will be using WestBerks Properties to do this as we are so happy with the way they are managing our first property."
