43. Housing - Buy to Let

43. Housing - Buy to Let

Continuing our series on housing, here we discuss the net return to the investor after all the costs and taxes have been considered.

The four major drivers for understanding the Luxembourg Buy-to-Let market are:

- Gross rental yield (not very high)
- Property appreciation (has been very high - will it continue apace?)
- Leverage the use of your deposit money
- Tax incentives

A new law came in this year so buy-to-let investors need to put down a 20% deposit.

My guests, as in Housing- How to Buy, my last podcast, are Pierre Clement, managing director of Nexvia, and Vincent Quillé, managing director of Nexfin.

They advise:

- buy your own home first, if you can
- buy a buy-to-let which is easy to sell on (1 or 2 bed apartment or such like, with good access to town).
- buy off-plan or a very old house which needs to be redone.

You can get more information on how to buy with our RTL Series "Luxembourg Insider"
