Selling a Buy To Let Portfolio
If you own two or more buy-to-let properties, you might be thinking about selling this portfolio, but there are some key steps to consider as you search for a speedy and competitive offer.
Your top questions when selling a buy to let portfolio
✅ What does it mean to sell a buy-to-let property portfolio?
A portfolio means that you own at least two or more buy-to-let properties, and these are houses or flats that you purchased but rent out to others for living in, and you’ve never used these properties as a personal residence. If you are the owner of such a portfolio, there could be several explanations that you have for wanting to sell all of these properties at once.
✅ Can I sell my buy-to-let portfolio if my properties currently have tenants?
Yes, just because you already have tenants at one or more of the buy-to-let properties within your portfolio, this does not mean that you’re not allowed to sell those homes. But your choices for selling will be restricted, typically to either asking the tenants to leave, finding a buyer willing to keep those tenants, or pursuing legal action to evict tenants that do not want to leave.
✅ Why might someone want to make an offer for a buy-to-let portfolio?
One of the main reasons why someone could want to purchase your portfolio is if they believe that the properties are a strong investment opportunity that could produce a consistent stream of income. A buy-to-let property portfolio might also be particularly appealing to certain types of buyers, such as property developers or quick home buying companies like LDN Properties.
✅ Which factors could make selling a buy-to-let portfolio more difficult?
If several of the properties within your portfolio have structural flaws or other problems, this could make it harder to attract buyers as they will be concerned about the money, they’ll need to spend on fixing those issues as the next owner. Property portfolios are also expensive and therefore you’ll likely have a reduced number of buyers that may be interested.
✅ What are my options to find a buyer for a buy-to-let portfolio?
The four typical methods for selling a buy-to-let property portfolio are doing so an auction, using the services of an estate agent, selling without any third party help or selling to a quick buyer like LDN Properties. Some of these methods have notable drawbacks, such as having to pay auctioneers commission, whilst others have benefits like quick buyers not charging any fees.
✅ Will I have to pay commission when selling a buy-to-let portfolio?
Only if you choose to sell your property portfolio through a third party such as an auctioneer or an estate agent, because they will charge you a fee based on a percentage of your portfolio’s final sale price, and this will be subtracted from the eventual proceeds. But you won’t have to pay commission if selling to a no-fee quick buyer or selling without any assistance.
✅ What's the swiftest method to sell my buy-to-let property portfolio?
Usually, the most rapid choice to sell a buy-to-let portfolio or any other type of property is by reaching out to a quick buyer. These companies, for example LDN Properties, can complete the buying process within a few short weeks. The three other top methods for selling – using an estate agent, an auctioneer or selling alone – can all take several months or even longer.
