Rental Yields: Investing in Buy-to-Let Property in the West of Scotland

The steady growth, stable conditions, and positive forecast of increasing sales values in the West of Scotland property market all bode well for buy-to-let investors. There’s great potential to generate healthy rental income and long-term capital gains for landlords investing in property in West of Scotland.

At Caledonia Bureau, we manage hundreds of local properties on behalf of our landlords and we see rental yields in local residential areas are consistently healthy, much higher than national average and better than the more expensive Glasgow. There’s an increasing number of tenants looking for quality properties in the West of Scotland, particularly in areas like Paisley, Dumbarton, and Clydebank.
