The hardest hit over the past few years has been the foundation of any healthy property market, first time buyer with as many as 800,000 reported as having been priced out of the market since 2007.

Naturally falling prices and continued low interest rates are good news for the market, but the 25% plus deposit requirements imposed by lenders is where the majority of potential buyers are struggling. In short the demand is there, the ability to finance is not. This is not only true for the first time buyer market but also the buy-to-let sector where similar restrictions are applied.

The difference is that there may be signs of light at the end of the tunnel for the buy-to-let market with some big names coming back into the market and some great deals available for those that can afford them and qualify. Paragon, a leading provider into the buy-to-let finance market has not only reported a 32% rise in profits but also indicated that it plans on lending an estimated £1 Billion to buy-to-let professionals.

You can find out more regarding property and how to finance it at the Tigrent Great Minds Conference on March 26th. Featuring Rightmove Director Miles Shipman & Secret Millionaire property developer Kevin Green plus two other speakers, it promises to be a great opportunity to learn more about successful property investing.
