Investors will have the chance to forge links with businesses involved in Norfolk’s buy-to-let property market at a major exhibition this year.
Businesses in the sector will be able to connect with more than 300 landlords, property investors and buy-to-let newcomers at the Buy To Let Expo on November 10, which takes place at Norwich City Football Club.
Run in association with EDP Homes24, the expo, which is the region’s largest property event of the year, has been organised by Invest Events and is being aimed at both established investors and those looking to invest in property for the first time.
Jon Taylor, director at Invest Events, said that despite the economic conditions, property remains a popular investment with many investors attracted by the reduction in prices since the credit crunch, lower interest rates, strong rental demand and few opportunities for returns in other investments.
“Having run investor networking events for the past two years, we saw that there was a strong demand from both established investors and those looking to invest in buy-to-let property for the first time for a large event that allowed them to connect with local businesses and to meet other investors who would share their knowledge,” he said.
“We aim to have a good representation of local businesses there who are active in the property services market.
“One of the keys to success in property is having the right professional team around you so, by bringing everyone together, I’m sure we can help both investors and businesses make valuable connections.”
Alongside the exhibitors, UK property expert guest speakers will also be sharing some of the secrets of their success, including Gill Fielding, who built a substantial property empire from scratch and recently featured on Channel Four’s Secret Millionaire programme and BBC’s The Apprentice: You’re Fired.
