Question about Below Market Value Properties

Buying property for investment purposes comes with a risk, as with any investment. However, property is one of the safest investments you can make, especially if you are  buying Below Market Value (BMV). By buying Below The Market Value, you purchase property at a discount of the open market value, meaning you have instant equity from day one, which reduces risk.

Investing in property should not emotive, and you should invest in an area that helps achieve your property objectives. This will vary, depending on whether you are seeking high yields, capital growth, or a property to refurbish and sell. Either way, you should ensure you complete thorough due diligence, and make sure the property you are purchasing is right for you. We at BMV can help guide you.

Typically, you will require 25% of the purchase price as a deposit, along with approximately £1,000 legal fees, 2 – 5% of the purchase price for stamp duty and approximately £5000.00 finders fee.

You may also need some funds available to refurbish your property if it requires work.

Now– is the right time to invest in property. The UK is a very popular Island with an increasing population and a massive housing shortage. This huge demand and limited supply mean that while property prices do fluctuate annually house prices continue to trend upwards. 

There are many benefits to investing in property:

Leverage – you can  buy an asset worth much more than the funds you have available, using a mortgage or loan.

Forced Appreciation – You can add value to your property to generate equity. This is can be achieved by a simple refurbishment, or a full renovation or conversion. You can then hold or sell the property. 

Rental Income -You can  let out your property for a monthly income. 

Capital Appreciation – .  The housing market generally trends upwards so as well as a rental income you can benefit from capital growth. 

These are just a few benefits of investing in property.

Here are some of the risks to be aware of when looking to invest in property:

Property Price fluctuation

Although over the  long term, property prices tend to increase, in the short term the market can fluctuate. If you’re looking at investing in property over a short term, you should be aware of this risk.


If you are holding a property for rental income, there are times when your property may be unoccupied. With no income coming in, this will affect your yield and your cashflow. It is important therefore, to always have a cash buffer, and to save money monthly to cover void periods.
