Description of Dorset
The phrase “There's buckets to be made at the English seaside” is one that most UK investors are familiar with. It's a point illustrated perhaps no better than in Dorset. The overwhelming majority of investor interest directed the way of Dorset is focused along the county's coastal region, where the right properties are netting buy-to-let landlords rent yields as high as 8 per cent gross. Weymouth has a year-round renter's market that's stronger than ever, while nearby Dorchester has also found its way onto the maps of investors over recent years. Even factoring in the inevitable winter lulls, coastal holiday homes across Dorset have the potential to be extremely lucrative in both buy-to-let and resale stakes alike.
