The Property Finance Expo will launch this year, designed to make the property finance sector better connected. Aimed at investors, developers, buy-to-let professionals and both accomplished and first time landlords, the show will take place on 15th September 2016 at Old Billingsgate in Central London.
The event will take a fresh new approach on the traditional landlord show, uniting a wide range of delegates, lenders, and providers of all types of property funding including high street banks, proving to be an invaluable resource for anyone looking to discuss property finance.
As well as providing networking opportunities in one of the most impressive conference facilities in the capital, the event will give businesses the chance to meet face to face with landlords, promoting their brands directly to their target market and creating invaluable business opportunities for both parties.
Front Events managing director James Prosser expands on the opportunities available at the event: “Property Finance Expo has been designed to serve the needs of the professional property investor and for those considering entering the market. Located in the square mile of the city, it will deliver presentations that will help landlords develop their portfolios and provide solutions, whilst keeping visitors abreast of this massively developing industry. At the show, you’ll be able to buy a property at the live auction, seek advice from advisers equipped to get the best deals for you and meet the companies actually open to fund your purchase – all in one day.”
Property expert, Kate Faulkner, concludes: “One of the main reasons buy-to-let can be a successful investment is because you can gear it through mortgage finance. Surprisingly, around 30 per cent of buy-to-let investors don’t take advantage of gearing, potentially limiting their returns at a time when costs of investing in property are going up. 2016 is a year when new and existing landlords need all the expert help they can get. Top of that list should be understanding the different ways to finance property purchases for the future.”
