A new survey gauging brokers' expectations of the buy-to-let market has painted a positive outlook for the coming year.
Overall, the majority of brokers surveyed believe the number of new landlords will increase this year and that very few professional landlords will be looking to sell part of their stock in 2011.
While there may still be some way to go before a full recovery is seen, the signs are that the buy-to-let market is in a buoyant mood.
The Mortgage Works asked brokers about their experiences in 2010 and their expectations for the buy-to-let market in 2011. The survey focused on first-time landlords, professional landlords, buy-to-let products and the market as a whole.
