The Buy-To-Let boom has only proved further how Britain has become gripped by property investment, where more and more people come to the realisation that property is a lucrative industry. It has significantly outperformed all major asset classes in recent years, with a total annual returns from Buy-To-Let reaching 12% in 2015 or £21,988 in absolute terms.
