Southern England is a great place to sell houses and develop property

Earn more from a Hampshire buy-to-let

London is the still the king of rental prices. There is nowhere within the UK that has higher rental fees than the capital.

But, if you are looking to capitalise on your buy-to-let investment, you could be better off looking to the west of the city.

Berkshire and Hampshire towns have some of the most reliable transport links to London.

This is why they offer some of the highest yields of rental property within the South of England.
