This week on Ask Rob & Rob, we’ve got two cracking questions.

First up we have Ariel who reckons she might have found a link between prices and yields.

She has three properties and is looking at investing in her fourth. She’s been buying properties at the rate of one a year for the last few years and is now looking to get a high rental yield in return.

Ariel bought her properties for around £80,000 and has been getting £500 per calendar month in rent through single lets. This year she’s decided to diversify and spend double the money, £160,000 in an attempt to get about £1,000 in rent but has found it surprisingly difficult.

So, do we think the more you spend the harder it is to get the high rental yields?

The second question comes from Alex who wants to know how a new housing minister will affect property investors.

Will anything change? Will those changes be positive or negative for investors?
