Is the London housing bubble about to burst or is it a supply shortage that will continue to grow?
The debate over the world’s greatest city – London - rages on. London is not new to the title or limelight, the title of a world city rests easy on its shoulders, it’s been that way for centuries now. Through boom and bust the capital rarely stutters when it comes to consistent returns on capital and ease of rent.
Of late the talk of property bubbles and runaway house prices has returned to the market, as investors I have to say that it’s a welcome change and part of a normally functioning property market; but what does it mean for Asian investors who are seeing their local property market easing?
Why it pays to ignore the headlines and research the detail
London is a city that caters for all. It is a historic city, and yet a modern city. It is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world with a wealth of leisure activities, whether the aim is to rest and relax or get the adrenaline flowing.
Plus four areas of Birmingham that savvy investors are buying
Birmingham is a city deep in transformation, and a fantastic choice for property investors seeking exceptional potential for rental income and capital gain. Fundamentals that have created this potential include:
Where property investment potential is rising as fast as improving lifestyle
As host of the 2022 Commonwealth Games, Birmingham is about to come under the international spotlight. Tourist numbers will rise, and eyes will be on the effect that massive regeneration in Birmingham is having on the city and wider region. However, Birmingham is already recognised on the international stage as a great place to live. The city is regularly applauded for the quality of life it offers residents and has recently been named in the top 50 cities in the world, and behind only London and Edinburgh in the UK.
Isn’t it time you ignored the noise and invested with the fundamentals?
We’ve read so much about how overseas investors have deserted the London market because of Brexit and two years of political volatility, that we thought the strong and consistent demand from our foreign investors was the exception that proves the rule.
Should you follow the billions of pounds being invested in Birmingham’s remodelling?
With the population expected to grow by more than 15% in the next two decades and the local economy booming, serious property investors are buying in Birmingham for its potential to produce above-average rental yield and capital growth. Investors here are also benefitting from the billions being invested in the regeneration of Birmingham, with infrastructure, commercial, retail and residential all benefitting. Here’s a taste of this massive investment.
Manchester is a dynamic city with bags of investment potential
Our clients already knew what Manchester City Council recently confirmed: Manchester is one of Europe’s fastest-growing city economies. As we’ve been saying for a couple of years now, the city’s economic growth is the power behind the strong growth in jobs and increase in population – and this is fuelling demand for homes in and around the city. Great news for property investors and our prediction is that Manchester is likely to stay a property hotspot for some time to come.
It’s time to ignore the experts who got it so wrong and invest in London
Hey, I want to let you into a secret. There’s a city in the UK that looks ripe for property investors to plunder. Yet it has been largely overlooked, and average house prices there have stagnated over the last 12 months. What makes me confident about the potential to profit from long-term property investment in this ‘forgotten’ city? Here are just a few of the reasons:
Another confidence booster for property investors in the Northern Powerhouse
Channel 4 has chosen Leeds as the location for its national headquarters, beating strong competition from as many as 30 other UK cities. The move promises to bring more than 300 new jobs to Leeds and support up to 3,000 production jobs in the region.
A new client, Scott, spoke to me a week or so ago and asked about a property as a retirement income generator. He’d been told by his financial advisor that an annuity would provide the best and safest income in retirement. A friend of his had said that he’d be better off putting his money into buy-to-let property. Being an intelligent kind of guy, he wanted to investigate further before making a decision.
