Managed well, property investment can offer exceptional returns. With stock markets around the world in turmoil, pension funds seeing fund values fluctuating, and with the increased likelihood of pension shortfalls, a growing number of people are turning to property investment. As experienced investors, UK Property Agents believe property continues to represent a safe investment - providing the risks are minimised.
We believe the UK Buy-to-Let (BTL) property sector will continue to grow and become increasingly profitable owing to:
- A shortage of new homes being built
- An increase in demand due to social-economic influences
- Increasing divorce rates and an increase in single person households
- A more transient work force
- First time buyers not being able to get on the "property ladder" because of increased property prices
- A substantial increase in life expectancy
- Leaving Europe will see property prices rise as investors from Asia, United States, India, Africa will view the UK as one of the best countries to invest in.
Based on all the above factors, we think TODAY is an great time to invest in the property market
Compounding is the year on year growth of investments and is widely considered the strongest investment tool. A property purchase allows investors to maximise leverage; the investor typically only has to invest a small proportion of the investment from his own pocket - the balance being funded via a mortgage.
Most traditional investments, (such as shares), require the investor to have liquid funds to the full value of the investment. In property, the investor can put the minimum deposit down BUT gain maximum leverage.
We offer an outstanding diversity of investment opportunities across the UK, giving investors the option of developing their portfolios or making further profits through reselling. Each geographical area in which we offer investment opportunities must demonstrate a strong rental market and sufficient rental yield. The locality must be seen as offering potential significant capital growth.
Our team of professional property finders, finance brokers, solicitors and accountants are all extremely knowledgeable in the field of property investments, (and many are seasoned investors themselves), and will help you to maximise your profits.
