Sustained property price growth
UK property values have generally doubled every decade. This is because it is one of the world’s most densely populated countries, has one of the strongest economies and has a housing supply shortfall expected to reach one million properties by 2022.
Large & well established property market
The UK has the third biggest real estate sector globally, with a higher value per capita than all other leading property markets. As a large and well established property market, it is low-risk, with stable economic conditions and low interest rates driving investment.
There is currently a critical undersupply of housing nationwide, which leads to longer tenancy agreements and higher yields.
Trusted investment environment
The UK is recognised by JLL – a Fortune 500 company – as the most transparent global real estate market.
As one of the world’s leading economies, the UK has clearly-defined property ownership laws, a trusted legal system and a favourable taxation structure. Its influence on the global economy also protects both UK and overseas investors.
Popular with overseas investors
Overseas investment contributes substantially to the UK property market, peaking at 80% of total investment in some years.
And it’s not predominantly residential property that attracts interest; a lot of the smart money is going into the Purpose Built Student Accommodation and Serviced Apartment sectors, which are the fastest growing in the market.
A large proportion of UK property investment is heading to regional towns and cities, with investors seeking the higher yields that are available outside London.
