United Kingdom Property Investment For Sale
"Investment by overseas buyers in the UK and particularly London continues to climb."
The United Kingdom may be a small country in terms of land mass but it encompasses a myriad of diverse geographical landscapes and regional cultural variations. From the highlands of Scotland and the hills of Wales to the beaches of the West Country and the multicultural diversity of its major cities, the UK is a country of variety and vibrancy.
For many the capital London, with its historical buildings, galleries, theatres, financial centre and Royal associations epitomises everything that is British. London also continues to lead the way when it comes to property prices in the UK – far outstripping any other area in terms of demand, price increases and rental returns. Foreign property investment in London has pushed prices to record levels and as one of the most prestigious and popular capital cities in the world, the London property market looks set to continue to appreciate for the next few years. With planning laws strict it means that it is expensive and difficult to add to the capital’s housing stock and with plentiful jobs and an excellent infrastructure many will continue to invest in what is considered a safe haven in property terms.
Outside London the market varies considerably from area to area but in general terms the UK property sector continues to be a safe and robust investment option based on the simple economics of strong demand. Great Britain is a small island with a big population and a stagnant construction industry, which is creating a significant lack of supply.
