The UK Overseas Investment Market

The UK property market presents some of the best opportunities for both UK and overseas investors. Boasting one of the world’s largest economies and a high performing property market in a number of key cities, it comes as no surprise that so many people are drawn to the UK market.

In our overseas investors guide you’ll find detailed information on the current appeal of overseas investment in the UK. Here’s a look at three points covered in this guide.

In the first three months of 2019, property portal Placebuzz noted that 6.2% of all UK property searches had come from overseas buyers, presenting a significant increase since 2016. This reveals the overall interest and appeal of UK property and the country's popularity when it comes to overseas investment.

The Best UK Property Types

Certain property types are more popular for buy to let investments in the UK. Residential and student properties are the most common, and present a wide range of benefits for overseas investors to consider. 

For investors looking to get started with the UK market but want to find opportunities with the lowest prices, off-plan property investment is worth looking into. Off-plan properties are offered at below-market rates by developers and also come with other benefits that can help you with your venture.

The Top-Performing UK Cities

Many cities in the UK offer some fantastic opportunities for investment and are attracting a lot of attention from overseas buyers. Those in the North West region, including Liverpool and Manchester, have some of the best house price growth in recent years with predictions for further impressive growth.

The ease of Overseas Investment

Aside from the potential for an impressive return on investment, another major benefit and appealing factor of overseas investment lies with the ease of buying a property in the UK compared to a lot of other countries.
