Do you want to invest in UK buy to let property? UK property investment continues to be the strongest and most reliable investment market, providing investors with consistently high returns. Put simply, people always need somewhere to live. The UK property sector therefore continues to flourish and perform well compared with other investment sectors.
Two Different Returns on Property Investments
Property is one of the only asset classes to offer two different returns on investment – enhancing its stability and reliability. Investors receive consistent rental returns provided every month during the time a tenant is residing in the property. In the long term, investors additionally receive capital appreciation.
Due to steadily increasing house prices in the UK as well as a vast number of multi million pound regeneration projects currently underway, investors can expect reasonable capital appreciation on top of their rental income when the time comes to sell their UK property.
Supply and Demand in The UK Property Market
The UK property market has recorded year on year growth in terms of house prices, fuelled by an undersupply of available homes. With a lack of affordable housing stock and an increasing number of people looking to rent as a long term alternative to buying, the Private Rented Sector (PRS) is growing at an unprecedented rate.
Research by Knight Frank has revealed that £3.1 billion was invested in the UK Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) market in 2016, more than double the levels seen in 2013 and 2014.
Additionally, in their recent UK student accommodation report, Cushman & Wakefield postulate an average headline rental growth of 2.9% between 2016/17 and 2017/18.
In all markets, however, PBSA remains undersupplied, so there are now huge opportunities across the UK for investors.
