A reduced national deficit and an economic plan that seems to be working are the latest positive elements in the highly-evolved UK property invesment market that’s showing signs of sustained recovery. With the rise of hotel investments and an a range of buy to let property for sale in all major towns and cities, the UK now has a wide range of opportunities available to investors.
Buy to let property has experienced a surge in popularity in recent years, and the UK's property investment market has attracted a lot of attention from overseas investors. In many experts' eyes, the high demand for student and buy to let property for sale in the UK from both domestic and international buyers bolsters opinions that the UK market is among the world's strongest. High returns, which are guaranteed for an initial period in many new developments, are a key factor in attracting international funds.
Since the financial crisis, both student and buy to let property has become an extremely popular sector with investors thanks to stability and low supply not only in the UK but throughout the world. In 2007, global investment in the student property market stood at just £2.1 billion - yet today, it has more than doubled to a record £4.5 billion, and this is expected to keep rising with the British, Japanese, American, Australian and German markets proving especially popular with property investors.
The momentum of the sector does not show any signs of slowing. University applications have been consistently rising for some years. Across the first four months of this year, Britain saw 17,000 student beds traded across the country, racking up a total value of £950,000 million. With multiple leading universities drawing students into the country, the student accommodation investment market is distinctly undersupplied. The result is high demand and a willingness on the part of tenants to pay attractive rents.
