    There are many reasons to look at property investment in the UK. One of the main ones has to be the ever-growing UK population, the struggle of first-time buyers and the ever increasing demand for private rental accommodation. In my eyes, that is the key…

    Yeah, I agree with you that growing UK population is also one of the main reasons to why you should consider property investment.

    At this moment in time one of the best reasons to buy property is the extremely low interest rates and as a consequence mortgage rates. It is now possible to lock in some very attractive rates with some experts suggesting that UK base rates could fall before they eventually rise.

    Revenue properties can be domestic properties, such as individual family homes or multi-family resources, or they can be commercial properties, such as a strip plaza. Money is made through holding the property and leasing it out or contracting the property after the benefit of the property has recognized.

    The key to any property investment is to find an up and coming area, where rental demand is high, rent the property out to pay your mortgage (and a bit more) then eventually you will have a fully paid up property which is still bringing in income for you.

    Hi @Davidlane

    I would be interested to hear your views on commercial property as the high street has all but disppeared taking many of the store faces we grew up with as youngsters.

    You will notice are more and more commercial properties are now being converted into residential properties. With the new build housing shortfall this makes perfect sense.

    At this moment in time property investment gives you a far greater yield than interest available on savings accounts. In all honesty, there are a few occasions where rental yields are not significantly higher than savings rates.

    As populations continue to grow, families split, demand for private rental properties should only increase?

    Is anyone worried about Brexit and recession and how it may effect the prices of houses? Any thoughts?

    If you strip away the emotion, headlines and the derogatory comments from all parties, the fact is that the EU needs to trade with the UK as much as the UK needs to trade with the EU. That is the bottom line, they are the cold hard facts of today so no, I am not overly concerned about Brexit. A deal will be done sooner rather than later.

    I couldn't agree more. And that just the truth of the matter.
     
  17. I would actually go as far as to suggest that the recent concerns regarding Brexit offer once-in-a-lifetime buying opportunities for those with a long-term mindset. When you also compare rental yields to savings interest rates, surely the pull towards property is even stronger?
