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.
When scrutinized the property market in the UK, the average price of a home has hit a new record high last month. According to Halifax's latest monthly house price index, the average home in September 2021 was worth £267,587. This represents a month-on-month increase of 1.7% over the nearly £263,000 in August, which is a record in and of itself. The most recent monthly growth rate, Halifax even announced that price appreciation is the highest since February 2007. Furthermore, in September, UK house price inflation reversed a three-month downward trend and was 7.4% on a year-on-year basis.

When we tend to analyze more and find out higher-value property or land, then our investment becomes clear!
My personal opinion is that in the UK, the property market has been driven by a chronic undersupply and rising demand for property, hence long-term forecasts for rental prices are extremely positive for those looking to UK investing. There have been experts that have forecasted in 2022 the average rental prices for a UK investment could rise by 2 percent over the year, contributing to an 8.5 percent increase over the next five years. Thus, you’re looking to invest in the UK with Buy-to-Let, as it gives plenty of opportunities for the asset to maximise returns over the long-term. So if we we look at specific key areas for UK investing, especially regional cores in the Midlands and the South East, these forecasts are even higher. For instance, in the the West Midlands the property market has been buoyant and has been outperforming the wider market, with forecasts suggesting it could see rents rise by 12 percent over the next five years.

At the same time, there is a Goldman Sachs prediction out there which forecasts that home prices on average are expected to grow by 16% by the end of 2022.

Investing in commercial properties is a promising investment tool that will provide you with long-term passive income. The modern investment mechanisms allow you to start with minimal investment. Some reasons why we should consider property investment also your blog is very informative for me so thanks for sharing it with us.

Leverage
Capital growth
Gearing
Interest rates at an all-time low
Opportunity to add value
Great point and to add on. The cash flow benefits that come with property investment are yet another perk. If a real estate investment earns a profit after all mortgage and operating costs are paid, that profit is called cash flow. The ability to generate cash flow from real estate investments is a significant advantage of real estate investing. When you pay down your mortgage and accumulate equity, your cash flow often improves over time.

What can be the demerit of property investment?
Investing in real estate has the disadvantage of being less liquid than many other types of investments, such as high-frequency stock trading, and therefore more challenging to buy and sell profitably. On the other hand, assets in property are significantly more illiquid due to the difficulty of selling them without suffering a significant loss in value. Investors in real estate should be ready to hold onto a property for a long time, especially if it will be rented out.
