How to get easy access to the best UK property investment opportunities

Whether you’re looking to start investing in property, expand an existing property portfolio, or want to get back on the UK property ladder before returning to the UK, our new property investment service makes it easier than ever.

Investing in UK property could help you profit from arising market

Delivering valuable opportunities to build long-term returns, the UK housing market is considered to be one of the most stable, secure, and popular asset classes in the world.

Property forecasts have predicted the UK could see average house prices rise 21.1%by 2025. And, in some parts of the north of England, experts have predicted the rise could be as high as 28%.

These figures have stimulated an increased appetite for UK buy-to-let property from international investors.

With rising house prices, demand for UK rental property has doubled since 2002 and is set to grow even further. Experts estimate that, within the next five years, 20% of the UK’s population will rent.

Many investors buy-to-let

Buy-to-let properties can provide an additional income stream and help you to support your financial goals.

Many investors consider this route and often purchase buy-to-let property to diversify their portfolio or provide an inheritance for their children or grandchildren.

One of the most common reasons people buy property to rent out to tenants is to fund retirement.

In fact, according to the government’s English Private Landlord Survey 2021, 54% of landlords view their buy-to-let property as a “long-term investment to contribute to their pension”.

Is now the right time to buy or invest in UK property?

Research from Yopa, carried out in September and October 2022, revealed that many people still had trust in the property market. Indeed, more than half (54%) of those surveyed said they expected house prices to rise over the coming 12 months.

Despite the economic uncertainty of the past few months, almost half of people thought now was a good time to buy property. And a little under 60% felt confident that house prices would keep rising.

The imbalance between the demand for homes and the available supply is the main driver behind this. This shortage of homes is expected to help keep the market stable and growing.

Invest in UK property to profit from high rental yields or strong capital growth

Today, the housing supply is at its lowest level since the1920s. This is placing even greater demand on existing housing stock and new developments.

To keep up with demand, government estimates suggest that around 232,000 new properties need to be built in England every year.

On top of this, devolution away from the capital has meant that many of Britain’s northern cities have benefited from significant investment.

Now, with the rising rental market, investors can expect to profit from rental yields that exceed the UK average.

With all this in mind, our primary focus is on investment properties in regeneration areas that are likely to see good capital returns as well as good rental yields.  

As an example, properties in Birmingham are currently available from around £164,995 with a rental yield of 5%. The west Midlands city will also be the first northern city to benefit from the new HS2 high speed rail link.
