High demand for UK property from overseas buyers
Since the UK’s vote to leave the EU in June 2016, the drop in the value of sterling has boosted the appeal of the country’s property market to overseas investors, with many seeing the current favourable exchange rate as a lucrative buying opportunity.
Safe haven for property investors
For many years, the UK property market has been widely regarded as a safe haven by overseas investors.
Even in the global financial crisis, the British property market displayed remarkable resilience. Its swift recovery has encouraged investors who have continued to invest, even with Brexit uncertainty.
The well documented lack of available housing in the UK has attracted investment across a number of different asset classes, with the promise of rising property prices and strong rental returns.
As property prices continue to climb and the demand for housing continues to exceed supply, now is a great time for overseas investors to capitalise on the strength of the UK’s housing market while the exchange rate remains favourable.
Meet and greet in Kuwait
In September 2017, Experience Invest exhibited at Cityscape Global Dubai. The event allowed the team to showcase our latest property investments and meet clients based in Dubai.
The show highlighted the demand for UK property investment and, with so many clients based overseas, the team arranged an exclusive client meeting in Kuwait to meet some of the people who were unable to attend the show.
Held over two days, the event allowed the team to engage with existing clients and to meet people who are interested in learning more about the UK’s property market.
Clients were particularly interested in hearing more information about the company’s latest residential development, Infinity Waters.
Infinity Waters is set to become one of the city’s most desirable addresses thanks its prime location close to the city’s centre, the historical waterfront and its Central Business District. What’s more, the development will contain attractive onsite facilities, which include an indoor pool and spa, a cinema and meeting rooms, private outdoor areas and a modern gym.
Upon completion, the collection of three iconic towers will soar 27, 33 and 39 storeys high and will deliver just over 1,000 high end apartments in the Liverpool market.
Investors at the event were treated to a private dinner held in the Sheraton Hotel and were given the opportunity to ask questions about investing in the UK.
