In the two-and-a-half years since the EU referendum, Brexit has dominated political and economic discourse. Exactly what impact the UK’s departure from the EU will have on the property market, and how investors can best plan for the future amidst the uncertainty it has caused, both remain topics of great importance.
Indeed, these unanswered questions have been a source of uncertainty for people not only in Britain but internationally. Businesses, consumers and investors alike have been naturally hesitant in making major decisions, conscious of how economic landscapes and financial markets will change post-Brexit.
Positively, independent research commissioned by Experience Invest in February 2019 demonstrates that despite the palpable sense of Brexit frustration, there is still significant appetite for bricks and mortar investments.
You can read all the findings from this research in our recent report: Uncovering the UK’s 2019 property investment hotspots.
The survey of more than 500 UK-based real estate investors (all of whom own two or more investment properties) found that 54% are looking to buy a property over the year ahead, and 89% intend to either maintain or grow the size of their portfolios in the next 12 months.
Nevertheless, set against the backdrop of on-going Brexit discussions and widening divisions in Westminster, property investors must keep a keen eye on how the UK’s approaching departure from the EU will impact their financial decisions. Specifically, investors have to cogitate about how they can successfully navigate the real estate market in a post-Brexit world.
