UK residential buy-to-let property is widely considered lower risk and less volatile than stocks and shares.
The tangible nature of bricks and mortar and its ability to significantly outperform stocks, has made investment in UK property highly desirable for investors.
As a result, there has been an increase in the volume of overseas investors looking to capitalise on demand for rental property across a variety of UK asset classes.
With property prices in London now at peak levels, stagnant growth potential has forced investors, renters and buyers to look further afield for better value for money.
Regeneration projects and investment in infrastructure across the UK have contributed to steady growth in the regions, with demand for property increasing in key locations faster than the current rate of supply.
With regional cities offering some of the best growth potential and returns on the market, international buyers now see the value of investing outside of London.
In recent years, emerging locations including Northern Powerhouse cities and London commuter belt towns, have enabled investors to achieve higher yields, with rental returns outperforming London’s buy-to-let market.
A widescale undersupply of property in the UK has also allowed alternative markets, like student property, to emerge as a high yielding alternative to traditional buy-to-let. With 11 universities ranked in the world’s top 100 and student numbers climbing year-on-year, the evergreen nature of this asset class has underpinned demand to create attractive returns for investors.
The number of people who own their own property has declined steadily over the last 20 years. High house prices, weak income rises, and an overall lack of housing has seen homeownership levels dwindle.
An overall lack of affordable housing has seen people gravitate towards the private rental sector, with 22% of all homes in the UK now occupied by private renters.
As the number of people renting a property reaches an all-time high, investors can capitalise on the demand for new-build housing and secure reliable rental returns for many years to come.
The prestige of owning a property in Great Britain, the country’s economic stability and the proven resilience of its real estate sector, have helped it to emerge as one of the world’s most popular locations for property investors.
UK real estate is a popular choice for overseas buyers and in recent years has attracted the attention of investors from the Middle East, Asia and Europe.

The UK’s property market is now more geographically diverse than ever before, with regional hotspots including Northern Powerhouse cities and London’s commuter belt offering some of the best returns.
Build to Rent properties in the UK are set to attract £50 billion worth of investment by 2020. The sector is redefining real estate investment and offers investors significant returns.
UK student property has risen from a niche sector to become the UK’s best performing asset class. The sector’s rise in popularity is underpinned by high demand and reliable rental returns.
Alternative assets including purpose-built student accommodation, hotel suites and commercial property remain favourable choices for expanding property portfolios.
