Property is still the highest yielding asset
Despite the uncertainty surrounding Brexit and the recent hike in stamp duty, property is still the highest yielding investment opportunity compared to stocks, shares and other asset classes.
With interest rates at an all-time low, investors who historically wouldn’t have got involved with property are starting to look at it much closer. In addition, with the new pension rules, many people who are aged 55 and over are looking towards property as a way of boosting their retirement income.
And it’s not just UK investors who are thinking this way. As a result of Brexit, sterling has dipped in value, making property a very attractive proposition for international investors. The current low value of the pound is drawing investment from many overseas investors, especially those from China.
According to one of the UK’s leading property auction companies Auction House, investing in property is becoming the new ‘norm’ for investors. Whilst there is still some natural caution out there as a result of Brexit, you can’t avoid the fact that there is a massive housing demand and supply issue in the UK. The combination of low interest rates, low value of sterling and the ongoing supply and demand issue is creating a perfect storm for property investors who are currently seizing the opportunities that currently exist in the buy-to-let market.
