WHY INVEST IN RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY IN LONDON?
The London property market is generally considered to be a safe haven for both UK and also overseas investors particularly when there are turbulent times of economic and political unrest within their own countries.
Overseas investors account for at least one third of purchases in what is considered to be 'Prime Central London', areas such as Marylebone, Baker Street, Regents Park, Mayfair & Knightsbridge and more recently areas within North West London have also prospered.
Whilst the majority of overseas purchases are for investment purposes they are also in many cases to be their main residence and their London base.
Investors are generally interested in London's ever growing buy-to-let market which offers good rental yield returns particularly for properties that are close to underground stations, universities and places of work. Whilst other investors look to build or add to their portfolio of properties in areas across London that will both hold and increase in value over the years.
