Why Invest in Property

Property investments in the UK market has been a rewarding and exciting way to create wealth. It can help produce consistent income, even if you are just breaking into the investment scene as a retiree.

Historically speaking, property prices in the UK have witnessed a strong upward trend going as far back as the 1970s, despite a little volatility during the credit crunch and the current economic turmoil.

Many home owners have taken advantage of the rising housing market and have witnessed their property value increase over the years. It’s not surprising to see property investment as a means of long term financial security and freedom – and people from all over the world, not just the UK, are cashing in on the ripe UK property investment scene.

Despite the global pandemic, now happens to be a fantastic time to invest in UK property, namely because:

  • House prices continue to rise and will do so in future
  • Very high rental demand means high rental returns
  • Interest rates have been at an all-time low for several years now
  • Landlords are gaining much higher rental income – an opportune time to invest in UK property

As an investor, there are three main ways or avenues through which you can create wealth by investing in UK property:

Business

Register a business with Companies house and start trading, absorbing all the risks and liabilities. There’s no telling when you’ll break even or if you’ll break even, under the current circumstances.

Stocks and Shares

While it takes a keen sense of foreseeing the future and analysing trends, stocks and shares have a habit of either getting you very rich or very poor within days, sometimes within hours! They are unpredictable and there’s a relatively highly amount of risk involved.

Buying a Property

Investing in property, whether it be in the short, medium or long-term, is something that people with a keen outlook on risk-taking are doing all across the world. In case of the UK in particular, housing prices are rising, landlords are enjoying higher returns and property developments and buy-to-lets, for instance, are in high demand all year round. Plus, there are a variety of investment vehicles to choose from depending on your level of risk.
Land and property are one of the safest and most secure channels of building sustainable wealth. Even though we have been living in uncertain times since the pandemic, people are and will continue to invest in a variety of properties, irrespective of where the economy is headed or what the final outcome of Brexit may be.
It’s time to create wealth for yourself and your future generations – by banking on our years of expertise and knowledge.

Why are people afraid to invest?

While some folks succumb to general fears or perhaps a strict outlook on the idea of property investments, others are simply misinformed on the ground realities of what it means to be a successful investor – i.e. once you have devised sound strategies for the short and long term, and understand the level of risk-taking involved.
Generally speaking, people miss out on a world of opportunity to create wealth through property investments because they:

Don’t have access to a large deposit or initial sum of money

Even though there are a variety of ways to invest in real estate which involve only a few pounds to a few hundred pounds, the general consensus is that there several thousand pounds involved when it comes to investing in anything worthwhile. Plus, there’s a certain degree of commitment involved and people are often not willing to follow through till the end or even approach a bank/loan company to get the initial down payment, which for some property investments is as low as 20-25%.

Lack knowledge

When you don’t understand the investment landscape or how the rental yield market works, for example, you would be hesitant to take a chance on property investments – it’s only natural. However, this lack of knowledge means that many people refuse to budge their mindsets and feel that all investments will lead to financial doom.

A general sense of fear

With horror stories of investments gone wrong flying around on the internet, people tend to get discouraged quickly, even if they have the money to benefit from property investments. This fear, again, stems from a lack of knowledge and understanding, and consequently, many people miss out on amazing opportunities to create lifetime wealth.

The right mindset

Making investments, pursuing those investments regularly and taking risks is all in a day’s work for the average investor. A number of people, unfortunately, see this as a chore and prefer to stick to income that’s generated from a 9-5 routine, because it probably makes them feel more secure. Little do they know that with the right guidance, market knowledge and understanding their own risk tolerance level, they can create a fortune in a relatively short span of time!
