How do we keep investors interested in UK property?
 I guess there are several factors that keep investors interested in UK property. First, the potential to make a living out of designing and providing housing for people, a sense of helping them put a roof above their heads and get a good name for it. Another factor that keeps investors interested is the exciting idea of 'regeneration' - e.g. - turning run down areas of towns and cities into high quality, safe communities to work and live in, or providing housing in fragile, rural areas in order to reverse dwindling populations and retain lifeline services in these areas. These are the factors I believe keep investors interested in the UK property market and if more emphasis was put on housing by the Government, then this would encourage investment and help create jobs and benefit both the developer and communities concerned.
