Any property investor would look for properties that can deliver maximum output rate so their profit margin is very high. In the UK It is very competitive to invest in major cities such as London, because it has already been developed and has recognition globally. There are other smaller cities in UK that are developing significantly, and by doing survey you can accumulate how much potential there is in terms of future investment; for example, a city such as Blackpool is a major northern location. Blackpool once was the top beach resort in UK and it was very popular in the 18th century, however in the 19th century their redevelopment was not as successful. There is a very high potential for Blackpool to get redeveloped and regenerate the city because it is in a very good location.
Clients need to be informed with numeric figures and ideas that can show maximum output in a longer term. Manchester is one the major city in UK and it is still developing, currently there is a major on-going development in city center which will completed in 15 years. It is very competitive to invest in cities that have already been developed to certain standard; therefore, I personally think that investing in smaller growing cities is the way to go forward in UK.
