How do we keep investors interested in UK property?
- Promoting the fact that property is a long term investment that will provide long term stable return in the form of income and capital growth on selling price.
- Reminding investors that other forms of investments in other asset classes, such as shares, may have higher level of liquidity, but they also have higher level of risks. Their cycle fluctuates much more in comparison to property.
- In addition, people are now more environmentally conscious. So another idea is, developing environmentally friendly buildings (including office and even residential developments) may be more appealing to investors and again promote long term returns.
