Britain is leading the possible formation of a EU-China Trade Free deal which could boost the economy £1.8 billion annually. Various companies and organisations (Jaguar) have begun making deals in order to benefit their sector and I feel that the UK property sector would gain from this. This could see a large increase in funding as currently the population growth is exceeding the (affordable) property construction rate and there is more demand for new housing developments.
The media claimed recently that the average house price is going to increase to £650,000 by 2020 and that in London high spec multi-million pound developments are being built that not enough people can't afford. However i feel the solution would be to offer UK wide areas for development to China and UK developers once the deal is implemented and allow them to build large quantities of affordable house of which people will feel more inclined to invest in. Furthermore due to the trade free agreement the cost could be reduced per house due to imported materials. I feel this proposal would gain positive media/speculation and improve the housing situation in the UK.
