How to keep investors interested in property
In the past 5 years the property market has been in decline. Today we can see there has been a decrease of up to 25% in property prices in much of the UK. As the we reach what has been predicted as the bottom of the market and await for the return of the property buyers with the aid (if correctly utilised) of the Help to Buy scheme and the hopeful increase of lending to the market, property investment could prove very profitable once again. Capital values will begin to increase very soon in all sectors of the market and at a significantly higher rate than inflation. This currently has the highest potential of returns in investment at a medium term and is reasonably predictable. Take advantage of what will possibly be another property bubble, invest now before demand as well as prices begin to soar.
