Huge undersupply of housing
An undersupply of housing in an overpopulated area will deliver you with the most secure investment and drive tenant demand in the area.
Future capital appreciation
Although you are likely to achieve capital appreciation on any investment across the UK, there are key cities to consider that will deliver the highest increases in property prices, such as Manchester, and Newcastle.
Location is key
Look for a location that is undergoing infrastructural redevelopment, as this will bring in institutional investment, businesses, and in turn increase the population.
A young population
When investing in property, consider cities with a large university population and good graduate retention rate, as younger generations are likely to rent for longer than any other generation.
Migration of big businesses
The migration of businesses and overall job market in any city or town is a very important factor to consider, as this will attract more residents to the area.
Institutional investors invest heavily into the UK property market because of the security it provides to their clients, therefore institutional investment is important to keep an eye out for.
