United Kingdom - London
London has by all accounts become the World’s most influential and popular city according with an economic growth of 5%+, it outstrips the UK’s 3% GDP increases, and, importantly for the residential investor, population growth is similarly impressive for the capital city of a mature economy. A million new homes are needed within 10 years as the populace surges. However, shortages of decent, modern accommodation, even with cranes everywhere to be seen seemingly in every borough of the city, create a situation whereby buildings can sell out in an afternoon with long queues of almost desperate buyers snaking around city blocks. One thing that’s important to take in is that London’s infrastructure is being substantially upgraded with new lines under construction. This means that journey times from the centre to some areas are dropping dramatically and this has an obvious effect on property values. The growth is brought about by immigration (37% of the population is foreign born), a low death rate and a relatively high birth rate. This gives London some superb new possibilities for investment for a hot buy-to-let market that has sustains almost inexhaustible demand.
