Increase In House Prices Provide Good Investments

Oct 11, 2007
When it comes to investment opportunities it's hard to know what to invest your money in because you want to be sure that you're not going to lose everything you've put all your money into. For this reason the property market has always been a popular option especially over the last few years.

One of the many reasons why investment opportunities in property are so popular is due to the dramatic increase in property values over recent years. A survey that was conducted by the Bank of Scotland has shown that UK house prices have outperformed every country in Europe other than Spain in the last five years. With statistics like this people feel more secure and reassured that they are investing in something that is going to make them a lot of money.

Another reason why more and more people are opting for investment opportunities in property is because as there has been an increase in property values, the range of buy to let mortgages is getting even bigger which is making it easier for people to get onto the property ladder. With more people doubting the security of the pensions and stock markets, property is definitely one of the best investment opportunities available at the moment.

People don't have to worry that they will get back less for their investment in a couple years' time when investing in property either. The Centre for Economic Business Research has revealed that the demand for rental property will nearly double in the next ten years as more and more people look at property as a safe and solid long - term investment.

It also seems as though the UK is one of the best places for investment opportunities in property as house price growth outperformed Australia, Canada and the US over recent years. As well as this house prices in the UK have risen by 90 percent compared to only a 40 percent increase for Europe as a whole over the same period since 2001.

Investors are reassured that even when the property market isn't doing as well as usual, it is rare that a house will devalue providing that it's in a decent neighbourhood. This makes it a relatively risk free investment as it's rare that you lose money. There is also big money involved in the property market with the average house price now being 200,000 pounds. With so many advantages and such few risks it's not at all surprising that so many people turn to property when looking for investment opportunities.
