Where to invest in UK property?

One of the biggest considerations for property investors is deciding where to invest. Throughout Surrenden Invest’s guides, we look at the best places to buy property across the UK, comparing rental yields and capital growth potential over the next five years.

As an investor, we understand that you want your money to deliver the best return. By carefully selecting a UK property hotspot, you stand to make a regular income from a rental property whilst seeing your asset increase in value over time.

When choosing a location, we always take a long-term view and establish what factors will future-proof the area. For buy to let investors, understanding where and why rents are rising in the UK is of utmost importance for securing a long-term return from property.

Currently, UK rental data highlights growth outside of London, with regional markets significantly outpacing the capital and the overall UK average.

This trend will likely continue throughout 2022, allowing investors to look away from London to diversify their property portfolio to include lower entry-level options in regional hotspots.

Throughout 2021, UK property prices have risen in most regions at a slow and steady pace despite the pandemic and the knock-on effect of Brexit. The introduction of a Stamp Duty Holiday period – which recently ended – coupled with low-interest rates and new mortgage products for first-time buyers have contributed to the volume of properties sold.

In 2022, we expect that regional markets will continue to rise faster than London and the South East, with the exception of a few commuter belt locations. You can find out more about what is driving growth and which area is best for your budget by accessing our Location Guides.

Deciding on the best buy to let option for you

When it comes to deciding on the best buy to let option for you, several factors come into consideration, including how much you should invest and whether to buy using a mortgage or cash.

It is tempting to go for the highest returns and the fastest increases in your capital invested when you’re looking to make money. However, long-term opportunities are usually a lower risk, and you will still end up with a healthy return on investment.

Our range of UK Property Investment Guides and Market Analysis Reports will provide you with a clearer picture of the market and outline the regions that are expected to see the highest level of growth over the next few years.

Employment prospects and the creation of new jobs, improvements to infrastructure, rising university student numbers and graduate retention rates, plus population growth and trends on the local rental market are all factors that investors should consider when selecting

a property investment. Surrenden Invest’s library of guides will save you time by highlighting these key factors and more to help you decide your next property purchase.

The overall strength of the UK’s property also makes it an ideal choice for diversification, allowing those with the funds to diversify their portfolio by spreading money across a few asset classes or locations. This strategy allows you to benefit from rises in one area while also lowering risks if an asset underperforms.

If you already have a property portfolio, you should always review the performance of your investments, as markets will inevitably change over time. Our range of guides to investing in property will provide you with an overview of the market’s current performance and future forecasts and help you keep track of the best-performing markets to give yourself the best chance of solid returns.
