For capital growth and stability, it is seems, London holds a special place for real estate investors. Although recession has had some adverse effect on the property market in many countries, especially the USA, London has always remained a favourite city for high profile investors.
Apart from capital growth, the financial stability of the City has drawn investors from far and wide, especially from the oil rich Gulf states. There is continuing demand for property portfolio both for capital growth as well as steady income from lettings.
The choice of property depends on one’s immediate or future needs. Some rich investors would buy a spacious villa for their family, as holiday or second home. Others would buy purely for investment and capital gain and as a regular source of income.
There are all types of property bargains going around the City, from £1,000,000 to £50,000,000 and so on, ranging from a block of flats, a hotel or even new developments.
The general rent yield from such investments can range from 5% to 15%, depending on the area, the type of property, it’s location in the city and the opportunity to get it at a discounted price e.g. from a forced sale or in an auction.
