Low cost property in the UK

UK Expats are investing their savings in property for long term pension income. For this they are selecting property in what they regard as the most secure country - the UK.

A survey conducted by Find UK Property in February 2015, asked UK nationals that were living abroad (UK Expats) about their buying intentions relating to investment property. Over 77% of those surveys regarded their own country to be the most secure for long term property investment. The second most popular country was the country of residence at only 12%, whilst 11% named other countries.

Andy Noble, Senior Marketing Consultant at Find UK Property said the UK property market is a relatively mature market with steady long term growth, although there are relatively minor fluctuations around this growth trend. The property buying processes in the UK are very structured involving solicitors at both ends of each transaction and property prices are much less volatile than some countries in the Middle East and Far East.

“Many UK Expats are working overseas and have good posts with high salaries in fields such as the Oil Industry, Health Care, Construction Services and project management in various industries. They are making savings and are planning to invest some of their money in property in a secure country for long term pension income. This research shows that they regard their own country as the most secure and hence this is likely to be where they look for investment property.
