2014 UK Property Prices To Increase Further

2014 UK Property Prices To Increase Further

UK Property Prices Continue To Increase

There could be more good news for UK property investors over the coming months as projections for the rest of 2014 indicate that property prices are set to rise even more, providing the potential of greater Return On Investments (ROI).

Since the UK housing market crash in 2008, UK property prices slumped and were depressed for some time afterwards due to uncertainty in the economy, however, the end of 2013 saw the UK property market spring back to life.

According to data from the Halifax House Price Index (HPI), there were over 1 Million residential property transactions in 2013 for the first time since 2007, and residential property sales increased for the ninth month in a row in December 2013,  30% higher than in 2012.

The data from Halifax is great news for property owners and shows that the UK property market is well and truly back on its feet.  So, if you’re a property investor who is planning on investing in property in 2014, you can expect to see property prices continuing to rise.

2014 started with residential property prices on the increase and more people buying and selling. The introduction of the 2nd phase of the Government’s Help-To-Buy scheme in October 2013 allowed property purchasers to get 95% Loan-To-Value (LTV) mortgages, heralding the return of the first-time buyer to the UK property market.

Investing In Property Or Investing In Yourself?

Investing In Property Or Investing In Yourself?

Are You Getting The Property Investing
Results You Deserve?

Many people get involved in buying investment properties in the hope of either holding on to the property, renting it out and generating a healthy monthly rental yield or renovating the property and selling it on for profit. Many of these investors do this entirely by themselves without seeking the advice or experience of property investors and property professionals.

This is madness, you wouldn’t walk into Lord Sugar’s office and tell him he doesn’t know how to run a business, or visit a dentist who had never performed dental surgery before and ask them to pull out your very sore tooth?

I hope the answer was NO!

Going into property investing armed with nothing but determination won’t provide the financial return that you want, need or even deserve, going into property investing blind WILL lead to you making huge and costly mistakes.

To be a successful property investor you need to employ sound knowledge and demonstrate a few essential skills as well as more than a little financial acumen so that you can make successful decisions when examining property deals, when purchasing investment properties, or refinancing your existing rental property portfolio.

Education is the key to GOOD, PROFITABLE and ETHICAL property investment, knowing what to buy, where to buy, how to buy using other people’s money, how to control property without actually owning it, how to use lease options, when use instalment contracts, how to profit using rent to rent, the list could go on and on, but I think you get my point.

There are so many different strategies being used by property investors that it is difficult to keep up sometimes, however these different strategies become virtual goldmines for property investors when they invest in themselves and attend seminars, workshops, courses and property networking events.
