Upbeat UK Residential Construction Activity Continues

Posted Posted in Uncategorized

It’s been a positive year so far for the UK’s residential construction sector and June rounded off a pleasing first half for home building. Although there are concerns over the UK’s economic future, due to an unsettled political backdrop and the likely lengthy Brexit negotiations, confidence remains upbeat as activity and new orders grow. “The monthly Construction Purchasing Manager’s Index from data specialists Markit, paints a healthy picture of the UK’s residential construction sector,” said Proskips. “It’s a closely followed and reliable indicator of activity, so confirmation that the first half of 2017 has been a good one for home-builders, is welcome news.” Strong Residential Construction The monthly construction PMI slipped to a balance of 54.8 in June, from May’s 56.0. While that shows the pace of growth in the construction sector was a little slower in June than in May, a figure above 50 represents sectoral expansion, which means things are still positive. The data also showed that new orders and activity for residential construction were both the second strongest since the record high in December 201. The reason for the slowdown in the pace of growth in the sector wasn’t due to residential construction – it expanded for a 10th straight month. No, the reason for the slowdown was down to a lack of new orders in the commercial and civil engineering sectors. Much more than the residential housing sector, the commercial and civil engineering fields were hit by election and Brexit-related nerves. This culminated in a number of projects nearing completion and fewer new jobs to fill the upcoming voids. “With strong support from the Government, residential construction remains a driver of property construction activity in the UK and looks set to do so for some time to come,” said Denhan Guaranteed Rent. “The need for international […]

Student property and Brexit

More investors are now turning to student property on the back of Brexit

Posted Posted in Uncategorized

Student property continues to attract investors Demand for more student property nationwide and a fear of what Brexit could mean for the wider property market is helping to fuel a swell in the number of people set to invest in student property, according to a new report. Buyers who would previously have used the mainstream rental market are worried that the Brexit process could mean the value of their investments falling, but a constant, and in fact growing, supply of student tenants nationwide has meant a need for investment, and many of those with concerns over Brexit are going to move into the market as a result. In London, for example, the Evening Standard reports that there are as many as 279,160 full-time students. However, there are only in the region of 60,000 purpose-built homes in the city, which shows a real demand for homes that are built with students in mind, which means a need for investment.   Demand for UK student property It’s a similar story across the UK, where there is an ever rising demand for student property. For example, in Liverpool, there has been a rise from 50,000 to 60,000 students in the course of the last year alone, and 60 per cent of all students in the city need private accommodation, which creates strong demand and a real need for further investment. While this year has not been as strong so far for student property investment as last year was, the fact that there was £2 billion worth of investment in the first three quarters of the year shows that it remains strong, and the final three months of the year should only add to this as investors turn to student homes in the face of Brexit.

China’s rich looking to invest in London property

Posted Posted in Uncategorized

The team at Experience Invest have been keeping a careful eye on the turmoil in the Chinese stock market recently, and many now believe that wealthy Chinese citizens are looking to move money into the UK property market as way of keeping their cash safe. It’s not just London and the UK that’s set for an influx of Chinese investments, agents in Australia and Canada are also seeing signs already that Chinese cash is coming into their markets. According to the Guardian newspaper, there’s a huge pile of cash sitting in China that’s earmarked for property investment in the UK and beyond. High-net-worth individuals Sydney estate agent Michael Pallier told the Guardian that “A lot of high-net-worth individuals have already taken money out of the stock market because it was getting just too hot.” Problems with the market have been widely reported but the Chinese government have taken some recent steps that have helped stabilise the market. 20 per cent in the value of the market has been wiped off since the middle of June, and it’s widely believed that many wealthy investors have cashed out. While much of this money has been put into the Swiss franc, there’s a growing belief that investors see property in UK, Australia and Canada as the best place to put their money. Parking money Agents across the capital are recording interest from Chinese investors. Many of these individuals are looking at placing large sums into property. Figures as high as £150 million have been reported, and some commentators have suggested that a record high London market still looks cheap to many Chinese investors. However, there have been some issues with Chinese investors who didn’t pull out of the Shanghai stock market quickly enough. The Chinese authorities recently banned shareholders with large stakes in listed firms […]
