With over 40-years of experience Barratt London is a market-leading residential developer, most recently they hosted a ‘Investing in London’ webinar to discuss current market trends within the Capital ..
With London’s property prices predicted to rise 12.6 per cent over the next five years and the recent extension of the Stamp Duty holiday until the end of June, the Capital’s property market could not be better suited to potential investors than it is right now.
On Wednesday 17th March at 6pm, Barratt London hosted an ‘Investing in London’ webinar, with an exclusive incentive of a guaranteed 5% rental return for the first year to those who attended the session. Current market trends were discussed by a panel of property experts, as well as the effects of Covid-19 and top tips for investors looking to make the most of what the City has to offer.
Those who tuned into the session heard from industry specialists including:
- Jennet Siebrits – Executive Director & Head of Research, CBRE
- Anne Ashworth – former award-winning Editor of The Times: Bricks & Mortar and The Times Money
- Marc von Grundherr – Director, Benham & Reeves
- Rachel Geddes – Business Principle, Mortgage Advice Bureau
- Ed McCoy – Sales Director, Barratt London
Topics discussed covered the benefits of buying new build properties, and of buying off-plan. The webinar also explored current London investment opportunities at some of Barratt London’s leading developments, including High Street Quarter in Hounslow, New Market Place in East Ham, and No. 10 Watkin Road in Wembley.
Ed McCoy said: “Despite the uncertainty brought about by the pandemic, London property still represents a fantastic investment opportunity for long-term capital growth. The UK’s strong economic and political foundations have kept property up there as the best performing investment asset over the past 30 years, and we don’t envisage this changing any time soon.”
“Many of our Barratt London developments are situated in regeneration areas, which have huge potential for future uplift. For example, our Hendon Waterside development has experienced a 110% capital growth increase in the seven year period from 2012 to 2019, compared to the London average of 64% over the same timeframe. We also have bespoke packages available for investors to help make the purchasing process as hassle-free as possible, from furnishings to finding tenants.”
