Here are the top TEN reasons why you should be investing in off-plan UK property.
No.1 STRONGEST CAPITAL GROWTH
Buyers can take advantage of any improvement in property values throughout the construction period, allowing the strongest growth possible.
No.2 RISING RENTAL YIELDS
A new report by HomeLet claims the average UK rent has reached £970 a month, up 2.4% in the space of a year and the highest level recorded. Buy-to-let property investments offer investors some of the most lucrative investments on the market, combined with the strongest growth potential attainable.
No.3 RENTAL DEMAND

No.4 PASSIVE INCOME
Properties are offered fully managed, to allow the investor to generate a ‘passive rental income’ from a UK property
No. 5 PREMIUM PROPERTIES
High class luxury living, and premium facilities are more attractive to modern day professionals, ensuring rental demand stays high.
No.6 EXCLUSIVE DISCOUNTS
Many developers offer savings, incentives and discounts. These can include things like help with deposit schemes, part exchange deal or shared equity. Purchase of multiple units can also be heavily discounted. Talk to your consultant about current offers from developers
No.7 INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENT
The government has distinguished the need to increase infrastructure locally within key regions, putting lesser known regions on the map, and driving rental demands in cities and commuter belt areas.
No.8 POPULATION GROWTH
In 2019, the UK population grew to an estimated 66.5 million, a growth of over half a million people in one year. It is projected that the population will reach 70 million by 2026.
No.9 HOUSING STOCK SHORTAGE
In 2018/19, the total housing stock in England increased by around 241,000 homes. This was 9% higher than the year before – and the amount of new homes supplied annually has been growing for several years – but is still lower than the estimated need.
