London living

Investors remain keen to invest in London properties

The London property market is buoyant, with demand continuing to be both strong and diverse.

Investors from all walks of life – and from all corners of the globe – remain eager to purchase homes, apartments, student accommodation, and even commercial buildings in order to expand their portfolios and take advantage of the high yield possibilities here. High net worth individuals in particular are ever keen to secure a prestigious address in the capital, with London often cited as their favourite investment destination.

What draws people to the capital?

Those with ties to London enjoy the vibrant melting pot that is one of the most ethnically diverse cities on earth.

The colleges and universities here offer a first-class education, while the region’s healthcare system is also cited as one of the best in the world. But amenities and facilities aside, Londoners have the added advantage of world-famous icons and landmarks right on their doorstep, not to mention the opportunity to immerse themselves in centuries of cultural heritage and gain a greater understanding of the complex histories of the region.

It’s a fascinating, stimulating place to live that’s packed full of professional opportunities. As such, investors know that, despite the economic turbulence we’ve experienced in recent years, the London property market will continue to hold its own by retaining its appeal for homeowners, tenants and businesses alike.

Why live in London?

Clearly, then, there is a case for investing in property in London above any other city. But what can you expect if you decide to relocate to the capital?

There’s such a diverse range of housing stock in London, which means you’re bound to find your dream home here. Whether you’re searching for a family townhouse, a luxurious penthouse apartment in prime Central London or a simple pied-a-terre, Victorstone can introduce you to a variety of developments that suit your requirements, including those that can be acquired with the support of Help to Buy or Shared Ownership schemes. Many of these properties have access to world-class facilities, beautiful green spaces and, of course, those much-coveted city skyline views.

Experience something different every day

You can choose where to live based on the lifestyle you want to enjoy. Go-getters are attracted to the hustle and bustle of Central London; young professionals and families often seek the homelier feel of London’s outer boroughs. But wherever you decide to put down roots, you can rest assured that new experiences are just a short drive, bus ride or train ride away.

In fact, navigating your way through the city is like traversing different worlds. Every region boasts its own culture and its own heritage; every street has something different to offer. Choose to live in London, and you’ll never get bored. There’s simply too much going on here to leave you feeling stuck or stale.

Benefit from unrivalled links to Europe and beyond

Residents, expats, holidaymakers and investors alike can connect to the rest of the world with ease, thanks to the three international airports nearby: Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted. The smaller London City airfield also enables rapid transit to popular domestic and European destinations.

Fantastic transport links by road and rail also help to secure London’s reputation as both an investment hotspot and somewhere to start a new life.

Let us help you find your perfect property

If you’re ready to start looking for your next home or investment opportunity, you need to speak to the team here at Victorstone.

We do things a little differently. Instead of bombarding you with property lists, we’ll only present you with suitable properties that match your specific criteria.

We do this by using a model that aligns you with certain properties on a percentage match basis. Simply create your profile within our system, and we’ll start sending you Heads Up property alerts as soon as we hear of a property that might be of interest to you. If you’d like to learn more, you can then contact us to arrange a showing and get more information.

If you’re relatively local, we can organise appointments at times that suit you. And if you’re currently based overseas, we can facilitate remote viewings and guide you through the process of buying a property in London from afar.
