In a recent blog, we spoke about how commercial investors were being urged to spread their risk by investing into other areas of the UK as well as London. Although many areas such as Milton Keynes reported a growth in their property sales, it has been reported that areas outside London are still performing 30% below the national peak value.
This information was released by private investment magazine What Investment following a series of interviews with commercial property experts. Alex Ross, the manager of the Premier Pan European Property fund was one of the interviewees. He suggested that the success of London’s property market does not correspond with the rest of the nation’s performance as London is largely outperforming the rest of the nation. Alex Ross added that there is a noticeable trend in commercial property investment elsewhere in the UK.
An increasing number of commercial property investors are maintaining their focus on industrial property rather than retail commercial property due to the ever-growing threat of online shopping. If commercial property investors are unconfident about the commercial property market in other areas of the UK, it is advisable that they focus their activities in the safe haven that London is. The capital’s commercial property market is undeniably flourishing and an article published by Financial News specialists, The Tally justifies this statement.
The information released about the survey indicates that London was the busiest commercial property market in the world, surpassing other successful cities including Tokyo, Los Angeles and Paris. In 2013, London’s commercial property investment resulted in an estimated £11billion worth of transactions. If you want to increase your profit margins and eliminate any risks, then you should certainly consider investing in commercial property in London.
