Forecasts for the UK property market are increasingly positive. It’s been a long shutdown period and people appear to be resuming their efforts to move or buy a new home. The most recent stats in October show the north of England is doing well, and that an exodus of renters in London is raising rent prices and home prices in areas outside. Hoped for drops in home prices isn’t happening and renters will find fewer lower-priced rentals to let. However, that won’t stop the ex-Londoners and other big city workers from seeking lower-cost accommodations. For long term investors, the rising price forecasts from JLL continue to support the value of buying homes and rental properties in the UK.
