Attracting investors from all over the world, the UK has long been seen as a desirable location for property investors and developers alike. High yields coupled with steady capital growth have made the UK property market a highly lucrative arena for countless investors over the years. This, however, doesn’t mean it is without its challenges. High rewards often come with elevated risks, and the real estate market is no different.
With the spectre of Brexit looming, real estate is tipped by some to bear the brunt of any economic slowdown. With a continually growing list of companies electing to move their headquarters and operations from the UK over to mainland Europe in a bid to mitigate a Brexit-fuelled downturn, along with falling immigration levels from the EU, the market is at risk of a glut of unfilled commercial and residential real estate. Reduced demand coupled with likely interest rate rises, has the very real possibility to drive down profit margins and create an overall more challenging space to operate in.
