The fastest growing cosmopolitan capital in Europe. The cultural and economic mecca
London is a leading global centre, rich in arts, culture, commerce, finance, education and entertainment, making it one of the top cities in the world in which to invest, participate, learn, live and visit. It offers historical, world’s leading museums and galleries, thriving theaters, exquisite fine dining, Royal parks and deep cultural roots. With an estimated GDP of $761 billion, London is one of the top five economically developed cities in the world. The world’s leading financial services centre has also emerged as a media and technology hub and home for quality higher education and research with more than 40 universities.
It is not a surprise that a cosmopolitan city like London with a diversified population of 7 million, would attract interest in its property market from all around the world. Single professionals or couples moving there with work mostly prefer central London with its robust social life. Families on the other hand look for bigger space, open areas such as parks, river and good schools. Students tend to minimize their travel time by finding dwellings near their colleges and universities, which are often bought by parents as their offspring’s first step onto the property ladder. An increasing number of purchases however have been driven by property investors, who then on-let their properties. A certain percentage buy the property as a second or third home and upgrade or downscale or exit during the holding period.
Commercial properties are usually owned and traded by institutional investors including insurance companies, real estate funds, syndicates etc. This asset class is more closely co-related to business growth and sentiment.
Whether it is residential own use or investment, or commercial property investment or exit, VPG offers an end to end service for our valued clients. Ranging from initial risk assessment, sharing research, recommendation, execution to post purchase lettings and management, property reviews, and exits.
We not only have access to traditional residential properties, new build stocks and commercial properties, but also undertake specific search as per the mandate specified by the client. Through our relationships on the ground, we also get to see off-market properties and development projects before these are launched in market and hence are able to secure a better price for our clients.
Please get in touch with VPG if you wish to discuss further and our relationship directors will be pleased to hear from you.
