As real estate in the UK begins its recovery after subsequent lockdowns, there is more positivity around and confidence is returning to the market. Since the beginning of March, shortly after the UK Government announced a detailed roadmap for getting back to normal, our Hong Kong office saw a surge of interest, with London property investment the primary focus. When I joined Benham and Reeves Hong Kong office earlier in 2021, following the positive roll-out of vaccines in the UK, investors could see a clear way forward. And at the beginning of March, we started to see a real uptake in property sales which was a clear demonstration of the confidence that international buyers have in the wider UK economy. London property, in particular, remains at the top of the list (as ever), and we’ve also seen a surge of enquiries because of the BNO Visa scheme which provides a route to British Citizenship. Understanding what motivates Hong Kong investors is key I started my career in international residential property back in 2008 when the world was facing the global financial crisis. At that time, I had the advantage of working under the mentorship of a few London property experts whose vast experience and connections were combined with the right property propositions, made available to Asian investors, and I gained a lot of knowledge of what makes a good investment. My policy has always been to provide a customised, one-stop service to investors, from providing research and background advice on property purchase, through to leasing and management services and resale when the right opportunity arises. I have a strong base of clients who are recurring investors in the London market as they have experienced good capital appreciation and rental returns which London historically offers. I believe my experience is especially beneficial for new buyers, those looking for an overseas investment, investing in the UK market for the first time. With my property expertise, I have always ‘walked the talk’ and was a pioneer investor in the North- London regeneration project at Woodberry Down where I have seen capital values increased a staggering 96% since first launch in 2012, so I think I bought very well. Looking back, if I had that time again, I would also have bought a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment in Berkeley London’s Dickens Yard development in Ealing which was also recommended to me back in 2012 – the year when London hosted the Olympics - but Ealing was not top of my radar at that time. The area has also seen huge growth, almost doubling its value too and provides a good rental income with its continued success. Now there is Filmworks and other schemes coming to the area and the location has been totally transformed.
