Despite the apparently high costs, the UK property market is one of the most liquid markets in the world. Particularly in London, investing in real estate could be the best antidote to falling prices, a hedge against inflation and obtaining capital gains.
For the recent decade the analysts admit the record growth in demand for real estate in major university cities in the UK. A similar trend was triggered by a sharp influx of foreign students who come to England from Asia, Western Europe, Eastern states and the CIS countries.

Foreign investors, experienced in the acquisition of banking real estate in London, are aware of the fact that the bank initially exposes an object on a strictly fixed price, and it is usually overpriced.

When buying real estate from a bank it is recommended to announce your own proposal.
