Between the years of 1946 and 2006 house prices have doubled every 8.2 years; which is an extremely convincing argument to take a long term view when looking at property investment.
Even the housing market downturn of 2008 was just a minor blip on the house price index when viewed over the long term.
Some people may look back and remember housing market crash of 1992; this was, at its worst, just a 4% reduction in the average house price. However, this reduction was mitigated by the substantial increase in house prices in the years prior to 1992.
As bad as it seemed at the time, there are not many people who, if they got the chance, wouldn’t go back and invest in property at 1992’s prices. The same thing applies to right now, in the future investors will wishing that they had invested in property at 2012’s prices. You are in that enviable position and it’s an opportunity not be missed.
Our properties are below the market value allowing clients to benefit from lower risk in terms of short term variations and looking at the average growth over a longer period, the dip in 1992 is just a minor blip.
However, another advantage of below market value property investment is that you can benefit from capital growth instantaneously as well as in the long term. If you purchase something at 30% below the market value you can put it back on the market straight away and make money.
