Given the current economic climate, with the past 2 years or so having hit the investment property industry rather hard and the media not knowing whether the market is on the up, taking a dive, entering a double dip or stagnating, we thought it might be an idea to run a few polls and ask the property buying public in general.
Last month, we ran a unsurprisingly inconclusive poll asking if people thought UK house prices had reached the bottom yet - the general consensus of opinion was "no-idea" given the results.
- 37% said Yes
- 41% said No
- 22% said Don't know
In a bid to find out a little more about general sentiment within the property investment world, we are running another poll - this time focusing on IF people were liquid, what would they invest into?
These days there is more choice than ever in the form of investment vehicles within the property sector aside from the traditional hard asset of "good old bricks and mortar". Property Funds, Buy to Let, Real Estate Investment Trusts, Commercial and Industrial Property, Student Accommodation, Hotel Rooms as well as Developer Stocks and Shares enabling investors to grab a piece of the action without necessarily having to buy a house.
What would you do if you were liquid for a sensible amount of investment capital right now, given the state of the world property markets?
Multiple selection of options is possible on the poll - Results will be aggregated from this poll here and the main site poll on the right hand side of the page and published in next months IPIN member newsletter!
