Despite the impact of the recession and financial crisis on the UK property market,
many individuals remain confident that real estate is the best investment that they can make.
A survey conducted by holidaylettings.co.uk has found that 77 per cent of respondents feel that now is a great time to buy homes in the country. Many of those polled stated that current low values are the main motivation, with some areas of the country boasting very competitive prices.
In addition, the survey found that many people consider property to be a more sound investment than buying gold
The research follows recent comments from Stuart Fiertz, co-founder of Cheyne Capital Management, who believes that riskier assets in stable countries could present investors with the best opportunity to make substantial returns this year.
In an interview with Bloomberg news, Mr Fiertz said that the UK would become increasingly popular among buyers, with its political stability and market transparency attracting foreign investors.
