Assetz reveals increase in foreign enquiries

Property investment company Assetz said it has seen a 55 per cent surge in enquiries from overseas investors wishing to purchase UK property.It said “swathes of investors” from Europe and the Far East were looking at UK residential property with a long-term view. Stuart Law, chief executive, said: "Despite the falling property market, investors still recognise London in particular as one of the most desirable places to own property in the long-term, with the supply/demand imbalance set to support a recovery in prices.”

  • I think the “swathes of investors” all bought here when the going was good; prime London was rising at 20%pa, not falling at 20%pa and the rich and famous were making their “fortunes” in banking, Madoff Funds and Stanford Holdings… Ha Ha Ha!!!

  • A further note: i find it extraordinary that assetz admits that prices are falling (usually they mention “slowing rises”).

  • Some quotes from/about the owner of Assetz :

    Reporter: “He still stands by his forecast that the residential market will enjoy 5% growth during 2009”

    Stuart Law: ‘We think the mortgage market has seen the bottom and will now improve to relatively normal conditions by September 2008 in time for the sales season after the summer break. I expect to see Libor collapse now the Bank of England has stepped in and interest rates will fall to around 4.75%

    Reporter: “Stuart Law was the sole delegate of 150 property professionals at a recent London conference to vote for a motion that house prices would continue to rise this year (2008). The overwhelming majority of his peers backed falls of between 10% and 20%.”

    Reporter: “His against-the-grain take on the property market has made him the go-to guy for the national press when it wants a counterpoint to gloom”

    Reporter: “Stuart Law has no formal economic training – Law graduated in software engineering”

    Stuart Law: “it takes only a very small amount of liquidity to keep the market ticking over – in the region of £20 billion to £30 billion would be enough.”

    Stuart law: “the volume of negative comment and expectations we are confronted with encourages me to believe this is the bottom of the market”

  • 55% increase of what? Penny shares. So the UK will be owned by foreigners, but who will buy their investments off them in the future?

  • doesnt do any favours to this site to misquote and change figures and dates…

    does everyone really think it is always a bad time to get on the ladder and property going to zero or will the site get renamed oneday soon to thenexthousepriceboom.co.uk ?
