I begin to see investors exploring properties in the UK that are outside of typical cities that investors tend to look at, such as London, Manchester, and Birmingham. It is mainly because investors prefer investing in properties generating substantial rental income. I would suggest being cautious with what regions you target and do more due diligence about the region’s future development. Try to find someone who might have lived or visited the region in the past, and has more insights into what is happening on the ground. If you have any suggestions on any topics or questions about the UK market, please feel free to comment!

我開始看到投資者在探索英國的房產,這些房產不屬於投資者通常關注的典型都市,比如倫敦、曼徹斯特和伯明罕。這主要是因為投資者更喜歡投資能產生可觀租金收入的房產。我建議你對目標地區保持謹慎,並對該地區的未來發展進行更多的盡職調查。試著找一個可能曾經在這個地區生活過或訪問過的人,並且對當地正在發生的事情有更多的瞭解。如果您對有關英國市場的任何話題或問題有任何建議,請隨時發表評論!
