I would always trust the UK market. We bought an off-plan (yes!) in Kingston-Upon-Thames to rent and also to keep a foothold in the UK. After a few years the renting wasn’t working very well (they were building a theatre in front of it 🙁 prices had shot up and the media was saying there would be a fall. So..we sold over 2 years ago 🙄 on what we thought was the top of the market. Don’t like to think how much more it would be worth now 🙁 The moral is..we all make mistakes 🙂
Hello Katy – Think I know where you are referring to – just a few minutes from where I live – a few 2-bed flats are on sale there this week for £650,000 ❗ It’s a lovely place to live.
