How To Select A Potential Overseas Property For Investment

Buying an investment property, especially an overseas one, is never a simple process.

We’re talking about a 6 or 7 figure transaction after all.

There are many factors you need to consider, in order to make the best possible purchase for your investment objectives.

In this article, we’ve narrowed them down to 3 of the top considerations, using West London property as the guideline.

And why West London? Because there’re a few highly investable properties in that hotspot at the moment (read the full article to discover our carefully curated shortlist).

So without further ado, here are the top 3 considerations when selecting your investment property:


1. Buy Only From Reputable Developers

Investing in overseas property usually comes with a certain degree of uncertainty.

You may not be familiar with the country’s culture, property laws and market conditions.

But this should not stop you from capitalizing on profitable investments, especially since there are plenty of ways to bridge this knowledge gap.

One of them is to do extensive research on the developer of the project you’re eyeing.

Look out for their track record, partners in your region, years of experience, among other key factors.

A developer who ticks all the boxes is likely to successfully launch the project without major issues, giving you peace of mind after you make your investment.

For West London, we are working with Barratt London, a reputable developer with a stellar track record and over 60 years of experience in property.


2. Close Distance To Transport Options

For investors, rental is often a safe and logical choice to generate passive income.

And most tenants are usually working professionals or students.

For these 2 groups, ease of transport is usually a must when choosing their temporary homes.

Which means that as an investor, buying a property with easy access to transport options is in most cases, a sure-fire way to attract interested tenants.

With a host of tube stations in the area, and the upcoming cross rail line set to be completed in October 2021, West London provides a high level of connectivity not found in other locations.

Residents will get to enjoy convenient commutes to all parts of London, including Heathrow Airport.

This close proximity to multiple transport options makes West London an ideal choice for investors looking to profit from the rental market.


3. Area Growth And Development

A property’s appreciation in value often depends on the area’s growth and development.

More amenities, greater accessibility and increase in lifestyle options will contribute to the property’s rise in value.

In the case of West London, several areas are currently undergoing regeneration, such as Harrow & Wealdstone, Euston, Old Oak & Park Royal, West Hendon and Heathrow.

This regeneration process is meant to spruce up living conditions, and transform those locations into hotspots for business, education and tourism.

Not only will this regeneration increase the value of West London properties, it will also make them more attractive to potential tenants.
