Recently we have looked at areas to invest in across the North of the UK. Now it’s time to look at reasons why there are fantastic property investment opportunities to be had in the South of the UK. Here we explore four areas and what they offer investors.
A picturesque city full of history, Chichester caters to all ages and is home to a wonderful Cathedral, Chichester Festival Theatre (one of the UK’s flagship theatres) and Goodwood. There is always something for you to enjoy and experience. The town not only has an array of superb restaurants and pubs, but also offers quality shopping along its cobbled streets. There is a great mix of high street chain stores and independent businesses.
The area has also become well known for offering high quality education. Students from across the globe apply to study at both Chichester University and Chichester College. This area is investment-friendly and appeals to renters of all ages.
The seaside town of Bognor Regis has charm and character which sees many tourists take to the beach each year. The seafront offers an upbeat atmosphere perfect for family fun and with events all year round there is always something to keep you entertained. The area has good local schooling, and is located just a short drive away from the popular cities of Portsmouth and Brighton. The town also has a direct train route to London, making it a fantastic location for commuters who want to live by the sea.
The promise of regeneration to the area is an exciting prospect and will make Bognor Regis the perfect investment opportunity. Bognor Regis is also home to a large campus of Chichester University. The town is ideal for students studying here. With the University expanding on this site, the requirement for student accommodation in the area is increasing.
Upbeat and diverse, Portsmouth is one of the most populated areas in the United Kingdom. Over the years, an increasing number of big businesses have chosen Portsmouth as their base. With the help of funding given to the city to improve infrastructure and commercial property, many businesses are choosing to come to Portsmouth to take advantage of the optimal retail experience on offer. Home to Portsmouth FC and must-see attractions such as the Spinnaker Tower at Gunwharf Quays, this is a thriving city. The array of bars and restaurants will leave you spoilt for choice.
This area has the potential to be an investment goldmine. A popular city for students, with a well-respected university bringing possible tenants from all over the world, Portsmouth is a prime location that is worth considering while on the hunt for an investment property.
Southampton prides itself on offering opportunity to all. With ongoing developments, the city looks to bring more jobs and new homes to the market. Considering investment opportunities here, could lead to a very profitable business venture. With over 250,000 residents living in Southampton, there is also a substantial, and growing, population of students choosing to study here.
The two universities in the city produce plenty of potential tenants and investment opportunities to take advantage of. 20% of Southampton’s population is aged between 15 and 24, compared to just 12.4% nationally. The city sells itself, music lovers can enjoy electrifying gig venues to upscale music productions at the 02 Guildhall. Retail lovers have West Quay shopping centre and wonderful markets to enjoy.
