London property shows tempt overseas buyers
For overseas buyers hoping to break into the UK property market residential property exhibitions in their home countries are becoming more popular.
Real estate investment exhitibitons held in Hong Kong, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur during 2010 netted UK property sales worth more than £800 million according to recent research.
The number of property speculators from the Far East has steadily increased over recent years and while a high percentage of property deals are secured through the traditional role of estate agents within the capital exhibitions are an excellent way of showcasing the variety of property available throughout the London property market.
Areas that sold well last year included Canary Wharf and districts that are currently undergoing regeneration projects. Buyers have included seasoned investors looking to join the rental market as well as families looking for accommodation for personal use.
