As we arrive near the end of the first decade in the UK property market outlook looks far less rosy, with doom merchants predicting a spectacular crash in line with what the US are currently experiencing, in fact the latest reports suggest that property price may well fall on average by 10% this year. This combined with the well published "Credit Crunch" putting the squeeze on "First Time Buyers" and you would think that only a madman would invest in the current UK housing market.  
Well think again! Cast your mind back to the 70ties when the last property crash hit the UK. When all around them where losing their heads, some very astute business men decided, that contra to popular belief, a falling UK property market was exactly the time to start buying up UK property for sale. In the Short term these investors new that they were likely to make a loss on their investment, but these UK investors where in it for the long haul. They new that the UK housing market, just like any other market, operated in a timeline of cycles, and that if they where prepared to keep their properties in the long term they could then make a fortune on this real estate when there was an upturn in the UK property market.
And so it came to pass, that the UK has now on average many more property millionaires than ever before and this is not just due to the fact that a "Million pounds aint what it used to be"
So If 2008 isn't as bad a time to invest in property as some people would have you believe, what are the best areas to invest your money?
In the UK look to the big cities that have the business infrastructure to support ecomonic growth in the future, places like;

  • Greater London  
  • Leeds in West Yorkshire
  • Manchester in Lancashire
  • Glasgow in Scotland
  • Belfast in Northern Ireland  
London is the UK city that is likely to experience the property crash first, but it is also the place that is likely to recover the quickest from its metaphorical "bloody nose", due to the fact that London’s population is still growing and despite the high price of land and rent, businesses still think London is the place to be.

Both Manchester (Northern England) and Glasgow (largest city in Scotland) have undergone an extensive property development program over the last few years. So much so, that many of the expensive flats, apartments, which were built in trendy areas, remain unoccupied. Property developers over estimated the demand for this kind of property and didn't predict the "Credit Crunch" which has limited "First Time Buyers" from buying property.

Despite this both areas are economically vibrant enough to withstand a property crash; unrivaled in size and economic activity in their respective areas and look to remain so for years to come.
