8 GreatReasons to Invest in Glasgow Property
The Property Shortage
The UK is one of the most densely populated countries in the world with the population growing by 400,000 every year. The huge demand for houses creates the perfect climate for property investors. As buyers compete for the best assets, they keep property values high.
With many people seeking rental properties rather than owning their own home, yield growth is increasing for property investors across the country.
Scotland’s housing crisis shows no sign of easing after research by the BBC found there was a 5,000 shortfall in the number of new homes built last year. The figure rises to 7,000 if the extra homes needed to catch up with the backlog are included.
This pressure on prices is why Alliance Property Group’s ability to offer ‘off market’ properties at low prices is so beneficial to investors.
The UK Legal System is Fair & Transparent
The UK property market is considered a safe place to invest.
Unlike any other parts of the world, the rights of tenants, landlords, sellers and buyers are well protected under law, with a virtually non-existent risk of the property being reclaimed by the Government.
Scottish property law is more favourable for the purchaser than property law in other parts of the UK.
Property Prices have increased by 100% every decade
The long-term prospects for capital growth are very attractive, even taking into account fluctuations in property prices.
In terms of long-term investment opportunities, UK property is continuing to out-perform all other major asset types. All evidence is pointing to much less volatile conditions in a market which has historically doubled in price every 10 years.
In 2019, Glasgow enjoyed the UK’s fastest growing house prices, which is great news if you can buy at lower than average below-market prices through Alliance Property Group.
Ongoing Economic Investment with growing market confidence
Whilst many property markets around the world are currently struggling, the UK real estate market offers rare optimism, which is being felt most strongly in Scotland, particularly in Glasgow.
Scotland has not suffered from the unstable price swings experienced by the rest of the UK.
The Glasgow property market, driven by its economic growth, has enjoyed 9.9% GVA economic growth over the past five years. This exceeds the Scottish average of 8.4% and is set to continue, with growth expected to reach 7.2% over the next five years.
Through Alliance Property Group, serious investors can buy property at a discount and watch their investment grow as property prices rise, resulting in equity growth for the future.

Glasgow Property Prices Fastest Accelerating in the UK
Data from the Scottish Institution of Civil Engineers for National Statistics recently revealed that property prices in Scotland rose 14.6% year-on-year, outpacing traditional investor hot spots like London.
Glasgow has the UK’s highest gross rental yields at 7.2%, compared to London at 4.3%, and house prices and average rents are expected to grow by 4% a year through to 2020.
Buyer Demand Outpacing Supply
Due to the continued shortage of property in Glasgow, competition is rife amongst buyers.
The lack of supply coupled with the increase in demand, both domestic and international buyers are competing for the best available properties.
There is potentially a shortfall of over 11,000 homes over the next five years within the city, excluding any historic undersupply, enhancing investors’ rent and capital growth.
Better Affordability in Glasgow
For many investors, particularly from overseas, London is the go-to location in the UK for property investment. But it has become an increasingly difficult time for investors to get into the market in the British capital, whilst rocketing prices are seriously eating away at overall returns. The average property price in London is over twice of that in Glasgow.
With property prices averaging half of London, and the fact that Glasgow is being seen as the new location of choice for corporate and property investment, Glasgow is witnessing a range of investment activity in the residential property market. All this means prices are affordable now but they will not stay low for long.
Now is the best time to invest in Alliance Property Group’s Glasgow.
Rental Guarantees and Highest Yield Returns
Due to the better affordability and demand, Glasgow offers one of the highest rent yield returns for property in the UK. That, combined with a Guaranteed Rent Scheme operating in Glasgow for two unique social housing schemes, makes it very attractive for all types of investors.
It gets even better when you combine that with a Guaranteed Rent Scheme operating in Glasgow for two unique social housing schemes.
