Bristol property investment sector set for boom from London exodus

Property investors in Bristol could be set for an extra injection of cash in 2016, with news that property prices in London are so expensive, many are considering buying homes in regional cities such as Bristol, Glasgow and Manchester instead.

According to this recent report many worked in London are locked out of buying property in the capital city, with the average price of buying a home in London now tipping 12 times the average worker’s salary.

This means that property investment and homebuyers could well be growing in regional cities, such as Bristol, where according to the report it’s possible to buy two homes for the price of what could be purchased in London.

This could well see new levels of property investment in Bristol, as workers exodus out of the capital city, and decide to settle in regional cities instead where they can afford to get on the property ladder and buy a home for the first time.
