WHY INVEST OVERSEAS?
As property prices in Australia continue to soar, there are plenty of bargains to be found in overseas markets. In recent years, an increasing number of local investors have begun looking beyond our own shores for their property investment needs.
Investing in foreign countries can be an effective way to diversify your portfolio. With a strong dollar compared to the currency of many foreign nations, there is the potential to take advantage of comparatively lower property prices and higher growth rates.
Lower entrance point to get into investing pool
Investing in overseas property market can potentially benefit the investor from lower upfront costs and more lenient eligibility criteria to qualify for a loan.
Generating additional cash flow in another currency
Investing overseas adds diversity to your portfolio and the currency exchange rate could be used to benefit financial situations.
Owning overseas property may increase the chance of qualifying for residency in that country. Some countries allow owning a property to qualify for residency visas. The investment itself can aid in that process of establishing/moving overseas.
Depending on income, overseas property investment can have tax benefits.
Private and monetary value
As an investor, you have the flexibility to use the overseas asset to suit your circumstances. The property itself can be used as a part-time residence or holiday venue with the added benefit of utilising the property while increasing in value, rental return and wealth.
Strong capital growth and rental return
A well-located property may yield higher capital growth and rental returns than an investor would be able to achieve locally in Australia.

WHY MANCHESTER UK?
Situated in the north-west of England, Manchester is the second largest city in the UK, and the sixth largest city in Europe. Recent years have seen a dramatic growth in Manchester’s fortunes where urban redevelopment and increased economic prosperity has led to a population boom where today Manchester is one of the fastest growing urban areas in the United Kingdom with a population of more than half a million.
WHAT’S HAPPENING ON THE SUPPLY SIDE?
Not enough homes are being built to meet current needs. Manchester council is aiming to build 25,000 new homes over the next 10 years that’s 2,500 per year. 2016 only saw 1,113 completions with previous years lagging much further behind. So, not only are we not meeting current demands but we are also playing catch up from years where there were next to no completions. The situation will not improve any time soon.
