Unsure about Brexit? Look to the European property market

With so much talk around Brexit, the heat has been diverted around the around the government’s decisions about the property market. Quite an extreme diversionary tactic, but none the less, very effective!

However, with the spotlight firmly on our European neighbours, what exactly is going on in the housing markets of our closest neighbours, and is there any opportunities for investment over the Channel?

According to research by international currency experts, World First, investing in the Netherlands could be the answer for savvy investors looking to avoid stamp duty hikes. Our Dutch neighbors enjoy the highest rental yields in the EU, with an average yield of 6.57%.

Sensible investors would do well to avoid Sweden which has a poor yield of 2.88%.

The UK came 21st out of 24 European countries, with an average rental yield of 4.28%. whilst not the best yield, many landlords prefer to invest in the UK in order to be on hand to manage their investments and their tenant’s requirements.
