If you're looking for UK property hotspots, try Croydon in South London, which we highlighted here previously (I actually bought in Croydon myself back in 2013).
Brett Allegre-Wood wrote this piece yesterday, which we agree strongly with:
"In 2013 London Mayor, Boris Johnson, announced a regeneration plan for the area and confirmed a £1bn investment to transform the area’s economy and drive employment. Plans will see public spaces transformed, the town centre revamped and the introduction of sophisticated, modern new homes.
Along with the Mayor’s commitment, Croydon is also finding support from the private sector with Westfield & Hamerson joining forces and investing a further £1bn in a new, international shopping destination, The Croydon Partnership.
House prices are still at accessible levels; Croydon is currently the fifth cheapest borough in London, and the perfect place to invest, especially considering the regeneration plans and consequently the predicted rises in house prices.
