Cheap mortgages, high rental yields, a growing supply-demand imbalance, low bank saving rates - there is an endless list of reasons to currently consider investing in property.

Property investment focus: Bristol

Bristol has the fastest growing population of any of the UK's core cities, including more singletons, significantly boosting demand for properties to buy and rent in the process.

The recent Census results showed that Bristol's population had increased by 10% in the past decade, while the city's population is increasingly young, with the proportion of those aged between 25 and 49 higher than the national average; suggesting that high long-term demand for housing is sustainable.

Property market forecast 2013: Home Counties and Yorkshire

With the UK economy now technically out of recession and growing signs that mortgage lending condition are improving, confidence in property price prospects is generally strengthening.

Just over a third of people surveyed by the Halifax recently forecast that the average UK home
price will rise over the next year, while a fifth predict they will fall. But whatever happens to values, most people agree that any over property price change over the next twelve months is likely to be marginal, with stark regional differences expected to continue to dominate the market in the UK.
