Meshal Al-Melhem the managing director ofBlue Print Company announced that: “the time has come to direct Kuwaiti individual or corporate investments to the safe countries in so far as economic and political circumstances are concerned. The objective is to keep these investments away from economic and political vicissitudes that we witness in the Middle East.”

During the opening of the first exhibition for the 2015/ 2016real-estate season to present real-estates in North England,Al-Melhem added that: investors are hurrying up to search for investments which would help them get more profitable returns to compensate their losses in the local market. This is a wrong decision. Yet unavoidable additional losses would result if the investor is not cautious enough and look carefully for the right choices.

One of the most important elements which the investor should observe is the site of the property, future prospects and the degree of economic development of the whole area. He should also obtain fair evaluation of the price of the real-estate from specialized and impartial experts.

The biggest risk to the UK commercial and residential property markets was always from the potential for an unstable government, which would have undermined economic and consumer confidence, leading to weaker demand, investment and transactional activity.

David Cameron’s Conservative Party look set to secure sufficient parliamentary seats to create a working majority, which should boost market confidence. Post UK elections, the new Conservative-led government promises “more of the same” in terms of housing market policy. The main market impact is likely to be seen through renewed economic and consumer confidence following the return of what looks likely to be a relatively sustainable government. In the housing market this should be expressed through rising transaction volumes in Q2 and Q3, and price rises in the mainstream market during the remainder of 2015.

According to Knight Frank’s market research on price forecast; the UK mainstream house price forecast from 2015 to 2019 = 18.2%, and the Knight Frank Prime Central London house price forecast from 2015 to 2019 = 22.1%
