The Bristol property market is one of the most vibrant across the whole of the UK. Right now, with Brexit having just taken place, but trade talks still to come, plus a new government with plans still being developed, the impact of all this on the economy with be significant for everyone – and especially property investors.
Chris will present an overview of the Bristol Buy To Let Market, including the impact of the current position post Brexit on the economic forecast and the market – covering topics such as
- Interest rates
- House prices and
- Rates of return on capital
Chris is a very knowledgeable speaker and his talk will be of considerable interest to all investors, both in our own local Bristol market and across the UK.
We are looking forward to a fascinating evening, as we get to grips with the interim arrangements following Brexit – and with trade talks about to start.
