Houses are safer than buy­ing gold

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

In the lat­est monthly sur­vey car­ried out by the World­wide Prop­erty Group, 88 per cent of re­spon­dents named prop­erty as the best op­tion for in­vest­ment.

Gold was sec­ond, with all other in­vest­ment op­tions, in­clud­ing shares, barely re­ceiv­ing a men­tion at all.

On the sub­ject of house prices, 71 per cent ex­pect val­ues to in­crease over the course of the year, with only 8 per cent an­tic­i­pat­ing a fur­ther fall.

Kevin Wilkes, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of the World­wide Prop­erty Group says: “The re­sults of this sur­vey are very en­cour­ag­ing as we can clearly see that con­fi­dence in the prop­erty mar­ket is con­tin­u­ing to in­crease.”
