Houses are safer than buying gold
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.”
