Why settle for 'average' when 'above average' requires less effort?

by 27. March 2017 11:06
It’s a funny word, ‘average’. We use it as part of our decision-making processes, like when we look at ‘average’ temperatures to decide where and when to go on holiday. But in many other contexts it can be quite a damning word – ‘an average student’, ‘a pretty average performance by United’; it implies mediocrity. So is there any such thing as an ‘average’ buy-to-let investment? Not in our first sense – because every property is different, every landlord is different, every location is different and every tenant is different. But in our second sense there certainly is. Because by definition you’re looking for an average house in an average street &ndash... [More]

Popular London Business Districts

by 31. July 2015 10:58
London is once again the most popular tourist destination in the world, with businesses to benefit from £13bn of tourist spending in 2015, according to a report from Mastercard.

The number of graduates, working age population, and even the cost of ho... [More]

Why property investors are parking their cash at Glasgow Airport

by 29. May 2015 11:34
Shrewd property investors on the lookout for lucrative property investments in the United Kingdom are increasingly turning their eye to the commercial property asset class. With UK interest rates held at 0.5% for another month by the Bank of England and stocks and shares considered too risky by most and certainly not giving good returns, it is little wonder this sector is seeing an increasing number of speculators. Airports are big business: Glasgow Airport accounted for a record number of travellers in 2014, with on average 22,000 passengers per day travelling through the airport. When using the airport, a good proportion of those users will require car parking, and this is why clients of FJP Investment have been investing in Glasgow Ai... [More]
