The region is second only to London in terms of GDP. It is also the biggest region in the UK in terms of population, with 9.3 million people living there.
With such a large population, the South East has massive potential for property investors. Most of the South East also falls within the London commuter belt, making the region an attractive location for an investment property.
The South West has the highest average property prices outside of London. The overall average cost of a house in the region is £494,015, compared to London, where the average price is £727,800.
Despite the average prices being well above the national average, the South East has shown strong capital growth potential in recent years. The overall sold prices in the region in 2022 were up 7% on 2021 and up 14% on 2020*.
The South East has a strong rental demand due to the region’s higher purchase prices and proximity to London. Locations such as Portsmouth offer rental yields of around 5.6%**.
