&#39Property not about to subside&#39

Property is still a good bet for investors despite doom and gloom

predictions, claim experts.

While some of the biggest lenders believe the property market has peaked,

some pundits still see rental and commercial property as a sure way of

giving returns of over 7 per cent.

Last month&#39s Nationwide house price index suggested price rises are

unsustainable and the market must slow.

Annuity Bureau director Ronnie Lymburn says: “I still think, with its

combination of capital growth and rental yield, you are better off looking

at commercial and residential rental property than some other asset

classes.”

Investment manager for Liberty International Asset Management&#39s portfolio

property fund Robin White says: “The imbalance between supply and demand

has been sustained because of the lack of properties being built, even with

investment banks releasing some properties. Yields still stand at around 7

per cent.”
