US Property – Opportunity knocking

According to an article by Reuters on April 30, US home prices rose in February at their fastest rate in almost seven years, a fresh sign the US housing market is recovering. You can read the full article here.

Reuters’ article quoted the recent S&P/Case Shiller index of 20 metropolitan areas which was released last Tuesday. It showed that single-family home prices have risen by 9.3 percent in February from a year earlier.

According to the article, that data reinforces the view that rising home prices could make Americans feel better about spending this year. Nevertheless, there is still uncertainty over the US labour market which is still showing signs of weakness, potentially delaying the housing recovery’s strength.

When looking at the unbelievable housing collapse that fuelled the 2007-09 recession, it continues to look obvious that US housing has turned a corner. At UCG, we believe that this makes it an opportune time for investors to buy.

We, at UGC first wrote about the attractiveness of investing in the US property market back in September 2012, just as the US housing recovery was in its infancy.
