Cash is king.

The UK is certainly headed to a significant economic downturn - how deep and how long remains to be seen.

Cash flow to weather the storm has focused the minds of investors of all categories.

Buyers who are focused on capital appreciation over the short term would be well advised to think carefully before purchasing in a falling market without a considerable discount at purchase or a clear pathway for adding value and uplifting the property or portfolio. 

Some of the economic factors that will be important to monitor in addition to mortgage rates and terms, property values and rental yields include the following:

-Unemployment rates

-Economic activity locally and regionally

-Government policy regarding financing of an increasing deficit

-Associated taxation changes including income tax, corporation tax, stamp duty and capital allowances, council tax and rates, the level of the pound, and the performance of key international economies
