Property investing has always been popular in Singapore, especially with the testimonials of successful investors who have struck their first pot of gold, prompting many others to hop onto this lucrative venture.
But what about overseas property investing?
With less saturated markets, investing in overseas properties is one of the best ways to divest one’s portfolio for more steady gains at lower risk. Despite this, it is understandably intimidating for investors unfamiliar with foreign markets. If you’re looking to invest in properties overseas, here are some factors for your consideration.

Of these, buying from a trustworthy developer is one of the most important things to note since they play a huge role in the development process from start to finish.
With that in mind, read on to find out more about this excellent investment opportunity, spearheaded by London’s leading developer, St George, a member of an FTSE 100 company.
Meet West London, the top investor hotspot with a stable market and rising property prices
There are many properties around the world that are available, but if you speak to some of the most seasoned investors, London is a city that often comes up. The London real estate market has been consistently stable over the past 20 years, even through political and economic uncertainty, providing hesitant buyers a safe avenue into the overseas market that’s secure and profitable.

West London, in particular, is one of the top investor hotspots with well-furnished neighbourhoods and exciting regeneration plans underway to maximise its potential as a global destination. One of them, as you may have heard, is the famous Chelsea district, a vibrant waterside community near the River Thames.
Think the iconic ION Orchard of Singapore – Chelsea is home to luxury brands, renowned Michelin restaurants, and even the popular Chelsea Football Club! Endless high-end boutiques, fine dining and antique art – in essence, the finest that London has to offer.

Housed in London’s most fashionable neighbourhood, Chelsea Creek is perfect for the modern city dweller. Made to let you live, work and play within the vicinity, connectivity is one of its best selling points. Residents can conveniently walk to Imperial Wharf Station and Fulham Broadway Station, just 4 minutes and 14 minutes away respectively.
Getting to popular attractions like Hyde Park, Sloane Square, Knightsbridge and King’s Road? A 24-minute drive away.
Spontaneous plans to picnic by the magnificent River Thames? All it takes is a 7-minute stroll. Besides such perks, past data has also shown that residences near waterfronts or green spaces can fetch a much higher resale price.
But the benefits don’t just stop there, from luxurious amenities to award-winning design, Chelsea Creek is a dream for any investor or resident.
