Should Liverpool be at the top of your investment list?

Whilst London, Manchester and Birmingham may have been the big city helter skelter ‘hotspots’ to shout about for investment over the past few years, investors may be turning their attentions to the city of Liverpool for tomorrow. Although yields are still good in the traditional three cities, high property prices are pushing both experienced and less experienced investors out of these cities to seek investment opportunities elsewhere. Tell me why Liverpool? Let us help explain because together we can work it out!

Liverpool postcodes were featured four times in a compilation of the top 20 buy-to-let hotspots, according to one major analyst yesterday, with London appearing on the list just once. Rental yields in some parts of Liverpool (not just Penny Lane) exceed that of properties in other locations, reaching more than 10% in some areas, whilst Liverpool property prices have risen to a lesser degree over the past five years compared to its popular alternatives. These low property prices are attributed, in part, to Liverpool’s misery and struggle after the financial crisis, where redundancies led to property repossession. This has led to a high proportion of property being unsold and sellers desperate to sell, with property prices to reflect this.

Among the 446,400 general population are over 50,000 students from three thriving universities, many needing a property to rent during their studies for their golden slumbers. The city is known to severely lack in good quality student accommodation, posing a prime investment opportunity.
Due to the low cost of living, many of these students also decide to base their working lives after university in the city. It is this low cost of living which serves as one of Liverpool’s main attractive qualities, pulling people from not only the surrounding areas into the city, but from across the country and world.

Huge investment in regeneration efforts across the city are also pushing the appeal factor of Liverpool, making it an attractive place for singletons, young couples, families and retirees to come together. On completion, the developments are likely to offer a fantastic standard of living in a sought after location. The developments will also see business opportunities, more tourist attractions and shops, all serving as job opportunities and thus attractive pulls for the city. With 22% of Liverpool’s entire housing stock being owned and let by private landlords, Liverpool’s popularity is something for investors to really take advantage of.
