Buy-to-let investors have plenty to celebrate in terms of Liverpool’s commerciality, having seen apartment prices in the city shoot up by 21.87% over the past five years, while rental yields have consistently been in the top five or top ten highest in the UK. According to JLL: ‘City and Submarket House Price Growth’, the forecast capital growth set to rise a further 22.80% in the next 5 years (2017-2021) too.

Combining these fantastic historic and forecast capital growth statistics, in tandem with that with major regeneration projects that the city of Liverpool is undergoing, (projects that include: Lime Street station, Anfield and the Liverpool2 Superport, the Knowledge Quarter, Project Jenifer and the new transport infrastructure system, labelled ‘Lime Square’) the scene is set for rental property in Liverpool to enjoy strong demand for years to come. The Northern Powerhouse initiative cements they city’s position as one of the UK’s leading locations.

A boom in demand for good-size, contemporary apartments and small family homes, creating an excellent opportunity for buy-to-let investors in Liverpool had led to shifting demographics. More than 23% of the city’s renting households are now couples, compared to less than 14% ten years ago. This is very positive for any potential investors looking to take advantage of Liverpool’s commerciality.

Liverpool is a thriving city that enjoys comprehensive and reliable commuter links between the centre and the surrounding suburbs. This is great news for buy-to-let property investment in Liverpool, as the city offers a wide range of locations experiencing strong tenant demand. Allerton, to the south east, and city centre properties near the Strand District and hugely popular Baltic Triangle are some of the areas currently providing Liverpool property investors with excellent returns.

The commercial district is backed by a healthy services sector with industries including public administration, education, health, banking, finance and insurance. It’s a vibrant mix in which creativity and entrepreneurship can flourish. It’s no coincidence that Santander chose Liverpool as the location of its first business incubator, while Launch22 opened its first non-London incubator there.
