Liverpool and Manchester Lead The Way For Buy To Let Investment

New research out this week has shown that the North West leads the way for buy to let investment opportunities in the United Kingdom in 2018.

In particular, the report highlighted the performances of Liverpool, as well as Manchester and Liverpool were a strong combination of capital appreciation and consistently increasing rental yields had resulted in an increase in interest from buy to let investors. 

The new report, released this week by Shawbrook Bank showed Liverpool topping the buy to let investment charts, due to the cities lower property prices and comparatively high rents.

Liverpool was closely followed by Manchester and Stockport for areas for investors to consider when looking for investment properties in the UK. The property in the North West also delivered a higher average yield at 5.4%, with Scotland being the next highest location at 5.30%. 

At present, the average house price in the North West is just under £160,000, whilst the UK average house price is £228,000, over 40% higher. Understandably, this has led to a large number of property investors beginning to consider the North West when building their property portfolios.
