In May 2017 Liverpool was named one of the best UK cities for buy-to-let investment due to a combination of the low property costs and the strong rents achievable. Liverpool offers rental yields in the order of eight percent for the right property, once mortgage costs have been removed. With demand for rental property at record levels it is unsurprising that Liverpool with the high level of demand from tenants is a hotspot for investors eager to add to their property portfolios. As returns are being squeezed in the usual forms of investment such as ISA’s, and the mortgage criteria becoming tighter for buyers, buy-to-lets in Liverpool has gone from strength to strength. Demand from tenants has risen by 37% in the North West in 2017 and is the location of demand along with Manchester in the Northern Powerhouse area.
Liverpool Student population: the student populated in now up to 60,000 with 60% requiring accommodation. Investors buy in Liverpool as they know the yields are strong due to the year on year student demand.

However, investors need to make sure they buy in professionally run developments with an experienced property management team who are capable of can taking care of the property as well as the tenants and not just be tempted to go for the higher yields.
