Liverpool leads the UK's property investment market in 2020 (and beyond)

Britain’s property market is on the rise in 2020, and investors both domestic and overseas are beginning to look towards the area once again with a heightened sense of confidence.

While London’s long stagnating and expensive market is still making up for ground lost in the wake of Brexit, and its surrounding air of doubt that has filled homebuyers in the country, northern areas have been thriving, and will continue to do so throughout this upcoming year and beyond into the future.

Leading the pack as one of the most viable investment areas this year is Liverpool, a powerful North Western city that served as the European capital of culture in 2008, and that currently holds the mantle of European Football champion through Liverpool F.C. Here are some of the factors behind Liverpool’s enticing market draw for investors, as well as some information on a specific sector of the city to get excited about.

Powerful Postcodes – Exciting statistics for investors

Liverpool’s dominance in the property landscape is evident when looking at the statistics on rental yield income, provided by TotallyMoney in their indicative Buy to Let yield map. Liverpool is the only city in the entire country to reach an average of over 10% in its L1 postcode, and it also features a bunch of its other postcodes in the top 25 nationwide.

Of course, this is an extremely important thing for investors to take into account when thinking of where to invest in the country, as it will decide how much they stand to make back from their purchase each month, and how quickly they can recoup the initial cost. Again, the risk of void periods – time without a tenant in which investors can’t earn money through rent - is also reduced within Liverpool, as its rising tenant demand is reassuring.

Hotspot in-focus – The Baltic Triangle

The Baltic Triangle area of the city is a prime example of why Liverpool is one of the most popular areas in the UK at the moment, not just from an investor’s standpoint, but also in the minds of potential tenants and residents – which of course in turn feeds back to the investors, as it means that there is an increased amount of demand for the properties that they own and are renting out.

RWinvest, a property investment company with their main office in Liverpool, are one of the many preparing for the future of the Baltic Triangle’s booming tech sector. Their Parliament Square development that is currently in progress will be a landmark residential building in their area, attracting the young professionals and workers operating out of the Baltic Triangle with its luxury interiors and amenities.

Affordable house pricing – Exciting statistics for investors

As mentioned earlier, one of the benefits of investment in Liverpool, particularly for those that are starting off in their property journey, is that house prices are on average a lot lower that some of the other popular spots in the country. According to Zoopla, Liverpool property prices sit at around £178,668 on average, as opposed to a whopping £657,770 in London. In fairness to the overall positive trend in the market, both of these prices are steadily on the rise in 2020.

Another thing to consider here is the fact that some properties in their off-plan phases will be offered at an early-bird price, and with the amount of regeneration ongoing in Liverpool at the moment in preparation for the future, there is ample opportunity.
