Experience Invest first pinpointed Liverpool as a UK property hotspot in 2012 and, since then, the city’s property market has witnessed substantial activity.
Liverpool as a UK property hotspot
Over the last 15 years the city has undergone a significant transformation. With billions of pounds worth of investment including the £5.5 billion redevelopment of the city’s waterfront, the £1 billion Knowledge Quarter project and continued investment in infrastructure, has helped Liverpool to emerge as the UK’s fastest growing city.
The resurgence of the city’s centre has seen Liverpool’s inner-city population increase by 181% between 2012 and 2015 – the fastest rate recorded in the UK (Centre for Cities).
As more young professionals, students and businesses relocate to the city, the demand for high quality housing is increasing at an unprecedented level, which is, in turn, putting pressure on the current supply.
Now is an ideal time for investors to capitalise on the continued growth of Liverpool and the demand for property across a range of sectors in the city.
Buy-to-let investors often look at the wider picture to determine the longevity of their potential purchase. From the stability of demand to potential rental and capital growth, a town or city with an established business district and vibrant economic prospects, can offer investors the strong returns.
With economic growth faster in Liverpool than in any other major city in the UK between 1998 and 2016, the Merseyside city has proven to be a popular choice for investment.
Since 2010, over 50,000 new jobs have been created, the number of start-up businesses in the city has hit record highs and inward investment increased by 6% in the north-west in the last year alone. These positives have helped to create a property market that is underpinned demand from an affluent demographic that values quality and location over cost.
Cities with a buoyant student population often boast the best rental returns for landlords.
Liverpool is a well-loved university city. Every year the city attracts students from all around the globe who attend one of the city’s five higher education establishments. The popularity of the city has seen student numbers swell to almost 60,000 in recent years; a number that is set to continue to rise in line with continued investment in the city’s well-established universities.
And it’s not just the residential and student accommodation markets where Liverpool’s property sector is flourishing. Investors in the commercial and hotel sectors have secured higher than average returns in recent years, largely to do with the strength of the city’s appeal as a tourist destination.
Ranked as the UK’s 5th most visited city by overseas tourists, Liverpool is one of the UK’s most iconic cities which appeals to many due to its rich cultural and historical heritage.
The city is also home to two world-class football teams, hosts the iconic Grand National horse race and regularly welcomes visitors at the Echo Arena for concerts and conferences.
Liverpool’s strong appeal across a wide range of sectors helps to underpin occupancy levels, allowing investors to secure reliable rental returns and to minimise void periods.
