The North West of England tops the charts as the best place to invest

High annual rental yields, whereas the South East benefits from huge increases in house prices.

The North West of England topped the tables as the most lucrative area to invest in property to achieve high rental yields; and with four renters vying for each property, there’s no shortage of demand. Conversely, those who have invested in the South East and London would benefit from the increase in house prices. So, where exactly are the best places to invest in property in the UK?

Buying property in Liverpool is a sound investment. Liverpool comes in a close second on the table of the best places to invest in property to achieve high rental yields. Liverpool is undergoing several regeneration schemes focusing on Liverpool docks and housing that upon completion will only raise house prices in the area as it increases in desirability. Liverpool’s L1 postcode in particular is on the up, still remaining affordable but having experienced a rise in house prices of 41.2%.

Liverpool’s huge student population means that there is always a requirement for accommodation, and this coupled with low house prices and high rental values allows investors to maximize their yields.
