We have been investing in Liverpool and its surrounding areas for almost a decade. Unlike places in the south of the UK, investment returns are much greater and there is no need to rely on speculative short term appreciation for a return. Liverpool is becoming more and more a target for national and overseas investors with high demand for student accommodation and luxury living.
Liverpool's Student population is huge with a population of 70,000 spread mainly across University of Liverpool, John Moores University, Liverpool Hope University and Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts. The changing student markets provide lots of new opportunities to investors. The days of run down, cheap student accommodation are over. Students now look to more luxurious living spaces during their studies which is priced into investments to provide high returns.
Large investments are being made into the city providing a great boost to the local economy in years to come. These include: the £5.6 billion Liverpool Waters program underway, a new Liverpool2 port, the massive £400m regeneration scheme at the Knowledge Quarter, Project Jennifer, football stadium projects and not forgetting Liverpool's leading role in the Northern Powerhouse. All these factors make Liverpool's property market attractive for investors like us as we continue to take advantage of the opportunities the city and its surrounding areas has to offer.
