Can you highlight some key factors driving investment in Liverpool’s property

The capital appreciation and rental yields are consistently ranked among the top performing areas in the UK, whilst the average property price is significantly lower than the UK average, this makes investment opportunities in Liverpool some of the most accessible and lucrative in the UK.

Major projects such as Liverpool Waters, the construction of the new Everton FC stadium, the reimagining of the Littlewoods building, a waterfront with breathtaking views, and a city rich in history, music and culture.

Are there any emerging trends or developments in Liverpool that investors should be
aware of?

As the city receives more popularity with current property investors, we will start to see an increase in price reflecting the regeneration that is happening. A population strategy for most investors is purchasing new developments off-plan and benefitting from the significant growth year on year before completion, maximising their ROI.

How do you assess the current state of the Liverpool property market?

What are the current market conditions like in terms of supply, demand, and pricing?

In Liverpool there is not enough supply of quality accommodation to meet the demand of the growing population. With a consistent influx of young professionals moving to the city each year, rental demand is always increasing.

Are there any challenges or opportunities investors should be mindful of?

The challenges would be that due to a under supply of property there are currently limited options available with new properties selling out quickly, meaning investors must move fast. With Liverpool now firmly on the map as a UK hotspot more developers are starting projects in the city creating a wide variety of investment opportunities.

How has the market evolved over the past few years, and what do you anticipate for
its future trajectory?

We have seen popularity grow year on year attracting new investors from across UK and overseas. With the cities projects currently underway we have seen savvy investors invest early into the city to benefit from the capital appreciation these projects will generate. Liverpool is already known as one of the best performing cities in the UK and we see this becoming more evident in the future.

One of our now repeat investors purchased outside of London for the first time and chose Liverpool as her city of choice. Initially this was a little out of her comfort zone, as she usually invests very local and manages the properties herself. She decided purchase multiple properties off-plan and upon completion was welcomed with a noticeable amount of equity in her newly completed apartments.

We also arranged for the properties to be fully managed, which was coming out at a NET yield 2% higher than originally forecasted when the properties were first secured. She has now gone on to make further investments in the city and has recommended friends and family.
