The first thing we need to address before we start reeling off our UK cities is our rationale behind deciding exactly what makes these cities the best places to buy property in the UK.
At the centre of our decisions is a data-driven approach.
We use the latest official Land Registry data and Zoopla rental figures to calculate rental yields.
We also use the latest Savills predictions released in July 2021 to provide a house price forecast for the next five years.
To be strict and stay true to the meaning behind the best places to buy property, we are only including cities with lucrative rental yields above 5%.
We also follow a set of criteria to help us evaluate a cities potential to determine if it’s the best property investment location in 2021.
