        Best Areas to Invest in Property in Glasgow

        Now you know a bit more about property investment in Glasgow, it’s time to start looking at the best areas to invest in Glasgow.

        The Scottish city has a lot to offer, so we’ve broken down each key area of the city with its most rewarding postcode so you don’t have to.

        City Centre and North

        Average Yield: 7.63%
        Average House Price: £253,000
        Glasgow City Centre offers a variety of modern and traditional properties at an affordable price tag.

        The fashionable Merchant City and Charing Cross are trendy locations for young professionals, while Cowcaddens is popular with students due to its proximity to the university.

        G2 is the most rewarding postcode, seeing returns of £1,609 PCM.

        West End

        Average Yield: 6.46%
        Average House Price: £139,577
        Only a stone’s throw away from the University of Glasgow’s main campus, West End experiences high rental demand – especially for student property.

        However, the easy access to the city centre, a wealth of green space, and excellent transport links make West End a sought-after location for families.

        The highest yields can be found in G81 from an income of £751 PCM.

        East End

        Average Yield: 7.38%
        Average House Price: £105,409
        A recent wave of investment following the 2014 Commonwealth Games has transformed the East End into a hotspot for young professionals and families.

        In 2020, East End’s Dennistoun was named the 8th coolest neighbourhood in the world (yes, the world) by TimeOut magazine.

        G34 has one of the best yields in the city from a monthly income of £648 PCM, but you may need to act fast if you want a Glasgow buy to let bargain.


        Average Yield: 5.63%
        Average House Price: £184,819
        A region known for its industry and iconic sporting venues, the Southside of the River Clyde is a great place for Glasgow investment property.

        G73 is the postcode with the highest yields from an income of £867PCM.

        Last year, the G73 town of Rutherglen was labelled the best area in Scotland to invest in property by The Sunday Times for its impressive rental yields and growth potential.

        With gross rental yields now at 5.63%, the region is still one of the most potentially lucrative areas to invest in.

            I have had the pleasure of experiencing exceptional customer service from RWinvest. Adam and Michelle were remarkable and were exceedingly supportive in facilitating the acquisition of two properties in Liverpool, at "The Gateway." Their guidance was instrumental in the purchase of the properties and I express my utmost satisfaction with their assistance, and I am inclined to not only endorse but also consider any property advertised by RWinvest.
