Liverpool Property Investment
Affordable Property Prices and Strong Capital Growth
The good news for Liverpool investors is that Liverpool is one of the most affordable major cities in the UK for property, with strong capital growth on the horizon.
As of October 2021, the average property price in Liverpool was £171,221. In the 12 months to January 2021, Liverpool property prices had reportedly grown by as much as 23.37% according to the UK House Price Index, highlighting the city’s strong capital growth – even during the uncertainty brought by the Covid-19 pandemic.
By 2025, recent predictions from Savills show that the North West region is set to see the highest growth rates of 18.8%, exceeding any other UK region including London.
Liverpool Rental Demand Is High
Liverpool boasts high levels of rental demand from students and young professionals.
More university graduates are staying within the city, as Liverpool has one of the top graduate retention rates along with London, Birmingham, and Manchester.
Students are typically drawn to city centre accommodation due to the proximity to their campus and city nightlife, which is why properties like City Point and The Bridewell in Liverpool are so popular.
Plus, working professionals are now choosing to rent in the city centre due to accessible public transport links and employment opportunities.
Other areas in Liverpool that are rising in popularity include Crosby in North Liverpool, with developments like Sky Gardens offering the perfect coastal retreat from city life.
Liverpool Is a Top Regeneration City
Huge regeneration projects like Liverpool One, the Knowledge Quarter, and Liverpool Waters have seen unloved regions like the Baltic Triangle become some of the coolest neighbourhoods in the UK.
Since 2012, there has been over £4 billion worth of investment into new developments across the city, with £14 billion worth of schemes in the pipeline and over 270 major new projects planned.
Liverpool investors should also explore areas with a lot of potential growth in the pipeline. An example could be with the Northern docks area of the city.
As the Liverpool Waters regeneration scheme adds new neighbourhoods, the demand for rentals will rise here.
Wirral Waters is another regeneration scheme planned, which will revitalise the Wirral area and the property market in areas like Birkenhead.
