We at RW Invest offer some of the most promising opportunities for investment in both student accommodation and residential property for sale in the UK. Having sold country-wide, the two areas with the most fruitful successes have proven to be Liverpool and Manchester, set to enjoy both the highest average rental and house price growth rates post-Brexit.

For those looking for buy to let advice on residential properties, here are some of the best areas for buy to let UK property investment along with a selection of some of our top types of property to make your property searches a little easier.

What is a good yield on a rental property UK?

If you’re a new investor, you might have heard a lot about rental yields. Rental yields are a percentage that relates to the kind of returns you can expect from your investment, and make up an important part of the UK property market. But what is a good yield on a rental property in the UK? Well, typically, a good yield is considered around 6% or above, and many of the postcodes in the Liverpool and Manchester areas achieve this.

Currently, Liverpool is an investment location that has an above average rental yield of 5.05%, with Manchester reaching 5.55%. By comparison, London currently sits at just above 3.05%. This makes Liverpool and Manchester some of the best areas when you want to find a UK investment property that offers the best rental returns.  When you need advice on investing in property for beginners, considering the best area to invest in is a good step. This way, you can improve your chances of making the best returns and financial gain moving forward.

Best Yields UK

Capital growth in your buy to let property investment UK

Another critical factor to consider is the potential your property might have for capital growth (often also referred to as capital appreciation)- over time. This is the amount your property value is set to increase by and is affected by the popularity of your UK property market area.

To future-proof an investment, every property investor should think about the most lucrative buy to let property investment UK areas. This will give you both the highest possible capital growth and net rental yield to improve your rental income. UK house prices are also growing at a significant rate in the two north west cities, Liverpool and Manchester, creating a good opportunity to acquire a strong level of capital appreciation.

Did you know? Even while the amount of active housing developments in the UK has reached numbers more significant than ever before, this total is still far outweighed by the demand from those in need of housing. The investment property UK market is in no way oversaturated, and so there has never been a better time to expand your property portfolio by investing in the UK.

What does Brexit mean for an investment property for sale in the UK?

Despite Brexit trepidation, our forecasts still show promising signs for the future, and the Investment property UK market is set to prosper in the face of uncertainty. It is estimated that both the national average for house price growth and rental yield will improve by 12.6%. Again, Liverpool and Manchester’s estimates come in ahead of the pack, with a 16.5% house price growth estimate, and a 17.6% improvement for rental growth.
