          How Has The Baltic Triangle’s Innovative Business Scene Encouraged Investment?

          Due to the Baltic Triangle’s increasing reputation as one of the coolest neighbourhoods in the UK, demand for residential property has skyrocketed. Jobs in the tech sector are attracting young professionals from the millennial generation, who have been found to be far more likely to rent a property rather than own their own home.

          As mentioned earlier, salaries in the digital and tech sector are higher than the UK average, meaning that they have greater disposable income to spend on their rental accommodation. For property investors, this means that they can afford higher rental returns and higher-end properties. These young professionals are looking for modern, cutting-edge properties which offer excellent connectivity and fast WiFi speeds.

          The Baltic Triangle is perfect for this. Residents are increasingly looking for properties that provide solutions for wellness, sustainability and convenience. One Baltic Square is the perfect example of the modern, high-end apartments with a creative twist that people are looking for in the Baltic Triangle. Features like its roof gardens, open-plan design and location next to the popular Baltic Triangle are specifically designed with modern young professionals in mind. Another investment opportunity, Parliament Square, has proven very popular with buy to let investors from around the globe.

            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.
