Population growth + housing shortage = Investment Opportunity
Record levels of population growth combined with housing supply at a 100 year low will see a property boom hit the U.K in the next 5 years.
The latest census shows the UK’s population has increased by a record 7% (4 million) in the last decade to just over 63 million – which is almost equivalent to adding the entire city of Manchester every year.
The UK is now more crowded than any other major country in the EU or G8. With 402 people for every square kilometer, their population density is four times that of France and in the next 20 years will be double that of Germany – a country, which is almost three times larger.
Property Prices to Increase by More Than 20% over the Next 5 Years
Manchester based buy to let experts Sequre Property Investment have named the top four UK locations expected to bring in the biggest property returns over the next 12 months.
Their research covers a range of advantageous factors including low property prices, high yields and rental demand, to capital growth and public/private investment – everything that a landlord takes into consideration when searching for an investment property.
U.K Cities to Watch
With a proven track record in spotting property trends, Sequre has provided insight to the following four cities firmly on the 2018 property watch list:
Predicted Price Increase: 28.2% over the next 5 years*A
Economy Worth: £59.6bn
Graham Davidson, managing director at Sequre Property, names Manchester as a firm buy to let favourite:
“Manchester’s successful property market has remained consistent for several years now. Spearheading the way for northern cities, it’s no surprise Manchester has shown impressive levels of growth in the latest report from Hometrack. It’s widely known that there is a huge supply/demand imbalance and quality rental accommodation continues to be highly sought-after, resulting in high city centre yields for investors.”

Graham Davidson, managing director at Sequre Property, explains why Liverpool has become the one to watch in 2018:
“Liverpool was a strong contender in 2017 but 2018 will really be the year investors take note. Property prices are still low but creeping up slowly, so now is the time for investors to benefit from the strong capital growth predicted over the next 5 years. With the amount of investment being ploughed into the area, particularly the £5.5 billion Liverpool Waters project, Liverpool is without a doubt a hotspot for investment.”
