Liverpool Investment Overview: A City With Global Appeal

Three world-class universities. A growing international student population. One of the UK’s top-performing real estate regions. It’s little wonder property investors from all over the world have chosen Liverpool. And they are still choosing it – real estate in Liverpool spends the shortest amount of time on the market than any other city in Britain. Crucially, the shortfall in high-quality PBSA for overseas students in the city centre marks the asset out as the one most coveted by investors in Liverpool.

A CENTRE OF EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE

Liverpool is a city synonymous with music, culture and academic excellence. It proudly boasts three high-ranking institutions, two of which have been named in the top five ‘best city locations’ by WhatUni. It means that Liverpool is often many students’ first choice, and is the reason why 50,000 students currently call the city their home.

INTERNATIONAL ACADEMIC PRESTIGE. A CLEAR INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY.

9,000 international students are enrolled at Liverpool’s universities. 22.4% of the University of Liverpool’s total student population are made up of over 100 different nationalities. The city also has one of the largest Chinese communities in Europe. Yet despite this, and the expected 10% rise in international student numbers by 2022, the type of quality PBSA these students want to find when they move here is in short supply.

A PROVEN REAL ESTATE MARKET

Liverpool is currently ranked among the UK’s top 10 buy-to-let hotspots. 6.56% average yields. 5.5% population growth in 10 years. 12,800 jobs created in just two years. The city is at the start of a growth curve. And with a £5 billion redevelopment programme just one of a number of projects currently ongoing in the city, that curve promises to continue its upward trajectory.
