Investors look to Liverpool for top 2021 yields

January 15, 2021

Liverpool has long been a favourite with buy-to-let investors seeking affordable, high-yielding properties. The city’s attractive lifestyle and thriving business environment equate to plenty of demand for rental homes from working professionals. Meanwhile, the average property there costs just £126,600, compared to a UK average of £222,900.  

When online mortgage broker Mojo Mortgages carried out research on the best buy-to-let yields in the UK in 2020, it was Liverpool that topped the table as the highest-yielding city in the country. The L7, L6, L1, L15 and L4 postcode areas all appeared in the top 20 list, with yields in these areas ranging from 7.4% to 10.3%.

“Liverpool was a strong performer in terms of yields in 2020 and we expect this trend to continue over the course of 2021. The city has an attractive low entry point and plentiful demand for rental accommodation, making it a key location for buy-to-let investors to focus on this year.”

Dale Anderson, Managing Director, Fabrik Invest

One property attracting considerable interest already in 2021 is The Roscoe – a collection of 82 beautifully presented one- and two-bedroom apartments in a premium L1 location. One-bedroom apartments at The Roscoe are priced from £155,950, while two-bedroom homes start at £185,000, making this an extremely affordable option for homes in the heart of Liverpool city centre. With the £2 billion, 56-hectare Upper Central regeneration scheme on the doorstep, The Roscoe also delivers excellent long-term potential. 

2021 looks set to be a good year for buy-to-let investors, in Liverpool and elsewhere. According to Hamptons International, falling buy-to-let apartment prices mean that yields are now at their highest level since the firm’s records began in 2016, rising from an average of 5.2% to 5.6% over the course of 2020. For the right homes in the right locations, this figure will likely be even higher during 2021.

“We’re experiencing a great deal of demand for buy-to-let apartments such as those at The Roscoe right now. Investors are looking for easy, affordable options. The use of Zoom consultations is underpinning strong sales activity, with investors keen to participate in one-to-one video consultations that they can use to run through several properties at a time. 2021 is already looking to be a big year for the buy-to-let sector and in particular for Liverpool.”

Wayne Venter

International Business Development Manager

Wayne has been in the property industry for over 17 years. He started out selling residential properties in the northern suburbs of Sandton, South Africa, for one of the bigger real estate brands, before moving to a boutique, Johannesburg-based property developer. He worked at a senior level, specialising in residential developments on the north coast of KZN and various other areas of Northern Johannesburg.

Wayne moved to selling luxury, free standing homes and apartments in Sandton, Johannesburg in 2006, having joined the Country’s leading real estate brand and within six months was leading the team. In 2008, he began to focus exclusively on the luxury apartments in central Sandton, priced from approximately R2 million to R60 million. Over the years, he has also added commercial property sales and rentals to his repertoire, as well as building his own investment property portfolio between 2011 and 2018.

By 2018, realising where the South African property market was headed, he sold out of his investment property portfolio to de-risk and went looking for a real estate company to buy into. South Africa’s property market was extremely volatile at that time, so Wayne took the initiative and moved to London to work in property in the UK.
