Building or beginning your property portfolio means doing your research – investigating areas for rejuvenation, new headquarters or educational benefits, job increases, economy improvements and scrutinising the market for high annual rental yields, capital appreciation, high cash flow, demand for property, rising house prices and much more.

But here at Hawkhurst Alternative Investment we have done the work for you. Take a look below at some of the UK’s most promising investment opportunities to create the income you desire and a portfolio you only dreamed.

Manchester – The national average of privately rented properties is 18%, but Manchester exceeds this statistic, reaching 26.85%. Its impressive rental sector could be due to the fact that Manchester has 60% more 25-29 year olds than anywhere else in the United Kingdom. With the £800 million development of Manchester Airport and the new presence of MediaCityUK bringing with them a host of new businesses, Manchester is this years up and coming – a hugely exciting investment opportunity.

Leeds – It wasn’t long ago that Leeds had a better rental yield than London, now their property prices have climbed 6% over last year. With phase two of the HS2 rail project being one of Europe’s biggest rejuvenation projects, and more projects amounting to hundreds of millions of pounds being implemented in the heart of Northern England – Leeds is a very attractive proposition.

Sheffield – The city has been described as one of the Northern economic powerhouses and with the S1 postcode, properties can be invested in for under £70,000, creating gross yields of over 11%. Investment in Sheffield is also set to rise considerably with billions from foreign and UK Investors set to drive the economic growth in the city, which will generate thousands of jobs. The future of Investment lies here.

Lincoln – There is huge potential in the East Midlands with house prices set to increase by an impressive 13% over the next five years. Also benefiting from the HS2 project, the region will be bustling with activity and fast growth. Large scale rejuvenation for Lincoln means improving the city’s fundamentals which is great for property investors. The demand for rental properties is driving house prices up in the historic and beautiful location. One to do more than watch.

Liverpool – There is always a need for rental accommodation in Liverpool and with its low house prices, high rental values, the growing population of domestic and international students and the varied and continuous development plans for the city and its surrounding areas – Liverpool is an Investment there to happen.
