Should you consider property investment in Liverpool?

16th September 2021

Liverpool is without a doubt one of the most renowned cities in the world. Famous for its culture, football teams and The Beatles to name a few, Liverpool has been completely transformed over the last few decades into one of the UK’s leading locations for property investment. With this in mind, we though we’d take a look into the performance of Liverpool’s property market and breakdown the investment potential the city has on offer.

Liverpool Property Market Overview

The last few years have been transformative for the waterside city. The population continues to grow year after year thanks to both the wealth of opportunities available in the city as well as the Liverpool lifestyle. This increase has resulted in an increase in demand when it comes to property in the city, something massively evident when looking at the house prices. According to Zoopla, houses in Liverpool have increased in value by over 15.4% in the last 5 years. This impressive growth is greater than the likes of London, Birmingham, Glasgow and more!

In fact, in the 12 months prior to April 2021, Liverpool’s house price growth outpaced London by almost 5 times – with a 16.7% increase for Liverpool compared to 3.7% in the capital. The rental market in the city is equally as positive. 6 Liverpool postcodes were featured in Totally Money’s Top 25 buy-to-let areas ranking – with L1 ranking as number 1! This rate of growth is somewhat unprecedented in the property market, and has no doubt been spurred on by the huge amounts of regeneration in the city.

Liverpool Regeneration

Ever since its year as the European Capital of Culture, Liverpool has experienced extensive regeneration throughout the city, and will continue in this vein for the foreseeable future. The city is currently undergoing a series of transformational developments and regeneration projects that will transform Liverpool well into the 21st century.

Developments such as the Liverpool One Shopping Centre, the Echo Arena and the £5.5 billion Liverpool Waters regeneration project have all played their part in transforming Liverpool into one of the UK’s most prosperous cities, and a plethora of upcoming schemes look set to build on this impressive foundation.

A massive £14 billion regeneration led renaissance is currently underway in the city that will no doubt enhance the city’s already impressive investment reputation. The scheme will deliver 10,000 new homes, a brand new, state-of-the-art football stadium for Everton FC, a new cruise terminal, a new TV and Film hub as well as £250m of road infrastructure and 2 million sq ft of commercial office space – all of which will massively benefit both the local economy and property market.

Liverpool Property Market Forecast

Given this impressive amount of regeneration over the next few years, it’s no surprise to see the forecast for Liverpool’s property market looking so strong. JLL have forecast that in the period between 2020-2024, house prices in the city are set to increase by over 13%, whilst rental growth is set to reach 14.8% in the same period.

Liverpool offers one of the most unique locations to invest in in the entire world. It’s immense growth ever since being crowned as the European Capital of Culture mixed with a young and growing population as well as an extremely enviable lifestyle in the city have culminated in something of a perfect property investment storm.

The city is set to see both house prices and rents increase at an extremely impressive rate over the coming years, something that will only benefit property investors who are looking in the area.
