Liverpool leads the way as regional cities buck the trend

The latest Hometrack UK Cities House Price Index has reconfirmed the strength of regional property markets, with Liverpool leading the pack. The March 2019 figures reveal a year-on-year price increase of 5.7% for the average Liverpool home, which is now priced at £122,100.

Regional cities are also leading the way when it comes to sales volumes, with Liverpool once more showing the rest how it’s done. While sales volumes in southern cities are languishing some 13% lower than in 2015, sales in Liverpool, conversely, are 19% higher than they were four years ago.

“Liverpool is the shining star when it comes to regional city performance right now. It’s enjoying a busy property market, which high sales volumes and rapidly rising prices – a great backdrop for investing in properties in sought-after locations.”

Nestled in the L3 postcode district, The Tannery is just such a property. The striking building’s architecture was inspired by the former leatherworks that gave the site its name. Available from £85,000, the contemporary apartments have been designed to capitalise on their prime location, with stylish interiors and high quality specifications due to attract professional tenants looking to be at the heart of the action in Liverpool.
This resurgence of city centre living has seen many regional cities enjoy rapid growth in recent years. Both Manchester and Birmingham continue to perform well, according to the Hometrack data. Manchester’s property prices increased by 5.1% in the year to March 2019, while Birmingham’s went up by 4.2%.

“While we’re seeing a slowing down of the housing market in some southern areas, the Midlands and regions further north continue to enjoy healthy property price growth and sustained demand from both buyers and renters. Many of our property investment UK opportunities in recent years have focused on these key regional markets, which have consistently delivered excellent results for those who have invested in them.”
