The Buy to Let boom is back

August 12, 2011Article by Ray Withers

Humyak House, Duke Street, Liverpool

A report released this week by ARLA (the Association of Residential Letting Agents) which stated that there had been a surge in the number of landlords buying properties in the last 12 months caught my eye as it backed up my belief that the UK Buy to Let boom is back.

The operations manager at ARLA also stated that “Some towns across the UK are suitable for rental investment as they have high numbers of students”, one such location is Liverpool with it’s 53,000 students.

Our last project, St Andrew’s House located in the city centre met our clients demand for low entry level investments with double digit returns and sold out within a matter of weeks. I have therefore been excited this week to be able to offer a superb new pre-launch opportunity for our clients to invest in student accommodation in Liverpool.

Humyak House is located on Duke Street in the heart of Liverpool, close to universities and the City centre. It is a 60 unit en-suite project less than 30 seconds walk from Liverpool One Shopping  Centre and on the same street as Arena House, one our previous students project which has now opened.

Prices start from £48,000 and deliver a 10% Net yield, again assured for the first year.

This will be the last UK pre-launch student opportunity from this developer where our investors have been receiving the yields predicted since we launched our first project over 18 months ago so contact Property Frontiers today on +44 (0) 1865 202 700 for your first choice of unit.
