North West Offers Higher Yields and Capital Growth for Investors Priced out of South East

North West Offers Higher Yields and Capital Growth for Investors Priced out of South East
The North West offers much higher rental yields and capital growth for the property investors that are priced out of the South East, shows new research.
According to the latest UK Cities House Price Index from Hometrack, London’s house price growth has slowed to a three-year low, as Manchester, Salford and Liverpool all record the highest house price inflation of the UK’s major cities.

Combined yields of 10% in Manchester, 12% in Salford and a huge 14% in Liverpool are attracting investors who have been priced out of the South East.
The Hometrack figures show that Manchester recorded house price growth of 8.9% in 2016 against a national average of 7.2%.
However, London recorded growth of just 7.3% – its lowest annual rate for more than three years.
The other cities recording higher inflation than London were: Bristol (9.6%), Oxford (8.1%), Portsmouth (8.0%), Southampton (7.9%) and Birmingham (7.5%).
The Mistoria Group – specialists in high yielding property investment – believes that investors can benefit from capital growth and excellent yields in the North West, which far outstrip the South East.
The Managing Director of the firm, Mish Liyanage, explains: “Lots of investors from the South East and overseas have invested in Liverpool and Salford, buying high-quality properties around the universities. They have also renovated shabby properties with a top-end finish and are experiencing good occupancy rates from students, with year-round demand.
“Investors are benefitting from yields well in excess of 14% within a two-mile radius of the three universities in Liverpool, and 12% yields near the University of Salford. These yields are more than double what investors can secure in the south.
He continues: “London is losing its charm for many investors, with its unaffordable property and low yields. Historically, investors have benefited from strong capital growth in the City, but even this is slowing.
“With Salford and Liverpool prices rising faster than any other cities, there’s never been a better time to buy. With low interest buy-to-let mortgages and a weak pound, UK and overseas investors can secure a low cost, high-yielding property. For example, investors can acquire a high quality, three-bed HMO [House in Multiple Occupation], which will house students, from £120,000 upwards. The return on investment is very attractive too, with 13% (8% cash rental and 5% capital growth).”

Black Friday Deals 2016

Black Friday is the time for manic shoppers hitting the high street and fighting for the latest discount deal. Everyone loves a good discount whether they actually need the item or not, which is why it sends shoppers in the UK in a frenzy. Black Friday always used to be a one-day event which was inherited through our American friends, however the rules have been re-written and many retailers are getting ahead of the game from as early as 11 days before!

Retailers such as Amazon, Argos and Tesco already began theirs at the beginning of this week (or before) but with new and better deals due to hit on the actual day.

In a hope to help you bag yourself a bargain, we have listed below the best places to head to, (online or in store):

Apple have also announced they are joining in on the Black Friday madness this year, but are keeping it quiet with what will be on offer. Instead they are teasing shoppers with advertisements stating ‘Friday cannot come quick enough’ and offering extended opening hours for its’ stores. I’m sure they will not disappoint…

 

Mega discounts are applied to retail stores online and in store including:

 

Huge discounts and free delivery up until Friday

 

A Massive 20% of EVERYTHING

 

Currys is always renowned for its not to miss deals on Black Friday, so expect laptops, tablets and home appliances to be reduced to bargain prices.

Boots launched its Black Friday last Saturday and has reduced items from curlers, to electric toothbrushes.

Tesco is now opening its doors to shoppers on Friday at 5am.

 

 

So grab yourself a bargain!

Settling In To Your New Student Pad

Most students are now settled or settling into their new student properties for the next academic year, to begin their student experience or to continue their courses into their second, third or even fourth year.
Some thrive being in their new properties whereas others struggle being away from the home comforts, to help with this we have put together a few tips to help with the transition:
1 – Make it homely – It might be a new temporary stay property, but it doesn’t mean you have to treat it as a temporary residence. Buy new bedding, a cute bedside lamp maybe even a small rug for the side of the bed. Anything that makes it more homely and comfortable during your stay. And definitely put up pictures of your family, friends and pets.
2 – Cleaning – No one likes to live in a dump. It might be boring but keeping on top of your room and ensuring you have plenty of cleaning products available will definitely help in the long run and mean you can invite visitors and feel proud of your property.
3 – Get to know your city – It is always good to know where the best bars are (or the cheapest), where you can nip if you need milk or if your family come to visit you know exactly where to take them. It is also handy to know exactly where your campus building is and maybe try out different routes and find out whether it is best to get a bus or simply walk.
4 – Test Your Cooking Skills – Don’t fall into the standard student rule in relying on takeaways. Buy some cook books, do research on recipes online, eating healthy will make you feel better in yourself. There are so many easy meals out there or get creative and have your own ‘Come Dine with Me’ competition with housemates.
5 – Create a wall of inspiration – You can include anything you want on this wall if it makes you feel positive. This could be pictures, sticky notes with reminders, plans for the future, props you’ve picked up on a night out/or tickets to an upcoming gig. Anything at all to brighten the room and pick up your mood if you’re having a stressful deadline day. But check with your landlord before using blu tac on walls.
6 – Keep a medicine box – You will realise the necessity of this sooner than you think. Fresher flu does exist and having a box of essentials to hand when you wake up feeling less than ok. This stops any dreadful walks to the shop when all you want to do is stay in bed.
Everyone has different comforts to help settling in to new places, but just remember to enjoy it!
