Property Investment Liverpool

"I bought my first-ever BRRR deal with Dom in October 2023. I found him via his distressed assets website and felt drawn to the concept of truly BMV properties. Dom was so helpful throughout the process. He viewed the property for me, secured the price pre-auction, and helped me throughout the conveyancing and insurance process. I bought the property for 75k and just got it revalued at 115k after 6 months, a 50%+ return. I've not done any work to the property, and the existing tenant is long-term and has looked after the property well.

I highly recommend Dom's services. As a London-based investor, it's so useful to have that local expertise in Liverpool and someone on the ground to view, make offers, and have pre-existing relationships with the auction houses. Once I refinance and build up some capital, I'll definitely be back!" K.P.

Property Investment Liverpool

A property investment in Liverpool should be sourced below market value and have a high net yield relative to comparable properties. The best property investments are generally those which are distressed, which means they are either repossessed by a bank, or there is another reason the owner must sell, and in some cases very quickly to raise cash.

Why Buy to Let in Liverpool?

Why invest in Liverpool property?

There are several reasons why investing in Liverpool property can be a good option. Here are some key points:

1. Strong Rental Market: Liverpool has a strong rental market due to its large student population from various universities and educational institutions. This makes it an attractive location for buy-to-let investments, as there is a consistent demand for rental properties.

2. Regeneration and Development: Liverpool has experienced significant regeneration and development in recent years, with ongoing projects like the Liverpool Waters and the Knowledge Quarter driving economic growth and creating new opportunities for Liverpool property investment. This development and investment will lead to capital growth and increased rents in the medium to long term.

3. Affordable Property Prices: Compared to other major UK cities like London, Birmingham and Manchester, Liverpool offers relatively affordable property prices, making it an attractive option to buy to let investors looking for value for money. Lower property prices can result in higher rental yields and the potential for capital appreciation over time.

4. Strong Economic Growth: Liverpool's economy has been steadily growing in recent years, with a diverse range of industries, including maritime, manufacturing, creative arts, and tourism. The city has also seen significant investment in infrastructure, including the Port of Liverpool, which is one of the busiest ports in the UK. A strong economy contributes to a stable property market and creates opportunities for buy to let property investors.

5. International Tourist Destination: Liverpool is a popular tourist destination, known for its rich cultural heritage, music scene, and waterfront attractions, such as the waterfront and iconic Albert Dock. This creates demand for short-term rentals, serviced apartments, and other tourist accommodation, making it a potential investment opportunity for those interested in the hospitality sector.

6. Transportation Links: Liverpool has excellent transportation links, including the Liverpool Lime Street railway station, Liverpool John Lennon Airport, and the Merseyrail network, providing connectivity within the city and to other parts of the UK. Good transportation links can enhance the accessibility and desirability of a location for property investment.

7. Diversification: Investing in Liverpool property can provide diversification to a property investment portfolio, spreading risk across different locations and markets. This can be beneficial for risk management and potentially yield better returns.

It's important to note that property investment carries risks and it's crucial to conduct thorough research, seek professional advice, and assess your personal financial situation before making any investment decision.

What is property development?

Property development can vary depending on the specific project and location, but generally involves the following steps:

1. Project selection: The first step in property development is identifying a suitable project. This may involve researching the local property market, evaluating potential properties based on planning regulations, and considering factors such as location, accessibility, and availability of utilities.

2. Feasibility study: Once a project has been identified, developers will conduct a feasibility study to determine if it is financially viable. This may involve evaluating the cost of land acquisition, construction, and marketing, as well as estimating the potential return on investment.

3. Planning and design: If the project is deemed feasible, the next step is to develop a detailed plan and design for the property. This may involve working with architects, engineers, and other professionals to develop ideas, site plans, and other design documents.

4. Financing: Property development requires significant upfront capital, so developers will need to secure financing from investors, banks, or other sources. This may involve preparing a detailed business plan and financial projections to present to potential lenders or investors.

5. Construction: With financing in place, developers will begin construction on the property. This may involve hiring contractors, managing the construction process, and ensuring that the project is completed on time and within budget.

6. Marketing and sales: Once the property is complete, developers will need to market it to potential buyers or tenants. This may involve working with agents, advertising the property online and in print, and hosting open houses or other events to attract buyers.

7. Property management: If the property is let rather than sold, developers may also need to manage the property after it is completed. This may involve hiring property managers, maintaining the property, and ensuring that tenants are satisfied and paying rent on time.

Overall, property development can be a complex and time-consuming process, requiring a range of skills and expertise. However, with careful planning, financing, and execution, it can also be a highly rewarding and profitable business.
