Sheffield named as investment hotspot for 2022

It’s fantastic to see Sheffield named as one of the property investment hotspots of 2022 in a recent article in Property Investor Today.

The article by Advantage Investment reports: “Sheffield is one of the most valued cities in the UK, with an average property worth of £169,464 making it a hotspot for investors. Not only is it a valuable city for a variety of reasons, but there is also a fast-rising housing demand. By 2039, the population of 575,400 is expected to rise by 80,000, resulting in high demand for new homes.

“Sheffield is home to prestigious universities and a sizable student population, which contributes to the city’s rising population as a substantial number of students stay in the city after graduation.”

There is increasing number of investors looking in Sheffield for their next buy-to-let, as the yields are more favourable than other northern UK cities. Many London-based investors are also looking to the north to generate great rental returns.

Redbrik property consultant for Sheffield lettings, Jennifer Hitchman, said: “I’m not surprised to see Sheffield listed as a UK investment hotspot as it’s such an incredible location for investors.

“Rents have been increasing at an unprecedented rate in Sheffield in the last 18 months, as a result of high tenant demand and a lack of good quality supply. This offers a fantastic opportunity for aspiring landlords or those looking to expand their portfolios.

“We have registered a very large number of applicants looking for properties in the city who are relocating from London due to flexible working. They are citing Sheffield as either somewhere they have roots or family connections or because of its good commuting links to London. It’s sometimes as simple as they want good proximity to the Peak District!”

Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, and Scotland were other areas named in the report as growing investment hotspots for 2022.
