Leeds offers low entry priced property, good rental yields for landlords and is undergoing impressive regeneration projects which aim to double the footprint of the City Centre.
We've decided to take a look at Leeds, this Northern city has been in the press recently for all the right reasons. The City recorded almost a 6% rise in property prices, which was the second-highest area for property price growth in the UK and with CIA Landlord having named it the most profitable City to become a landlord in the North of England it certainly seems a good proposition for property investors. The City provides both good yields and low entry prices, it is also undergoing some regeneration to make it a more green, pedestrian-friendly area. With a £25 million redevelopment of the Corn Exchange in the pipeline to help enhance the City. Not only this, but there is the £500 million regeneration project of the Southbank area which aims to double the size of Leeds City Centre. The City Centre already has a lot to offer with a multitude of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. It is also home to both the Trinity and Victoria shopping centres which offer excellent facilities. The City has a lot to offer young professionals having been rated as one of the top ten areas outside of London for graduate jobs with factors such as leisure, entertainment and quality of life playing a part in this. If you're looking to escape the City to the Countryside for a change of scenery you're also only a 48 min drive to the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
