Located on the River Mersey in the North West of England, Liverpool is world famous as a shipping port and a capital of culture. The city has a young, growing population and is an incredibly attractive business destination, particularly in the finance, manufacturing, digital and creative sectors.
The city has been transformed in the past decade by significant public and private investment. The waterfront in particular is stunning. Unfortunately there is a real shortage of high quality rental accommodation available, meaning that apartments are being let for a premium. This is good news for investors and makes Liverpool a national buy to let property hotspot.
