Liverpool is one of the premier cities in the North West, known today for its extensive infrastructure, transport networks and stunning regeneration projects. With a regional economy of £20bn, Liverpool is a major contributor to the national economy and one of the UK’s most popular tourist destinations. On top of that, the city’s extreme popularity as a venue for businesses and a home for young professionals makes it the sort of buy-to-let hotspot that any property investor should be interested in.
Liverpool is going through a huge regeneration at the moment – stand out projects include the Liverpool ONE shopping complex, the redevelopment of Liverpool Lime Street Station and the re-opening and expansion of the docks. The city has a big presence in the financial, advanced manufacturing, bioengineering and digital and communication sectors, all of which have an international impact. All the workers looking to work in Liverpool’s state of the art businesses, not to mention the huge student population, need high quality housing, something which the city currently has a shortage of.
