In an uncertain world the stability of the UK buy-to-let housing market is a welcome relief for investors; strong historic growth is allied with solid foundations for the future to create a winning combination.
Preston is the third largest city in the North West, and the largest in its county of Lancashire, following the award of city status in 2003. This is a confident, welcoming city which is friendly to business and regularly performs well in PricewaterhouseCooper’s Good Growth for Cities Index which analyses jobs, transport, average incomes and work-life balance among other things.
Preston is located on the West Coast Mainline and is only 40 minutes from Manchester and 50 minutes from Liverpool by direct train, as well as also having direct links to London and Glasgow. In addition, the city sits at the heart of a motorway network which makes it an incredibly attractive place for businesses looking for logistical access to the rest of the UK.
