About Leeds

Leeds sits at the heart of Yorkshire and is one of the UK’s premier buy-to-let hotspots. The city is one of the driving forces behind the Northern Powerhouse – the government’s scheme to rebalance the national economy and promote the Northern economy.

Leeds is home to huge advanced manufacturing and financial centres which are as good as anything else across the country. In addition, it is one of the main centres of the new digital sectors which will define our future. Many tech companies call Leeds home and the city is recognised as a centre of innovation and creativity which is a match for London and Manchester.

The Leeds rental market is booming and buy-to-let investors are taking notice. The Leeds city region has a population of more than 3 million and the largest body of working age people in the UK outside of London. Young professionals are flocking to the city, both as part of the general trend of young people moving North and also because Leeds has set itself apart as a place where hard work in modern industries does not go unrewarded.

Housing in the city centre is at a premium – until this year there had been no new residential construction for five years – and local estate agents report than new properties on the market are snapped up almost instantly. This is the ideal time to look at property investment in Leeds – a reasonably priced and high-yielding city.
