LendInvest Buy-to-Let Index Reveals Declines in Manchester and Liverpool House Prices PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 24 April 2015

LendInvest, the world's largest peer-to-peer platform for property, launched an index on the UK Buy-To-Let (BTL) property market.

The LendInvest Buy-To-Let Index is published quarterly, and uses recent asking price sales and data to provide a snapshot of the UK property market, and then overlays the current rental prices to obtain an accurate yield for UK BTL property.

The LendInvest Buy-to-Let Index Q1 2015 published some interesting results on the market, using over 1 million price points, covering the whole of the UK:

- 4 of the 10 highest rental yielding postcodes are to be found in Birmingham, followed close behind by 3 of the 10 in Glasgow with Ipswich and Liverpool also making it into the top 10.

- The average rental yield for a 1 bed property across the UK is 5.9% compared to 5.3% for a 2 bed, 4.7% for a 3 bed and 4.0% for a 4 bed.

- According to Price Paid data from Land Registry capital gains are 2.6% per year across the UK from the year 2010 to 2014.

- Areas in Manchester and Liverpool have actually experienced declines in house prices year on year.

- Postcodes WC1, WC2 and N5 in London have the highest returns on investment yielding up to 25% year on year.

- The highest house price increase has been seen in Hackney over the period 1995-2014 experiencing up to an 8 fold increase, closely followed by Kensington and Chelsea (7 fold increase).

The LendInvest Buy-To-Let Index is freely accessible on LendInvest's website, and provides various interactive graphs and charts, providing a powerful new tool for BTL investors.

The data for the LendInvest Buy-To-Let Index uses data from Zoopla, one of the largest and most comprehensive property data providers and historical data from Land Registry, making the LendInvest Buy-to-Let Index the most extensive publicly available assessment of the UK BTL property market.
