Liverpool has outperformed the rest of the UK in terms of both house price growth and short-term rental yields, according to Acentus Real Estate.

The Hometrack UK Cities House Price Index has showed Liverpool, along with Edinburgh, saw property price increases of 5.8% over the past year which is more than any other UK city.

Portico Host, meanwhile, has reported that landlords in some parts of Liverpool are achieving short-term letting yields of 27.2%.

Simon Clarke, director, Acentus Real Estate, said: “Next to location, a development’s amenities are one of the most important factors to consider before making an investment.

“If the building has features that make it stand out from the crowd, that’s going to increase its appeal to renters, helping to improve yields and avoid void periods.”
