Diverse and friendly, Bolton has quickly become an area in high demand. Bolton University has attracted students from all over the globe with its modern facilities and high-quality teaching. This makes the town a perfect area for investors searching for buy to let property. Anywhere popular with students means you should be able to gain a good income through renting out your property per room. It is not only the education that draws students to Bolton. With an excellent selection of leisure activities and a variety of restaurants to enjoy, weekends are never boring. Increased property demand has led to higher property prices. However, capitalising in the area while it is still growing and thriving could bring great investment opportunities.
Crosby, located in North Liverpool is known as one of the most sought-after places to live in the city. It was placed 4th in “The Best Places to Live in Britain” by The Sunday Times in 2016. Only a short commute to the city centre, Crosby is ideal for city workers who want to come home to peace and serenity. Most famous for the beautiful Crosby Beach, you can enjoy calming walks while appreciating the spectacular life-sized, cast iron sculptures by Antony Gormley. Dipping your toes in the sea after a long day at work is definitely a bonus. A perfect family friendly area; good schools and friendly locals make this location a prime area for property investment.
Best known as home of the Grand National, Aintree has become a hot spot for people looking for property. Horse racing creates an amazing buzz within the area, and once a year large numbers of race goers descend on Aintree. However, for the most part, the village is both pretty and peaceful within a close commute to Liverpool city centre. There are two railway stations, two local shopping areas and a handful of pubs. It is a wonderful family friendly location and many choose to retire to the area. By investing in property in such a desirable village, you can expect good rental demand, and a popular sale if you later decide to sell.
