Property Investment in the North East

We are confident that North East is one of the best places to invest in property in the UK.  The combintation of low property prices, high rental yields & good probability of rising property prices in the future mean that the value you get for your money when buying property in the North East cannot be beaten.

The low prices in the North East allow investors to obtain a high yielding property for less than the deposit on a low yielding property elsewhere.

The rental market in the North East constantly offers some of the highest rental returns in the UK (Rental yields are typicall 8% plus) but on top of that many families rent their homes so there is a good supply of tenants in most places and the demand for high quality rental property is very high.  

Thiese factors together make buying an investment property in the North East an attractive investment for buy to let landlords looking for a good rental income whilst owning a property which is likely to increase in value.
