Liverpool: Investment Hotspot for 2019

Liverpool has been undergoing extensive regeneration since 2004, when Grosvenor Estates pledged £1 billion to redevelop its centre into a shopping, residential and leisure complex. By 2008, when the first parts of the Liverpool One project were completed, the city had already earned well-deserved recognition as a European Capital of Culture. Today it is one of the most popular shopping destinations in the UK.

The average price of a property in Liverpool city centre last year was £135,061. That is six per cent higher than the previous year, yet still well below its 2008 high – right before the financial crisis – when the average was £175,423. That paints an attractive picture for any would-be investor.

Liverpool is right in the thick of a property boom. The city is enjoying one of the most prosperous and advantageous periods in its history after a decade of heavy investment, interest and subsequent growth. Since the unqualified success of its European Capital of Culture year in 2008, Liverpool has become a vital and intriguing cog of the Northern Powerhouse machine.
