The UK’s top 10 property investment holiday hotspots

Where is the best UK holiday destination for property investors?

New research has been carried out by comparison site, finder.com/uk, to find out the answer by analysing the yields for holiday destinations based on property sales and rent return figures.  

The study found that Liverpool offers the best value for property investment, after the maritime city ranked recorded the highest investment yield of 6.62%.

Second on the list is Glasgow, with the Isle of Wight, Jersey, and Keswick completing the top five list of most desirable holiday destinations for property investors.

The analysis found that the most popular UK holiday destination, London, drops to 7th place with regards to return on investment.

Similarly, despite being the second most popular destination for holidaymakers, Edinburgh drops six places when investment value is factored in, while Bath remains at the bottom of both lists.

Jon Ostler, CEO of finder UK, said: “When investing in property, it can be easy to assume that the most popular locations – in this case, London and Edinburgh – will offer the highest returns. However, our analysis reveals that by taking some time to compare locations and shop around, investing in slightly less-obvious locations may actually work out better for you financially in the long run.

“With the ranking based on destinations voted most popular by travellers, it’s likely that you’ll secure tenants in these hotspots in little time, regardless of which location you choose.

“If you are looking to invest, make sure you take some time to inspect and investigate. Determining overall value is beneficial, however, if the property requires renovation for example, the money you could save will go towards those fixes that tenants will expect to be completed. Photos can often be misleading, so it’s important that you see the property in the flesh first.”
