Buy To Let Best Yields Identified by Investment Platform

A property investment platform has analysed rental yields to see the best returning areas for buy to let investors.

Sourced Franchise analysed UK house prices, rent values, and yields in June 2022 and June 2023 to see how a difficult economic environment has impacted buy-to-let returns. 

The data shows that the current average yield in the UK is 5.2 per cent, marking a 0.4 per cent increase since this time last year.


The strongest yields, which indicate the best places to invest right now, are currently available in Scotland (5.9 per cent) while other regional hotspots include Northern Ireland (5.7 per cent), the North West (5.5) Yorkshire & Humber (4.9) and London (4.7 per cent).

Scotland also leads the way in terms of annual yield increases, rising by 0.64 per cent. 

With 0.49 per cent growth, London is also performing well, as are Wales (0.35 per cent), the West Midlands (0.34) North West (0.34) and Yorkshire & Humber (also 0.34 per cent).

The South East is the only region to have recorded negative numbers, with the current yield of 4.0 per cent marking an annual drop of 0.02 per cent.

Sourced Franchise director Chris Kirkwood comments: “Economic turmoil can present great opportunities for investors who are willing to take calculated risks, and the UK’s current environment is the perfect example. 

“Yes, the economy is struggling and rising mortgage rates are causing widespread concern on the housing market, but with house prices likely to fall further before they climb again, and rent values climbing at pace, buy-to-let landlords who can afford to take on current mortgage deals would be wise to pounce when the right properties come to market in the right locations.”

    No place is safe and No place is Rewarding in the UK


    Spot on! U.K. is not the safest investment at present or until 2025, not st least till after the next General elections.
    The Caribbean, South America, BRIC nations, Africa and Middle East are much higher investment ROI options.
    If Labour Communist/Socialist political party wins the elections-all 2nd homes, investment and empty properties will become the property of Council’s/state to provide free housing to illegals.
    U.K. BTL, 2nd homes and investors beware-Labour, Lib Dem’s, Greens et all are bad news for PRS entrepreneurs, and Conservatives are just as bad for self employed with IR35 regulations. Britain First may be the only hope to revive U.K.’s economy, and investments for the future generations.
    Best wishes to all.
