Smart Tips – North East Property Market

In the property world, many people will have heard about the North South divide and how the further south you go, the harder it is to be able to afford to get on the property ladder.

So why not look further north, and more specifically the North East? Over recent months we have seen returns on investment of between 20% and 30% on buy to let properties including student accommodation. With four major universities, one of the largest car manufacturing plants in Europe, Hadrian’s Wall, some of the finest countryside in the UK and two International airports, why would you invest anywhere else?

So this months top tip is to look at Middlesbrough, a town that is working towards a £700m investment which will completely transform the ‘Infant Hercules’ that was born from the Eston Hills. The Town is home to the University of Teesside with over 20,000 students and nearly 2,400 members of staff and the Council have recently announced plans to bring a direct train to London Kings Cross within the next 18 months, so now I the time to invest!
