The top 5 reasons to purchase a managed buy to let property

For those looking to earn a healthy income from property rentals, figures suggest that heading north may offer the best opportunities for return on investments. London landlords may be able to charge some of the highest rents, but with house prices equally high the profit margin is far tighter than that of their northern counterparts.

New research conducted by eMoov has unveiled a shift in property markets, highlighting a new pecking order that places the North in nine of the ten top spots. This has been attributed to an increase in rental prices, coupled with cheaper mortgages and a booming housing market that looks set to strengthen.

The North has evidently outperformed the South as well as Wales, with Sheffield in particular proving to be fruitful. Voted the best place in the UK for buy-to-let, Sheffield is currently offering investors the best returns in the whole of the UK, based on research from more than 2.6000 postcodes.

With an average property cost in Sheffield coming in at just under £70,000 and an average monthly rent of £645, you can see why landlords are heading north in order to reap the financial benefits. To put this into perspective, the national average gross gains is 4,2pc compared to 11pc in Sheffield.
