Liverpool real estate

  • 18 October at 19:51 - by chris999 - 5921 views


I have always wanted to own an apartment in Liverpool, and I have had an email regarding a new development at the Central Docks hotspot.  They are offering them for £137,393 with a 6.4%net income. Has anyone got any experience with this?

Very much so, I bought back in 2010 when they were first offering the cheaper apartments for sale around the Liver Building.  I was one of the first. You are buying off plan which has advantages and disadvantages. If you get in quick you can get a real bargain, but you must make sure you get one with a view!  I nearly made the mistake of buying one looking inside rather than outside. Also, off plan means that they have no experience of how they are going to work in reality.

thank you.  And do you get a yield if you don't mind me asking?

yes I do, the developers and the rental company all in one, so they have rented it out and I have enjoyed a huge percentage yield compared to the price I paid.  You have a huge market because of course you have the uni there as well as business. As far as I know, mine is rented to a company who use it for their employees when they are there in business.
