I Recently Visited the Courtyard & What Our Clients Say about the Courtyard

I was recently in Liverpool to visit The Courtyard site, to take a good look at the area, and do comparables of what else is available.

I had a tour of the site and the construction of the Courtyard is well advanced and it will complete on schedule.

I have been to Liverpool over 10 times in the last 2.5 years.

One of our clients just bought a 2 bedroom apartment facing the famous and picturesque Liverpool waterfront. He is thrilled to have a prestigious piece of the waterfront in buzzing and beautiful Liverpool to reside in.

He had a good look at comparable properties in the city centre; he said they were higher priced and they were resales, and thus already a bit 'tired and worn' needing some work. So to move into a 'brand, spanking new apartment' at the Courtyard he said was a 'no brainer.'

Another client was looking for a good 'buy to let' investment and the Courtyard 'ticked all the boxes' for him, including:

• Excellent and sustainable returns at 6% net return for 5 years

• Direct views of the Docks from his apartment making it attractive to tenants and good for resale

• City centre location

• Fully managed, hands off investment

Another buyer went for a viewing yesterday (7th April) and he straight away reserved a 2 bedroom for himself.

Liverpool has all the advantages of London without many of the disadvantages

Liverpool has culture, restaurants, bars, shopping, very friendly and genuine people, and a lively atmosphere.

A key advantage of Liverpool is that it considerably cheaper to live in than London with lower house prices and one can get everywhere in Liverpool very quickly – 10 to 30 minutes, not 1 to 2 hours!

I always feel much less stressed in Liverpool than in London too.

The Location

The Courtyard is less than a mile off Liverpool's vibrant waterfront where there's plenty happening.

Being close to the historic Albert Dock, there are plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. Indeed, Albert Dock is one of the UK's most popular tourist destinations. Millions of visitors come here yearly to visit the numerous hot spots like the Tate Liverpool or Merseyside Maritime Museum.

The Opportunity

The Courtyard is a smart property development to invest in either as a resident or as a pure investment. Liverpool is one of the strongest rental markets outside of London due to a severe shortage of new-build stock for at least the past five years, providing investors with the opportunity to purchase at the start of a market cycle.

As of January 2013, Liverpool City Council estimated that more than 50,000 households rent privately in the city and that the rates of private rental accommodations have grown above the national average.

The number of private rental sector (PRS) households in Liverpool, Leeds, Manchester, Bristol and Birmingham has risen by 77% in 10 years, such that they account for 23% of all households.

By 2020 as much as a third of the population could be private tenants in the UK.

'The Core Strategy', which was published by Liverpool City Council in 2012 revealed that 41,000 new homes need to be built in the next 15 years to meet demand – 70% of which need to be in or near the city centre.
