Best buy-to-let hotspots in the UK & tenanted investments you can buy in those areas


If you’re looking to play the rental property market, you’ll want to know where the best buy-to-let hotspots are, right? Lucky for you, we’ve got a list of the top 10 most-lucrative regions to invest in.

Online property portal, Zoopla, revealed where the best buy-to-let hotspots are across the UK in their latest report.

According to Zoopla, Northern England is THE place to buy property if you’re looking to turbocharge your returns.

The king of the North, or the whole of the UK for that matter, is located in Greater Manchester.



Rochdale made it to the top of the list, where the average price of a two-bedroom home sits shy of £100,000 and boasts an average monthly rent of £738. This translates to a juicy gross annual rental yield of 9%.

While Rochdale topped the poll for the best buy-to-let returns, Blackpool wasn’t far behind offering yields of 8.6%.

Wigan was the third North West region to make it into the list, placing fourth with a gross yield of 7.09%.

Bringing up the rear of Zoopla’s top ten buy-to-let destinations is Bradford where investors can experience a healthy 6.4% gross yield.

Annabel Dixon, a spokesperson for Zoopla, said: “Despite the challenges facing the sector, yields – particularly in North England and Scotland – match up well against other forms of investment.”

So there you have it, the North is where you going to get the best return on investment on your rental property – especially in the North West.
