Property investment firm names best performing UK postcodes and regions

Track Capital has crunched the numbers for 1,350 postcode districts across the nation and says Nottingham currently offers the best return on investment for buy-to-let landlords.

Its December data snapshot shows that two postcodes within the Midlands city offered just over an 11% gross yield – NG7 and NG1 – followed by the BD1 postcode in Bradford (10.6%), M14 in Manchester (10.10%), NE6 in Newcastle upon Tyne (9.8%), YO10 in York (9.8%), SA1 in Swansea (9.2%), CF37 in Cardiff (9.2%), SO17 in Southampton (9.2%) and YO31 also in York (9.10%).

This hotspot Top 10 compares favourably with the average gross yield per property in the UK, which currently stands at 3.63%, according to the firm.

Nick Hyland, founder of Track Capital, said: “Student-dense cities such as Manchester, Leeds and Nottingham feature highly and are responsible for much of the high yields in those cities. London can still achieve above-average yields, especially a little further out in the commuter belt, such as 5.2% in Dartford, but it also has the lowest-performing areas in the country.”

But the research also suggests where not to invest. The worst places for yield in the UK are GU10 in Guildford (1.9%), HP9 in Hemel Hempstead (2%), IG4 in Ilford (2%), WD7 in Watford (2.1%), CM4 in Chelmsford (2.2%), B93 in Birmingham (2.2%), AL4 in St Albans (2.2%), KT13 in Kingston (2.3%), W1 in central London (2.3%) and also SL9 in Slough (2.4%).
