Why Invest in Leeds?

High Property Price Growth

According to Zoopla, Leeds' house prices have increased 22.48% over the past five years and are forecast to increase by 28.2% in the Yorkshire and the Humber region in the 5-years to 2025 according to Savills.

Leeds property prices remain affordable in comparison to major cities nearby including York and Harrogate. The increase in demand for people wanting to live in city centres is fuelling the growth foreasts for Leeds property prices and rental values, which are expected to increase by 3.2% per annum.

Strong Rental Growth

Over the past five years, data shows that property prices across Leeds have increased by an average of 21%.

Some areas have performed better than others with LS7 (covering Chapel Allerton and Chapeltown), LS10 (covering Hunslet and Middleton), and LS11 (covering Beeston and Holbeck) seeing the largest increases at 24%.

Accoring to JLL (2020) Rental Growth is expected to increase 14.2% over the next 4 years.
The economies of the North West and Yorkshire & the Humber will be two of the strongest performing economies in the UK over the next five years with the region’s key cities being the main drivers of this outperformance.

Leeds Regeneration

The Southbank Project regeneration of the south of the River Aire area will be the biggest change of the city in more than a hundred years, doubling the size of Leeds city centre and transforming the South Bank into a distinctive global destination for investment, living, learning, creativity and leisure.

The Southbank Project is one of the largest city centre regeneration initiatives in Europe and will provide over 35,000 jobs and over 8,000 homes. The area is already home to a range of UK headquarters including ASDA, Bloom Media, Flashtalking and Elmwood, and regional headquarters including KPMG, Ernst & Young and DWF.

High Speed Rail 2 (HS2) once completed, will directly connect London, Birmingham, the East Midlands, Leeds and Manchester. HS2 will create a world class transport gateway for Leeds and bring new economic opportunities. Journey times from Leeds to London will be reduced to just 88 minutes. HS3 will reduce journey times to Manchester by 40%.

Leeds' population is estimated to be 780,000 making it the fourth largest metropolitan area in the UK.

The Leeds economy is estimated to be worth £21.3 billion per annum and accounts for nearly a third of the Leeds City Region's total economic output.

The city’s economy grew by 34% during the last decade, in line with Leeds City Region as a whole. Over the next ten years, the economy is forecast to grow by 21%, with financial and business services set to generate more than half of GVA growth over that period.​ Growth sectors of the Leeds economy include healthcare and medical technologies, financial and business services, manufacturing, digital and creative, retail, housing and construction, social enterprise and the third sector.

Student Population

Leeds boasts the UK's fourth-largest student population with over 70,000 students enrolled in the five universities across the city, including the University of Leeds, Leeds Beckett University, Leeds Trinity University, Leeds Metropolitan University and Leeds Arts University.

City Centre

There is a constant demand from renters for city-centre locations in Manchester, which is one of the many reasons it has fast become an excellent place for property investors. You can find some of Manchester's biggest regeneration schemes here, such as NOMA and Spinningfields. The population in the city centre is largely made up of young professional and students, making it a great hub for landlords wanting a prime tenant demographic. Zoopla (June 2020) states the current average price paid for a property in Manchester City Centre is £211,791 and in the last five years prices have increased by circa £45,000 (25.5%)


Located a stones throw away from Manchester City Centre (4km) is an area with many ongoing and upcoming regeneration projects, Trafford. This includes one of the city's most interesting and valuable regeneration projects, the Intu Trafford Centre. This is the second latest retail park in the UK and attracts circa 35 million visitors a year. Furthermore, the Trafford area attracts a large number of young professionals which makes it another popular investment spot within Manchester. There are more regeneration plans in the pipeline, set to boost housing, education, leisure and retails facilities in the area. According to Rightmove, the average price for a flat is £196,925 and prices are up 8% on the previous year.


This investment has lead to huge growth with Salford's population forecast to grow by 13.7% by 2036, nearly twice the Greater Manchester average of 7% (Manchester City Council, 2017) and is also forecast to see the highest level of economic growth in Greater Manchester with an increase in GVA of 52.9% by 2036.

This has drawn investors to capitalise on the demand for high-quality properties such as Regent Plaza with young, highly-skilled professionals flocking to the area.
