Leeds Lettings

Hunters Leeds Lettings

Leeds city centre is busy and buoyant with new businesses and attractions opening their doors every day. Leeds is a magnet for young working professionals looking for jobs, shopping and nightlife. With the rental demand currently outweighing supply; finding a home is becoming increasingly difficult. This demand is making it the perfect place for landlords to invest with there being little to no void periods.

The attention that the Northern Powerhouse has brought to the region and the fast train links to London means that Leeds is quickly becoming one of the north's most prominent cities. It is for this reason that rental prices have dramatically increased over the last year. The market in Leeds city centre continues to boom and whilst the changes in stamp duty that came into effect in April have put the pressure on landlords to accelerate their plans to buy before the tax is implemented, this has not deterred them from seeing the opportunity with regards to the rental yields.

Are you an Investor Landlord? As a national estate agency brand we are in the enviable position of having access to a large database of properties from our growing network of over 170 branches throughout the country. This gives us a prime advantage and enables us to hand pick properties that offer good yields and strong capital growth for keen investors in prime locations when rental demand is high.

As you can see from the table below the dramatic increase in rental rates within Leeds city centre are very impressive, making it the perfect location to invest.
