    Oh i do like a good news story on a Monday morning. We started investing in Blackburn and sorrounding areas 3yrs ago, returns were amazing, not quite so good now but still a lot better than quoted in that article. All across Lancashire* there a little micro hotspot markets - these exist everywhere, its just spotting them that takes the time.

    *Corrected spelling mistake! Smile

    These seem very poor yields to me. I would never go below 7%, and that's on pretty safe, conservative investments. People with bigger cojones than me (i.e. willing to find themselves on the set of Shameless from time to time) get 10%+. 4-5% is potential negative cashflow territory by the time you've totted up interest, insurance, repairs, voids, tenancy setup costs etc and/or if you prefer to appoint an agent.

    Yield is very heavily geared - say your total costs average out at 4.5%, a prop at 7% is worth 5x one at 5% interms of cashflow.

    Plus, I don't think it's useful to generalise about a town or city - most will have a huge spread of yield.

    That rental figure for YO1 could be somewhat misleading

    The only properties available in YO1 at prices anywhere near or above the quoted average of £1876 per month are fully serviced apartments and the very rare larger houses (4 bed+)

    Even fully furnished 3 beds properties are well under £1500 pcm and there are plenty of 1 beds at < £700 pcm
