Where is the best place in the UK to invest in a buy-to-let property?

Aldermore’s Buy to Let City Tracker, analysing 50 cities across the UK to understand the top places for landlords to invest in, has found Manchester, closely followed by Cambridge, to be the best.

The Tracker, which has been expanded from 25 cities in 2019 to 50 cities, was determined by analysing and assessing five key indicators that impact desirability; average total rent, the best short-term returns through yield, long-term return through house price growth over the past decade, the lowest number of vacancies as a proportion of total housing stock, and percentage of the city population in the rental market.

In this episode of Informed Choice Radio, I speak to Jon Cooper, head of mortgage distribution at Aldermore.

With a high level of uncertainty for landlords since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, the private rented sector has never been more important.

Renters have changing needs, which is creating investment opportunities for landlords.

Here's my conversation with Jon Cooper in episode 534 of Informed Choice Radio.
