Why should property investors choose Stoke-on-Trent

1. Stoke-on-Trent is the number one buy-to-let hotspot

Research from investment marketplace, Property Partner, found that Stoke-on-Trent is number one when it comes to annual rental yield from buy-to-let properties. The research took into account house prices, local salaries and rental returns. And the results were conclusive in favour of the Potteries. Rental yields of almost 6% are possible!

2. Stoke is one of the top fifteen places in the UK to start a business

This is according to a Fasthosts survey that was done in the UK in 2021. Fasthosts based it's findings on several key factors. These include business launch and closure rate, five year business survival rate, the cost of office space ft2, and productivity rate. Stoke's very desirable location has deemed it the "home of the billion pound start-up. Bet 365, JCB, Amazon, Jaguar Land Rover and Vodafone are examples of major success stories.

3. Stoke boasts two thriving universities

Keele and Staffordshire are both major universities in terms of size and popularity. The 2022 University League Tables from the Complete University Guide rank both of our higher education establishments in the top 100. More importantly, both have highly respectable scores in terms of student satisfaction. Consider this, if you were to invest in property in the areas that are hugely popular with Keele and Staffs students, you are likely to be very successful.

4. Stoke is witnessing an influx of investment

Stoke was named in the Sunday Times best up-and-coming areas for investment. An ongoing investment from big hitters is creating a huge number of jobs across Staffordshire:

An ambitious plan, initially devised and set in motion back in 2011, is starting to take shape. Major new developments that were outlined in the Master Plan are beginning to transform the horizon across the Potteries. New housing is being erected around the City. Perhaps the most exciting development will be happening at Stoke train station and the surrounding area. This will be the subject of major transformation in the coming years.
