Come fly with me at Humberside Airport

One of the main bugbears of travelling abroad is the initial journey to the terminal. But with local Humberside Airport offering an extensive range of cost-effective flights to an array of countries, you can save all that time, energy and money for your holiday.

Destinations include Iceland, the Netherlands, Jersey, Italy, Majorca and Bulgaria.

Further information about flights and vacation packages can be discovered on the Humberside Airport website..

 

Linking Lincolnshire via the Humber Bridge

The Humber Bridge has become an iconic landmark for both the north and east of England.

Carefully constructed in 1981, the single-span suspension bridge is one of the largest of its type on the entire planet. It connects Yorkshire to Lincolnshire and permits motorists to arrive in the south much quicker than if they had to drive around the Humber Estuary.

Crossing it also allows you to take in the beautiful views of Hull’s skyline.

 

A commuter city for Leeds, York and Sheffield

Finally, Hull is in very close proximity to the northern hotspots of Leeds, York and Sheffield. They are all under 70 miles away and take just over one hour to drive to.

Meanwhile, there are plenty of rail connections offered by a number of operators, including Northern Rail and TransPennine Express.

What the Public Realm Works in Hull Mean for Property Investors

 

Over the past year, £26 million has been invested in Hull City Centre. Whilst there are still a couple of finishing touches left to complete, the majority of the work has now been carried out, revealing a truly beautiful and modernised Hull.

Thanks to Hull UK City of Culture 2017, the renovations have enhanced the character, heritage and essence of the city. It is hoped that this extensive makeover will lead to a better first impression of Hull, as well as generate new business, increase the number of jobs available, and attract more people to live in the city.

 

Paragon Square welcomes visitors with open arms

The brand new Paragon Square sits just outside of the train station and greets you as you enter the city by rail. You will then stumble upon Jameson Street, an important shopping area in the city.

The street has been refurbished to allow for wider pedestrian access and more places to sit, plus they’ve planted new trees to add some greenery to the area. It’s a great spot for outdoors eating and high street shopping.

 

Queen Victoria Square is the heart of the city

The large square is flanked by beautiful historic buildings, primarily Hull City Hall, the Maritime Museum and the Ferens Art Gallery. This has made it a key gathering spot for many of the City of Culture festivities, including Made in Hull and LGBT50.

Queen Victoria has retained her seat atop the famous public loos, but a new water feature has been added nearby for both adults and children to frolic in during hot summer days.

It is also a stunning place to graduate, which could be a deciding factor for prospective students considering applying to the University of Hull.

 

Whitefriargate is the entrance to Hull’s Old Town

This popular shopping thoroughfare also received a facelift. New paving stones have been laid to expand and improve the pedestrian area, along with extra wall lanterns and seating for added access.

Already home to a number of independent and high street stores, the street will also become a venue for small markets and cultural events. Meanwhile, Zebedee’s Yard, which often hosts events, is connected to Whitefriargate by two alleyways.

 

Trinity Square reflects on Hull’s religious heritage

Holy Trinity Church has just been awarded the new title of Hull Minster. To celebrate, the adjacent square has been completely resurfaced with gorgeous mirror pools. These interesting water installations add a modern twist to a traditional area of the city, showing off the already picturesque church in an entirely new way.

Trinity Square has already played host to some popular City of Culture events, including the first Hull Street Food Nights, which brought 10,000 foodies into the city.

 

The Fruit Market acts as the cultural core

Towards the waterfront of Hull Marina, you will also find the freshly restored Fruit Market. New pavement has been laid, with original cobbles and tram tracks cleaned and spruced up to keep in with the area’s industrial character.

Humber Street acts as the nucleus of the quirky stretch, with a whole range of brand new restaurants, galleries and artisanal proprietors. A number of popular local festivals and markets are held there, including Humber Street Sesh, which entertained over 30,000 punters in August.

Why Investing in Houses in 2017 Makes Absolute Sense

 

If you’re considering investing in your future, purchasing a house with Hull Investment Properties could very well be the choice for you. Here are a just a few reasons for why you should invest your money in a house in Hull in 2017.

 

There’s going to be more of us

The national population is growing, which means that more houses will be needed. This certainly works in the property owner’s favour as it means that house prices are set to rise, as well as the cost of rent.

The Migration Observatory has projected that the population in the UK will grow to 72-77 million by 2039. This means that in the next ten years the population is expected to reach 70 million

Invest now rather than five years down the line and you’ll be thanking yourself in years to come.

 

We’re going to live longer

Moreover, according to Public Health England, we’re all going to be living a lot longer than those before us.

This means that not only will the housing market grow, but you reap the rewards of your investment well into your 80s and 90s.

 

There are more people settling in Hull each year

More specifically, it has also been predicted that Hull’s population will increase by 2% during the next decade. This is due largely to an increase in migrant workers in the area.

On top of all this, the student population in Hull has always remained a steady and reliable tenant source for those who rent out their properties. Each year, a new batch of young people searches for their perfect home. Many of our houses are ideally located on Newland Avenue and Princes Avenue, which are within easy walking distance of the university and a hotspot for students.

 

Houses are as safe as… well, houses

That famous phrase had to come from somewhere. Purchasing property has long been one of the safest ways you can invest your hard earned cash. This is due to a number of reasons, the two most significant being:

1) A house is a practical purchase. It lasts a long time and can be repaired and upgraded by you, the owner, as much or as little as you like. By choosing to make these improvements, you control the way you maximise your profit. You can’t necessarily do this with other types of investments.

2) A house will also make cash from day one. Unlike a classic car or Rolex collection, you don’t have to wait for years to be able to start making your money back. People will always need a roof over their heads, and houses never go out of fashion.

 

Why choosing us makes so much sense

With Hull Investment Properties, you can be sure that your house is well maintained and structurally sound from the moment you sign for it. Most of our premises have had new roofs and double glazing installed, so you won’t have to worry about upgrading or maintaining the basic features that many tenants will expect.

You also don’t need to worry about tenant issues. We attend to any problems or maintenance work on your behalf within 24 hours.
