Invest Your Pension in Property

In April 2015, new pension reforms introduced by the Government mean that retirees will have the freedom to spend their pension in one go if they choose to. We foresee that many will take this as an opportunity to invest in property, but the question is whether or not it’s a good idea. (more…)

Can We Ask You a Question?

Here’s a blunt but relevant question for you: Isn’t it time you started making more money?

You may be employed, run your own business, freelance for multiple clients, or currently be unemployed or retired with a little saved up. Whatever your situation, with a little investment you can create an ongoing revenue stream that’s simple to set up and even easier to maintain. (more…)

Start the New Year with Savvy Investment

It’s the time of year that would seem totally bizarre to aliens if they were watching us from the skies. Humans seem to go a little peculiar for a month, putting trees in their living rooms and twinkly lights in every window. All of a sudden everyone’s drinking sherry and port like it’s going out of fashion, and you practically can’t move for cracker barrels and cheeseboards. The fitness regime is taken over by TV movies, Quality Street and frequent trips to the fridge, and our dress sense takes one for the team as stylish ensembles make way for garish festive jumpers. During all of this madness, the battle cries of Slade, The Pogues and Mariah Carey echo through holly-decked halls, and it seems perfectly acceptable to dance at the most inopportune moments.


At Hull Investment Properties, we absolutely love the festive season. With decorations in the city centre and our own homes, we also get to see and hear how our clients decide to celebrate. We’ve seen all sorts over the years, from traditional and tasteful embellishments that complement their surroundings, to pink fibre optic trees, life-size Nativity scenes, and animatronic creatures that would make Stephen Spielberg green with envy (despite them singing Jingle Bells).

We’re not here to give you tips on decorating your home at Christmas, as coming up with your own style is half the fun. What we are here to do is make investing in Hull properties easier than ever, and there’s no better time than now. While many people go through the January blues or make outrageous resolutions that they can’t possibly keep, we get to work with smart and forward-thinking individuals who see taking on a new property as a great way to begin a fresh year.

Hull Investment Properties Are Here For You!

As a customer, you’re very important to us. We can offer a customised service to suit all requirements by getting to know you, but first off you need to know more about us. Below are some facts about Hull Investment Properties and why we stand out in Hull’s private accommodation market.

We’re local

Some property portfolios are owned by people who may be new to the area and don’t know it very well, or even based remotely and find out about the city through a Google search. Hull Investment Properties are different. We don’t just do business in Hull; we shop, relax and live here too.

We’re a family business

Hull Investment Properties is a father and son company run by Chris and Tony Hodgson. We work to traditional values, including honesty, integrity and fairness, whilst meeting the needs of today’s investors. Our work is very important to our family name, so we do everything possible to make transactions as smooth and efficient as possible.

We’re experienced

Between us we’ve seen every dip and rise in the property market over the last forty years. In this time, interest rates have rocketed to 15%, plummeted to 0.5%, and usually levelled off somewhere in-between. The recent recession was nothing new to us, having been through similar situations in the 1980s and 90s, and we’ve even seen an overabundance of houses, when it was difficult to find enough people to fill them. No matter what happens to the economy, property market or social trends, we’re ready for it.

We’re knowledgeable

The law plays a huge part in property investment, which is why we embrace changes to legislation and regulations, obtain all of the necessary certificates (gas, electricity, EPC etc.), and remain long-standing members of the Humber Landlords Association, meeting once a month to discuss housing issues.

We’re accredited

Hull Investment Properties are also part of Hull City Council’s accredited landlord scheme. Members agree to work to a code of management and meet various housing standards. This gives reassurance to current and prospective tenants, as we aim to improve the quality, safety and running of accommodation in the private sector.

We’re effective

We hate a leaky roof or broken window as much as you do, which is why we nip problems in the bud and fix them before they grow into bigger problems. Our maintenance team is second to none and works to the highest quality as and when required, following our philosophy of being proactive instead of reactive.

We’re dedicated

At Hull Investment Properties, our objective is for tenants to stay with us for as long as possible, rather than the standard six months. Ongoing relationships are extremely advantageous for both sides: whilst you benefit from the peace of mind that you’re always in safe hands, we minimise unnecessary costs and invest the savings in maintenance and improvements.

We’re here for you

Chris and Tony are always ready to take your calls and reply to your emails. Get in touch with us for a friendly chat on 01482 342155 or at

Investing in the UK City of Culture

Over the years, Hull has had a bit of a rough time financially, a bad rap media-wise, and few ambassadors outside of its municipal boundaries. Heavy bombing during the Second World War was followed a couple of decades later by the rise of stark 1960s architecture, looming ominously over the myriad of ornate, eye-catching and uniquely juxtaposed structures that had defied the Luftwaffe. This was combined with a rapidly dwindling fishing trade and a sharp rise in unemployment, all met with apathy by a country that had its own problems and very little link economically, culturally or even physically with a secluded North East Coast Town.

Investing in the HU5 Area

Investing in a Hull property is a savvy move, especially now that the city’s economy, cultural sectors and national focus are steadily on the rise. This is partly thanks to City of Culture status being awarded for 2017, combined with a rapidly expanding workforce in the sustainable power industry throughout the Humber region. The result is a greatly increased influx of people into Hull, some short-term and many for the foreseeable future, all of whom need a place to call home. (more…)

Ten Reasons Why Hull is the Best City for Property Investment

After decades of going unnoticed, Hull has recently seen a sharp increase in attention both nationally and internationally, from London media agencies to foreign investors. On the road to City of Culture 2017, Hull will transform its image and grow in confidence as the British public recognise it as a desirable place in which to live and work, as well as invest in its considerably low-cost housing market. With this in mind, here are 10 reasons why Hull is the best city for property investment.


Buying to let is becoming the new nest egg for many UK residents

It has been reported recently that the total value of property owned by the UK’s property investors is approaching the value of the entire UK’s pension savings.

At £1.25 trillion – £1,250billion – the value of the homes, flats and houses owned by the growing number of great Britain’s landlords is approaching £1.6 trillion total amassed in workers’ pension schemes.

Traditional pension saving schemes are proving complex and unpopular recently with many finding that their pension pots simply haven’t delivered, and many are now turning to buying-to-let schemes spurred on by cheap mortgages making renting property a reality.

Help to buy schemes and other Government’s pension changes, are enabling savers to spend their pensions and savings freely and are expected to add to the boom.

While the trend is causing concern among some Government policymakers surrounding the current overheating of the housing market in the south of England and London, landlords in Hull and Humberside who plan strategically can benefit from a still relatively calm housing market.
