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.


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

Hull’s Young People are Part of the UK’s Digital Future

Digital technology and mechatronics are changing the world every single day, whether that be how big businesses operate, the way individuals work, or even the way in which we spend our leisure time. That’s why educational centres like the brand new Ron Dearing University Technical College are so vital to our economy and our young people. Ron Dearing UTC will open its new building in Hull city centre in September 2017, providing students with amazing opportunities and bespoke ways to learn. It will make the city a hub of technical and vocational education, as well as a source for specially trained staff that digital companies and engineering employers are currently crying out for.

Investment in Education Means Investment in Property

One of the best reasons to invest in Hull is the presence of a vibrant, historic university and its plethora of new students that descend on the city each year, all in need of a place to stay. Although university-owned accommodation exists, there is still a huge renting market to those 16,000 students, 2,500 employees and 1,000 academic staff that work on campus every day. Soon to be entering its 90th year, we thought we’d take a look at why the University of Hull brings huge benefits to the city. (more…)
