Martin & Co highlight hidden hotspots in UK market

Martin & Co has launched its latest Market Intelligence Report for the UK, revealing an average boost of 7.8% to house prices in areas surrounding major road improvements.

As part of its national campaign which looks at key trends across the industry, the report provides an in-depth analysis of the buy-to-let and private rental sector, supporting landlords in identifying investment locations across the country with the highest growth potential.

The reports, compiled in partnership with Dataloft, are also available for the London and Scotland markets.

Martin & Co has identified a number of key investment hotspots linked to significant transport programmes - both current and planned.

Recently completed projects have seen house prices increase by almost a quarter in some locations, with improvements to J19 of the M1 in Leicestershire resulting in a rise of 22.5pc and the Bedale bypass in North Yorkshire seeing property prices grow by 16.2pc. The high profile Crossrail project, due to operate from 2018, is expected to boost house prices along its route by up to 25pc, and there are a large number of similar multi-million pound projects in the pipeline over the next few years.

The highlight from the London issue found an average boost of 15.7pc to house prices in suburbs surrounding investment infrastructure, with a 10.8pc increase in Scotland.

Landlords will benefit greatly from the reports as they expose the relationship between how the UK property market is behaving and ongoing infrastructure projects. With this data, you can find some hidden gems in the UK's available properties for sale, with increasing rents and yields to make the most from an investment.

The reports are free to download for all landlords from the Ask Martin website. Access them here and get your market insight report today!
