Summary:A strong commitment from the local government to make this city a Eurpoean city makes it a good bet for capital growth.


The sixth largest city in the UK by population and by my estimation it is a mini-London.  This city has it all – superb road and train links, large ports for export and import to and from the rest of the world and two international airports near the city centre.  This is why so many businesses have located to Liverpool and hence led to the surge of the city’s economy.  And this trend will only continue with the council committed to making Liverpool the most business-friendly city in Europe by 2006.

Liverpool is one of six short listed to be the European Capital of Culture for 2008.  If Liverpool gets it there will be a major regeneration of the area and it will really put Liverpool on the map amongst our European partners.  This can only mean that property prices will increase due to the inward investment.  Announcement of the winner will be March 2003 – I reckon Liverpool will be one of the favourites.

The university is in the heart of the city and has over 23,000 students.  This keeps the city centre very busy on every night during term time.  The students love to live in the city centre and the university cannot meet the students accommodation demands.  There are many professional landlords exclusively dealing with the student market but there is still room for others landlords as demand is so high.
