Houses for sale in Yorkshire and the Humber offer 'investment opportunities'

Houses for sale in Yorkshire and the Humber offer 'investment opportunities'

Property investors looking to expand their portfolio may want to look beyond houses for sale in London, it has been argued.

Houses and flats in the capital are often impractical for investors due to high prices, according to IPING Global.

There are opportunities to be found in "every region", claims the investment firm, but they may be harder to find than they were.

Peter Mindenhall, researcher at IPINGlobal, listed indicators for positive investment opportunities as "substantial investment in the form of regeneration, seeing an influx of capital at an institutional level, or significant commercial investment from the tourism industry".

These aspects reflect the potential for long-term growth and the desirability of an area, he added.

Research from LSL Property Services indicates that investors may be looking to add houses for sale in Yorkshire and the Humber to their portfolios.

The region saw a 14 per cent rise in property transactions from March to May 2011, while overall England and Wales experienced an increase of seven per cent.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800619412-ADNFCR
