Yield investors should go North

It may be grim up North but by eck the investment yields are good.

Have a look at this recent article by Moneyweek.  The author is generally sceptical about investing in residential property.  However he has unearthed properties across the north and midlands with double digit yields.  The downside is that many of these properties require upgrading and considerable capital investment on the part of the landlord.  But for those investors who are prepared to put in the work, the income is there.

 Sounds like the good old days to me.  You don't get owt for nowt in this game!

There really are cheap properties up north and not only via auctions. I picked up my newish one bed flat for £60k last year in Manchester, 10% yield. No work needed, just furniture et voila!

True though some great properties to be had up ere
