Now is the time to buy in thriving Southampton, with investment opportunities delivering attractive yields, capital growth and healthy profit margins. Southampton was recently named third in an index of the UK’s best cities to live and work[1] and its popularity is set to continue to grow with ongoing investment into the region.

The waterside city is known as a high-tech digital destination and has seen a recent influx of start-up businesses to the region. Equally, the city is seen as one of the top places to live in thanks to employment opportunities and business growth. One such example is The University of Southampton’s start-up incubator and City Council’s new creative business base called “Network” is due to open at the start of 2019, which is projected to attract more businesses to the area.

Richard Fowler, Director at Knights Porter, said: “Southampton provides excellent short-term investment opportunities, delivering impressive returns for our customers. We have seen an increase in interest for the new build property market and expect this to continue over the next 12-month period. The potential profit to be made can be seen through an increase in the sales value of properties over the years, largely thanks to more people moving to Southampton.”

Marcus Evans, Sales & Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Regeneration commented: “Southampton is fast becoming a thriving hub of entrepreneurs and young professionals. The location and viable rental market offer strong investor opportunities for buyers. Now is the perfect time to buy, and we’ve seen an increased amount of interest from buyers looking to invest or move to our Centenary Quay development.”

Set on the banks of the River Itchen, Centenary Quay is Crest Nicholson’s premium waterside destination boasting plentiful investment opportunities across its collection of one, two- and three-bedroom apartments. The final Azera apartments are on offer from £249,000 up to £323,000, with Help to Buy, Buy to Let and stamp duty incentives on selected homes.
