Good News For Property Investors In Peterborough

There has been a buzz surrounding Peterborough for some time, following announcements of various development plans taking shape in and around the city. Peterborough, which was previously best known for having good transport links to bigger and brighter nearby cities, is undergoing a huge period of regeneration with a recent announcement made by Peterborough City Council declaring that UK and overseas investors are backing an impressive £130million regeneration plan.

The redevelopment plan will see several key areas of the city centre set to be rejuvenated which will undoubtedly deliver new jobs, homes and outlooks for people living in Peterborough and generate interest from outsiders hoping to take advantage of our 45 minute commute to central London.

Another boost for the cities image was being crowned the fastest growing city in the UK, followed closely by Milton Keynes, which has helped to enhance the confidence of local, national and overseas investors in the cities potential to deliver.

Based on figures collected last year, and as reported by the BBC, the annual change in house prices in Peterborough is up 10.8% compared to national average of 6.84%. When this growth is coupled with house prices which are below the national average and a strong demand for rental properties, Peterborough offers profitable buy to let solutions.

With all of these exciting plans and projects in the pipeline and to take advantage of a city on the up, I believe that now is the time to invest in Peterborough!
