For comparison, Liverpool property prices are almost £100,000 cheaper than the UK average.

Liverpool has experienced considerable regeneration in the last few decades, with ample more in the pipeline.
The current expansion plans amount to over £14 billion of investment. Most significantly, the regeneration of Liverpool Waters – a £5.5 billion investment and revolutionising this historic city’s skyline. Construction, which began in 2018, aims to transform the derelict buildings along with the city’s popular waterfront sector. The project aims to create a multi-use vicinity with a mix of commercial, residential, and leisure amenities. It will be one of the most remarkable new building projects in the UK, combining exceptional architecture and design with unique creativity.
Liverpool Waters will see the creation of five distinct neighbourhoods, adding to the existing 9,000 spectacular waterfront apartments overlooking the River Mersey. Since the £5.5 billion project has begun, it has already been attracting lots of attention as it gathers momentum and starts taking shape. This could be the perfect time to tap into Liverpool’s buy to let market whilst prices remain low.
The award-winning £5.5 billion regeneration of Liverpool Waters is one of the most noteworthy regeneration projects in the UK to date. Two million square metres of Liverpool’s waterside will be transformed into five, new distinct neighbourhoods. The area will become a space to live, work and play and it will be a radical vision for the city.
The Anfield Project will transform the community that sits in the surrounding areas of Anfield Stadium, Liverpool’s world-famous football club. The scheme will create 1,000 new homes and expand the stadium to a capacity of 54,000. One of Liverpool’s most famous and beloved neighbourhoods will be revitalised, breathing life into the private and public sectors.
