Why Nottingham?


One of the main reasons an area does well for investors is population growth.

Furthermore, Nottingham is known for its younger population, especially students from both The University of Nottingham and the highly ranked Nottingham Trent University, of which are much more likely to rent rather than buy. Here we can see why the private rented sector of Nottingham represents a whopping 26% of homes in the city. So, if you’re looking for an investment property in the area, it is clear to see the Nottingham property market is buzzing with potential.
