Where to buy a buy-to-let property in Leicestershire

Many existing and aspiring buy-to-let landlords look to Leicester city centre when sourcing a suitable property to let out to tenants. While there’s no doubt that this is a sensible strategy that can provide a good ROI, a recent study by TotallyMoney has identified Loughborough as the top rental hotspot in Leicestershire.

The smart money is on Loughborough

With its excellent transport links and recreational facilities, rental properties in Loughborough are always in high demand. Not only that, the LE11 postcode showed an average rental yield of 5%, outstripping the 3% usually found in Leicestershire.

As a leading estate agent in Loughborough, Andrew Granger & Co usually have a good selection of properties for sale in Loughborough that would be suitable as buy-to-let investments. If you would like to discuss any of the properties we currently have for sale, please call our Loughborough office on 01509 235 534.

Other great places to invest in Leicestershire

The following Leicestershire postcodes reported a 4% rental yield, outperforming Leicestershire’s other postcodes:

  • LE2 – The small town of Oadby, three miles south east of Leicester city centre is popular with students and families alike.
  • LE3 – The Glenfield area to the north west of Leicester is known for its hospitals and as the base of Leicestershire County Council. This pleasant village is popular with families and commuters thanks to its proximity to the M1.
  • LE4 – The postcode encompassing Thurmaston and Birstall in the Charnwood borough of Leicestershire is also a great place to look for a buy-to-let property.
