Not only is Leeds a booming, bustling city, but it has some beautiful outdoor spaces to enjoy. Being outside has numerous health benefits and easy access to outside space is now one of the top requirements from tenants. With a wealth of parks and outdoor space to choose from in the city, Leeds investments will always be near to somewhere people can get close to nature.

What is property investment?
Put simply, property investment is property purchased with the intention of generating financial returns for its buyer. These returns could be in the form of rental income through buy-to-let properties, house price growth through the future sale of the property or both. Property investments can be owned by individuals or organisations and can be short, long or medium term.
