The make-up of the Private Rented Sector (PRS) has undergone a fundamental change within the last few years due to successive Government housing proposals. Reports indicate that almost 50% of housing benefit recipients are now living in PRS. The Private Rental Sector has outperformed both commercial property and equities with average returns of 10.5% over the last decade. The six main UK cities with gross yields over 6% in order are: Leicester (6.4%) Sheffield (6.3 %) Coventry (6.3%) Stoke-on-Trent (6.1%) Reading (6%) Birmingham (6%) Demand is high in the private rented sector in the current economic climate, due to first-time buyers priced out of the market, immigrants and increasing student numbers all looking for rented housing in the private sector. With Coventry home to two major universities and a reenergised technical industry, the time to invest into property has never been better.
