A pause in activity post-EU referendum was short-lived, with sustained growth on all fronts since then. Current lettings activity remains robust across the three central postal districts including the L3 district of Quay Central, with activity expected to pick up further now that the government has confirmed it is to bring 3,000 new employees to its new ‘super hub’ a short walk from Quay Central.

Liverpool is a hugely popular tourism destination, and much demand for property comes from visitors willing to pay a substantial premium for short-term lets on platforms such as Airbnb and HolidayRentals.com[/av_textblock] [/av_one_full][/av_section]
