Pack your umbrella, this week we’re taking you on a tour of “The North”.
You won’t find either “The North” or the “Northern Powerhouse” on a map, because it’s actually a collection of different regions – all with their own investment case, and things to look out for. We introduce you to and compare:
- Leeds and West Yorkshire
- The North East
And importantly, if you’ve had your head turned by somewhere far from home, we wrap it all up with some tips for staying safe while making that investment happen.

News this week
“Are longer mortgages the answer to high property prices?”, asks the BBC.
“No, they’re a cause of high property prices”, we reply – and it has interesting implications from an investor’s point of view.
