This week we’re finding out if there’s any substance behind the buzzword that is the “Northern Powerhouse”.
We talk transport links, government projects, multi-billion pound regeneration schemes…and most importantly, what it all means for property investors.
Resource of the week
Archilogic is a service that takes a floorplan and turns it into a 3D walkthrough. We’ve not taken it for a spin, but it looks like it could be a handy tool to show off your development projects or even just rental properties in a more compelling way.
News this week

Investments being marketed overseas creates challenges, but it’s yet another indicator that the growth could well be in the north over the coming decade.
