Things are starting to kick off in the Premier League, with Newcastle looking set to become one of the richest clubs in the world and confirmation that games will recommence on the 17th June.
There is still some way to go before Liverpool clinch the title so instead, the latest research by peer to peer lending platform Sourced Capital has looked at which club makes the most lucrative investment based on the available rental yield surrounding each stadium.
While they may not pack the most clout on the pitch, the figures show that Sheffield United are top of the league table when it comes to Premier League rental yields.
Property surrounding Bramall Lane provides an average yield of 6.67%, just clinching the top spot ahead of Manchester City with a yield of 6.58%.
Newcastle could be the one to watch though. With a big money deal on the way, the area is sure to see prices increase which could see yields diminish, however, currently they rank third of all Premier League clubs with an average yield of 6.28% making them a potentially great investment at present.
Liverpool are currently on course to claim the title on the pitch and off the pitch property around Anfield commands a respectable average yield of 5.71%, although they do place in joint fourth with local rivals Everton.
At the bottom of the table, Bournemouth are set for property investment relegation with yields surrounding the Vitality in poor form at 2.7%. Chelsea join them at just 3%, with Brighton just taking the last relegation spot with a yield of 3.65% ahead of Arsenal; who scrape to safety at 3.7%.
Managing director of Sourced Capital, Stephen Moss, commented:
“The match day buzz of living near a stadium can be a huge bonus point for many but it can also deter others from buying or renting, so when looking at property investment around a major sports stadium of any kind, it’s vital that you gauge demand before diving in head first.
Of course, the easiest way is via a more hands off investment method such as a peer to peer platform like Sourced Capital, where the homework has already been done for you. As the research shows, not all Premier League clubs are boasting great records when it comes to investing in property nearby so location, as always, is key when considering such a move.”
