Most that York has to offer is easily accessible, with York Train Station a 14-minute cycle, University of York a 22-minute walk and York Minster a 26-minute walk.

York has established itself as a hub for high-value, high-growth industries. These include:

  • Railway engineering
  • Digital tech
  • Bioscience
  • Financial and professional services
  • Environmental Technologies

Investors will benefit from a high calibre of tenants, with the City Council noting “just under half of York’s residents are qualified to a degree level or higher, meaning that the city has the highest skills levels of any city in the North of England”. With more young professionals taking up higher-paid jobs, the average disposable income will increase – this is great news for property investors who will see a higher demand for quality rental properties.

A total of 16,000 people are employed in the biotechnology sectors and 3,000 are employed in the digital, creative and IT sectors.

There are also 22,000 students at the University of York and a further 6,500 students at York St John University, so investors can rest assured knowing rental demand is high.
