As such, data from the Office of National Statistics shows that average household incomes, employment levels and rates of higher education are substantially higher than the national average.

The strength of the local economy has underpinned the robust performance of the local property market, with apartment prices having increased by 3.1% and 19.2% over the past 1 and 5 years, respectively (Source: Zoopla, May 2020). Rental demand is also strong, and this apartment block in particular has a stable track record of letting well to professionals. The gross rental yield of 6.6% (at a purchase price of £1,200,000) is significantly above market levels, which are typically in the region of 4.0%-4.5% (Source: based on data from Home.co.uk and Zoopla as at May 2020). This underscores the attractive pricing of the apartment block and the desirability of the apartments to its tenants.
