A guide to Liverpool

Liverpool is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city with an eclectic abundance of nightlife, parks, gardens, museums and art galleries. It is made up of small historic villages crammed with listed buildings and a booming city centre with new building projects and a revitalised waterside and cruise terminal.

Liverpool city centre

While the historical origins of Liverpool city date back to the early 1200s – Liuerpul (c 1190 – meaning pool with muddy water) – it will always be synonymous with the swinging 60s and the sound of The Beatles with their timeless songs that put Liverpool on ‘the map’. But after a tough time in the 70s and 80s, when the city suffered from economic instability and unemployment, it emerged on the other side, reinvigorated to become a cultural centre and one of the UK’s most dynamic urban centres.

Famous landmarks include the Albert Dock, Liverpool Cathedral (the fifth largest church building in the world) and the Royal Liver Building (considered to be Britain’s first skyscraper).

Liverpool property

According to local estate and letting agents, city property prices have surged throughout 2015, with median selling prices for flats continuing to rise by an average of 32 per cent year-on-year. House prices continue to grow by seven per cent annually as demand outstrips supply.

However, if you’re looking to buy, property in Liverpool still remains a competitive choice because prices are lower than the national average, making it an affordable option for many first-time buyers compared with many of the UK’s other cities.

Liverpool has a huge range of housing. It was Europe’s first city to develop municipal housing as far back as 1869, when St Martin’s Cottages — a tenement block of 124 flats — were built in the Vauxhall region of north Liverpool, to house the city’s poorest people. This tenement rubbed shoulders with grand detached redbrick villas and the earlier Georgian terraces within the city itself.

Outlying areas such as Woolton and Hale Village on the south side of the city contain early examples of stone built terraced cottages which now sit side by side with 1960s and 1970s social housing estates and newer, upmarket ‘executive’ detached brick built housing.

Within Liverpool city centre, there is a thriving refurbishment market. Grand listed facades of warehouses are combined with new build, mixed use apartments. There is also a huge demand for purpose built student accommodation. In other words, there is something for everyone.

What are the average sale prices in Liverpool?

Depending on where you decide to buy, average prices vary considerably from the city centre to the more competitively priced northern areas and the affluent south end of the city.

  • One bedroom flat in Liverpool - £42,000 upwards to £230,000
  • Two bedroom flat in Liverpool - £80,000 upwards to £500,000
  • Two bedroom house in Liverpool - £45,000 to £750,000
  • Three bedroom house in Liverpool - £50,000 to over £1,000,000

Jenny Friar, Property Administrator at Marshall estate agents, said: “This year we have seen a huge uplift in demand from investors who are interested in buy-to-let properties for the purpose of student accommodation. These properties often attract a great deal of interest because it is easy to sustain 43 plus weeks of occupancy every year. However, there is also still a great interest from many young professionals who continue to seek affordable homes close to the city centre.”

Bryan Crouch, Director of LPC Lettings, added: “With public transport being so frequent and all amenities on the doorstep, living in Wavertree or Kensington is ideal for both students and young professionals, so interest for rentals remains high. Student properties are already renting well for the next academic year and are achieving prices from £325 to £415 pcm.”

No profile of Merseyside would be complete without mentioning its two world famous football clubs – Everton FC and Liverpool FC – which are among the best supported and most decorated in the game. One of the most famous horse races in the world, the Grand National, is also hosted near Liverpool at Aintree Racecourse, on the fringe of the city.

Where are the best places for shopping in Liverpool?

“The Liverpool One shopping centre is definitely one of the best places to shop in the city,” said Ms Friar (Marshall). It has a fantastic range of popular brands and department stores, so there is plenty available for all ages. However, if the high street shops in Liverpool don’t take your fancy, it’s worth visiting the smaller retailers and independent boutique style shops in the buzzing Cavern Walks centre.

The popular local markets held on Saturdays and Sundays in Liverpool are also great for food shopping — it’s worth visiting Great Homer Street near Everton and Monument Square Farmers’ Market, which opens twice a month and sells food from regional producers.

Liverpool has more than 2,500 parks and open spaces, which make it one of the greenest cities in the UK. It has more than 10 Grade I and Grade II listed parks and its Victorian Parks are very popular with visitors. The best spots to visit are Sefton Park, Calderstones Park, Woolton Woods and Freshfield in Formby.
