Portico Launches in Manchester and Liverpool

January 30, 2019

Building on the success of our London business, we are pleased to announce we will be launching in Liverpool and Manchester from the 5th February 2019, next week!

Having successfully run Portico Host in London for two years we have decided now it is the time to expand our offering to Manchester and Liverpool. We will also be offering landlords our specialist lettings packages.

Portico gives landlords the opportunity to utilise Airbnb management services, and short and long-term lettings solutions under one roof. Our expansion into the north west is driven by our diversification within the industry and our partnership with Airbnb.

Both Manchester and Liverpool have active property markets and with clear opportunities for further growth. We have launched Portico Host in Manchester in collaboration with coffee retailer, Pot Kettle Black in Barton Arcade, and in Liverpool, the Portico Host team will be based remotely, to bring property services to the heart of the community.

Come and meet the team!

5th February – Pot Kettle Black, Barton Arcade, Manchester – 11am-6pm

7th February – 92 Degrees Coffee, 49 Jamaica Street – 11am-6pm

Please call 0207 099 4000 or email to book a time to meet the team and get an understanding of our services!!!

Why not try out instant valuation tool to get a rental value of your property in Manchester or Liverpool.

The North West has been chosen as our first venture outside of London because of the regions buoyant rental market, and the size of the opportunity available. Liverpool and Manchester are two of the best places to invest in property in the UK, in terms of the return long term investors can achieve. In certain parts of Liverpool, landlords can expect to achieve a rental yield of circa 9-10%, whilst in Manchester, landlords can expect to achieve a yield of 6-9%. Landlords who use short term lettings can expect to achieve a greater uplift in the achievable yield, when compared to longer term rentals. Even with a 70% occupancy rate, Portico Host can generate an even better return, potentially taking the yield into double digits.

Portico Host has seen great success with our tiered management package system, in-house property management services, and partnership with trusted brand Airbnb. Through the co-host programme, Airbnb will share with Portico best practices, provide additional support, and enable further technological integration. New Business Director Fiona Patterson has watched Portico Host grow from an idea to a thriving business. Patterson said: “It’s no secret that the lettings industry is evolving, and at Portico, we intend to change with it. After the success of Portico Host in London and our collaboration with Airbnb, it seemed only natural to bring our award-winning service to the best place for landlords to invest in the UK. Liverpool and Manchester share a vibrant Airbnb and letting market, enabling Portico landlords to achieve better yields for their properties.“
