Hot Spots for 2020

Last week on The Property Podcast, Rob & Rob gave you their predictions for 2020. And this week they’re back for their annual rundown of the top UK property investment hotspots to help you decide where to invest next.

It’s an episode that many of you look forward to at the beginning of each year. So now the wait is over – here’s a run-down of which locations made The Robs’ 2020 hotspot list, along with places should be on your radar to watch…


  1. Liverpool
  2. Manchester
  3. Nottingham/Leeds


  1. Crewe
  2. Doncaster
  3. Greater Manchester

Up and coming:

  1. Sheffield
  2. … you’ll have to listen to find out the rest.

So, there you have it, Rob & Robs property hotspots for 2020. Some of them may come as a surprise, so make sure you hit that play button to find out why The Robs reckon these should be on your radar.


Our news story this week is actually a positive one! (New Year, new Rob & Rob?) and the headline reads ‘Buy-to-let investment sentiment remains strong as 2020 kicks off’. According to a recent survey, 75% of people were positive about buy-to-let – rising to 83% if you include millennials.

Apparently a lot of young people have a positive attitude towards property investment, whilst those who have been in the game for a while are a bit more sceptical due to recent changes over the past few years. But, nevertheless, no matter whether you’re about to start or you started 10 years ago, property will still come out on top as the best investment model.


For Hub Extra this week, we thought that this podcast episode on our 2020 hotspots just wasn’t enough. So, we’ve also done a new YouTube video where Rob & Rob go into more detail on these locations, allowing you to get even more of an insight on what made these locations capture their attention.

So head on over to our YouTube channel to check the video out, and don’t forget to hit the subscribe button and turn on those post notifications.
