Premier League kicks off today but who should you support in terms of yields?

Top-flight football returns this weekend, with Liverpool preparing for tonight’s Premier League opener versus Norwich City, but what team should landlords support this season when it comes to rental yields?

Bunk has compiled a Premier Rental Yield League Table, with this year’s finishing spots based on the teams with the highest rental yields in the property market surrounding their stadiums.

The letting platform, which connects landlords and tenants without the need for letting agents, looked at the average rental yield in the outcodes (first part of a postcode) where each Premier League stadium is located and drew up a table, based on their findings.

The research found that newly promoted Aston Villa and their home ground in B6, Birmingham, is home to the highest yields, with the monthly rental price of £760 and the average house price in the outcode is £114,111, generating yields of 6.98%.

Sheffield United narrowly ranked in second place with yields at 6.97%.

Newcastle United and Everton round out the rental yield Champions League spots in third and fourth place.

Liverpool rank next with yields of 6.54%.

Manchester City are next with their M11 outcode, then SO14 in Southampton, WV1 in Wolverhampton and NR1 in Norwich. Manchester United’s M16 stomping ground in Old Trafford rounds out the top half of the table.

Arsenal’s home of N7 in Holloway is next, followed by Leicester’s LE2 outcode and BN1, Brighton. Selhurst’s SE25 outcode – where Crystal Palace play their home matches – follows, ahead of WD18 in Watford and another London area: N17, Tottenham.

Burnley’s BB10 outcode sits just above the relegation zone, where SW6 in Chelsea sees a less promising average rental yield of 3.61%.

West Ham’s move to the London Stadium proves disappointing in the yield table, with E20 in Stratford seeing an average yield of 3.31%.

In last place is Bournemouth, whose BH7 outcode sees just 2.91% yield on an average monthly rental cost of £871 and house prices of £358,966.

Tom Woollard, Co-founder of Bunk, commented: “All eyes will be on this weekend’s Premier League fixtures as the competition gets underway, but if it came down to rental yields, the table would look very different now to how the actual table will look next May, as our research shows!

“Landlords who are looking to invest in the buy-to-let market could do worse than searching for properties in the midlands and further north, as one can see from the top half of our table.

“It’s also worth noting that every London area with a Premier League connection sits in the bottom half of the table and West Ham and Chelsea, in particular, would face ‘relegation’. That’s not to say that these London declines result from the presence of Premier League stadia by any means, but landlords may want to steer clear of the capital when there are properties further north that provide a better return on their investments.”
