How do SPL stats compare to the rental market?


Scotland might be staying in the UK but not everything is as per norm in the country. On Sunday, Hamilton Academicals managed to secure a 1-0 victory over Celtic F.C in the Scottish Premier League. This pushed Celtic to 6th position in the league with 9 games played, while Hamilton are sitting pretty on top of the table. 

Celtic F.C. haven’t finished outside of the top 2 of the SPL since 1993 and outside the top 3 since 1965, while Hamilton were relegated from the division less that 4 years ago. We thought we’d put these two clubs up against each other one more time to see which offers the better market in the private rented sector.

Celtic are based in Scotland’s largest city Glasgow, which shows a good yield of 7.9% with an average monthly rent of £494 and average asking price £145,691 while Academicals are based in the small town of Hamilton, South Lanarkshire. With a yield of 6.9% but an average monthly rent of £465 and an average asking price of £118,309, it looses out on yield but is a much cheaper place to buy.
