    Property Investments in Manchester

    Property investment in Manchester continues to boom, bringing lucrative returns for the many investors that have set their sights northwards. With housing demand high and the city exceeding national growth forecasts, Manchester is one of the most promising locations to start (or advance) your investment journey.

    Why is Property Investment in Manchester so compelling?

    Manchester is a fantastic city and one with much to offer for a sharp investor. Greater Manchester is made up of two cities – Salford and the city of Manchester itself. Size-wise, Manchester stretches across approximately 44 square miles, with the Greater Manchester metropolitan county being the second-largest urban area in the UK (after London), featuring a huge surface area of 493 square miles.

    Manchester is an Affordable City

    Whilst purchasing property in Manchester city centre might be a little more expensive than other areas of Greater Manchester, it’s still a lot more affordable than it would be to buy the equivalent property in London or the South East.

    Excellent Transport Links

    Manchester is conveniently close to several other major urban areas, including Liverpool, Sheffield and Leeds, and features an excellent transport infrastructure for getting out and about.

    Manchester Is an Industrial Hub

    Manchester is part of the ‘Northern Powerhouse’ and was the world’s first industrial city, being a centre of the textile industry during the industrial revolution. The city has undergone a huge regeneration scheme over the past few decades, making many business opportunities available for those who know how to take advantage of them.

    Manchester is a regional base for many companies and organisations, including: Barclays, The Co-operative Group, The Guardian Media Group, Kellogg’s, Marks and Spencer, Warburtons.

    The Housing Market in Manchester

    One of the most important things you need to research before deciding to invest in Manchester is the current state of the housing market. 

    The property market can change rapidly depending on the current economy and recent world events, so it’s not always easy to predict what’s going to happen in the future. However, a city with fantastic economic growth like Manchester shows great potential for those wanting to invest in it.
