The city of Manchester is experiencing a period of growth and its property market is buoyant.
Much is going on in the Northern city and a report has just revealed that Manchester homes have seen the highest price increase over 20 years of any UK city.
Land Registry statistics show that over 20 years Manchester property prices went from £44,201 in 2000 to £191,505 in 2020.
2021 looks set to be a strong year for Manchester with some great property investment opportunities.
There has been much regeneration and developers are seeing a huge opportunity for new build schemes and refurbishments.
Eighty out of the 100 FTSE companies have a presence in Manchester. It is a location that many big businesses are choosing to relocate to from London, due to the low rent and the fact that Manchester is the fastest growing economy in the UK.
The city is a media and digital hub, attracting a pool of young talent from the 100,000 students across five universities located within Manchester and beyond. Media City is a £650m, 200-acre regeneration project focused on media and digital. Part of the BBC and ITV national operations have moved to here creating 15,000 jobs. A further £1bn has been pledged to expand Media City by an additional 7.7 hectares meaning there will be appetite for even more jobs in the area.
The big student market and number of young professionals and young families wanting a city centre lifestyle creates massive demand for rental properties.
It’s a vibrant city; ideal for young professionals and students. Many people previously residing in London now call Manchester their home.
Manchester has the largest airport outside of London. The airport flies to over 25 destinations including four direct flights a week to Hong Kong and 22 flights a week to Dubai as well as direct flights to Abu Dhabi, New York, Beijing and Singapore. By 2026 London will be a 1-hour commute on the new High Speed Railway, HS2, while the city’s extensive tram network opens up the surrounding areas and beyond with a range of Northern Hub rail investment proposed for the near future.
Manchester is a great property investment opportunity, with prices predicted to rise considerably over the coming years.
