Investing in Manchester Property

Offering a growing business scene, thriving student population, vibrant culture and exciting prospects; Manchester is the ultimate place to live, work and invest. There are so many reasons why this northern city is considered a top UK property investment location. Those interested in Manchester property investment can expect some of the most impressive rental yields throughout the whole of the UK.

Also, expect affordable property prices and fantastic prospects when it comes to capital growth. Manchester is home to some of the most prestigious universities and big names in the business scene, along with boasting some of the highest student retention rates in the country. Pair this with the fact that more people are moving up to Manchester from London in recent years, it is clear why there’s such a high demand for quality property in the city. The city as a whole is on the rise, and the time to invest in Manchester has never been more apparent.

I like to think of Manchester as the Canary Wharf of the North. It's a great place for business and property investment due to the high number of young professionals living there.

A Booming Property Market

It is evident from the Manchester skyline that the region’s property market is booming. Throughout recent years, Manchester has evolved into one of the best digital and technology sectors in Europe. This is why large companies such as the Co-Op Group, BBC and Kellogg’s all reside here, which has helped grow Manchester’s reputation as one of the youngest UK cities.

Almost 70% of the employment in the city centre region is in the knowledge-intensive industries, which makes it particularly accessible for young professionals looking for opportunity. Manchester has multiple expanding regeneration schemes throughout the city which have allowed people to see the real beauty in places that were once forgotten about.

There is a social scene full of start-up entrepreneurs, founders and dreamers all hoping for a shot at the success. However, while the opportunity is vast, and there are world-class leisure facilities available, property prices are still low. As Manchester climbs up the table in terms of places to live and work, rental prices are increasing. This means any investor who takes the plunge now would see high rental yields and capital appreciation in years to come.

As well as accessible transport links to different cities across the country, Manchester also offers a range of new bars, restaurants and shops that residents can enjoy.

The increasing number of fresh-faced professionals entering the Manchester scene every year continues to expand the already prosperous economy.
