1. The Perfect North West Commuter Town
Nestled ideally near the A49 and A577, Wigan is gifted with some of the most convenient transport links in Greater Manchester.
Thanks to the nearby A roads, Wigan has direct access to the M6, M61, and M58, making commuting across the Greater Manchester region incredibly easy.
Yet despite these excellent transport links, it’s the train links that make a rental accommodation investment in Wigan so ideal.
With two train stations available in Wigan town centre, Wigan North Western and Wigan Wallgate, residents can get easy access to Manchester city centre and Liverpool in around half an hour.
Likewise, Manchester airport is just 50 minutes away, with direct links to Glasgow, Edinburgh, and even London all at the fingertips of Wigan’s dense population of 320,000.
Its location is even good news for businesses. As it’s conveniently located between Liverpool and Manchester, the town has access to both the Port of Liverpool and Manchester Ship Canal, which sees over 40 million tonnes of cargo each year.
With such a dense population, there is high demand for rental property in Wigan and its surrounding areas, offering a sizeable opportunity for lucrative Wigan buy to let investments.
If you’re considering a Manchester investment, this town may be an ideal choice at a far more affordable price point.
