With solid travel links to major cities such as Manchester and Liverpool, Wigan has recently caught the eye of many property investors.
One of the key factors driving the growth of the property market is its strong economy, with the town being home to several major businesses and organisations, including Amazon, Kellogg’s, and JCB.
Regeneration is also rife in the area, with several major regeneration projects underway, creating new homes, businesses, and amenities.
One of the most significant regeneration projects is the Galleries25 Wigan development, a £130 million project transforming the town’s shopping centre into a new mixed-use district with shops, restaurants, and apartments.
Some of the most popular areas for investment include:
Residential Property: Wigan has a wide range of residential properties to choose from. Prices vary depending on the location and condition of the property, but there are good investment opportunities to be found across the town.
Student Property: Wigan is home to Wigan and Leigh College and the University of Central Lancashire’s Wigan campus. This means that there is a strong demand for student accommodation. Student property can be a good investment for landlords, as it can generate high rental yields.
