Why Manchester Should be on Your Radar for Property Transactions

  • Posted on

Following an analysis by the HomeOwners Alliance, it has been revealed that Manchester property sales are three times faster than London.

The free EstateAgent4ME tool tracks the speed of the property market, providing homeowners with a greater understanding of their local market and provides details on which estate agents have the best track record for selling homes most quickly. 
Compared to London, where an average conveyancing transaction takes up to three times longer and with Manchester at the forefront of the Northern Powerhouse, it is clear why this vibrant city is high on the agenda for many buyers. With the amount of investment being pumped into the city, creating new job opportunities for many, Manchester provides the most profitable rental returns in the UK for landlords.
It is envisaged that Manchester will be in the top 5 fastest growing cities between now and 2021 which will increase the need for houses and property investments. Also, according to a recent analysis by Telegraph Money, more than half a million mortgages could be due to expire in 2018 creating a boom in property transactions.
