Buy-to-Let Manchester

Even though Manchester’s local economy is now very clearly powering forward, property is still very affordable both relative to other parts of the UK and relative to local wages (which are increasing all the time due to the shift from unskilled work to skilled work).

Why invest in Manchester buy-to-let property?

The unofficial “capital of the north”, Manchester is very much the heart of the Northern Powerhouse initiative and since the launch of this scheme it has undergone an impressive process of transformation from having an economy largely based on traditional, heavy industry and agriculture, to having a modern, digital, knowledge-based economy. This transformation has increased housing demand, making buy-to-let in Manchester a popular choice among property investors.

The local authorities in Manchester are doing all they can to maintain this affordability, even though the population of Greater Manchester has been growing rapidly for some time and so are working closely with developers to increase the available housing stock. As a result, investors looking for the best bargains are likely to have plenty of options to buy off-plan buy-to-let property in Manchester.

Demand for rental property is high, due in no small part to the universities and the significant population of young adult professionals, which means that it’s very feasible for investors to achieve good rental yields from Manchester buy-to-let property investments. It’s also worth noting that the fact that Manchester has a brisk housing market means that it’s not only easy for investors to expand their rental portfolio if they wish, but to also exit their investments with good capital growth.

  • The Northern Powerhouse initiative has transformed the local economy
  • Manchester’s economy is global and so in a strong position to withstand Brexit
  • Buy-to-Let in Manchester is still a very affordable property investment option
  • Investors can choose between off-plan purchases, new-builds and resales

The M6 postcode (Pendleton, Claremont, and Langworthy, part of Salford) - While everyone who knows Manchester knows that the M14 postcode is, essentially, an extension of the University of Manchester, it may be less well known that the M6 postcode also has a fair share of students and also young adult professionals.
