If you’re looking to invest overseas, then the property market in Manchester, England, the major city that is home to Manchester United and Manchester City football clubs is a great choice.
Manchester is a property investment hotspot. The city has an ever-growing population, with more and more people coming into the area to take jobs in its fast-paced business market or to study at its world-class universities. In fact, there are so many tenants trying to get a foothold in the city that rental prices are being pushed up! If you have the money to invest, it’s guaranteed that there will be tenants ready and waiting to move into your properties and that you will see a healthy return on your investment.
Manchester has a great reputation for top-quality higher education. The University of Manchester is part of the prestigious Russell Group of universities, which are considered to be the UK’s best research establishments. Currently ranked the fifteenth best UK University in the Academic Ranking of World Universities 2019.
The four main universities in the area, the University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, Salford University and University of Bolton are home to an enormous 100,000+ students, meaning that there is a huge demand for accommodation for 18 to 30-year-olds. The city is also very popular with international students, particularly those from the Far East, many of whom travel to the city to attend the well-renowned Manchester Business School. It’s easy to see the attraction: with the winning combination of culture, leisure activities, good education opportunities, stunning accommodation and great transport links, it’s a great city in which to branch out and experience the world.
These are just some of the reasons why developers continue to invest in Manchester, building a wide variety of properties across all the different parts of the city to suit all ages, tastes and budgets.
When it comes to things to do, Manchester has them in abundance: there is always a festival, a market or a music event happening in the city centre at any given point in the year: the Manchester International Festival, the Manchester Jazz Festival and the Manchester Christmas Markets, to name but a few. These events mean that people flock into the city from far and wide and once they experience it, many visitors decide never to leave! This helps the demand for Manchester property to continue to rise.
The city has a thriving economy, including the developing business district at Spinningfields, which has been called the Canary Wharf of the North (after the important London financial district). Major international companies all have offices in and around Manchester, with more and more corporations bringing their regional hubs to the city. House prices are continuing to rise in the area, showing the economic power of what is arguably the UK’s second city, it really is a place to invest for the long term.
Manchester benefits from fantastic transport links, which will take you north, south, east and west of the city with ease. The vast Metrolink network is the biggest tram network in the UK and extends out as far as Manchester Airport, offering convenience for the business and leisure traveller alike. What is more, the extensive local bus system extends as far as the neighbouring counties of Lancashire, Yorkshire and Derbyshire. This means that wherever you invest, you and/or your tenants will be able to get into the city centre and out to different areas of the country without any trouble.
Julie Twist Properties is offering investment opportunities from a selection of new developments meaning that you could buy one or more pristine apartments for your portfolio before they have even been lived in or we have an array of re-sale properties that may suit your requirements.
