Investment property in Manchester has never been more desirable. With a growing population of over 9% according to the latest census, there’s an ever-growing need for available property, whether that be residential, commercial or student property.

Key reasons to invest in manchester property

1. Significant Rental Growth

Manchester’s centre is expected to experience significant growth in rental accommodation. Predictions of an annual increase of 4% until 2027 will no doubt push Manchester forward as the powerhouse that it is, against other cities such as Liverpool and Bristol. Investors looking into South Manchester will be pleased to learn that rental yields will continue to stay high for areas such as Salford and Moston amongst many others.

2. Employment Opportunities

One reason so many people are relocating to Manchester is due to the fantastic employment opportunities and sectors that Manchester has to offer. With 80 FTSE companies calling Manchester their home, the diverse job market continues to prove that Manchester is the place to be for both investors and its residents.

3. Continued Evolution

Naturally, Manchester’s growth has been heavily influenced by the continuous investment into the city’s infrastructure. Local projects include creating and improving green spaces and surrounding neighbourhoods, as well as further funding to build more affordable homes and apartments.

4. Student Hotspot

As a city with a range of university spots to choose from, it’s no wonder Manchester University ranks no.6 in the top universities in the UK, and with a diverse choice of subjects from music to physics, it’s clear to see why more and more students choose to study and live in Manchester.

5. World class transport

As the city benefits from continuous investment to improve its infrastructure, so do its transport links. HS2 will provide excellent links between Manchester and London (and beyond) creating further opportunities for businesses and residents to take advantage of everything Manchester has to offer.

It’s not hard to understand why so many investors have expanded their portfolios and invested in property in Manchester. With a property market that is continuing to grow as more people ditch the hustle of the capital and head north, house prices are expected to increase further and rental prices, both within the centre of Manchester and in more rural areas, have continued to trend upwards.

The economy alone of Manchester City Centre is worth around £6 billion and continues to grow, but across the ten metropolitan boroughs, the economy sits at 78.7 billion, and the city has continued to drive job-growth making it a fairly competitive place to live with plenty of demand.

Manchester Housing Market Forecast

House prices are expected to rise by an estimated 24.3% by 2026

Student populations are forecase to see an annual growth rate of 3% until 2029

Across the North-West, first-time buyers have continued to remain resilient, even with turbulent mortgage rates. Many have been cash buyers as the market stays competitive.

Property rents were up 51% in 2023 compared to 2019 and these numbers are forecast to stay strong through much of 2024. Notable areas such as Oldham, Old Traffic and Bolton are expected to be at the forefront of many new area developments one of which includes the creation of 2,000 new homes.

Although new housing developments have experienced a slower start than usual due to building costs and limited land, the demand for housing doesn’t seem to be slowing. The lack of new houses has created more competition for existing properties entering the market.

Manchester Transport

Manchester’s impressive transport infrastructure needs little introduction and has a range of extensive transport networks across the city making it incredibly easy to venture in and out of Manchester city centre, whether you’re simply visiting, commuting or looking to invest.

HS2 is hot in anticipation of making it much easier for people to travel back and forth between Manchester and London, as well as other surrounding areas and cities. Although recently announced changes to HS2 confirmed the original Manchester to London line is being scrapped there are still plenty of opportunities to get around the UK much quicker than is currently available.

However, when in Manchester you can rely on the Bee Network to ensure you get to your destination with ease and on time. Manchester’s metro link is one of the largest tram networks in the UK and recorded over 36 million passenger journeys in 2022/23. It connects every corner of Manchester from the city centre to the exterior boroughs.

Manchester’s Regeneration

Over the years Manchester has received billions of pounds in investment that continues to transform Manchester into what we see it to be today. For those looking to take advantage of the 6-7% yields that Manchester could provide, you may want to stay in the loop of continued regeneration projects that the city has in store.

Overseas buyers have also taking a liking to the many opportunities throughout Manchester and its ten boroughs, and with a growing population, exceptional graduate retention rates of 51% and expansive projects such as New Islington which aim to create a medley of desirable neighbourhoods, we’re not surprised Manchester has people packing up from London to move to the Northern Powerhouse.
