Manchester: A High Growth, High Demand Investment Location
A city that’s attracting investment from across the world.
Take just one look at the many cranes that are redrawing Manchester’s skyline right now and you realise that this is a city that’s growing.
A city with a young, expanding population. Home to elite universities and world-famous football clubs. A city with a first-class infrastructure, home to some of the UK’s biggest companies and the world’s largest multinationals. A city with big plans for the future.
It’s also a city with one of the most in-demand—and undersupplied—property markets in the UK.
This is just the start of the growth cycle. With projections forecasting Manchester and the North West to drive UK price growth in the next five years and beyond, everything is in place for the city to remain one of the strongest places to buy property in the UK and Europe.
