Chairman’s Thoughts – Click to expand

Manchester is giving Birmingham a good run for its money“​Over the last few months, we keep getting clients asking where can they invest and get maximum capital growth and maintain a strong yield at the same time! 

The answer is simple, invest in a regeneration zone with good transport into the city and get involved as early as possible. 

Manchester has been one of the top performing areas for property investors over the last 5 years and some of our clients who got into off-plan projects in the early phases have ready benefited from double-digit growth and we fully expect the upward trend to carry on for now. We simply need to keep picking out the right spots. 

We want to stay a step ahead of the curve and our research shows that now is the time to start investing in the surrounding areas which are not a short commute from the major employment centres and entertainment. This will give investors the ability to get involved and lower prices and ride the wave up. 

We have followed this strategy multiple times before and it works. 

The Ripple Effect- growth starts in the centre and then moves outwards towards the neighbouring areas. This gives us a real opportunity to get in at the softer price point, into the area under huge regeneration. We already know where prices are moving towards, as the city sets the benchmark and the outskirts then follow. 

The most important part still has to be within close proximity to the centre…great transport links, good developers and plenty of regeneration. 

No. 1 Old Trafford ticks all these boxes!
