Manchester is an attractive choice for investors. This dynamic, modern city is a key part of the Northern Powerhouse and as such has profited from huge amounts of investment and redevelopment. It’s a hub of international companies and skilled employees. With a thriving economy and exceptional industrial heritage it’s no wonder more and more people are coming to Manchester.
Benefitting from one of the UK’s biggest international airports and excellent motorway links, Manchester is well-situated to serve the rest of the country and beyond. The forthcoming HS2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail projects will further cut travel times between Manchester, London and other key northern cities, helping businesses grow and commuters reach their destinations quicker than ever.
250 years ago Manchester was at the heart of the industrial revolution. Nowadays a diverse range of international businesses like Adidas, Google and Siemens have set up regional, national or international head offices in the city. Thanks to this large number of successful businesses in Manchester the local economy is flourishing.
With four top universities in the region Manchester is home to a skilled, ambitious workforce. Young professionals are also moving to Manchester from the South East to take advantage of the innovative, creative atmosphere at a much lower cost of living. All of these people need somewhere to live – often choosing city-centre locations – making Manchester’s property market a good choice for investors.
