Manchester Named Buy-To-Let Hotspot

Whether you already have a number of buy-to-let properties in your portfolio or are looking to start out as a landlord, Manchester has been highlighted as one of the top places in the country to invest in the housing market.

In an article for Property Investor Today Mark Burns, managing director of property investment company Hopwood House, pointed out that the buy-to-let market in Manchester is outperforming many other parts of the UK at present.

He highlighted rental yields of nearly nine per cent in some areas of the city – most notably Langworthy, Claremont and Salford – although he added that yields of just over eight per cent can still be achieved in places such as Rusholme, Fallowfield and Moss Side.

Areas that are close to one of the city’s universities are a good choice for investors, Mr Burns noted.

Investment in regeneration across Manchester is another factor that’s helping to boost the appeal of property in the city, as well as the appeal of the city as a whole as a place to live and work.

If you’re considering buying a property in Manchester you may also want to look at areas that are particularly popular among renters. Last month a report found that Didsbury was one of the most sought-after areas among renters, along with Heaton Moor in Stockport, and Sale or Altrincham.

Of course, you need to ensure any rental property you own is up to standard, so before you get any tenants in you should carry out roof surveys in Manchester to make sure there’s no immediate work that needs doing.
