Manchester has long been one of the best places for buy-to-let investors and with average yields of over 6%, there are plenty of opportunities for property investors to get in on the action. As well as robust rental yields throughout the region, Manchester also benefits from one of the UK's levels of capital appreciation. In a recent Zoopla Report (June 2022), Manchester was ranked the country's third-highest capital appreciation, with annual house prices in Manchester showing a year-on-year increase of 9.6%.
A recent report from the Office of National Statistics, looking at UK house prices over the past 20 years (2002-2022) showed that over this period Manchester had experienced the highest level of capital appreciation in its property prices. Over the twenty years, the price of the average property in Manchester has increased from £48,845 in 2002, to over £210,000 in 2022. This represented a percentage increase of over 330%!
Whilst it obviously far more difficult to predict future property prices in the city, the increasing level of structural demand, driven by lower levels of supply and increasing population undoubtedly present a positive framework for clients looking to purchase a buy to let property in Manchester and the surrounding areas.
