Swinton is located about four miles NorthWest of Manchester city centre and three and a half miles from Salford. It is not, yet, on the Metrolink, but it does have two railways stations within convenient distance. Journey time to Manchester is about 15 minutes. There are also numerous local buses and excellent road links.
Although modern Swinton is largely a commuter town for people working in Manchester and MediaCity UK, it is also the seat of Salford City Council. This means that there is also a reasonable amount of demand from people working locally.
Currently, properties in Swinton have an average sales price of £190,287. Terraced properties are the most affordable with an average sales price of £144,217. Semi-detached properties have an average sales price of £205,270 and detached properties have an average sales price of £330,670.
Average rental yields in the Greater Manchester area are in the region of 5.5%. For Swinton specifically, about 4% would be a more reasonable expectation. The main reason for this is that most demand in Swinton is from families looking for good schools and a reasonable commute. These tenants are often very price-sensitive but they also tend to stay for a long time.
Swinton has excellent sporting facilities, particularly for football and rugby. There are plenty of green spaces for general recreation and easy access to the countryside. It also has a decent range of retailers, with a mixture of brand-names and boutique stores plus a good selection of restaurants, cafes and pubs.
