Located about eight miles South East of Manchester city centre, Bredbury is off the Metrolink but on the Hope Valley Line from Sheffield to Manchester Piccadilly. Trains take residents to Manchester in about 20 minutes and to Sheffield in about an hour. There are also plenty of buses connecting Bredbury with Greater Manchester as a whole.
Bredbury is known for the quality of its schools (both primary and secondary). It’s filled with historic buildings and surrounded by glorious countryside. This means that it’s hugely popular with people looking for affordable family homes within easy commuting distance of Manchester and feasible commuting distance of Sheffield.
Currently, properties in Bredbury have an average sales price of £176,682. Terraced houses are the most affordable with an average sales price of £149,419. Semi-detached houses have an average sales price of £182,912 and detached houses have an average sales price of £276,600.
Average rental yields in Manchester as a whole are around 5.5%. Rental yields in Bredbury tend to be lower, generally in the region of 3% to 4%. That said, it is quite possible to beat this if you learn about the market and watch out for bargains.
Even if the yields don’t look hugely attractive, the fact that Bredbury is a family-friendly area means that tenants tend to stay for extended periods. This can make Bredbury a great place for investors who value ease of management over maximum yield.
Bredbury isn’t really a place you go for leisure and entertainment facilities. It’s a place you go for peace, tranquillity and easy access to stunning countryside. There’s a decent range of everyday practicalities, including the usual brand-name stores. For anything more, you just hop on a train or bus or pop in the car.
