At just three miles North East of Manchester city centre, Moston locals can feasibly commute by bicycle. There’s also a Metrolink station (shared with Newton Heath), a regular train station and an extensive bus service. Moston is just off the M60 and has excellent road links to Greater Manchester and beyond.
Moston is essentially a residential suburb of Greater Manchester. It has a lot of appeal to families due to the numerous high-quality schools. It also attracts young professionals who want to live somewhere quieter than the city centre but still have easy access to it. Both demographics appreciate the extensive sports facilities and numerous green spaces.
Currently, properties in Moston have an average sales price of £130,145. Terraced properties are the most affordable with an average sales price of £109,493. Semi-detached properties have an average sales price of £139,806 and detached properties have an average sales price of £203,600.
Average rental yields in Greater Manchester are around 5.5%. In Moston, however, it’s possible to achieve yields of 7%+. This is largely because property prices are still fairly affordable compared to Manchester city centre. Demand, however, is very strong and looks likely to remain that way.
The fact that Moston is such a family-friendly location gives it an inbuilt market. In other words, people who grew up in the area are likely to want to stay in it when they move out of the parental home. It’s also an easy locality to market to people from other parts of the country (or world) who are moving to Manchester.
The main attraction of Moston is its numerous sports and fitness venues plus its many green spaces. Moston itself has a decent range of pubs, restaurants and general leisure facilities. It’s also really easy to pop into Manchester city centre to enjoy the best the city has to offer.
