Wigan is a key part of the ongoing growth across the North West with such a vast amount of open space available and a total population of 318,000 amounting to 12% of Greater Manchester’s Entire Population.
With such a dense population and idyllic location development and regeneration in Wigan is imminent, with the area already demonstrating recent appreciation in value and desirability amongst residents and investors alike.
Currently, Wigan offers extremely affordable house prices across the board with huge upward potential. In fact, as is the case across the North West region, Wigan house prices have risen by 4.83% in the last 12 months alone with average price of a Wigan property now at approximately £202,000.
Historically, rental yields across the North West have proven robust and steady, and yields throughout Wigan are no exception with the average yield currently in excess of 4% for properties throughout the area.
Part of the North West’s ‘Green Belt’, Wigan is home to a range of stunning parks and nature attractions including Haigh Woodland Park, Fairy Glen and Worthington Lakes.
For those who prefer city centre entertainment, Wigan is ideally located between both Liverpool and Manchester with excellent transport links to both. With additional road connections to the rest of the UK and extensive rail links Liverpool and Manchester can be reached in 30 minutes with a trip to London taking just over 2 hours with travel times expected to further reduce with the arrival of HS2.
