Why Manchester is the UK’s Number 1 investment city

Manchester is a city where average property growth is forcasted to be 81% faster than the UK average by 2022
– JLL Residential

A world-famous city with the fastest growing economy in the UK, Manchester is a thriving hub of professional, financial and media-based industries.

Combining one of the most undersupplied rental markets in the UK with a rapidly growing young population, property in Manchester generates the highest average returns of any other UK city. By 2022 rental returns are predicted to accelerate by a further 17.6% – 40% faster than the UK average, while capital appreciation is expected to rise by a further 22.8%.

Property in Manchester returns an average yield of 6.7%

Average rental yields are 67% higher than in London

Apartment prices increased 52% between November 2011 and 2017

Average rents have risen by 25.4% since 2014

UK Property

A safe haven for domestic and international property investors

The UK urgently needs more homes. 240,000 new houses need to be built every year to meet demand, but this figure hasn’t been met for a decade. As a result, house prices continue to rise.

Due to these rising prices, and a new preference towards flexibility, demand for rented accommodation has risen by 17,500 households a month over the past decade. Homeownership is at 30-year low and, by 2025, 60% of 20 to 39-year-olds will privately rent.

It is this combination of sustainable capital growth and regular high yields that attracts investors all over the world to the UK’s property market – and Manchester in particular.

  • In addition to long-term capital growth, UK real estate is also generating the highest levels of regular income in Europe
  • Over two million international investors now own UK property
  • By 2022, UK property prices are expected to rise by 12.6%
  • Over the last three decades, UK residential property has outperformed all other assets, including gilts, equities and commercial property.
