A world class city

Manchester is going places. Its renaissance is hallmarked by rising international profile and population – quite simply it’s the fastest growing city in the UK.

A reputation for academic excellence

Home to three of the UK’s largest universities and some of the country’s leading grammar schools, Manchester is producing some of the foremost thinkers within the UK economy.

Increasing population

Manchester’s property market is driven by the city’s ever-increasing population. In ten years to 2013, the city’s population grew by 17.8%, more than double the UK average.

Strong housing demand

Manchester, the UK’s second largest city, is flourishing amid strong housing demand and is becoming increasingly global, according to a report by leading estate agents JLL.

The UK’s Buy-To-Let Hotspot


A survey by HSBC last year revealed that landlords in Manchester are making the biggest rental yields – on average 7.98%. This has been fuelled by one of the largest student populations in Europe, strong demand for private rental accommodation and, by comparison with other regions in the UK, cheaper housing.

Potential investors can look to Manchester’s thriving economy and growing young workforce for further reassurance. Greater Manchester’s gross value added, a measure of the goods and services produced in an area, is now higher than that of the North East, West Yorkshire and Merseyside and is forecast to grow 32% to £75 billion by 2024. By then, more than 110,000 new jobs are forecast to be created, in sectors including the successful services and creative industries.
