There are similar strong forecasts for economic growth. According to Halifax, Salford was the biggest property hotspot of 2015, with the number of property sales jumping by 23% compared to the previous year.

A major infrastructure boost benefiting the area has recently been announced with the Government giving the green light to a new £350 million Metrolink line, providing a direct link to the Trafford Centre, a popular shopping destination. The route, with six new stops, will run from the existing Pomona station and is part of a £1.5 billion expansion programme that will see the Metrolink network double in size.

The BBC’s move to MediaCityUK, home of the creative and digital businesses including the BBC and ITV, sparked a demand that now sees Salford as one of the UK’s foremost property hotspots.

Now, MediaCityUK is set to double in size with planning approved for up to ten new buildings with a development value of more than £1 billion, creating hundreds of new jobs for the area. The expansion will include new TV and studio space, shops and offices and a new 330 bed hotel.

Recent statistics by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show that UK’s population is ageing as the number of people above 65 years are increasing. With the increase in the elderly and infirm come a need for proper quality care homes to cater to age-related illnesses and disabilities such as dementia.

The Ageing Society in Greater Manchester

As with the rest of the UK, Greater Manchester faces a growing need for social care due to an increasing elderly population and rising levels of people living with dementia.

A seventh of Greater Manchester’s population – around 400,000 residents – are aged 65-plus, a figure that is expected to increase by around 20% by 2021 (32% for those aged 85-plus).

There are around 90,000 people in the North West of England currently living with dementia, with more than 29,500 of those in Greater Manchester. More than 3,000 people have been diagnosed with dementia in the past year in Greater Manchester.

A recent report suggests that Greater Manchester will witness an 85% increase in the number of people diagnosed with some form of dementia by 2036.

The rise in over-65s and cases of dementia has put greater pressure on local health and social services, and generated additional demand for new, sustainable high-quality care facilities staffed by dedicated professionals.

MANCHESTER – STRONGEST HOUSE PRICE GROWTH

Image credit: Experience Invest

Nationwide recently named Manchester as the UK city with the strongest house price growth in 2013 with values up 21% in one year. Manchester outperformed all other cities and the national average of 8.4%. Thanks to a large student and working population, Manchester now ranks as the no 1 location for rental yields by HSBC.

Manchester’s growing attraction to investors is driven by its economic performance, growing population and position at the centre of the UK Chancellor’s GBP7 billion ‘Northern Powerhouse’, but most important of all is the value investors can find in the city.

Property prices in Manchester remain 13.6% below their pre-recession peak, and conservative forecasts put price growth to 2019 at 20%. Meanwhile the city’s thriving lettings market has been recognised by HSBC as one of the UK’s top ten buy-to-let hotspots, recording the highest yields in the UK between 2010 and 2015 at 6.02% per annum. The average apartment in Manchester is just over a third of the price of an equivalent property in central London.

Travellers could get from London to Birmingham in 49 minutes, or be in Manchester in just over an hour thanks to the high speed rail. Image taken from: http://bit.ly/1VJrg3S

Transportation in Manchester is a breeze. Trams, buses, trains and cabs easily link the city centre to Greater Manchester including Northern Manchester and Salford Quays, where MediaCityUK is located. Meanwhile, infrastructure projects such as the HS2, a high-speed railway link between Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds; and the One North rail project will boost the city’s accessibility. Further investment in Manchester Airport – the biggest development in the UK outside of London – will also increase the city’s connectivity with international markets.

The Epitome of Cool Student Living

Vita Student Glasgow is the brand’s tenth development and represents an evolution of its proven approach. It has been modelled on both student feedback and the latest architectural developments. Not only is the residence the largest and most aligned with the needs of the modern student in the Vita Student portfolio, it is also located in a prime position in one of the largest student markets in Europe.

Not only is it situated in the heart of Glasgow’s popular West End – the city’s best performing property market – it is just a few hundred metres from the area’s largest university and at the entrance to a £1.2 million retail and leisure redevelopment of Glasgow Harbour.
