Greater Manchester – A Great Investment Opportunity

Greater Manchester is one of the top property hotspots in the UK and, within the region, Salford is leading the way. This has been particularly apparent at Salford’s waterfront which has been injected with £560m worth of investment, regenerating the site from underused docklands into a business hub with world-class facilities and a rich cultural offering.

The regenerated Salford Quays area is an enormous success, with not only Salford, but Greater Manchester as a whole benefitting from the first phase of the booming MediaCityUK site. Key features include the University of Salford’s on-site presence, occupying a 100,000 sqft site, as well as a beautiful waterside piazza which is perfect for accommodating large-scale events for up to 4,000 people.

With planning permission granted in 2006, Phase 2 of MediaCityUK is now well underway, and will feature additional residential, commercial and leisure developments as well as more open public spaces. The second phase of MediaCityUK will complement the infrastructure that is already in place with buildings linked together by the spacious community public areas which define MediaCityUK as a premier destination to live, work and invest. /vc_column_text]

Serious Undersupply

Stoke-on-Trent is home to 22,700 students, enrolled at Keele University and Staffordshire University with only 18.4% of students having access to university-owned halls of residence. What’s more, there are only 605 units in privately-owned Purpose Built Student Accommodation across Stoke, meaning 17,941 students have no access to their preferred accommodation. At 15.9%, the city’s proportion of overseas students is three times larger than the UK average (Knight Frank) – a key demographic for Purpose Built Student Accommodation. Stoke-on-Trent is located in England’s West Midlands region, just an hour’s drive from both Liverpool and Manchester, and a 90-minute train ride from London.

The University Quarter is a £282 million initiative designed to create a state-of-the-art learning site in Stoke-on-Trent and home for Staffordshire University, Stoke-on-Trent College and Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College.

VITA Student Portswood offers a total of 435 units, including studios of various configurations, double occupancy units and disabled access units.

The development is located next to Sainsbury supermarket and within walking distance to restaurants, bars, shops and the train station. Units are expected to be in the price range of £120K – £150K.

Investment Highlights

Southampton is home to 40,000 students and the renowned Russell Group University of Southampton. Purpose built student accommodation is scarce in these parts and students contend with living in the limited number of PBSAs and HMOs in the vicinity. Because if the high volume of students, in May 2016, Southampton Council adopted the Article 4(1) law to limit the number of ordinary homes students can live in. It wants students to live in high-quality purpose built accommodation which frees up ordinary housing stock for local families. This new council regulation will severely limit number of planning permissions for future HMOs.

BREATHING NEW LIFE INTO LONDON’S MOST DIVERSE HERITAGE QUARTERS

Once the site of a domestic rabbit warren in the grounds of  a Tudor house, in the late 17th century the area was developed for the manufacture of munitions, expanding the base at Gun Wharf. By World War 1 the Royal Arsenal had grown to cover 1285 acres and employ almost 80,000 people. Although closed as a factory in 1967, the Ministry of Defence didn’t move out until 1994 and for years the site has been a well-kept secret. Until now — as the Royal Arsenal Riverside, a stunning waterfront residence.

Royal Arsenal Riverside has superb transport links.

MANCHESTER – STRONGEST HOUSE PRICE GROWTH

Image credit: Experience Invest

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.

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.
