The city’s property market has been booming in recent years, prompting billions of pounds to pour into property developments across Manchester. Even so, housebuilders and developers are still struggling to keep up with demand and average prices have risen by more than 11% during 2020. This brings the average price of a property in Manchester up to £231,499 for the past year, while the average monthly rent for a three-bedroom property in the city stands at £1,091 in April 2021.

Manchester is the UK’s third most-visited city after London and Edinburgh. It also has the busiest airport outside London. It’s celebrated for its architecture, sports clubs and venues, cultural heritage and scientific achievements. As a result, the city is often described as the UK’s second city, despite its status as the fifth largest.

Manchester has even acquired the status of UNESCO City of Literature. This is thanks to its connections with authors such as Elizabeth Gaskell, Friedrich Engels and, more recently, Carol Ann Duffy.

The three universities in Manchester attract thousands of students every year. This is a significant source of demand for student flats in Manchester. A large number of new developments offer affordable studio flats to rent and buy, to cater for the constant flow of student tenants.
