ITV commissioned Rightmove to find out where property prices are increasing the most. The North West dominates. Here are the top ten.
For the fourth year running, the Demos-PwC Good Growth for Cities Index has rated Preston as the best city to live and work in the North West and 14th nationally. When combined with much lower property prices than Manchester, the city has become an investment hotspot.
When considering the North West, it is easy not to think beyond Manchester and Liverpool. However, substantial investment in infrastructure and regeneration, affordable property prices and high yields make Preston a very attractive alternative.
A study by one of the industry giants found that property values close to a major regeneration site increased over 3% p.a. faster than the wider area. These are 4 of the fastest changing cities in England and their regenerating areas that investors should have on their radar.
