Beswick has seen above average price growth in the last 12 months.

 

House buyers in Manchester continue to be more concerned with their own housing needs rather than worrying about the ongoing political chaos with prices across the city continuing to rise.

According to Hometrack, the average price of a property in Manchester now stands at £169,300, a rise of 1.83 per cent over the past 12 months reflecting continued strong demand.

This is compared to Greater London where prices have been slashed by 2.5 per cent over the past year as many buyers continue to be worried by the potential repercussions of Brexit.

Whilst Manchester’s growth in prices is slightly lower than the overall North West rise of 2.1 per cent, certain areas across the city are performing well above the average.

MEN Property asked property website Zoopla to find the top ten performing Manchester postcodes for house price growth over the past 12 months and the results were surprising.

If you think it would be the usual suspects like Didsbury and Altrincham boosting the figures you’d be wrong.

Instead, areas in North and East Manchester are driving property price rises with the M8 postcode area of Cheetham Hill and Crumpsall topping the charts with a rise of 4.75 per cent. That equates to a growth of £6,357 in real terms.
