Very few people buy a house on its property merits alone – its location is almost, if not more, important. So if you’re selling a property, you want to make the most of its location features, particularly if you’re selling in the vibrant, thriving Manchester area.
Manchester’s property market is competitive. According to the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, as many as 217,000 new houses will be needed in the region by 2035 to meet demand. And this demand is reflected in property prices. In Salford, prices rose by 13.1% in 2016 – almost double the national average. In the traditionally affluent borough of Trafford they rose by just over 11% to take the average property price to £261,316, while in Rochdale they rose by 5%.
It makes sense then, that as a property seller you want to work with an online estate agent who knows the area as well as you do, so they can maximise your sale price. It’s important that they know the difference between Sale, with its commuter-friendly links to the M60 and family-friendly period houses, and Castlefield, with its canals, cobbled streets and renovated warehouse flats. It’s important that they have a good understanding of Manchester’s extensive public transport network – these are the things potential buyers ask about, after all.
This is why a number of online estate agents are now employing local experts – individuals who know their patch like the back of their hand – and Manchester is home to several. So whether you’re selling a slick bachelor pad in Piccadilly or a family home in leafy Whitefield, there’s an online estate agent positioned to help you make the most of your property’s location.
