In information provided by HM Land Registry, it appears that property prices in Manchester are rising at a rate three times the national average. If you are a property owner in Manchester, this news will be hugely positive, giving you confidence about the future. These are difficult times for many people with respect to the property market and this is shown by the fortunes in London.
For many years, property prices in London grew at a fast rate, with many homeowners expecting to make a tidy profit on their home. However, at the start of 2019, London property prices are being classed as being in a slump and the confidence in the capital has diminished. It is not as though anyone should take any joy or glee out of the misfortune of others, but it should serve as a reminder that property market trends are often just that, trends, and they won’t go on forever.
According to the HM Land Registry figures, the average price of property in Manchester, as of October 2018, stood at £183,354. The October 2017 figure stood at £171,477 which meant that there was an increase of £11,877 across the year, which relates to an increase of 6.9%.
