“JLL estimates that currently up to 3,000 units are needed per year for a growing city centre population expected to rise from 55,000 currently to 100,000 by 2026. And given that delivery in the last five years has averaged less than 1,000 new units per annum, a ramp up in supply is long overdue.” – JLL

Manchester – Powerhouse of the North

Manchester is rich in heritage, with an established economy and a multi-modal transport network, including the UK’s largest regional airport with daily flights to global destinations. Manchester is also known for its two world-class football clubs, which alone generates a vast amount of tourism and trade.

Manchester Residential Growth

Over the next five years, Manchester capital value growth is expected to reach 28.2% as a result of growing demand and supply. House prices in England’s north-west are set to rise by 18.1% until 2021, property advisors JLL have revealed in a recently published research paper. This data comes after a great year for Mancunian residential property, as it has already experienced a growth of 16% in capital values in 2016.

The area’s imbalance between supply and demand is one of the main reasons why the growth rate in the north-west is currently outpacing the rest of the UK. JLL predicts that, as a result of this continuing lack of supply, both rents and capital values will continue to increase drastically over the coming years. Capital value in Manchester is expected to grow by 28.2% over the next five years whilst rental prices are forecast to increase by 20.5% over the same period, (JLL February 2017).
