A look at the market in…Blackpool and Manchester

This month we take a look at how the housing market is doing in the North West.

Branch Manager of Hunters Blackpool, Gareth Welsh reports a positive start to 2014, saying,
“We're definitely seeing an improvement in the market. In March alone we had our best sales month since 2007. The market is buoyant. We have been receiving many more enquiries, however, here in Blackpool the 'price rise' is very much below the national average but it is picking up steadily.”

Lettings Negotiator and Property Valuer, Emily Roy at Hunters Manchester also gives us an insight, saying ‘We are seeing a lot of repossessions coming onto the market, which is great for those first timers who want a bargain and for investors who want a quick turnaround for maximum profit. We are hoping to see a continued, steady growth in property prices, hopefully not too fast or it will cut out a significant amount of people only looking to purchase at the lower end of the market!”
