Stockport Investment Property
Stockport’s reputation as an investment hotspot in the UK just keeps on growing. Located seven miles south of Manchester, Stockport has always been synonymous with its industrial past but, in recent years, it has increasingly become highly attractive to businesses within the financial, professional and digital sectors which is why property for sale in Stockport is on the rise. The town has all the hallmarks of a first-class buy-to-let location – value for money, excellent connectivity and a thriving local economy, as well as one of the highest employment rates and most skilled workforces in the region. Greater Manchester is one of the most exciting regions when it comes to property investment. Stockport has easy access to all key locations around Greater Manchester and great connectivity to other areas of the country.
The town centre is in the midst of an extensive £1bn regeneration program. It has already seen the introduction of Redrock entertainment complex, which includes a cinema, shops and a number of restaurants. The town will also see a complete revamp of the Merseyway Shopping Centre, and the west part of the town centre is being transformed into a green and pedestrianised neighbourhood, introducing new homes and commercial space into the area.
The railway station is due to undergo a £120m transformation, turning it into a modern transport interchange complete with a residential development and a two acre public park. Stockport is also ideal for those travelling by car. It is situated just off the M60, which has direct access to the majority of Greater Manchester metropolitan boroughs, as well as links to other motorways if you’re travelling further afield. With the growing development of the Northern Powerhouse, the town looks set for a continued period of growth, making now a great time to consider investing in property for sale in Stockport.
