As much as one-quarter of the city’s population is reportedly aged between 20 to 29.

There is a buzzing social scene available to techies, founders and start-up entrepreneurs; the result is that Manchester has become a cosmopolitan place to live, where affordable property prices, thriving business, world-class leisure facilities and excellent transport links provide a fabulous lifestyle for young professionals and their growing families.

Is buy to let in Manchester a good investment idea?

Yes, it is arguably the best place for buy to let investments in the UK based on current rental returns. Given its large student population and its reputation as a city for young professionals, there are plenty of buy to let opportunities across Manchester. The city centre population continues to increase and there is even more scope for further growth as multi-national organisations, banks, consulting firms and lawyers recognise the advantages of establishing their headquarters and investing in the city. The rental market is booming in Manchester so it should be near the top of your list for buy to let investments.

How to choose the best property investment in Manchester

Choosing the right investment property will depend on a number of factors. The most important things to consider are your available resources and your investment goals. There is no shortage of property investment opportunities in Manchester, which includes a diverse mix of people, cultures, and backgrounds. This diversity is reflected in the properties and opportunities that are available to investors. Whether you want to invest in a buy to let family home in Greater Manchester or an apartment in the city centre, it has something for everyone.

How should I finance my Manchester property investment?

Depending on your financial circumstances, there are a number of ways to finance your investment in Manchester property. Some like to save up their money and pay for the property in cash. This may seem like a wise idea, except that it can tie up your cash reserves – preventing you from buying other properties or making much-needed repairs on your existing property (or properties). Another strategy is to get a mortgage, by putting 20% down, for your investment property. While it may seem counterintuitive to incur more debt, this can actually pay off in the long-term. As rent payments come in, your mortgage will eventually be paid off. Other investors may prefer to look for private financing to purchase their investment properties, such as through a private money lender. Though financing of this kind usually requires some kind of track history as an investor, or at least some kind of relationship with the private lender, this type of financing can be quite lucrative.

Everything was dealt with utmost efficiency and professionalism.

When I moved to Baroque Gardens in August 2016, I expected to be in for a rough ride.
The agent responsible for the initial part of the rental process was Crest Residential and they took a long time to sort each step from the offer to the signature of the agreement, making for a very stressful move.
As soon as Ezytrac took over, though, everything was dealt with utmost efficiency and professionalism.
During the first part of my tenancy, property coordinator Machaela was my first point of contact at EzyTrac, who handled my initial questions always answering to my e-mails promptly and politely.
I stayed almost two years in that property and during that time I never had any problem with EzyTrac whatsoever.
When I decided to move on, lettings coordinator Sarah took me through all the steps of ending the tenancy, making for a smooth and easy transition.

During my last month at the property, when the property was put back of the market, a reasonable number of viewings were scheduled at sensible times. The agents showing the property were friendly and quick causing almost no inconvenience.

The inventory check-out was fair and the rent deposit was returned on time with reasonable pre-agreed deductions.
Overall, working with EzyTrac was a very positive experience and I reassure that moving to a property managed by them will result in a straight forward and peaceful tenancy.

Mr O - Tenant

The team clearly enjoy helping others

Gladfish have been very pleasant and professional throughout. I would never have taken the plunge if I had not met Ryan. He set my nerves at ease and showed me the ropes. The team clearly enjoy helping others. Thanks so much

Nicole

Very good help and service

Very good help and service from James.

Jiten

We have since increased this to 3

Though we were initially only looking at a single purchase, we have since increased this to 3, because the team make us feel very confident in what we, and they, are doing. We would recommend them to anyone.

Richard

Far less stressful to be guided

Before we came into contact with Gladfish we already owned three properties in addition to our own home. We have learned that we were not working to any sort of plan but were hoping for the best and working through problems as they arose. Since working with Gladfish, we have now bought two buy-to-let properties with them. Importantly, we know where the money is coming from and where it is going to in advance. We find it far less stressful to be guided by the team that Brett has. My wife Fiona often remarks "if only we had found Gladfish sooner."

Tony and Fiona

Diligent kept in touch throughout the whole process

Sandie was very responsive from the outset and helpfully suggested ways in which we could perhaps unblock the sink/ pipes ourselves. In the end, this wasn't possible, and so Sandie arranged for a contractor to unblock the pipes and diligently kept in touch throughout the whole process. Sandie was very clear and her tone was professional from the word go. We were very happy with the service.

Peter - Tenant

I can rely on

I have been working with Gladfish for years now, and I have to say, I have never looked back. I would recommend them to anyone, from first-time investors to seasoned investment professionals. I started off as a very nervous first-time buyer back in 2012, and over the last few years, their property consultant has helped me develop my confidence and knowledge in property investment by being a huge support. They are friendly, professional and approachable, but most importantly, passionate about what they do which is what I believe distinguishes Gladfish from other companies. Property Consultants always have time for their clients, on occasions, I have been known to call them up at 10 pm at night with questions about an upcoming property purchase! The whole of the Gladfish team seem client-focused, and they are also extremely well connected. From the day you become a client, all the hassles of property purchasing/investment get taken off your plate (if that’s what you want) and it just makes everything so much less stressful. I’m so glad to know I have a company I can rely on to buy my properties off for life.

Nicky

Outstanding Support

Once again, Caroline provided outstanding support during the purchase of a property. She was in frequent contact with the seller, solicitor and myself, ensuring that the purchase was progressing as quickly as possible. She is attentive, patient and conscientious - without doubt, she eased the entire process for me. Worthy of the highest rating.
