Is now the right time to sell house fast in Manchester?
Manchester is certainly a great place to have a house to sell.
Some research from Saville’s predicts that the highest growth in house prices will be in the north-west in 2022 and experts predict that this growth will be 6% in Manchester. This upward trend in prices in the city and neighbouring areas is likely to continue for up to five years which means that Manchester house price increases will outstrip both London and the UK average.
In 2021, the average house price increased by 10% in Manchester.
The increase in property prices is looking very optimistic for Manchester right now, with an increasing number of new jobs and a reasonable cost of living.
That said, take the above with a grain of salt as prices are always fluctuating and dependant on which area of Manchester your property is situated.
In addition, the cost of living could easily rise and spiral out of control so it's important to remain calm, evaluate your options and then decide whether it's a good idea to sell your house now or sometime in the future.
The best areas to live in Manchester
“Manchester is known to be a safe and friendly place for tourists and locals, with a huge amount to do and see, two of the world’s top football teams, along with top flight universities and ever growing employment opportunities. When you put all this together it’s easy to see why Manchester is somewhere people want to live.”
Manchester has grown considerably in the last 20 years and today is one of the UK’s most famous cities well known for its world class football teams and a legendary music scene. The city has a thriving arts and cultural scene with more than 30 museums and galleries.
The heart of the city is easy to reach as there is the Metro rail link. There is an increase in the number of new jobs being created in the Manchester area especially in the business, financial and professional service sectors. Manchester offers easy access to the UK’s motorway system and rail network and for those wanting to travel further afield, the city has its own international airport.
Different parts of the city appeal to different types of house buyers, depending on whether they are single professionals, a working couple or family as schools, transport links and local facilities will all be important factors for choosing a new home.
The City Centre - Ancoats & Castlefield
Ancoats is one of the most popular places to live in the heart of the city as old mills have been transformed into beautiful apartments and their contemporary designs harmonise with the old cobbled streets and canals. Ancoats is just a 15 minute journey from the centre and is ideal for younger people as most of the housing is flats and these are reasonably priced. It is an area with great nightlife. The Northern Quarter is definitely the place to choose to live if you like action! Quirky and charming and packed with bars and restaurants, every street in this part of the city centre has its own character!
Castlefield is a lovely part of Manchester, very close to the centre and is an Urban Heritage Parkland much of it has been left unchanged. A big advantage of having this status is that the movement of traffic is very limited with plenty of pedestrian areas Castleford is a wonderful blend of Roman forts, pretty cobbled streets, canals and some very modern housing. There is a pedestrian bridge that links this area with the the main centre of Manchester.
Southern Gateway & Spinningfields
Southern Gateway really showcases modern inner city living with an eclectic blend of modern architecture and converted mills with a great range of studios and flats to suit everyone. It is popular with students as it is close to Manchester University and the MMU campus. The Green Quarter also has properties with flats and is popular as it is such a quick commute to the centre of Manchester, either using Victoria Station, the main ring road or taking a 10-15 minute walk.
Spinningfields is a popular place to live with professionals who want to be within easy reach of their work as Spinningfields is one of the commercial districts and is vibrant with plenty of pubs and restaurants and a 15 minute journey to the heart of the city.
This part of Manchester has tremendous new vitality as it has been extensively renovated in recent years. It is a market town and housing includes detached Edwardian houses which do come with a large price tag. There are many more modestly-priced housing options and this makes it popular with first time buyers. There is a thriving community spirit and good schools plus shops, an indoor market, music venues, pubs and restaurants. Reaching the city centre is quick and easy too.
Rusholme is a really popular part of the city, especially with young professionals as the house prices are cheaper. This area is also good for students as rents tend to be lower too. Importantly, for those working in one of the business centres, there is just a 30 minute commute.
This is a popular place to live for celebrities and because it is popular, this is reflected in the property prices. Didsbury lies a few kilometres both from the centre of the city and Manchester Airport which adds to its appeal. It is attractive with green areas. East Didsbury is particularly good for schools and the centre is where there are good shops and restaurants. Commuters have a choice of train, bus and Metro-link for reaching their work place.
Situated just three stops from the centre on the Metrolink is Sale which lies south-west of the city centre and is a really sought after area with a great community feel. Sale is popular with young families as property prices are good and there are properties to suit everyone including some beautiful Victorian and Edwardian detached houses ideal for growing families. There are also some attractively designed modern terraced houses.
Other popular areas in Manchester
There are a number of areas that are perfect for families and are situated just a little further out from the centre. Prestwich lies to the north and access to the city centre takes 35-45 minutes. It is an ideal choice for young families as it has a really good selection of schools for all ages and has housing to suit most budgets.

What can stop you from selling your Manchester house fast?
If you're planning to sell your house fast in Manchester, don't be surprised if it ends up taking longer than you originally estimated.
There are a number of reasons why your property could be taking longer to sell than you would like and many of them are down to good marketing.
Your choice of estate agents can also make all the difference. It will really pay dividends to choose an agent who is dynamic and has a really good window display of properties for sale which includes all the important information buyers are looking for. In addition, a good online presence with a website that is regularly updated and is easy-to-navigate goes a long way in making potential buyers comfortable to shop there.
When you are in a hurry to sell your property you may well not have the time to wait to find a buyer and plenty can go wrong until the exchange of contracts on your property. Many house owners also like to prepare their property to go on the market to get the best price and this takes precious time but is very important to get right.
How to make your home more attractive to buyers
It is important that your house is accurately priced if you want to sell house fast Manchester. An over-priced house will not be snapped up. A good estate agent with sound local knowledge can advise on the value of your house and what house buyers will be prepared to pay.
All of the above points can make your Manchester property more desirable and increase the amount prospective buyers will be likely to pay for it.
It is important to bear in mind that selling your house through a traditional estate agent can take time – especially if there is 'a chain' involved. In 2021 the average time for the purchase of a property from making an offer to holding the house keys in your hand was 18 weeks.
Another hold up that frequently occurs is that potential buyers have not secured a mortgage before they make an offer on a property.
Further delays can also be caused by conveyancing.
Why you may need to sell house fast in Manchester
There are many reasons that can prompt the decision to move. Personal reasons can include divorce, the need for a sizeable amount of money quickly or because you need to move closer to an elderly relative.
Good schools and local amenities can also trigger the decision to move. Often changing job or being moved to a new location by employers makes a house move inevitable. Getting a firm good cash offer based on the current market value of your property fast in these situations can be essential.
An increasing number of sellers want to move with a fast and hassle free sale of their property.
