Top property hotspots

Manchester district tops property hotspots

First-time buyers looking for a property with potential should head to east Manchester, according to research published today. A study of Britain's 2,800 postcode districts focusing on their desirability and potential return on investment found the district of Openshaw in greater Manchester to be the top hotspot for those looking to get on to the property ladder. Many of the top 10 hotspots produced by Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) were in the north or Wales, but in the top 20, most areas of the UK were represented.

Researchers for RBS looked at 20 factors they thought would be important to new buyers, including transport links, demographics and recent house price growth. Five factors were deemed to be of key importance, but top of the list was a below average ratio of house prices to local earnings.

The top 10 housing hotspots:
1 Openshaw, Manchester (M11)
2 Middlesborough, Teeside (TS1)
3 Ardwick, Manchester (M12)
4 Falkirk, Scotland (FK1)
5 Ferndale, South Wales (CF43)
6 Kingston-upon-Hull (HU3)
7 Blaenrhondda, South Wales (CF42)
8 Stratford, London (E15)
9 North central Stoke-on-Trent (ST1)
10 Leven, Scotland (KY8)

Check out the RBS web site and study their First Time Buyer Property Index - it's good information for buy to let property investors as well as ftb's.

Hi Chris Bell, coming across this post on Top property hotspots, I thought maybe someone down here might have some good advice on how to sell your own house without a real estate agent. I’ve heard that according to a number of different sources, between 80% and 90% of owners who attempt to sell their homes on their own eventually enlist the aid of a realtor. Would anyone reccomend to deal with these guys sell my house fast ? I’m afraid I might be in for a loss or getting much less then the market value. Thanks for your insight.
