Why Salford?

Greater Manchester is a conurbation of ten boroughs including the two cities of Salford and Manchester. Salford is a city that has recently grown in both reputation and popularity. It is the more rural of the two, with vast green spaces and the River Irwell meandering throughout the city.
With the relocation of both the BBC and ITV to Salford's MediaCityUK (one of the leading digital industry hubs in Europe), the city has experienced a dramatic increase in business activity and migration. This has led to a rise in value of properties and rental accommodation.
In fact research by KPMG shows that the move of the BBC to Salford Quays has contributed as much as £277m to the UK's Gross Value Added in 2014/15. At the same time the population in Salford has grown rapidly: a variety of sources report that leading up to the end of the first half of 2015, its total population increased by 1.3% - bringing the overall number to 242,040.

To accommodate such growth, Salford is seeing a huge amount of regeneration happening across all areas: projects include the likes of MediaCityUK, the £10 million
Chapel Street Corridor transformation and the current Salford Central project worth an impressive £650 million, all of which have galvanised the city. So much so, that
according to online property portal Zoopla, the value of homes experienced an upsurge of as much as 12% in the first half of 2014.

Investors and developers alike are increasingly realising the true potential of the city of Salford. This has manifested itself in the form of approximately 3,000 new houses and 11,000 new apartments granted planning permission by Salford City Council by the end of Q1 2015. It is therefore no surprise that in 2014, Salford was titled the UK's 'buy-to-let hotspot' by HSBC. This wonderful city is set for a bright future filled with endless possibilities in terms of infrastructure improvements, and continued inward investment. In fact, it is estimated that the city will receive in excess of £3.5bn worth of investment into non-residential property over the
next 10 years. Port Salford, is a £400m conversion project of the Salford Docks aiming to create the only inland multi-modal distribution park in the UK to be reached by rail, road and sea is one of the planned regeneration projects in the Salford area that is set to enhance the local infrastructure and boost the regional economy. Additionally, by the end of 2018, the Salford Central project is due to be finished, with key elements being the transformation of Chapel Street.

Why Manchester?

Greater Manchester is one of the most talked about areas in the UK at the moment, as it has been targeted for devolution and has been deemed as a key player in the Northern Powerhouse scheme. Of the 8 boroughs and two cities of the Greater Manchester area, it is Manchester which has shot to prominence on a global scale over the past 12 months. Repeatedly awarded titles such as "buy-to-let hotspot" or "best place to live", Manchester is a city second to none. It has everything and anything on offer for its population no matter their interests, budgets or personalities. Not only is it home to world renowned football clubs Manchester United and Manchester City, but it also has a vast array of first-class restaurants, trendy bars, quirky cafes, excellent shopping facilities, superb museums and a variety of concert venues.

In line with Chancellor George Osborne's Northern Powerhouse campaign (the attempt to rebalance the British economy by closing the economic gap between the North and South), Greater Manchester has received a £1bn Devolution Deal, which has gained it increased inward investment from both national and international
