Greater Manchester’s property market is a buoyant one - whether you are buying a house or looking for somewhere to rent, competition can be fierce.
Regeneration projects over the last few years have seen some less popular areas to live have undergone a revamp - but become less affordable to many.
In June 2022, the average price for a property in Manchester was £250,638 - with Rightmove noting a 10% increase in sold prices over the last 12 months.
And rents are also predicted to keep rising faster than the UK average.
But forget the property experts - we asked readers for their opinions on where is the best place to live in Greater Manchester, in their experience.
