Bury town centre has gone through mass regeneration in recent years, it now looks almost unrecognisable on what it was only 5 years ago. ‘The Rock’ redevelopment has been a huge success in attracting visitors from around the North West that would otherwise have visited other towns in the region. Transport links have been improved with Manchester city centre, there are now regular double length buses running every 10 minutes and the upgraded Metrolink system carries commuters in to the city centre in under 30 minutes. This has all lead to increased interest in property among young professionals who can’t afford to live in the city centre and families who would prefer a more suburban lifestyle.
The property prices in Bury are more varied than almost anywhere else in the North West of England. Not only are there huge variations depending on the area you choose to move to but the fluctuations in value on an annual basis in recent years has been way above the national average. The average price for a 1 bedroom home in Bury is currently £87,366 and a 2 bedroom home will cost around £117,911, according to Zoopla. As part of The Rock redevelopment, a number of brand new apartment blocks have been built in the town centre to attract young professionals who would otherwise move to the centre of Manchester. Unfortunately, this hasn’t been as successful as they envisaged so there are now some great deals available for first time buyers.
