Buying A House In Wigan
Situated between the two larger cities of Liverpool and Manchester, Wigan has a uniquely advantageous position, which has led to the town becoming a hotspot for new businesses and property developments.
There has been a lot of investment into the town centre in recent years that has influenced the property market, such as the opening of The Grand Arcade shopping centre and the reconstruction of the area surrounding the Wigan Pier. The 10 year rebranding project will see the opening of a hotel, restaurant, café’s, shops and a number of apartments.
The transport links to Wigan make this the perfect home for the professional commuter, with access to the West coast main line train route, making both London and Glasgow only 2 hours away. Two of the North’s main Airports, Manchester and Liverpool are within a 35 minute drive from the town. And plans are currently underway, for continued transport improvements over the next 3 years, with the planned construction of the Leigh-Salford-Manchester Busway, and further Manchester and Liverpool railway line developments.
Purchasing a home in Wigan is notoriously good value for money, with a semi-detached house selling for around £120,757. The housing market is continuing to improve with the average property price in Wigan currently estimated at £145,440, which is a 5% increase on last year’s figures.
