When it comes to house buying over the last year, Stockport has seen a huge surge in people interested in the geographical area for first times buying, second home buying and upsizing from existing homeowners.
The borough of Stockport and its villages have long been a sought after postcode for neighbouring Manchester and Cheshire movers, but the biggest increase in interest in the last year has seen families as far away as Birmingham and London have advanced interest in the area on both sides of the budget scale.
The Stockport Appeal
Estate agents Stockport will tell you that there is something for every type of homebuyer in the area, and it is certainly true.
From stunning period properties such as Victorian terraces and grand detached residences to coach houses and cottages, Stockport is a dream atmosphere for those city dwellers looking to find something much more relaxing – which appealed greatly to those London dwellers looking to escape to a cheaper and more natural climate.
For relocating families, the areas of the Heaton’s, Cheadle and Bramhall have fallen into the most popular forever homes. Part of this falls into the very picturesque and friendly environment of quality shops, boutiques and upmarket bars and restaurants.
Stockport’s £1 billion town investment is modernising and improving Stockport town centre to suit today’s shoppers which will bring an added attraction for bigger businesses into the area.
This will make every kind of brand name available to people living in the more rural areas of Stockport at just a short drive or walks away from their homes. With Manchester the neighbouring area and even London is within two hours reach, the appeal is still very high for those who want to mix their leisure home with close enough big city experience. For those choosing not to drive into the city’s, the excellent rail network has Stockport station on the mainline between Manchester and London, making access to Manchester Piccadilly Station and London Euston station as easy as boarding a train.
Perfect for Family
The big appeal when it comes to Stockport is that it is the perfect area to raise a family, which is why those looking to upscale, those looking to relocate and those first-time buyers are so keen to get property in the area. These are not families looking for a home for a few years – these are families looking to stay forever.
With some of the nation’s best schools rated by Ofsted and beautiful scenery around the area such as Lyme Park and access to the Peak District, it is no wonder why it is the number one destination for those looking to buy property in Stockport.
