With a perfect mix of affordable housing and good transport links, Bolton could be the perfect place to find your next investment.
For property investors, Bolton's appeal is obvious. Employment has reached an all-time high, its population is projected to grow by 16,600 over the next five years, and the town is now benefiting from a swarm of regeneration schemes. Moreover, the ripple effect from Manchester's own buoyant property market has helped to ensure a healthy and sustained capital appreciation.
Bolton has many strengths of its own and its appeal is by no means solely reliant on its proximity to Manchester. It has secured close to £1 billion of inward investment in recent years and hundreds of millions more are now being allocated to important regeneration programmes in industrial parks and the town centre.
Don't take our word on how great Bolton is. The figures certainly communicate the lucrative potential to be gained from the property market in such a great location.
