Buyers to put work first when choosing housing for sale in Manchester?

People viewing property for sale in Manchester are likely to consider proximity to their workplace when choosing their ideal property, research has found.

A third of Brits put closeness to their jobs first when it comes to moving house, according to Santander.

Research by the bank found that potential homeowners would pay an average of £5,354 more for their new home if they had the advantage of living closer to the office.

Space was also an important factor, with 29 per cent focusing on size while househunting.

Houses for sale in Manchester that offer some extra room could see buyers paying an additional £10,212, the study suggests.

Transport links were favoured by 21 per cent of respondents, while 18 per cent prioritised a space for their car or a garage.

In addition, 18 per cent look for a property with a south-facing garden when choosing a new home.

Phil Cliff, director of Santander Mortgages, commented: "Some of the most in-demand privileges, however, such as close proximity to the city or good schools, come with an expensive price tag."ADNFCR-1222-ID-800609368-ADNFCR
