Situated in the very desirable West Court in Didsbury Gate, this two double bedroom apartment is on the market with Bridgfords for £325,000. These properties have increased in value substantially over the last few years and achieve rents of approximately £1,150 pcm.

I read an article this week which I wanted to share with you as it highlighted the most lucrative postcodes for buy to let landlords in Manchester, with some even offering the best yields in the country.
M14 offered the 5th highest yields in the country closely at 10.1% followed by M19 which covers parts of Levenshulme, Burnage, Heaton Mersey, Heaton Chapel and Reddish which made it into the top 10 with an average yield of 8.6%.
