Stretford, the part of Greater Manchester that is home to both Manchester United football club and Lancashire County Cricket club is currently enjoying a bit of a facelift. The well know A56 Chester Road that runs from Sale through to the city centre is being repaired and the local Stretford shopping centre is also being beautified.
With 3 bedroom terraced houses now selling for upwards of £200,000 (see https://www.onthemarket.com/for-sale/property/stretford/), many people are looking to buy a house in this area. Mortgage brokers are much sought after and quality brokers like Andy Butterworth and Alan Dee are busily sorting out mortgages for all types of Stretford property.
Because the houses in Stretford are a mix, the types of mortgages available are also a mix. First time buyers, buy to let, lease to buy, remortgages and bad credit mortgages all rank highly in Stretford.
Ideally placed between Chorlton, Sale, Urmston and Manchester city centre, Stretford is the cheapest of these areas to buy a house. Chorlton is super expensive, closely followed by Sale and then Urmston. For people looking to buy a house in Stretford, you'll save yourself over £100k by relocating here rather than Chorlton.
