Bury is a large town situated in Greater Manchester, which lies within the county of Lancashire. Originally known for its milling industry it has become increasingly famous for its market and the shopping outlets in the Rock district.
With its gentrification has come an abundance of opportunities for first-time buyers. New and improving schools, increasing political and social diversity, and developing public facilities have all made the area incredibly attractive to the widening middle class.
Much of the more affordable housing consists of post-war red brick terraces which used to house the many mill workers. Prices now vary according to the degree by which they have been gentrified. Many of the more affluent and leafy areas offer larger detached properties which are further from the town-centre. Of course, the nearer you wish to live to the famous and bustling town market, the more prices increase. Many new apartment developments have also sprung up around the Rock district in tandem with the shopping developments.
As a satellite of Manchester, Bury is incredibly popular with commuting families and young professionals, both buying to rent and to live are worthwhile investments.
