      House prices remain relatively high across Greater Manchester as the average cost of a house continues to rise. Even as prices begin to drop, demand continues to outstrip supply, making it more difficult to find a reasonably priced home.

      Property in Greater Manchester had an overall median price of £251,168 over the past year, which was 13 per cent higher than the peak in 2020. But despite the upward trend, there are luckily certain parts of the region where you can expect to buy a house for much less than average.

      At the lower end of the local property market, in the Bolton, Oldham, Rochdale and Wigan districts, there are certain areas where houses are much more affordable. By contrast, the Trafford, Bury and Stockport districts are much more expensive and you are less likely to find a bargain here.
