Figures show that last month, the year-on-year house price for Manchester increased by a huge 8.4%, thanks to a large stream of transactions.

Insight Director at Hometrack, Richard Donnell, said: ‘we anticipate prices will continue to increase over 2017 as households take advantage of record-low mortgage rates and an improving economic outlook.’
