Finding a place to call home in Media City Manchester

The development of Media City Manchester has made Salford and Manchester two of the most popular places to live in the UK.

Media City Manchester has been designed to provide a purpose-built home for creative and digital businesses. The first phase, spread over 36 acres, was completed in 2011 but there is the potential to use up to 200 acres of land over the next decade.

With a wealth of exciting employment options, restaurants, shops and entertainment outlets, Media City Manchester is a wonderful place to live, and an amazing hub for students and young professionals.

The idea to create Media City begun when the BBC signalled its intention to move out of London in 2004, and the Salford Quays site was chosen in 2006.

The BBC has relocated much of its broadcasting services; Children’s, BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC Research and BBC Sport. ITV Granada followed in March 2013, with the first phase of its move to Media City from their historical city centre site in Manchester.

Mistoria Estate Agents has a fantastic selection of properties right on Media City Manchester’s doorstep, and we are committed to helping you find a great place to live.

We’ll then take you on some viewings, and you simply pick the place you want to live! We’ll charge an administration fee of £100, payable when booking the property. Then before you move in we require a deposit for every tenany, which is equal to £200. It really is as straight forward as that!

For more information or help please call us on – 0800 500 3015 or send an email to – info@mistorialettings.com and we’ll do everything we can to assist you.

Number of people looking for a house to rent reaches all time high

The UK’s rental market has gone from strength to strength in recent years as demand for a house to rent is ever increasing. More than 8.5 million people in England now rent, and that number is constantly growing. In turn the number of people who own their own property has reached its lowest point in many years and it seems we are now ‘Generation Rent’.

New figures from the Office for National Statistics show a record number of people now forced to rent as levels of home ownership have slumped to just 64 per cent, its lowest levels since the mid-1980s when Margaret Thatcher declared her ambition to see more people able to buy a house.

Experts put it down to first-time buyers struggling to get on the ladder as soaring prices have far outpaced incomes. The Office for National Statistics say high house prices, low wage growth and tighter rules imposed by lenders are to blame for the number of people living in and looking for a house to rent.

As a prospective tenant you must realise that renting holds many benefits

Renting allows you to choose where you like to live and lets you move freely. In most cases you can break a rental contract after 6 months, allowing you to move to a new location or type of house. Or if you are hoping to buy in the future it provides you with the chance to test out a new location before you commit to buying in the area.

In addition as a renter/ tenant you are not going to fall foul of any housing market related conditions. You will of course have to pay rent but you’re not tied into monthly mortgage repayments and therefore cannot fall into negative equity.

Another thing we find that our tenants enjoy, is not being responsible for the maintenance of the property, therefore as a renter there are no costs to pay for decoration or upkeep.
