Are you interested in moving to Oldham in 2023? Our Oldham manager Tony Boardman has revealed the top three property hotspots within the area for those looking to buy this year.

“The housing market in Oldham is performing strongly and prices are continuing to remain stable after huge increases over the past two years. We’re seeing huge amounts of interest in the properties we market, with many receiving multiple offers. First-time buyer activity in Oldham is high, as is interest from investors, and both of these factors are key to the town’s continued property market growth.

“Investment in Oldham is also continuing at pace, which is helping to boost the area further and positively impacting the town’s housing market. There are major redevelopment works taking place at Spindles Town Square Shopping Centre, which will see it changing from being purely retail-focused to a place for the whole community to use. There will be better shops, new office spaces and an improved leisure and entertainment offer, which will help to transform the town centre.

“Oldham’s Old Library is also being restored and it’s set to become the new home for the Oldham Theatre Workshop, as well as having a gallery and flexible spaces, creating a new cultural quarter in the town.

“Now is a great time to buy in Oldham, and these are my top three property hotspots here.”
