Didsbury is Manchester's most expensive suburb. But it is still attracting first time buyers.

Didsbury is attracting more than double the national average proportion of first time buyers, despite surging property prices in the suburb.

The average house in this popular suburb will set you back around £326,995 according to Zoopla, making it one of the most exclusive areas of Greater Manchester.

But a study by estate agents Bridgfords suggests that rocketing prices aren’t discouraging first time buyers.

The report states that 42% of all sales in Didsbury were to first time buyers, more than double the national average which sits at 18%.

Many young families and professionals are falling in love with this quirky suburb, that offers great commuter routes into Manchester and other surrounding cities. Customers who have purchased property in Didsbury through Bridgfords often express their delight at living there and feel very lucky to live in such a beautiful place.

Didsbury is a friendly and uplifting place to live. Even though the city centre is only 20 minutes away on the tram, there is a real village like, community feel to the area. It is a great place to go running, and there are lots of well-maintained green spaces just a short walk away, like the Mersey Valley, Fletcher Moss Botanical Gardens and Didsbury Park.

Didsbury is geographically small, with many residents who have lived in Didsbury all their lives now wanting to raise their families in larger homes. They sell at such a premium because demand is so high, especially within the catchment of the most sought after primary schools in the village.
