Why move to Longton?

Longton, a large town in Stoke on Trent, is home to a wealth of business and enterprise including a whole host of distribution centres; Amazon, Sainsbury’s, Pets at Home, Dunelm, and Screw Fix amongst others, which has created a high demand for rental properties.

 

Schools

If you are moving into the area and have school aged children, Ormiston Meridian Academy on Sandon Road and Trentham Academy in Trentham are both very highly regarded.

 

Hospitality

In terms of leisure and socialising, there really is something for everyone in Longton and neighbouring towns. Hanley and Newcastle are great for a big night out but if you prefer to stay closer to home, why not take advantage of one of the many great local Indian restaurants; Milon Restaurant on Market Street, Thalii on Kingsway or Saghir Express on The Strand.

 

Local market

The Your Move Longton branch manage a mix of properties starting with modest flats from £425-£450pcm to large family homes priced at around £1100pcm. The rental market is strong with high demand for quality housing. Properties don’t stay empty for long which is reassuring to know if you are looking for an investment property.

In terms of sales, the market is fast moving with contracts being exchanged in as little as 6 weeks. If you are looking for a renovation project you will not be disappointed as there is a lot of choice, typically 2 bedroom terraced properties start from as little as £40-50,000. Once renovated the Longton branch would be happy to re-sell or manage the property if you decided to let it. Alternatively, for owner – occupier accommodation, the branch has a vast array of properties up to large executive detached houses.
