Homebuyers are fighting over this ex-council house in Burnage - highlighting how Manchester's crazy property market shows no signs of slowing down just yet.

Despite the stamp duty holiday being well and truly over, some Greater Manchester hotspots are still proving to be competitive.

The three-bedroom semi-detached house on Southbank Road is being marketed by Purplebricks for £220,000.

Within 48 hours of the listing going online, the estate agents received over 100 viewing requests, even though the listing said that viewings wouldn't start until the end of the month.

They also had 10 offers - which were all made without any of the potential buyers stepping foot in the property.

The home, close to Withington and Didsbury, is well-presented throughout.

The contemporary living space

The estate agents describe it as 'show home standard', meaning residents could move straight in as it's pretty much a blank canvas.

It has a large lounge/diner with a feature fireplace, and patio doors that lead out into the huge back garden, that comes with a decking area.

On the ground floor is the bathroom, with the kitchen to the front, boasting a breakfast bar as another eating space.

Upstairs, there are three good-sized bedrooms, with the third currently being used as an office.

Local property expert for Purplebricks, Gareth Yates, says the shortage of homes in the region has been driving up prices, combined with homebuyers wanting to move before Christmas.

He said: "The big driver at the moment is lack of stock which is driving up prices.

"We sold one on this road earlier this year for around the £200k mark, which just shows how much prices have moved on.

"In July I had a two-bed at £280k sell in just two weeks and for way over the asking price.

"For me, the lack of choice and low interest rates are creating such high demand for properties like this one. Many buyers are also hoping they can be in their new home by Christmas so want act quickly.”
