When it comes to property, the old adage is location, location, location. For many though, size is important. We take a look at what areas give you more for your money in terms of house size.

Homes in Trafford can cost twice as much as in other areas of Cheshire, despite being the same size, according to Office for National Statistics (ONS) analysis of 2016 property prices.

In 2016 the average cost of property sold in England and Wales was £2,395 per square metre with the highest price per square metre registered in Kensington and Chelsea at a staggering £19,439.

Areas of Cheshire and Manchester have some of the most expensive property areas in the North of England. Trafford, which includes property hotspots such as Altrincham and Hale, led the way at £2,557 per square metre and was the only local authority in the North West to register above the national average.

Stockport, which also includes areas such as Marple and Cheadle is now more expensive on average than the centre of Manchester and Salford, with a price per square metre at £2,158.

The administrative counties of Cheshire West and Chester and Cheshire East are large and diverse and it could be argued that certain locations within these are a lot higher than the regional average. In Cheshire West, the Chester area is likely to be one of the highest in the North West as would locations such as Alderley Edge and Wilmslow in Cheshire East.

If you’re looking for size rather than location, then Tameside, Halton and St Helens offers the best value for money in the Cheshire area.
