Are you looking to find out the best time to sell your property or buy a home in Tameside? The housing market is known to change over time, but by basing your choice to sell on the state of the national market, you could be missing a trick. Even drilling down to Tameside doesn't give a full picture. Instead the best view of the local housing market comes down to the postcode area.

We looked at data from Rightmove based on the postcodes M34, M43, OL7, OL6, SK14, SK15 and SK5 to see the performance of the housing market in those areas, but one of the biggest findings was that the housing market varies still when we drill down even further. For example, there were far more properties for sale in Q1 2018 in M34 5, than in M34 6. To give you a full view of the property market in your area, we have created this report of each individual postcode that we cover. This data covers Q1 of 2018 and is obtained from Rightmove.
