The cheapest home in Bolton has been revealed.

A Bradshawgate flat in Bolton town centre is up for sale for just £20,000 for a single buyer — eight times cheaper than the average price of a house in the town.

The property, put on the market by estate agents Purple Bricks, boasts a fully furnished en-suite studio at 85-93 Bradshawgate in the BL1 area. The flat is aimed at Bolton University students.

The building is situated at the junction of Worsley Road and Great Moor Street, near the town centre. The flat is advertised on the Right Move website as a “great investment opportunity within a well managed development located in Bolton town centre”.

Other properties nearby have recently gone for far higher prices despite the marketing towards students, including a similar student flat in the same building which sold for double last year, going for £40,000.

Another Bradshawgate apartment close by sold for more than three times the amount £70,000 in 2017.

The Bolton News:

The flat comes in at 12 times cheaper than the average England house price of £243,639.

In comparison to the rest of Bolton, the cheap and cheerful flat undercuts the average price by more than £150,000.

The overall average for houses in Bolton stands at £160,433, though most of last year's property sales in the borough involved terraced houses sold for £105,777 on average.

Semi-detached houses jumped to £158,402, while detached properties fetched up to £289,856.

The Bolton News:

Houses in Bolton are cheaper than Heaton, Lostock and Bromley Cross, but have risen by seven per cent in the last three years.
