I’ve recently been in the Rawtenstall area of Rossendale Valley. The Rossendale Valley is an area of Lancashire that contains the towns of Rawtenstall, Bacup and Haslingden. It’s quite well connected from a travel point of view – from Haslingden you can take the Grane Road across to the M65 and Blackburn, and from Rawtenstall you can take the M66 to Bury and then pick up the M66 / M60 motorway network that can take you into Manchester and Bolton.
House prices and the availability of mortgage brokers vary considerably: on the Haslingden border is Helmshore which itself starts going upmarket. Continue on through Helmshore and you’ll get to Ramsbottom and Holcombe Village which have some of the most exclusive houses in the Rossendale Valley.
One of the estate agents currently doing businesses in buying and selling homes in Rossendale is Farrow and Farrow (https://www.farrowfarrow.co.uk/) who have a wide selection of property available throughout the Rossendale area.
For those not wishing to buy a house, renting is a big option these days and there are lots of properties available throughout Rossendale to let.
From experience once you’ve chosen where you want to live the next step is to find a mortgage broker who can get you the mortgage you want. Many people don’t put that much effort into this, but getting the right mortgage advisor who can broker you a mortgage deal can save you thousands of pounds. Personal recommendation speaks a lot and without hesitation my recommendation for people looking for a mortgage would be http://manchestermortgages.co.uk/. Based near the Rossendale Valley they have never let me down and have been brokering mortgages throughout Manchester for over 20 years.
It’s not just house buyers who use mortgage brokers either. People looking to remortgage, buy to let or let to buy will also benefit from using a good broker.
