Lights, Camera, Action!

The team at We Let Properties were delighted recently to receive a call from a USA tv production company who were in preparation for filming an episode of hit US show `House Hunters International` that would involve a young couple moving from the States to Manchester City Centre!

They approached us after searching the internet for a Manchester based letting agent and finding our reviews on allAgents (by the way, did we mention that We Let Properties are ranked no 1 letting agent in Manchester from customer reviews?!!) and asked if we would be able to assist the American couple in their search for a new home. Well obviously as finding people new homes is our speciality, there was no hesitation on our part and we set about on the search!

The couple were moving to Manchester to study so wanted to be located close to Manchester University, whilst they were also interested in being close to the City Centre. We were given a budget and some requirements to work with; two bedrooms, outdoor space and close to good transport links. We whittled it down to three fantastic properties; a modern two bedroom, two bathroom apartment in Albion Works – a popular development in the well regenerated Ancoats area of the City Centre, an excellent penthouse two bedroom apartment in The Apex – located on Withington Road in Whalley Range this area is very popular with students and professionals alike benefitting from excellent public transport links to the City Centre and the local conveniences of Whalley Range and Chorlton. Then thirdly, a great old fashioned two up, two down terraced house in Rusholme, again a very popular area for students due to the vicinity and transport to the University.

Filming day came, Wayne slapped on his make up, and the viewings took place on all three properties. As well as showing the properties, Wayne also took on the presenter role sharing all his knowledge and expertise about the lettings industry and the rental market. After spending some time in each property, and a little mooch around each local vicinity, the decision was made and the Rusholme house was the chosen property. The couple loved the space the house offered and the back garden, full of seasonal flowers, closed the deal!

The show is due to air around Christmas time in the US, but hopefully there'll be a way to watch on line as well for us Brits. We'll definitely keep you up to date! In the meantime, I'm told Wayne is contactable only via his agent...unless you're a landlord of course...then you can call him any time!
