Buying a new home can be a stressful but exciting time - and according to Zoopla's House Price Index stats, homes in Oldham are in extremely high demand, despite the cost-of-living crisis.

Those interested in making the move or buying their first ever home flock to the property website in search of the best deal, and Zoopla records the homes with the most eyes and views every 30 days.

So here are the top 10 most viewed properties in Oldham within the last month, according to Zoopla.

Two-bed semi-detached home, Lichens Crescent - £90,000

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the most viewed property on this list is the cheapest with offers starting from £90,000 for this two-bed, one-bath home near Oldham town centre.

It boasts a spacious rear garden and two double bedrooms, while the M60 motorway and two local primary schools are in close proximity.

However, the listing says it is only suitable for cash buy to let only due to a 51-year lease and Japanese knotweed growing in the back garden.

Three-bed detached house, Cyprus Close - £250,000

Coming in as the second most viewed property, and the most expensive three-bed property on the list, is this large spacious home on a quiet cul-de-sac on Cyprus Close.

The property is less of a project compared to Lichens Crescent as it has modern interior running throughout and fancy French doors which open onto the garden.

Plus it comes with a modern fitted kitchen, a garden space at the front and the back, off-road parking and a single garage.

Upstairs, it has three substantial bedrooms, a family bathroom and a large en-suite while two primary schools are less than half a mile away, so ideal for a growing family.

Three-bed terraced house, Lychgate Court - £130,000

The listing for this property says it is "flooded" with great natural lighting - and it is certainly spacious enough with three decent-sized bedrooms.

The home is generously sized with an open-plan floor space downstairs and has its own private garden and off-road parking.

Again, it's less than half a mile away from two primary schools and just over a mile away from Mossley train station.

Two-bedroom terraced house, Coalshaw Green Road, Chadderton - £92,500

The fourth most viewed property is this home in Chadderton which is reasonably sized and situated in an ideal location.

The images show it does need a little bit of work, but if you're up for the challenge it certainly has potential with two well-sized bedrooms, a cosy lounge, a fitted kitchen and garden space at the front and back.

Three-bedroom terraced home, Carnation Road - £140,000

This property is stunning for the price with an impressive south-facing garden, driveway and close proximity to some of Oldham's beauty spots.

If you're an avid walker, this home is a stone's throw away from Hartshead Pike trails - 0.1 miles- while St Hugh's CofE Primary School and Alt Academy sits at just 0.3 miles away. 

It's primed for first-time buyers and investors but would suit a growing family who loves the outdoors.

Three-bedroom semi-detached house, Broadway, Chadderton - £199,950

This is a huge property, comprised of three bedrooms, one bathroom, a rather larger rear garden with a detached garage and a large front garden, too.

Inside the 725-square feet home is a porch, entrance hall, large lounge, modern fitted kitchen, three bedrooms and a shower room - but no bath.

Still, you'd be local to the Kingfisher Special School and Yew Tree Community School which are both less than a mile away.

Three-bed townhouse, Penrith Avenue - £165,000

This is the only townhouse to make the list, and it's clear to see why.

For a townhouse, it's deceptively large and is situated at the end on a quiet cul-de-sac with two gardens to boot.

It has been newly refurbished with a modern, clean interior running all the way through and has an open-plan lounge and dining area.

Oldham Hulme Grammer School and Lyndhurst Primary School are both approximately 0.3 miles away, so suitable for families with children of all ages.

Three-bed end terraced house, Briton Street, Royton - £150,000

The eighth most popular property up for grabs is this corner plot home in Royton which is also positioned within close proximity to schools, Oldham hospital and transport links.

It looks bright and spacious inside with three decent-sized bedrooms and a modern family bathroom upstairs.

Outside, it has gardens to the front and the rear as well as gated off-road parking.

Three-bed semi-detached house, Old Lane, Chadderton - £180,000

If you're looking for cosy and cute, this property in Chadderton might just be the one for you.

It has three bedrooms, with one quite on the small side, but a beautiful back garden with an enclosed patio area, flower borders and a timber store shed.

It also comes with a driveway and sits within a popular residential area, being just a short drive away from Chadderton and Oldham town centre as well as motorway links.

The Oldham Times: Castleton Street, image by Zoopla.Castleton Street, image by Zoopla.

Five-bed detached house, Castleton Street - £325,000

Coming in at 10th on the list is this humungous five-bed house on Castleton Street.

It spans over three floors on a generous corner plot and boasts over 20 windows, a double driveway, two bathrooms plus a downstairs toilet and en-suite.

It has a huge rear garden and rooftop terrace overlooking spectacular views across Chadderton, Royton and the Pennine Moorlands.

The listing says the top floor feels isolated from the rest of the property, so perfect for growing teenagers or guests.

It's bright and airy inside and has been decorated to pristine 'move-in' condition.

It's also less than a minute walk away from Freehold Metrolink Station and under 0.3 miles away from two local schools.
