Buttercross Best Buy
Address: 70 Milner Street, Newark, NG24 4AA
Asking Price: £135,000
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Complete Refurbishment Required.
Rent Range: £600-650pcm (Once refurbished)
Yield: 5.77%
Comments: Complete overhaul required, I know retro is in at the moment but I’m not convinced! There’s no photo of the bathroom but judging the rest of the house I think it’s safe to say it will be bad. Most expensive terrace on the street fetched £158,500 in June this year (Number 8).

Address: Goldstraw Lane, Fernwood, NG24 3FF
Asking Price: £114,950
Service/Maintenance Charge: approx £1,317.12 PA
Ground Rent: £125 PA
Estate Agent: Martin and Co
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 6.18% (inc GR and Serv Charge)
Comments: Modern, low maintenance property making it ideal for a first time investor, 3 bed apartments aren’t overly common on the rental market so desirability is difficult to judge. The owners have cleverly used one of the bedrooms as a dining room to make extra living space, certainly worth advising tenants.

Address: 24 Birch Road, New Balderton, NG24 3DB
Asking Price: £135,000
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Light Refurbishment Required.
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 5.55%
Comments: Good area for families and couples, close to the A1 and outstanding schools. Price is fair for the work required, that kitchen has got to go, the gardens need some tlc and the master needs a carpet..also I’m not sure anyone has ever said “nice mismatch conservatory tiles”…

Asking Price: £89,950
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Cosmetic Work Required.
Rent Range: £500-525pcm

Comments: Kitchen is good and it just needs a lick of paint and the curtains getting rid of. Maybe a new bathroom? 86 Grange Road sold for £87,000 in June this year.
