Address: 41 smith street, Balderton, Newark, NG24 3BA
Asking Price: £109,950
Property Type: 2 Bed Mid-Terraced
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £500-550pcm
Yield: 6.0%
Comments: Well presented property with low running costs, good property for a couple or family on a budget. Current owners purchased it for £97,000 in June 2016 and aside from a couple of colour changes, it’s not changed since then.

Address: 8 Harrisons Way, Newark, NG24 1NS
Asking Price: £150,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Semi Detached
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 5%
Comments: First purchased brand new in July 2013 for £121k, ideal first time investment as maintenance costs are going to be low and no work is required. It’s a 2 and a half bedroom so is likely to attract a professional couple as that small garden may put families off.

Address: 36 Kingsnorth Close, Newark, NG24 1PS
Asking Price: £134,950
Property Type: 3 Bed Semi Detached
Estate Agent: New home Agents
Condition: Unknown
Rent Range: £575-625pcm (assuming good condition)
Yield: 5.56%
Comments: from looking at floorplans of similar properties, it’s a good sized family home however it’s hard to say how much work is required as it seems to be camera shy. Could be worth though as it’s priced well for a quick sale.

Address: 2 Century St, Newark, NG24 1QP
Asking Price: £125,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Mid-Terrace
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 5.52%
Comments: Popular location for families with Barnby Road Academy just round the corner; an immaculately presented #7 sold in Feb 2018 for £115,000 with a rear extension, i’m not sure why this house is £10k more?

Address: 84 North Gate, Newark, NG24 1HF
Asking Price: £110,000 (Auction Guide Price)
Property Type: 3 Bed Detached House
Estate Agent: J H Walter
Condition: Finishing touches Required
Rent Range: £600-650pcm
Yield: 7.09%
Comments: Love a character property (especially those beams!) however the lack of parking and a car garage as your neighbour may put potential tenants off. Work wise, carpets need laying in a few of the rooms and you’ll need to get an EPC done and hope that it’s at least an ‘E’ before you can let it out.

Address: 13 Newnham Rd, Newark, NG24 1HY
Asking Price: £99,950
Property Type: 2 Bed End Terrace
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles
Condition: Light Work Required
Rent Range: £450-500pcm
Yield: 6%
Comments: Unusual choice to put kitchen units in the dining room but whatever works, I’d loose the units and update that kitchen (eek!) but after that the rest of property can be left alone. Good budget property for first time renters.

Address: Ringrose Close, Newark, NG24 2JL
Property Type: 2 Bed Semi Detached
Asking Price: £135,000
Estate Agent: Purple Bricks
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £500-550pcm
Yield: 4.90%
Comments: Good first time investment due to minimal upkeep although i’m unsure on that asking price but the last 2 bed sold in 2014. We recently let #56 for £550pcm and i don’t feel this is worth any more so if you want more yield you don’t to get negotiating!

Buttercross Best Buy
Address: Flat 2, The Old Chapel, Lovers Lane, NG24 1HU
Property Type: 1 Bed First Floor Flat
Asking Price: £45,000 (Auction Guide Price)
Estate Agent: Auction House
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £400-450pcm
Yield: 12% (not including service charges)

Standard

Here is this weeks round up of new properties for sale in NG24 up to a value of £150,000.

Here’s a quick reference guide to what is on offer, for how much and what you can expect as an investor!

Address: Lilac Cottage, 21 Balderton Lane, Coddington, Newark, NG24 2QD
Asking Price: £150,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Semi-detached Cottage
Estate Agent: Alasdair Morrison
Condition: Unknown
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 4.8%
Comments: Rent range is based on the property being in good condition throughout, the lack of photos makes things a little difficult! Coddington is a desirable area and character properties are often popular, only downside is the EPC rating at an E, it’s legal to rent but tenants don’t like paying over the odds on utilities.

Address: 6 Wood Street, Newark, NG24 1PN
Asking Price: £129,950
Property Type: 3 Bed Mid Terrace
Estate Agent: Richard Watkinson
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 5.31%
Comments: A stones throw from Barnby Road Academy and close to town centre with a lovely kitchen, this house is well presented but a little expensive. The last 3 bed sold in August 2017 for £112,000 with an open kitchen/diner although agreeable the kitchen isn’t as nice!

Address: 36 Cardinal Hinsley Close, Newark, NG24 4NQ
Asking Price: £125,000
Property Type: 2 Bed End of Terrace
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £500-550pcm
Yield: 5.28%
Comments: Low council tax band, reasonable epc rating and an affordable rental price, this property is ideal for a couple or small family and the investor doesn’t need to do any updating (at first glance anyway!). The last 2 bed was a mid terrace and sold for £115,000 in Feb this year however some rooms required new carpets or redecorating.

Buttercross Best Buy Ready to Rent
Address: 9 North Gate, Newark, NG24 1EX
Asking Price: £125,000
Property Type: 3 Bed End of Terrace
Estate Agent: Springbok Properties, Nationwide
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 5.76%
Comments: Very well presented property, especially the lovely kitchen/living room. These properties aren’t overly deep but they are tall with surprisingly spacious bedrooms, we manage number 11 next door which is in a similar condition for £600pcm; the only negative we found was the lack of parking everywhere but you can’t please everyone!

Buttercross Best Buy Fixer Upper
Address: 2 Belvoir Road, Balderton, Newark, NG24 3HQ
Asking Price: £120,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Semi-detached
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Modernisation Required
Rent Range: £575-625pcm (once updated)
Yield: 5.88% (based on £7.5k spend)
Comments: Good one for those that want a fixer upper, this dated house with a fantastic garden needs new a kitchen and bathroom along with flooring and ideally redecorating; the magnolia could stay downstairs to reduce costs but the bedrooms could do with being a little more neutral. Barely anything sells on this street so it’s hard to judge the price?!

Address: 66 Cross Street, Newark, NG24 1NZ
Asking Price: £115,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Mid Terrace
Estate Agent: Purple Bricks
Condition: Would benefit from some modernisation
Rent Range: £450-500pcm
Yield: 5.22%
Comments: This property could be let as it is and expect the current rent range or money could be spent on changing the kitchen and little things like changing the dated gas fire, loosing the dark wood throughout and the floral paper and potentially get £500-525pcm.

Address: 113 Balderton Gate, Newark, NG24 1RY
Asking Price: £115,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Mid Terrace
Estate Agent: Alasdair Morrison
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £425-475pcm
Yield: 4.96%
Comments: Well presented cosy little house close to town centre, these houses are small but perfectly formed! This one is ready to go and would be ideal for a singleton or couple but for something so small, i’m not sure it’s priced right?

So would pick a #FixerUpper or #ReadyToRent? If any of these properties have caught your eye and you’d like to discuss it’s investment potential, call us on 01636 343014, or better still pop in for a chat and a cuppa.

Here is this weeks round up of new properties for sale in NG24 up to a value of £150,000.

Here’s a quick reference guide to what is on offer, for how much and what you can expect as an investor!

Address: 66 Eton Avenue, Newark, NG24 4JF
Asking Price: £150,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Semi-Detached
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 4.8%
Comments: Well presented three bed on the edge of hawtonville, modern throughout so no cosmetic work required for the foreseeable. The last sale was number 60 in June 2017 for £140,000 with some tlc required so this price seems pretty fair.

Address:7 Clayton Close, Newark, NG24 4HN
Asking Price: £135,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Semi-Detached Bungalow
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Unknown
Rent Range: £525-575pcm (if in good condition)
Yield: 5.1%
Comments: Previous sale was in March 2017 for £135,000, the bungalow needed updating throughout so the fact that this is similarly priced would suggest that it’s probably in the same condition and there’s no EPC either to give anything away. We’re always being asked for Bungalows but they’re so rare on the rental market, dare to be different?

Buttercross Best Buy
Address: 23 Birch Road, New Balderton, Newark, NG24 3DB
Asking Price: £130,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Semi-Detached
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 5.31%
Comments: Immaculately presented house with no work required at all thanks to the fantastic job the vendors have done, properties around balderton lake are desirable and would an ideal first time investment. EPC and council tax are reasonable but not the cheapest so consider that for your prospective tenants.

Address: 20 Wright Street, Newark, NG24 1PJ
Asking Price: £117,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Mid Terrace
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £500-550pcm
Yield: 5.64%
Comments: Another great looking property with a fair price tag, the last sale two sales on the street last year were for £99,000 in good condition and £80,000 that needed some tlc. Terrace streets aren’t for all tenants due to potential noisy neighbours and lack of parking, no-one wants to carry there shopping from the other end of the street!

Address: 38 Bowbridge Road, Newark, NG24 4BZ
Asking Price: £110,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Mid Terrace
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Already Tenanted
Rent Range: Currently paying £425pcm – would suggest £450-500pcm
Yield: currently 4.64% – could obtain 5.45% if £500pcm is achieved
Comments: Small but perfectly formed AND already tenanted, personally i think the current rent is too low but you have to consider that putting the rent up may cause the current tenants to leave so is it worth the void period?

Here is this weeks round up of new properties for sale in NG24 up to a value of £150,000.

Here’s a quick reference guide to what is on offer, for how much and what you can expect as an investor!

Address: 7 Belvoir Crescent, Newark, NG24 4DW
Asking Price: £150,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Semi-Detached
Estate Agent: Richard Watkinson
Condition: Some work required – kitchen needs updating
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 5%
Comments: Purchased in 2008 for £125,000, this 3 bed was one of the highest sales at the time and even though it hasn’t changed since then, it would appear to be overpriced looking at other previous sales. Number 8 sold in Aug 2017 following a complete renovation for £132,000 and was the highest sale on the street so far!

Address: Wolfit Avenue, Balderton, Newark, NG24 3PH
Asking Price: £142,500
Property Type: 3 Bed Semi-Detached
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Some work required – kitchen needs updating + possibly bathroom.
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 5.26%
Comments: Good sized family home in a good location, the kitchen is a great size but really needs updating and i’m to hazard a guess and say that the camera shy bathroom is also likely to need an update. Once these improvements have been done, dependant on the level you could look at £625-675pcm.

Address: 29 Centenary Close, Balderton, Newark, NG24 3FE
Asking Price: £129,950
Property Type: 2 Bed Mid Terrace
Estate Agent: Now Homes
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 5.31%
Comments: The last 2 bed on the street sold for £115,000 after being renovated throughout in June 2017 with off street parking and was a semi rather than mid terrace; the last 3 bed sold was another semi in Sept in a similar condition to 29 for £133,000 with off street parking, why is this so much?

Address: Bowbridge Road, Newark, NG24 4BZ
Asking Price: £110,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Mid Terrace
Estate Agent: Whitegates
Condition: Already Tenanted
Rent Range: £475pcm currently obtained
Yield: 5.18%
Comments: Investment property so no need to worry about void periods, it appears to be a small property in an average condition so rental price seems fair. There’s currently no epc so if it comes back below an E and the tenant isn’t in a fixed term, then you need to spend to money to get it there or you can be fined.

Buttercross Best Buy
Address: Parsons Close, Fernwood, Newark, NG24 3UX
Asking Price: £127,500
Property Type: 2 Bed Mid Terrace
Estate Agent: Now Homes
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 5.65%
Comments: Ideal first time investment, modern house with no initial work required in a popular area so it shouldn’t take long to get a tenant, perfect for keeping those void periods as short as possible. Last sale was on Dovedale Terrace on January 2017 for £115,500, the exact same layout and condition but no garage.

Asking Price: £140,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Semi-detached
Estate Agent: Now Homes
Condition: Minor Work Required
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 4.93%
Comments: Located in Hawtonville, this property is a generally good condition with, my only gripe is the over bed storage in two of the bedrooms as they restrict the layout of a room and makes it difficult for tenants to accommodate their own furniture.

EYES ON…THIS WEEKS INVESTMENT PROPERTIES IN NEWARK!!!

Standard

Here is this weeks round up of new properties for sale in NG24, up to a value of £150,000.

As ever, here’s a quick reference guide to what is on offer, for how much and what you can expect as an investor.

Address: Heron Way, Balderton, NG24 3DD
Asking Price: £150,000
Property Type: 3 Bed semi detached
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles
Condition: Some updating required
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 5%
Comments: Lovely property in a great location with those magic 3 bedrooms, it would make a fantastic rental property with it’s low council tax banding and EPC ‘B’ making it cheap to run and appealing for tenants to run. Sadly the price is just too high for it to get a half decent yield, and that’s before you’ve updated the bedrooms and decorated the kitchen as the wallpaper isn’t overly easy on the eyes.

Address: The Tankard Building, Warwick Brewery, Newark, NG24 1TX
Asking Price: £140,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom first floor apartment
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Ground Rent: £100pa
Maintenance Charges: £1,131.74pa
Condition: Spotless although EPC too low – work required
Rent Range: £645-695pcm
Yield: 5.9%
Comments: Great character property with modern finishes, Warwick Brewery is an extremely popular development down to it’s location, finish and parking which is why you can charge nearly £700pcm for a 2 bedroom apartment. Sadly this apartment’s EPC rating is ‘F’ which could explain why the vendor is selling it as it was a rental property and as of April 2018, you won’t be able to start a new tenancy.

Address: 153 BarnbyGate, Newark, NG24 1RJ
Asking Price: £129,950
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Cottage
Estate Agent: Now Homes
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 5.54%
Comments: Such a quirky little property just a short walk to town and Barnby Road Academy, perfect for a couple or small family that love a bit of character and fancy something a bit different. The EPC is pending so be sure to find out whether any work is required to get it up to date for April.

Address: George Street, Newark, NG24 1LU
Asking Price: £125,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom end of terrace
Estate Agent: William H Brown
Condition: Light redecoration
Rent Range: £500-550pcm
Yield: 5.28%
Comments: Ideally located between town centre and North Gate station, within in 1/4 mile of the property in the last 6 months, 3 terraces of a similar style sold for £100k, £110k and £116k (3 bed) so this could be a little high but it’s your call. Property itself is pretty well presented, the busy wallpaper in the kitchen matched with the colourful tiles may be a bit much for some and the dark wood doors can be cheaply replaced.

Address: 8 Bridge Cottages, Newark, NG24 2ND
Asking Price: £112,500
Property Type: 2 Bedroom mid terrace
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £450-500pcm
Yield: 5.33%
Comments: Perfect budget friendly property in close proximity to Barnby Road Academy, ideal for a young family. There is plenty you could do this property to make it a £600pcm investment but there is the option to keep it as it is if you don’t want to spend money straight away; just hang on until the EPC comes through as you may be spending more than you expected!

Buttercross Best Buy
Address: Newnham Rd, Newark NG24 1HY
Guide Price: £35,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom end of terrace
Estate Agent: SDL Auctions
Condition: Complete renovation required.
Rent Range: £525-575pcm (once renovated)
Yield: 10.61% (based on £30k spend)
Comments: Fantastic opportunity but not for the faint of heart! Perfect for an investor or first time buyer that doesn’t mind getting their hands dirty, quite a busy and tight street but it’s very close to the town centre, industrial estate and great access to the A1/A46. So will you be heading to the auction house?

Address: Chain Lane, Newark, NG24 1AU
Guide Price: £129,500
Property Type: 2 Bedroom second floor apartment
Estate Agent: Gascoines
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 5.31%
Comments: An unusual opportunity for a generous two bedroom apartment smack bang in the middle of town, ideal mid week home for a commuter. There’s a contemporary but smaller apartment currently on the market for £575pcm above Natwest Bank, this property has oodles of space and is still modern but more of a cosy finish thanks to the beams and colour scheme.

Address: 7 Century Street, Newark, NG24 1QP
Guide Price: £115,000
Property Type: 2 Bed mid terrace
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £500-550pcm
Yield: 5.74%
Comments: Immaculately presented home that is sure to please a lot of tenants, purchase in January for £90k, this property has been completely renovated from top to bottom aside from the kitchen units and tops and is unrecognisable in comparison. Only downside is that it’s an adopted road so the council won’t be maintaining it but if you can look past that it’s a great first time investment.

Condition: Some modernisation required.
Rent Range: £550-600pcm (once completed)
Yield: 4.97%
Comments: Nestled within Hawtonville,this 3 bed semi is crying out for an update, no bathroom or bedroom photos suggests it’s as dated or worse than the living room. Considering how much needs to be spent on this, the price is a way off, a pristine 4 bed sold for £142,500 in December.

Comments: Last sold in 2012 for £112,000 in the exact same condition, although it’s more like a 3 bed and box room, the size and decor still makes it appealing to families and it’s ideally located between the A1/A46 and the town centre.

Type: 2 Bed Semi-Detached
Asking Price: £125,000
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles
Condition: Some Modernisation Required
Rent Range: £550-600pcm (once renovated)
Yield: 5.76%
Comments: Located in the popular lakeside development, one for an investor that fancies a fixer upper, the cupboard doors need changing in the kitchen, the awful fitted wardrobes have to go and who knows what surprise lies in the bathroom!

EYES ON….The Investment Property of The Week in Newark!!

Standard

Here’s my investment property of the week in NG24 for less than £150,000

Address: 20 Shakespeare Street, Balderton, Newark, NG24 3AN
Type: 3 Bed Semi Detached House
Asking Price: £139,950
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Requires renovation
Rent Range: £625-675pcm (once completed)
Yield: 5.8%

Brilliant property in a great location with so much potential, perfect as a buy to let or first time buy as long as you don’t mind getting your hands dirty! Tenants love a spacious house in the right location but they don’t like old and outdated so bare that in mind, good tenants rent good houses.

Wondering where to start? Well, the kitchen and bathroom are a MUST, the carpeted bath panel and tiles from yesteryear may have been of their time but they certainly aren’t now, a simple white suite with fab floor tiles and neutral walls will attract tenants or potential buyers if you’re wanting a fix and sell; if you have the budget, floor to ceiling tiles and a good quality shower will add the wow factor. As for the kitchen, i’m not sure they thought the layout through when they first built it, the pantry/utility is a great bonus but next to no worktops will certainly put families off, where are you meant to put anything?! Decoration aside, if the radiator was moved or even removed entirely, units and a worktop could be installed adding much needed storage and space. As for the rest of the house, the bedrooms are bearable in magnolia and could be left alone, the only other room that really needs updating is the lounge, get rid of the pink carpet and green walls and go for a simple mocha shaded carpet and neutral walls but ideally NOT magnolia!

The last property on Shakespeare Street sold in Feb 2017 for £134,450 with an appealing modern interior, high gloss kitchen and plenty of off street parking along with a well presented rear garden and just 2 bedrooms. We let a 3 bedroom semi-detached property on Shakespeare Street earlier this year for £650pcm, it was in a similar condition to this property initial but after hours of effort from the landlord, it was let with a fabulous high gloss kitchen, stunning bathroom and neutral carpets and decor throughout.

This will be a fantastic investment to get stuck into, at around £15,000 to get the property to a high standard, it’s going to take time to make it back but £675pcm will help you get there in no time! We had a lot of interest in the last property and we actually let it mid refurb, the right tenant will see the potential and jump at the opportunity to live in a high end family home. Let us know how you get on!
