Buttercross Best Buy
Address: 4 Hardwick Avenue, Newark. NG24 4AW
Asking Price: £135,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Terraced House
Estate Agent: Whitegates
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 5.78%
Comments: Whitegates have said £500pcm for this property, okay it has wooden single glazed windows and solid brick walls BUT it is EPC rated ‘D’ so it’s legal to rent, so why SO low? Martin and Co let the house next door for £650pcm with double glazed windows but the same EPC rating, i’d want to know why £500pcm.

Address: 2 Eton Court, Eton Avenue, Newark. NG24 2JB
Asking Price: £145,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Detached Bungalow
Estate Agent: Richard Watkinson & Partners
Condition: Update Required
Rent Range: £525-£575pcm (once updated)
Yield: 4.76% (exc refurb costs)
Comments: Located in Hawtonville, rare bungalow opportunity but it’s in need of an update, the carpets are ageing it and the kitchen isn’t helping either. Try changing the unit doors rather than the carcasses to save money. Now Homes have been trying to sell No 5 since May for £149,950, it would appear a lot of Bungalows have been reduced recently on Rightmove.

Address: 62 Wolfit Avenue, Balderton, Newark, NG24 3PH
Asking Price: £130,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Semi Detached
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Update Required
Rent Range: £625-675pcm (once completed)
Yield: 6.23% (exc refurb costs)
Comments: Plenty of potential and try saving costs by decorating, lifting flooring and changing kitchen unit doors yourself. Main thing is to get the house EPC ‘E’ or above for legality reason then crack on with the cosmetic bits.

Address: Flat 102, The Roundhead Building, Warwick Brewery, Newark, NG24 1TU
Asking Price: Offers over £129.950
Property Type: 2 Bedroom First Floor Apartment
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Ready to Rent
Ground Rent: £100 PA
Management Fee: £1000 PA
Rent Range: £600-650pcm
Yield: 5.95%
Comments: Well presented apartment in a sought after location, last sale was a 3 Bed in Sep 2017 for £138,500 so the price seems fair. Low EPC and electric heating may put potential tenants off.

Address: 35 Stafford Avenue, Balderton, Newark NG24
Asking Price: £115,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Semi Detached
Estate Agent: Alasdair Morrison
Condition: No photos to see
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 6% (exc any potential work)
Comments: Pretty useless ad but i’ve done some digging and it turns out this is currently at HMO (house of multiple occupancy)! The blue kitchen cabinets are…different, seen worse but it’s likely you’ll need to spend money to make it a family home again.

Address: Mill Green, Newark. NG24 2HU
Asking Price: £110,000
Property Type: 3 bedroom terraced house
Estate Agent: Castlegate and Martin & Co.
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £500-550pcm
Yield: 5.5%
Comments: On with two agents, Martin and Co have had it a week longer. Interesting bathroom and kitchen tiles but i’ve seen bolder!! The small living area often lets these properties down when finding a tenant.

Address: 184 Barnby Gate, Newark, NG24 1RH
Asking Price: £110,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Terrace
Estate Agent: Purple Bricks
Condition: Some Updates Required
Rent Range: £500-550pcm
Yield: 6%
Comments: Good kitchen and bathroom so the biggest battle is already done. Pull up those bold carpets and go for ‘character’ by leaving the floorboards exposed underneath, very quaint. Check the age of the boiler so you don’t get caught out.

Address: Goldstraw Lane, Fernwood. NG24 3FF
Asking Price: £85,000
Property Type: 2 bedroom apartment
Estate Agent: Martin & Co.
Condition: Ready to Rent
Ground Rent: £135 PA
Maintenance Charge: £1252.45 PA
Rent Range: £500-550pcm
Yield: 7.63%
Comments: Great first investment, modern apartment with the bonus of an en-suite AND bathroom, we let the same style of apartment on Youngs Avenue earlier this year for £550pcm. No 46 sold in Dec 2017 for £87k with the same condition and layout.

Property Type: 3 Bed End of Terrace
Estate Agent: William H Brown
Condition: Little Work Required
Rent Range: £525-575pcm (once work completed)
Yield: 5.11% (NOT inc improvement costs)
Comments: I would suggest carpets at least in the bedrooms, whether you’d like to keep the blue is up to you! There’s no EPC, it will need to be E or higher to rent out. Downstairs bathrooms can be a bit marmitey so bare that it mind.

Address: Portland Street, Newark, NG24 4XG

Property Type: 3 Bed Mid Terrace Cottage
Estate Agent: CPG Properties
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm

Comments: Quirky property although on a busy road, kitchen is a little underwhelming and washed out (sanding down those beams to bring the colour back may help?!) but the rest is pretty cosy. Loving the garden bar USP.

Asking Price: £110,000
Property Type: 3/4 Bed Semi-Detached
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Work Required
Rent Range: £550-600pcm (once renovated)
Yield: 6.55% (NOT inc renovation costs)
Comments: Carpets and redecoration definitely required; ideally new kitchen but if cutting costs then rub down and paint unit doors although those tiles still need to go. Need to look into the damp issue in the bedroom and as for the bathroom…who knows?! Poor garden…

Address: Robert Dukeson Avenue, Newark, NG24 2FF
Asking Price: £140,000
Property Type: 2 Bed End of Terrace
Estate Agent: Martin and Co
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 4.7%

Estate Agent: Jon Brambles

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.

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.

Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 5.14%
Comments: Ideal family home, looks great throughout although number 5 sold in August 2017 for £129,950 with a slightly higher finish and new carpets so i’d either negotiate or look at the larger property above.

Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
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.

Type: 3 Bedroom Town House
Asking Price: £145,000
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell

Yield: 5.38%
Comments: Very well presented town house ideal for a first time investor with little/no work required meaning it could be marketed straight away; the vendors purchased this is in March for £139,500 so they aren’t making much after fees. 3 bed town house in Fernwood with a large garden and 2 parking spaces, perfect.

Yield: 5.42%
Comments: Cosey little house perfect for a couple or singleton, the camera shy bathroom does worry me but the driveway is always a tenant pleaser and it’s in a great location. Don’t be put off by the nearby train line, it’s not THAT close and our tenants on the same street don’t seem to notice it!

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: 4 Wisdom Close, Fernwood, Newark, NG24 3WJ
Type: 3 Bed End of Terrace House
Asking Price: £140,000
Estate Agent: William H Brown
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range:£600-650pcm
Yield: 5.57% yield

First listed back in March for £160,000, this modern 3 bed end of terrace house on the popular Fernwood establishment has struggled to get the asking price and has since been reduced twice, initially to £150,000 and now to £140,000; aside from taking the stickers off the second bedroom wall, the property is ready to go!

We recently let out a 3 bed semi detached house on Wisdom Close within a week for £675pcm that was purchased for £150,000 in March, it gained a lot of interest from couples and families due to the close proximity to the A1/A46 for commuters and both Fernwood play ground and Primary School are within walking distance from the property. So is £140,000 about right? Well both Number 4 and 5 have enough parking for 2 vehicles, 3 bedrooms and a spacious living/dining room but Number 4 has a smaller third bedroom and kitchen, doesn’t have an en-suite and is a terrace, sounds alright to me! Having said that, i don’t think that there’s anything else the current owners could have done to increase the value so i’d say this is better as a buy to let than a first time buy as the buy to let would make more money in the long run, the first time buyer may struggle to increase the value.

As Wisdom Close was only completed 3 years ago, there have only been 2 sales on the street, both of which were semi detached properties for £149,000 and £150,000 so i can see why this property didn’t sell at £160,000, why would you pay more for less house? Two reductions later this price seems fair and the previous interest we’ve had on 5 Wisdom Close would suggest that the property could be tenanted promptly too.

From an investors perspective this would be ideal for a first time investor or an established one, it doesn’t required any work and the rental market would suggest it’s a desirable area for tenants; after two reductions, it would seem it was valued optimistically at an initial glance, will you going to have a look to find out?

If you’re interested in this property and would like a detailed report on it’s investment potential, call us on 01636 343014, or better still pop in for a chat and a cuppa.

Yield: 5.78%
Comments: Properties like this one on the street don’t appear on the market very often, it’s in a great location for the A1/A46 and would suit most types of tenant, however the shower unit could do with coming out of the bathroom and replacing it with a bath and an overhead shower as it will appeal to more tenants.

Address: 103 Elizabeth Road, Newark, Nottinghamshire, NG24 4NR
Type: 3 Bedroom semi detached
Asking Price: £134,950
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Ready to rent
Rent Range: £625-675pcm
Yield: 6%
Comments: The owners have clearly spent a lot of money on the property, it was bought 2 years for £37k less than the current asking price so it looks like there hard work has paid off. Great property for a family with plenty of living space and a large enclosed rear garden.
