Estate Agent: Whitegates
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £500-550pcm
Yield: 5.08%
Comments: Purchased in Nov 2016 for £111k and i wouldn’t appear to have changed at all. Good budget friendly property for potential tenants with a high epc, low council tax band and cheap rent. I think the asking price is pretty high, i’d go for Wright St or Coronation St below, much nicer and less money!

Asking Price: £140,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Semi-Detached House
Estate Agent: Newton & Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent

Estate Agent: Edlin & Jarvis
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £500-550pcm

Comments: The only fixer upper of the week and my goodness does it need gutting! No 12 sold in August for £139k, it was a beautiful example, take a look at the old listing for tips, can’t help but think this asking price is pretty high for what needs doing on this property.

Asking Price: £85,000
Property Type: 1 Bedroom first Floor Flat
Estate Agent: Martin & Co
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £375-425pcm
Yield: 6%
Comments: We let this property less than 6 months ago, good central location and nice modern finishes but the lack of parking anywhere near the flat and very small living space makes it a tough one to let.

Plenty of properties this week although with nearly all of them ready to go so no need to invest too much into your investment! If you have any questions about any of this weeks properties then i’d love to have a chat on 01636 343014, or even better, pop in for a chat and a cuppa.

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!

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.

Asking Price: £85,000
Property Type: 2 bedroom apartment
Estate Agent: Martin & Co.
Condition: Ready to Rent

A good selection of properties, makes a nice change! If you have any questions about any of this weeks properties then i’d love to have a chat on 01636 343014, or even better, pop in for a chat and a cuppa.

EYES ON….THIS WEEK INVESTMENTS IN NEWARK!!!

Standard

Here is this weeks round up of new properties for sale in NG24, i’ve gone up to a value of £160,000 this time for some more selection, there were so many reductions that i hadn’t got much to show you!

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

Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £625-675pcm
Yield: 5.06%

Yield: 5.02% (inc GR and SC)
Comments: Fabulous apartment locate in a desirable development, brilliant first time buy as no work is required however NOTHING in this block has sold for more than £140,000 so as lovely as this is, i’m not sure why it’s so much.

Asking Price: £155,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Semi-detached
Estate Agent: Richard Watkinson
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 4.84%
Comments: Another property that’s had some money spent on it, a large family room extension and loft conversion makes for a great family home; the extension makes it difficult to value but a 4 bed sold Dec 2016 for £142,500.

Address: Fairfax Avenue, Newark, NG24 4PQ
Asking Price: £140,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Semi-detached
Estate Agent: CPG Property
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 5.14%

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.

Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £600-650pcm
Yield: 5.64% (inc GR and SC)
Comments: Another apartment at Warwick Brewery, the initial outlay and running costs are lower with this one so ideal if you liked the look of the first one but can’t quite stretch that far.

EYES ON….The Investment Property Of The Week…..

Standard

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

Address: The Courtyard, Castle Brewery, NG24 4FF
Type: 2 Bedroom First Floor Apartment
Asking Price: Offers in the Region of £115,000
Estate Agent: Purple Bricks
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm (once completed)
Yield: 6%

Located in the very sought after Castle Brewery development, this first floor apartment is perfect for someone looking for modern, professional accommodation with the added bonus of allocated parking and in house gym access, ideal for a working couple! With Albert Street and Asda on one side and Iceland and the cinema on the other within just a couple of minutes walk, tenants will never be too far from the local amenities; it’s close enough to Newark Castle to be able to walk to the station yet far enough out of the centre to go straight to the A1/A46 down London Road.

We recently let out a 2 bed first floor flat in The Courtyard without a juliette balcony but with a recently renovated bathroom for £600pcm and we had no end of enquiries from both couples and single professionals; there is nothing wrong with the current bathroom, it’s just very vanilla, however if you wanted to reach £600pcm then some beautiful floor to ceiling tiles along with a modern bath panel and shower screen would certainly get you there.

Apartments don’t come up for sale in the Courtyard very often, particularly 2 bedroom ones, the last one sold in 2014 for £106,500 with the last 1 bed selling in 2015 for £85,000 however prior to that was a penthouse 1 bed with a balcony that for £124,000 in 2015 so do you think the price is right? Higher or Lower?!

In conclusion, i think this is a great apartment that would tick the boxes for many professional people, £600pcm for a modern apartment with parking, gym access and good connections for trains and cars. From an investors perspective this would be ideal for a first time investor or an established one, it requires very little maintenance or work as the bathroom update is just a suggestion, the question is….will you be booking a viewing?

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.
