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: 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.

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 OF THE WEEK IN NEWARK!!

Standard

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

Address: Maltings View, George Street, Newark, NG24 1LU
Type: 1 & 2 Bedroom Residential Apartments
Asking Price: Starting at £90,000 for 1 bed.
Estate Agent: Richard Watkinson and Partners
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £475-£550pcm (dependant on apartment)
Yield: 5.25%-6.33%

Brilliant opportunity as a first time investment property or a great way to get on the property ladder, finished to a high standard, these 1 and 2 bedroom apartments just 5 minutes walk from Newark North Gate will require little maintenance and even have a gym just around the corner.

Maltings View comprises of 9 residential apartments, 5 of which have already sold, the 4 remaining are:

– Apartment 1 – 2 Bed – £120,000 – £525pcm – 5.25% yield
– Apartment 2 – 2 Bed – £120,000 – £525pcm – 5.25% yield
– Apartment 6 – 1 Bed – £90,000 – £475pcm – 6.33% yeild
– Apartment 7 – 2 Bed – £105,000 – £550pcm – 6.29% yield

The finish and location will make these apartments ideal for professional commuters needing a second home throughout the week with piece of mind that their weekday home is secure in an apartment block when they’re away at the weekend; you could contact the local gym to get a reduced rate for the 4 apartments and include it in the rent as a USP.

Open plan living, parking and a short distance to Newark town centre and all of its amenities, these apartments will tick a lot of boxes for couples looking for modern living at a reasonable price, George Street has a small amount of parking so the additional perk of off street parking will make all the difference. Apartment 6 and 7 certainly seem to be the best options with both the asking prices and the yield although Apartment 6 does have the lowest rental return at £5,700 as opposed to Apartment 7 with £6,600 but it depends on what you’re wanting, could a deal been done on the asking prices of the apartments if several were bought?

Not one to buy if you want a fixer upper but perfect as a first time investment or for a landlord who doesn’t have the time to be around their properties a lot, 6.33% yield certainly isn’t something to be scoffed at; most tenants want high end properties with good broadband and parking, with fibre optic and virgin media available, where do i sign?

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.

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

Standard

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

Address: Stafford Ave, New Balderton, Balderton, Newark NG24 3EG
Type: 3 Bed Mid-Terrace House
Asking Price: £99,950
Estate Agent: William H Brown
Condition: Requires renovation
Rent Range: £525-575pcm (once completed)
Yield: 6.9%

Fantastic opportunity in a cul-de-sac off Hawton Lane on the edge of New Balderton, perfect for a landlord or investor who doesn’t mind getting their hands dirty..or someone else’s! Spacious living accommodation, off road parking and great location for families, once renovated, this property will plenty boxes for potential tenants.

Ideal for as a buy to let, fix and sell or a first time buy, the stylish slate grey windows and door frame would suggest they have been recently fitted so just the inside remains; I’ve found that tenants don’t like downstairs bathrooms or separate bathrooms and toilets, why would you have a sink in a different room?! Aside from the camera shy kitchen, which i will assume isn’t because it’s so stunning the agents didn’t want to make the rest look tired, a lick of on trend grey paint and neutral new flooring throughout will lift the property with ease and give a much warmer feel than magnolia everywhere.

Assuming the kitchen is out of date, cream, grey or black doors give a high end finish for not a lot more than budget beech door fronts and will look great with a light oak effect worktop; save money by just replacing the doors instead of the complete unit. If you fancy the challenge, take a look around and see if you can knock through to make the bathroom and w/c one room!

The last property on Stafford Avenue sold for £124,000 in January with a simple but appealing neutral interior, plenty of off street parking and a low maintenance garden but according to RightMove, only 7 properties have sold on Stafford Avenue since 1997 suggesting people don’t buy to fix up and sell but to stay long term. Number 1 sold in 2016 for £115,000, it was a 3 bedroom mid terrace renovated to a high standard, looking at prices now though there’s no reason after all that work you couldn’t sell it on for £130,000+ depending on the finish.

This will certainly be an investment to keep you busy but isn’t that the fun part? Not to mention nearly 7% isn’t to be scoffed at although agreeably it will take time to make back the money you’ve put into the property but £575pcm is more than achievable, with the way the rental market is going you may even get more! It has been on the market since March and was reduced this week, why not make the most of a rare renovation opportunity and take a look?
