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.

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.

Property Type: 3 Bed Semi-Detached House
Estate Agent: CPG Property
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 5%
Comments: Good size and location, lack of bath and busy road may put families with young children off and i’d maybe lose the orange and peach bedrooms but that’s personal preference. Overall a bit of a vanilla property.

Property Type: 3 Bed Mid Terraced House
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £475-525pcm

Yield: 5.14% (NOT including update costs)
Comments: Plenty of space but showing it’s age in places although take the curtains and lamp shades down and it’s looking younger already! I’d recommend changing the bold carpets and updating the kitchen tiles to something bright…the units too if you can. No idea about the bathroom!

Condition: Update Required
Rent Range: £550-600pcm (based on high end finish)

Property Type: 2 Bed Mid Terrace House
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £445-495pcm
Yield: 6.6%
Comments: Small but well presented and less than £100k making it a great first time investment and great budget property for prospective tenants. #7 sold for £95k in March 2018 in a similar condition. No EPC yet so make sure you check it’s higher than an ‘E’!

Estate Agent: Alasdair Morrison
Condition: Major Update Required

EYES ON….THIS WEEKS INVESTMENTS 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: 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.

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.

Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Ready to Rent (ish)
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 5.14%
Comments: Another property in the same area with a great kitchen, the rest of this property is little more vibrate so to appeal to more tenants i’d tone it down to light grey, cream or mink…just not magnolia!!

Property Type: 3 Bed Mid-terrace
Estate Agent: Richard Watkinson
Condition: Modernisation Required
Rent Range: £500-550pcm (after a basic refurb)
Yield: 5.28%
Comments: Only 4 sales on this street in the last 10 years, this dated property needs some tlc and that lift removing, it might be a USP but it’s a common request from tenants.

Buttercross Best Buy
Address: 8 Wright Street, Newark, NG24
Asking Price: £110,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Mid-terrace
Estate Agent: Edlin and Jarvis
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £500-550pcm

Condition: Ready to Rent

Condition: Some Modernisation Required
Rent Range: £600-650pcm (after work)
Yield: 5.38%
Comments: Unusual USP’s with this terrace, a garage, driveway and a sink in the bedroom! Modernise some of the dated features and check that EPC as it’s not been rated yet. Number 4 sold in Jan 2016 for £125,000 with a brighter finish.

Address: 216 London Road, Balderton, NEWARK, NG24 3HD
Asking Price: £140,000
Property Type: 3 Bed End of Terrace
Estate Agent: William H Brown
Condition: Full Refurbishment Required
Rent Range: £600-650pcm (after work)
Yield: 5.57%
Comments: Another terrace with garage and a driveway except this one needs much more work, it’s suffering with damp which isn’t helped by the solid walls so keep an eye on that. EPC checks out but it’s scraped an E..would you pay £140,000 for this?

Condition: Some Modernisation Required
Rent Range: £400-450pcm (After work)

EYES ON…This Weeks Investments 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: 1 Newton Street, Newark, NG24 1SU
Asking Price: £110,000
Property Type: 3 Bed End Terrace
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Work Required
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 6.27%
Comments: Great property for a young family thanks to Barnby Gate Academy located just around the corner and it’s only a short walk to the park and town centre. Cosmetically the property could really do with new carpets throughout, a fresh coat of magnolia (if you HAVE stick to that colour) and get the gloss out and ditch the dark woodwork. MOST importantly, this property is EPC ‘F’ meaning NOBODY can let it after April 2018, get in touch with Talk Green to find out what your options are.

Address: Williams Lane, Fernwood, Newark, NG24 3FN
Asking Price: £95,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Ground Floor Apartment
Ground Rent: not disclosed
Service Charge: not disclosed
Estate Agent: William H Brown
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £450-495pcm
Yield: 6.25%
Comments: Popular Fernwood location that works for families and couples, particularly for the school and A1/A46 access, although i do think this is better suited to a professional couple due to size and wear and tear. The last 1st floor flat sold round the corner on Ainsdale Close in June for £72,000 with a very similar layout, allocated parking and slightly nicer decor so why this is £95k is beyond me.

Address: 4 Guildhall Street, Newark, NG24 1UH
Asking Price: £125,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Mid Terrace Cottage
Estate Agent: Richard Watkinson
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 5.52%
Comments: Quirky cottage style terrace in Newark Town Centre, ideal for tenants using public transport with the bus and train stations just short walks from the property. Very difficult to compare the price as it’s so unusual, the lack of parking will put prospective tenants off and the style is very marmitey but you can’t please everyone regardless of what you buy!

Address: 124 Bowbridge Road, Newark, NG24 4DQ
Asking Price: £110,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Mid Terrace
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 6.27%
Comments: Simple family home close to Holy Trinity School and the sports centre with the bonus of off street parking, it’s a bit of a vanilla property but it’s fine and you wouldn’t have to do a lot to it; i’d check whether that’s a furniture mark or damage to the living room carpet and consider losing the green in the bedroom. The price seems fair although it doesn’t have an EPC yet, you’ll need make sure it’s an ‘E’ or above unless you’re willing to spend the money to get it there.

Buttercross Best Buy
Address: Barrows Gate, Newark NG24 2FY
Asking Price: £90,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Ground Floor Flat
Ground Rent: £101 paid every 6 months
Service Charge: £986.27 per annum
Estate Agent: Martin and Co
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £445-495pcm
Yield: 6.51% (inc SC and GR)
Comments: Great modern flat close to the A1/A46, town centre and KnowHow making this perfect for most professionals and a first time investor; the lack of magnolia, modern finishes and parking for both tenants and guests ticks additional boxes too. The last sale was back in 2014 but looking at the one above for £95,000 with a similar selling in Fernwood in June for £72,000, that should give you a rough idea, which would you prefer?

Address: 57 Jubilee Street, Newark, Nottinghamshire, NG24 4DA
Asking Price: £125,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Mid Terrace (previously sold as a 3 Bed?!)
Estate Agent: Haart
Condition: Light Redecoration Required
Rent Range: £500-550pcm
Yield: 5.28%
Comments: Lovely looking terrace close to town centre, the vendor purchased the property in Dec for £99,000 and since then they’ve had the living room beams covered and skimmed, decorated the bedrooms and living room along with new carpets and potentially skimmed the bedrooms; the bathroom and kitchen haven’t changed aside from the lack of paint on the back wall and there’s no photos of the dining room, i wonder if it still has a wood panelled ceiling and stone fire surround? Is the £26,000 increase worth it?

Eyes on This Weeks Investments…..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: 21 Kingsnorth, Newark, NG24 1PS
Asking Price: £145,000
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Some work required
Rent Range: £625-675pcm (once work completed)
Yield: 5.4%
Comments: Semi-detatched, located down a quiet cul-de-sac within catchment to Barnby Gate School. In April 2017 a property very similar to this with a more modern kitchen and bathroom sold for £140,000 so why is this £149,950 when you need to rip out the dated kitchen and bathroom?

Address: 4 Clipsham Close, Balderton, NG24 3LD
Asking Price: £140,000
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Ready to rent
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 5.14%
Comments: Located in a desirable area of Balderton with great connections to the A1/A46, this 2 bed semi-detached house is well presented making it ideal for a first-time investor. It comes with an off-street parking space and the largely landscaped garden with limited grass space however the small bedrooms would make it well suited for a professional couple.

Address: 3 Barnby Crossing, Newark, NG24 2NG
Asking Price: £129,950
Estate Agent: CPG Property
Condition: Ready to rent.
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 5.55%
Comments: Lovingly finished 2 bed terraced house with a great views of the English countryside. It has a great reception area made via an extension to the kitchen but is let down by the dated tiles that aside, it would make a great first time investment but bare in mind the closeness of the train line could be unattractive to most tenants.

Address: 11 Barnby Crossing, Newark, NG24 2NG
Asking Price: £129,950
Estate Agent: CPG Property
Condition: Ready to rent.
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 5.55%
Comments: The second of two properties listed on Barnby Crossing this week. With two reception areas, two decent sized double bedrooms and a large bathroom we could see a working couple that could take advantage of the great travel links the location of this property has to offer. This property was sold previously in April 2017 so why the sudden need to sell?

Address: 89 Ruby’s Walk, Fernwood, Newark NG24 3FA
Asking Price: £139,950
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Ready to rent
Rent Range: £600-650pcm
Yield: 5.78%
Comments: Located on the popular Fernwood estate this property would be ideal for professional couple or a small family. The bedrooms appear to be camera shy so it is hard to say whether there is anything to do cosmetically, although The most recently sold 3 bed end of terrace house on the estate (with a similar lay-out) was sold for £115,000 in 2013; It had a beautifully landscaped garden and a more modern interior.

Address: 15 Kings Road, Newark NG24 1EW
Asking Price: £125,000
Estate Agent:Richard Watkinson
Condition: Ready to rent
Rent Range: £500-550pcm
Yield: 5.28%
Comments: Period Terrace house within walking distance of the train station. Morrisons is only a few doors down, so that makes the weekly shop that bit easier! Was bought in 2014 for £90,000 so questions can be asked as to whether £35,000 of extra value has been added on in the last 3 years considering it has only been painted.

Buttercross Best Buy
Address: 188 Barnby Gate, Newark NG24 1RH
Asking Price: £120,000
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles
Condition: Ready To Rent
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 6.25%
Comments: Fabulously decorated, and somewhat a bit odd! 3 beds makes this ideal for a family. Would be a problem to those who need a car as no off-street parking so better suited to those who work in town. Ideal for a first time investor. We understand that next door was sold for £110,000 earlier this year. However, next door was in need of a brand new kitchen, redecoration throughout and don’t get us started on that bathroom!

Investment Property Of The Week….

Standard

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

Address: 18 Newton Street, Newark, NG24 1SX
Type: 3 Bedroom Mid Terrace House
Asking Price: Offers in the Region of £125,000
Estate Agent: Richard Watkinson & Partners
Condition: Refurbishment Required
Rent Range: £575-625pcm (once completed)
Yield: 6%

This property will be ideal for couples or families alike due to the fantastic location for town centre, both train stations and it’s just 5 minutes walk from the OFSTED outstanding and oversubscribed Barnby Road Academy School. A great thing to bare in mind is that families with young children will aim to enroll their little ones at Barnby Road School meaning that they are likely to stay at the property until they leave when they’re 11 years old.

In the last 3 years, 4 properties have been sold on this street ranging from £120,000 to £226,000 but only one was a terrace which sold for £120,00 in a similar condition to this property in December 2016.

The house has good sized rooms throughout with an upstairs bathroom and an additional shower room downstairs, the kitchen appears to require nothing but a good clean and the bathroom ceiling just needs a repaint along with a replacement shower as the tiles and suite don’t appear to be that old. As for the rest of the house, certainly all the carpets need to be replaced and those rooms with wood flooring either need carpet laying or painting/varnishing as they all look tatty and worn. The bedrooms definitely need a lick of paint or a wallpapered feature wall or two for a bit of colour and the peeling ceiling in Bedroom 3 needs some TLC!

This will appeal most types tenants once it’s been refurbished however i think there is movement in that price and of course, whatever you can save when buying the property you can put towards refurbishing it, £115,000 instead of £125,000 will push you to 6.5% yield…

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.
