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

Standard

Here’s a look at the latest properties coming to market in Newark. I’ve added some comments and given you an idea of what you can expect rent wise if you go for it, lets see what you think…

Address: 1a Albert Avenue, Balderton, Newark, NG24 4HE
Asking Price: £150,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Semi-Detached House
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £545-595pcm
Yield: 4.76%
Comments: Bought in Sept 18 for £145k, this property hasn’t changed and has been for sale since August, they’ve just changed agents. Lovely looking house but you just don’t get a lot of space for your money.

Address: 70 Lime Grove, Newark NG24 4AH
Asking Price: £150,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Terraced House
Estate Agent: William H Brown
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £600-650pcm
Yield: 5.2%
Comments: This was my POTW two weeks ago when it went on with Winkworth, i’m guessing it’s changed as Winkworth Newark has closed (although they advertised it better!). Scroll down to see my previous property comments.

Address: 59 Clarks Lane, Newark NG24 2EF
Asking Price: £144,950
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Semi – Detached House
Estate Agent: NOW Homes
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £600-650pcm
Yield: 5.38%
Comments: Purchased in 2016 for £99,692, it’s been carpeted and decorated throughout and the white bathroom suit is new. Kitchen, sadly, is the original..it’s blue! Located at the end of Strawberry Hall Lane so the location is a bit marmite-y.

Address: 11 Clayton Close, Newark NG24 4HN
Asking Price: £140,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Semi – Detached House
Estate Agent: Newton & Fallowell
Condition: A little dated
Rent Range: £550-600pcm (once updated)
Yield: 5.14%
Comments: Bungalow’s are rare and often desirable rentals. This one is a little dated, particularly the decor and the bathroom is looking older than the kitchen although both would benefit from a re-fit. Check out the EPC before committing.

Address: 10 Thoresby Avenue, Newark NG24 4DJ
Asking Price: £140,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Semi – Detached House
Estate Agent: Newton & Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 5.36%
Comments: This house has had a major refurb since it was bought in Aug 13 for £99k. No EPC and no mention of a recent boiler fitment so worth checking those first, EPC needs to be E and above!

Buttercross Best Buy
Address: 85 Lime Grove, Newark NG24 4AQ
Asking Price: £130,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Terraced House
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Odd jobs required
Rent Range: £600-650pcm (once odd jobs done)
Yield: 6% (exc renovation costs)
Comments: Good potential, the bathroom and kitchen need a good clean (i’d change the bathroom if poss). I’d check if the leak if the roof is new or old too – paint the ceiling if old (don’t forget the stain block!). Bedroom carpet is looking thin. Oven isn’t looking great, it will need to be checked each year as it’s gas, if it’s on the way out, i’d get the gas capped and swap to electric.

Address: 7 Carlton Road, Newark, NG24 4HD
Asking Price: £130,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Semi – Detached House
Estate Agent: Newton & Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 5.53%
Comments: A fairly vanilla house, bathroom needs finishing off but that’s it really. I’d recommend changing the decor to something more neutral to help let the property however, i’d be inclined to leave it be for this house as i’m not sure you’d see the return unless you do the decorating yourself.

So that’s this weeks selection, there’s been an increase of ex council properties of late, at least a couple a week. 85 Lime Grove would be a good one to make some money on in the long run, especially if you can do the simple jobs yourself. Albert Avenue is another great property, i was torn and nearly pushed the value higher but i can’t be sure as it’s quirky! Struggling to give you a property of the week though from these, i’d pick Lime Grove fixer upper. Feel free to give me a call on 01636 343014 or even pop in to the office for a chat to let me know what you think :).

Address: 83 Barnby Gate, Newark. NG24 1QW
Asking Price: £150,000-£155,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Mid Terrace House
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £545-£595pcm
Yield: 4.76%
Comments: Bought just 7 months ago for £145k, nothing has changed at all. Begs the question, why move so soon? Neighbours, parking, noise? Positives – very well presented, plenty of living space and central location.

Address: Goldsmith Road, Balderton, Newark, NG24 3QR
Asking Price: £150,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Semi – Detached Bungalow
Estate Agent: William H Brown
Condition: Some work needed
Rent Range: £600-650pcm when done
Yield: 5.2%
Comments: Bungalow rentals are few and far between but popular, this one needs a lick of paint, couple of carpet changes, a new oven and at least a re-grout in the bathroom. Replacement kitchen and bathroom would be best but understandably not ideal.

Address: 20 Boundary Road, Newark NG24 4AL
Asking Price: £150,000 – £160,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Terraced House
Estate Agent: Newton & Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 5%
Comments: Well presented property although funny layout, kitchen-bathroom-utility-sunroom!? No bath which often puts young families off. Good sized bedrooms. #26 sold for £153k in Nov 18 in a similar condition but not extended as much.

Buttercross Best Buy
Address: 70 Lime Grove, Newark, NG24 4AH
Asking Price: £149,950
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Terraced House
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £600-650pcm
Yield: 5.2%
Comments: #40 sold in Dec 18 for £137,500 in similar condition. Downstairs bathroom isn’t for everyone so consider that. Popular street, we’ve often found rentals go promptly when priced right. Just need to lose the nursery decor and try and budge that price.

Address: 20 Orchid Drive, Farndon, Newark, Nottinghamshire NG24 3TX
Asking Price: £147,500
Property Type: 2 Bedroom House
Estate Agent: Belvoir!
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 5.08%
Comments: Popular village with a garage conversion. Second bed a little small but good for a couple or single person. No work required, worth checking the boiler age as it will be on it’s last legs if it’s the original.

Address: 77 Clarks Lane, Newark, Nottinghamshire, NG24 2EF
Asking Price: £130,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Semi – Detached House
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 5.3%

Address: 1 The Malthouse, Newark, NG24 1LA
Asking Price: £130,000 – £140,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Ground Floor Duplex Apartment
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £600-650pcm
Ground Rent: £800 PA
Yield: 5.96%
Comments: Really lovely apartment in a good, central location to town and station. We’ve let apartments at Maltings View on the other side of the road Apartments seem to take a very long time to sell in this block, i’m honestly not sure why, too much money?! This was purchased in June 16 for £137,500.

Address: 9 Philip Road, Newark NG24 4LX
Asking Price: £130,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Terraced House
Estate Agent: William H Brown
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 5.76%
Comments: Recently renovated although i can’t get past the dark brown window surrounds and window sills…why?! Bit of a marmite-y area but you’ll never please everyone! We let a 4 bed for £675pcm earlier in the year to a similar standard on Gopher Road.

Address: 32 Side Row, Newark, NG24 2JB
Asking Price: £119,950
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Terraced House
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £500-£550pcm
Yield: 5.5%
Comments: Ready to go, nice budget friendly for both LL and tenant. Good for A1 and industrial estate. Was previously marketed with another agent back in January 2019, properties in this area can take a while to sell.

Address: 18 Youngs Avenue, Fernwood, Newark. NG24 3FG
Asking Price: £99,950
Property Type: 2 Bedroom First Floor Apartment
Estate Agent: Martin & Co
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £470-£520pcm
Yield: 6.2%
Comments: Bought for £77k in March 2017, considered ditching the lounge carpet and lightening up walls in bedroom 2 and the hallway to get maximum rental and a quicker let. The photos don’t really help as they make the apartment seem dark.

Service Charge: £960 PA
Ground Rent: £130 PA

Rent Range: £545-£595pcm
Yield: 5.1%
Comments: Good starter property for both LL’s and tenants, good EPC, low council tax band. Lots of terrace’s to let so harder to stand out but good pics and price will help. No work needed, tenants just need to be ready for 2 sets of neighbours!

Asking Price: £130,000-140,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Semi-Detached
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Update Required
Rent Range: £525-£575pcm
Yield: 4.92%
Comments: Two great sized bedrooms and plenty of living space, a little dated in all honesty, the kitchen really lets it down…can’t decide what’s on the floor either..carpet effect vinyl?! More £130k than £140k.

Address: 10 Edward Avenue, Newark, NG24 4UZ
Asking Price: £130,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Mid Terrace
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-£575pcm

Property Type: 3 Bed Mid Terrace
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-£600pcm

Address: Lindum Street, Newark, NG24 1NH
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: #13 sold in June 18 for £124k with only 2 bedrooms…VERY well presented though. This property is fine, a bit vanilla and bed 3 is a bit tiddly. EPC is pretty low, just to be aware of if the min rating changes then you’ll be in hot water.

Address: 26 Bowbridge Road, Newark, NG24 4BZ
Asking Price: £115,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Mid Terrace
Estate Agent: Martin and Co
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £475-525pcm
Yield: 5.47%
Comments: The photos are not helping this house at all…wowzers. The dark wallpaper needs to go in Bed 1 to help it feel lighter, no idea what bed 2 looks like. Bought for £83,320 in July 13, honestly it looked better before.

Address: Sleaford Road, Newark, NG24 1NG
Asking Price: £110,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Mid Terrace
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Update Required
Rent Range: £500-£550pcm (nearer £550pcm when done).
Yield: 6%

Address: Stephen Road, Newark, NG24 2BG
Asking Price: £100,000 – £110,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Semi-Detached
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-£600pcm
Yield: 6.54%
Comments: 3 Bed #30 sold for £130k in Nov 18 in a similar condition, not really sure why this is so much less! Neutral throughout, no EPC issues, ex council property.

So that’s this week’s selection, we’ve got terraced houses coming out of our ears!! I wouldn’t normal recommend a flat as it’s harder to increase income over time but it’s really quite lovely and i think it would let well. Feel free to give me a call on 01636 343014 or even pop in to the office for a chat to let me know what you think :).

Address: 13 Belvoir Road, Balderton, Newark, NG24 3HQ
Asking Price: £135,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Semi- Detached House
Estate Agent: Purple Bricks
Condition: Update Required
Rent Range: £600-650pcm (top end once updated)
Yield: 5.77%
Comments: Property is need of an update, particularly the carpet bath and dated kitchen. If i was flipping it then i’d take the wall out to sort out the weird shaped kitchen but that’s a different level! Seems too expensive for what you’re getting.

Address: 16 Baines Avenue, New Balderton, Newark NG24 3BL.
Asking Price: £150,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Semi Detached House
Estate Agent: William H Brown
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 4.8%

Address: MillGate Apartments, Mill Gate, Newark NG24 4TR
Asking Price: £140,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Apartment
Estate Agent: William H Brown
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 4.92%

Address: 2 Mercia Road, Newark NG24 4NA
Asking Price: £140,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Semi – Detached House
Estate Agent: William H Brown
Condition: Minor Updates
Rent Range: £575-625pcm (top end once updated)
Yield: 5.36%
Comments: Purchased back in 2006 for £107k, bad advert previously so i can only comment on the kitchen being the same. Last sale was for £122,500 in April 19 in a similar condition but no garage. Dial down the colours and bed 2 looks like it may be ready for a carpet.

Address: 3 Old Mill Crescent, Newark. NG24 2HY
Asking Price: £125,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Semi-Detached House
Estate Agent: Newton & Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield : 5.76%
Comments: Seems to be priced well, last 3 bed sold for £124,950 in April 17. Aside from a bit of weeding, it’s ready to go, if i’m being really picky then maybe get rid of the living room wallpaper but it’s not offensive.

Asking Price: £90,000
Property Type: 1 Bedroom First Floor Apartment
Estate Agent: Richard Watkinson & Partners
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £445-495pcm
Ground Rent: £50 PA
Service Charge: £700 PA
Yield: 6.55% (inc SC and GR)
Comments: Fantastic town centre location, lack of parking is going to put some people off. Ideal for a commuter. Purchased for £94,175 when it was first converted in 2007. Never far from a good coffee either!

So that’s this weeks selection, quite a few reductions so not too much choice. Not really anything worth going for this week but feel free to give me a call on 01636 343014 or even pop in to the office for a chat to let me know what you think :).

Property Type: 3 Bedroom Semi-Detached House
Estate Agent: Whitegates
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £625-675pcm
Yield: 5.4%
Comments: Well presented semi with a recent garage conversion (now an office), #32 sold in April for £145k that had a conversion to an additional reception room, i’d advise the same. Just check that EPC before committing.

Service Charge: £1184 PA (paid 6 monthly)
Ground Rent: £125 PA
Yield: 5.44% (inc SC and GR)
Comments: Lovely unique apartment in a popular development, single parking space can but potential tenants off. These apartments often make great rental properties but are hard to shift when you want to sell them.

Address: 14 Alexander Avenue, Newark. NG24 2BD
Asking Price: £135,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Semi- Detached House
Estate Agent: NOW Homes
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 5.56%
Comments: #2 sold in Nov 18 for £140k in a tired state so this seems pretty cheap. I’d lose the red wall and add a carpet to bed 1, unsure of bed 3. Check the boiler age, may have to factor a replacement in.

Address: 19 Stoke Avenue, Newark. NG24 4PH
Asking Price: £130,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Semi- Detached House
Estate Agent: Edlin & Jarvis
Condition: Some work required
Rent Range: £575-625pcm (once updated)
Yield: 5.76% (exc update costs)
Comments: Needs a bit of work, carpets need fitting and update some of those colours on the walls…including the green door! Looks like the master bed carpet needs a good clean or replacing. Update the lighting fixtures if you can, small things make a big difference.

Address: 52 Wolfit Avenue, Balderton, NG24 3PH

Property Type: 3 Bed Semi Detached
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £600-650pcm
Yield: 5.57%
Comments: Very well presented, current vendors have clearly spent a lot of time and money after they bought it in Sept 2016 in a very tired state. #48 sold Dec 18 for £137,500 in a much lesser condition than this property currently.

Buttercross Best Buy

Property Type: 2 Bed Mid Terrace
Estate Agent: Martin and Co
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-600pcm

Address: 39 King Street, Newark, NG24 4UQ
Asking Price: £105,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Mid Terrace
Estate Agent: Now Homes
Condition: Updated Required
Rent Range: £475-525pcm (once updated)
Yield: 6% (exc update costs)
Comments: Plenty of potential, we let #41 earlier this year in no time after a renovation throughout. The bathroom needs a decent extractor fan (see mould on ceiling!) and updating in general, ditch the kitchen floor, random wrong colour storage unit and add an extractor in there too. #34 sold for £95k in March.

Property Type: 2 Bedroom Semi – Detached
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Ungoing Renovation
Rent Range: £545-595pcm
Yield: 5.1%
Comments: Popular lakeside location and should make a nice property when done although not overly big. #7 sold for £140k in a good condition in April. Property not being shown in the best light but price seems fair STC of the remaining improvements.

Asking Price: £125,000

Estate Agent: William H Brown
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 5.52%

Address: 15 Grove Street, Balderton Newark NG24 3AR
Asking Price: £130,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Terraced House
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 5.76%
Comments: Good sized family house but tight street parking and lack of lawn may deter potential tenants. Bought in Nov 16 for £127,500, not much has changed apart from painting the kitchen yellow(?!)…i’d recommend cream to show it at it’s best.

Address: 44 Cardinal Hinsley Close, Newark NG24 4NQ
Asking Price: £120,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Terraced House
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 5.75%
Comments: Well presented little house on the edge of Hawtonville, good starter property due to low running costs but that second bedroom is very small. Check the boiler and consumer unit, if they’ve not been updated yet then something to factor in.

Address: 58 Beech Avenue, Newark NG24 4JN
Asking Price: £120,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Semi -Detached House
Estate Agent: Newton & Fallowell
Condition: Requires Updating
Rent Range: £600-650pcm (once renovated to a good standard)

Estate Agent:William H Brown
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 5.35%
Comments: Very well presented property, #36 sold in Jan for £125k with the same layout but let down by upstairs and bathroom. Hawtonville, like Fernwood, can be a bit marmite-y so that factor this in.

Address: 1 Chantry Close, Newark. NG24 4JZ

Property Type: 3 Bedroom Semi- Detached House
Estate Agent: William H Brown
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 4.96%
Comments: Bought in 2006 for £90k, unsure of how much its changed due to the lack of photos, looks like some of the carpets are getting thin in the bedrooms. Last sale was #6 in May for £91k, same layout but a little more tired.

Address: 3 St. Agustine’s Close, Newton Street, Newark NG24 1SY
Asking Price:£150,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom End of Terrace House
Estate Agent: Newton & Fallowell
Condition: Update Required in Areas
Rent Range: £600-650pcm (once completed)
Yield: 5.2%
Comments: Good spot for families wanting the Academy School, nice kitchen and bathroom, the rest of the house either needs new floor, redecorating or both.

So that’s this weeks selection, quite a few have come up in Hawtonville over the last month with less in the Fernwood area. A Couple of good investments in here, feel free to give me a call on 01636 343014 or even pop in to the office for a chat to let me know what you think :).

Address: 15 Byron Close, Newark NG24 4DX
Asking Price: Offers Over £140,000
Property Type: 4 Bed Terrace House
Estate Agent: Edlin & Jarvis
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £625-675pcm
Yield: 5.79%
Comments: Very well presented property, i’d be half tempted to leave the bold colours and wallpaper and see what the feedback is, it will feel more like a home than a rental. The area can make it harder to let but it’s swings and roundabouts.

Address: 36 Milner Street, Newark NG24 4AA
Asking Price: £140,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Mid Terrace House
Estate Agent: Newton & Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent – just garden tlc
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 5.14%
Comments: Owned since 2001, looks like it’s been recently “neutralised” for selling purposes, bad cover up of the old fire place and the garden needs some tlc. Good location for families with Barnby Road Academy around the corner.

Address: 32 Bailey Road, Newark, NG24 4EW
Asking Price: £140,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Terrace House
Estate Agent: Newton & Fallowell
Condition: Some Minor Work Required
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 5.14%
Comments: Open plan living will appeal to families plus plenty of off street parking. I’d consider changing/removing the wallpaper in the kitchen and certainly the bedroom carpet and wallpaper. #24 sold for £113k in March which was neutral throughout.

Address: 93 Goldstraw Lane, Fernwood. NG24 3FD
Asking Price: £139,950

Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 5.36%
Comments: Purchased from new back in 2006 for £121,995, doesn’t appear to have changed in this time. Popular location but those bedrooms are small, more suitable for a couple with occasional guests.

Address: 15 Heron Way, Balderton. NG24 3DD
Asking Price: £135,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Semi Detached House
Estate Agent: NOW Homes
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 5.11%
Comments: This has been on and off the market a lot over recent years, it’s a popular location but the house or the price isn’t working for people. Check the consumer unit and boiler as these will be getting old now if they’ve not been done yet. Bed 2 wallpaper makes the room feel small.

Address: 77 Hatton Gardens, Newark NG24 4BU
Asking Price: £132,500
Property Type: 2 Bed Terraced House
Estate Agent: Newton & Fallowell
Condition: EPC Too Low to Rent
Rent Range: £545-595pcm
Yield: 5.39%
Comments: Really well presented property and in a nice spot too however, it’s an EPC F so it’s not legal to let. Get yourself a copy of the EPC off the register to see whether you’re able to pay for the required improvements before committing.

Address: 22 Hine Avenue, Newark NG24 2LH
Asking Price: £130,000 – £140,000

Estate Agent: Newton & Fallowell
Condition: Needs some minor updating
Rent Range: £525-575pcm

Address: 81 Hawton Lane, New Balderton, Newark. NG24 3DH

Property Type: 3 Bed Terraced House
Estate Agent: Alasdair Morrison
Condition: Needs Updating Throughout
Rent Range: £575-625pcm (once completed)
Yield: 5.77% (once completed)
Comments: Property is dated throughout, 3 bed end terrace on Stafford Ave in similar condition sold in May for £115k. This property seems to be very pricey for the size, condition and location.

Address: 12 The Brewhouse, Castle Brewery, Newark NG24 4AF
Asking Price: £120,000-£125,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Ground Floor Duplex Apartment
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles
Condition: Ready to Rent Service Charge: £3500 PA Ground Rent: £125 PA
Rent Range: £625-675pcm
Yield: 6.3% (inc SC and GR)
Comments: Very spacious apartment in a popular location, one parking space can cause issues and the limited parking. Have carried out 3 let only’s for this apartment with families being the most interested due to the size.

Asking Price: £110,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Terraced House
Estate Agent: Edlin & Jarvis
Condition: Ready to Rent

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

Standard

Here’s a look at the latest properties coming to market in NG24. I’ve added some comments and given you an idea of what you can expect rent wise if you go for it.

Address: 8 Welbeck Avenue, Newark NG24 1NB
Asking Price: £140,000
Property Type: 4 Bed Terrace
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Update Required
Rent Range: £625-675 pcm (once updated)
Yield: 5.78%
Comments: Last bought in 2013 for £95k, no photos of it at the same but i’m guessing not much has changed, maybe the kitchen cupboards? Cladding and worn carpets need to go. To obtain the top of the rent range suggested, take a look at this rental.

Address: 14 DeCaldwell Drive, Newark NG24 2JB
Asking Price: £145,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Terrace
Estate Agent: Purple Bricks
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575 pcm
Yield: 4.76%
Comments: Most recent 2 bed sale was Jan 17 for £124k, on the smaller side but a good starter investment. It’s a new(ish) build that’s been built within an old council estate, bought for £114,500 in July 14, hasn’t changed since.

Address: 17 Linseed Avenue, Newark NG24 2FL
Asking Price: £130,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Semi Detached
Estate Agent: Purple Bricks
Condition: Minor Changes
Rent Range: £525-575 pcm
Yield: 5.31%
Comments: Just dial down the bold colours to appeal to the most about of potential tenants, overall good little house with a bonus of a double driveway. Check out boiler age and consumer unit so you don’t get stung!

Address: 44 Side Row, Newark NG24 2JB
Asking Price: £130,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Terrace
Estate Agent: Purple Bircks
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £500-550 pcm
Yield: 5.08%
Comments: Ready to go with this one, carpets look fairly well kept and decor is okay. The kitchen is a little small so bare that in mind. Only bought in Oct 2018 for £120k, bedroom 1 carpet has changed and both have been decorated.

Address: 7 Barnby Crossing, Newark NG24 2NG
Asking Price: £119,950
Property Type: 2 Bed Terrace
Estate Agent: Now Homes
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-575 pcm
Yield: 5.75%
Comments: Again, another well presented house which has seen improvements since the current owners bought it in 2014 including taking down the old sun room to make a usable living space. A little out of town and would suit someone after a quieter life.

Address:Linton Close, Farndon, Newark. NG24 4TQ.
Asking Price: £140,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Semi- Detached
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 4.9%
Comments: Popular village location, nothing really to compare it to price wise. No EPC but would’ve thought it’s above an E, check before purchasing though. Off street parking and great sized garden.

Address: 4 Hilary Way, Balderton, Newark NG24 3PN.
Asking Price: £130,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Semi- Detached
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 5.76%
Comments: Purchased in Aug 2016 for £125k, no previous photos so unsure of changes, bold kitchen wall may put tenants off, would wait for feedback from viewings. Have been trying to sell since Nov 2018, something to factor in.

Address: 41 Charles Street, Newark, NG24 1RN
Asking Price: £130,000
Property Type: 2 Bed End Terrace
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles
Condition: Update Needed
Rent Range: £550-600pcm (assuming it’s done well)
Yield: 5.53%
Comments: Seems rather pricey for such a date property, #25 sold in Aug 18 for £136,500 and it was spotless. New flooring throughout, kitchen and bathroom ideally too. Would be better to cap off and get rid of the dated gas fires now rather than waiting for them to fail a gas cert. Tenants aren’t keen on bathroom access via a bedroom.

Address: 1 Harrisons Way, Newark NG24 1NS
Asking Price: £130,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Semi- Detached
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Unknown – no interior photos
Rent Range: £600-650pcm (assuming well presented)
Yield: 6%
Comments: This property was only built 5 years ago so i’m expecting it to be pretty modern. Backs onto the railway line which may put some tenants off. Good central location and off street parking.

Address: 6 Whitfield Street, Newark. NG24 2BT
Asking Price: £120,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Terrace
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £475-525pcm
Yield: 5.25%
Comments: Very colourful property, great starter with low bills, rent and council tax. Permit Parking great too. The colours may help or hinder it, would be inclined to play it by ear. #64 sold in May for £116k with a beautiful new kitchen and renovated throughout.

Address: 36 Smith Street, Newark, NG24 1RE
Asking Price: £115,000
Property Type: 3 Bed End Terrace
Estate Agent: Yopa
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 6%
Comments: Purchased in 2016 for £103k, living areas appear to be unchanged, no pics of bathroom or bedrooms. Low EPC, factor this in as government have discussed putting the minimum band up. Another good starter house, within Barnby Road Academy catchment area too.

Address: Worthington Road, Newark. NG24 3RE
Asking Price: £115,000
Property Type: 1 Bed End Terrace
Estate Agent: Martin & Co.
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £450-500pcm
Yield: 5.21%
Comments: Not much to compare it to, last 1 bed sold in Jan 17 for £85,500 but naturally the market has changed since then. Good starter property but consider that tenants may grow out of the property quicker than a 2 bed.

Address: 25 Goldstraw Lane, Fernwood, Newark NG24 3FD
Asking Price: £109,950
Property Type: 2 Bed Ground Floor Flat
Estate Agent: Alasdair Morrison
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £500-550pcm Service Charge: £607.27 PA Ground Rent: £135 PA
Yield: 5.96% (inc SC and GR)
Comments: Purchased in 2005 for £112,950, it would seem the owner sadly bought at the wrong time. The last 2 bed apartment sold for £95k in Aug 17. Fernwood is like marmite but it’s a good sized apartment with the bonus of outdoor space and private entrance too.

Address: 26 Goldstraw Lane, Fernwood, Newark NG24 3FF
Asking Price: £95,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Apartment
Estate Agent: Richard Watkinson & Partners
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £445-495pcm
Yield: 6.25% (not including SC and GR as not shown on ad)
Comments: Pretty sure the photos aren’t doing this justice, electric heating throughout so won’t have to pay for gas safety cert + boiler service each year. Can’t see any immediate issues, just a bit vanilla!

Address: 42 The Brewhouse, Castle Brewery, Newark NG24 4AF
Asking Price: £89,950
Property Type: 1 Bedroom Apartment
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £425-475pcm Service Charge: £1680 PA Ground Rent: £115 PA
Yield: 6.21% (inc SC and GR)
Comments: Popular development, bit of a pain to sell but very popular as rentals. Single allocated parking space sometimes causes problems and lack of visitor parking. Central location, gym and well kept communal areas make it desirable. Vendors have been trying to sell this for quite some time, it’s been relisted again.

Address: 19 Birch Road, Balderton Newark NG24 3DB
Asking Price: £89,950
Property Type: 1 Bed Cluster House
Estate Agent: Martin & Co
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £425-475pcm
Yield: 6.34%
Comments: Lovely kitchen but cosy throughout, parking and garden popular additions. Worth checking consumer unit on a property of its age, cleverly taken photos hide the charming storage heaters which aren’t overly desirable with tenants. #30 sold in Jan for £76k with an equally lovely kitchen!

So that’s this weeks selection, a couple of lovely properties in here, give me a call on 01636 343014 or even pop in to the office for a chat to let me know what you think.

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

Standard

Another chilly day in Newark and another week of properties to poke around! We’ve got 8 new potential investments this week from £120k to £150k in various styles and locations. I’ve added some comments and given you an idea of what you can expect rent wise if you go for it.

Address: Clarks Lane, Newark, NG24 2EF
Asking Price: £140,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Semi Detached House
Estate Agent: Purple Bricks
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 5.14%
Comments: Good little house, the garage has been removed for additional living space and good spot tenants working at Knowhow and NSK. Just note that properties in this area take longer to rent than others.

Address: 2 Friary Rd, Newark NG24 1LE
Asking Price: £150,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Terrace
Estate Agent: Newton & Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £545-595pcm
Yield: 4.76%
Comments: Really well presented house with no work required, lack of parking may put tenants off and the same with the downstairs bathroom. EPC E so bare in mind that regulations may change so you’ll need to spend money.

Address: Warwick Brewery, The Cavalier Building, Newark, NG24 1TL
Asking Price: £135,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom First Floor Duplex Apartment
Estate Agent: Belvoir!
Condition: Minor Work
Service Charge: TBC
Rent Range: £600-650pcm
Yield: 5.77% (exc service and maintenance charges)
Comments: Popular apartment block, no work required but the electric heating isn’t for everyone. Service and maintenance charges are often around £1k here so check before committing.

Address: 36 Pinfold Lane Balderton, Newark NG24 3LP
Asking Price: £125,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Mid Terrace
Estate Agent: Richard Watkinson & Partners
Condition: Minor Work
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 5.52%
Comments: A bit vanilla, pretty spacious but just not overly inspiring. Busy road with minimal parking. Lose the blue tiles in the kitchen, paint the woodwork white in the dining room if nowhere else to make it lighter (no window!). Could rent as is for £525pcm but you’ll get better and longer tenants if you spruce it up.

Buttercross Best Buy
Address: 2 Dovedale Terrace, Fernwood, Newark, NG24 3UU
Asking Price: £122,950
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Mid Terrace House
Estate Agent: Newton & Fallowell and Haart
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 5.61%
Comments: On with two agents, someone’s keen to get rid! They’ve only been in since March last year..hopefully it’s not bad neighbours. Bought for £117,500, it’s not changed aside from the master bedroom; we let the same property style on Rubys Walk last year for £575pcm.

Address: 6 Whitfield Street,Newark NG24 1QX
Asking Price: £120,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Terrace
Estate Agent: The Nottingham Estate Agency
Condition: Neutralise!
Rent Range: £500-550pcm
Yield: 5.5%
Comments: Purchased for £109k in 2015, no previous photos of the bathroom but it looks pretty new along with a bit of paint and marvel wallpaper! Big marvel fan but i’d suggest losing it and maybe update those kitchen tiles if you can. Seems cheap, last couple of two beds have sold for £132,500 and £120k in lesser condition.

Address: Apartment 301, The Tankard Building, Warwick Brewery, Newark, NG24 1TL
Asking Price: £130,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom First Floor Apartment
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Service Charge: £949.24 PA
Maintenance Charge: £100 PA
Rent Range: £600-650pcm
Yield: 5.95%%
Comments: Same as above, popular area and allocated parking. Good location for the train station. Honestly, i think the apartment above has a more appealing layout and is lighter.

Address: Charles Street, Newark, NG24 1RL
Asking Price: £125,000
Property Type: 2 Bed Mid Terrace House
Estate Agent: Purple Bricks
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £500-550pcm
Yield: 5.28%
Comments: Small! It looks very cramped but that could just be the size of furniture, the kitchen is so small and will put tenants off even though it’s modern. Tone down the wallpaper throughout.

So that’s this weeks selection, a couple of good potentialy investments here, give me a call on 01636 343014 or even pop in to the office for a chat to let me know what you think :).

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

Standard

After a busy few months, i’m back again with this weeks properties for sale in Newark! We’ve got 9 new ones to take a look at, i’ve added some comments and given you an idea of what you can expect rent wise if you go for it.

Address: 16 Vernon Street, Newark NG24 1PW
Asking Price: £148,000
Property Type: 3 Bed End of Terrace
Estate Agent: Richard Watkinson & Partners
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 4.86%
Comments: purchased in July 2017 for £135k in the same condition, the only thing thats changed is the paint colour so why is it £13k more? Well presented and ready to rent but be aware of the low epc, don’t to get caught out should regulations change!

Address:110 Grange Road, Newark NG24 4PW
Asking Price: £145,000
Property Type: 3 Bed Semi Detached
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 5.17%
Comments: Just a couple of grand more than No 118 that also had a small extension. The kitchen is too much for a rental, it needs dialling down…a lot to appeal to the max amount of tenants as does the rest of the house, think light greys and creams. No chain so may take an offer for quick sale.

Address: 7 Kennedy Walk, Balderton, Newark, NG24 3PJ
Asking Price: £134,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Terrace
Estate Agent: NOW Homes
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 5.37%
Comments: Well presented property with parking, No 6 sold most recently for £118k 2 years ago without the “storage” extension. No EPC yet so be sure to clarifying rating first, No 6 was EPC D so i’d expect similar.

Address: 14 Lindum Street, Newark, Notts NG24 1NH
Asking Price: £125,000
Property Type: 3 Bedroom Terrace
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 5.52%
Comments: So this property is being marketed for £1000 more than a two bed that sold in June, the two was lovely but you certainly get more for your money with this one. Lindum St is a dead end so minimal traffic, just neutralise those bold bedroom colours and order your To Let board!

Address: 35 Emmendingen Avenue Newark NG24 2FX
Asking Price: £125,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Terrace
Estate Agent: Belvoir!
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £475-525pcm
Yield: 5%
Comments: Overpriced and small. The equivalent property sold 3 months ago for £104k. Low council tax band, high epc and reasonable rental price will appeal to budget friendly renters.

Buttercross Best Buy
Address: 53 Sleaford Road, Newark, NG24 1NF
Asking Price: £125,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Terrace
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £500-550pcm
Yield: 5.28%
Comments: Really well presented house, No 47 sold in May 18 for £116,500 and the condition isn’t much different however the kitchen has been extended and it’s more contemporary. Careful with that low epc, if regulations go up to minimum D then you’ll need to spend a few pennies!

Address: 31 Side Row, Newark NG24 2JB
Asking Price: £119,950
Property Type: 2 Bedroom Terrace
Estate Agent: CPG Property
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £500-550pcm
Yield: 5.50%
Comments: Low council tax and rent, good first time rental for tenants working on the industrial esate. No 44 sold for £120k in October but not as nice, nothing to complain about this one, priced well, one off street parking space and ready to go.

Address: Hawthorn Crescent, Farndon, NG24 3TG
Asking Price: £80,000
Property Type: 2 Bedroom First Floor Apartment
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles
Condition: Required Renovation
Service Charge: £300 PA
Rent Range: £425-475pcm
Yield: 6.72% (exc work costs)
Comments: Most of the walls and carpets are neutral so we’re off to a good start and it has a garage (USP). Kitchen is functional as is the bathroom but they need updating for top rental price and one neutral colour throughout on the walls. I’d also recommend losing the fire surround, the curtains and painting any brown woodwork white.

Address: Lombard Street, Newark, NG24 1XG
Asking Price: £80,000
Property Type: 1 Bedroom Second Floor Apartment
Estate Agent: Whitegates
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £375-425pcm
Yield: 6.38%
Comments: Currently let out for £395pcm with Whitegates and is located above their office. No EPC rating on the advert, if it’s less than an E but mid tenancy you’re okay until 2020, after then you’ll have to get it there or face a fine.

So that’s this weeks selection, a couple of lovely properties in here, give me a call on 01636 343014 or even pop in to the office for a chat to let me know what you think :).
