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.

Asking Price: £145,000
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.

Address: 12 Pond Close, Fernwood, Newark, NG24 3RU
Type: 3 Bedroom Town House
Asking Price: £145,000
Estate Agent: Newton Fallowell
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £600-650pcm
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.

Address: Clipsham Close, Newark, NG24 3LD
Type: 2 Bed Semi-Detached
Asking Price: £132,950
Estate Agent: Haart
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
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!

Asking Price: £127,000
Estate Agent: Purple Bricks
Condition: Complete Renovation Required
Rent Range: £600-650pcm
Yield: 6.14%
Comments: Not for the faint hearted, brilliant opportunity for those who aren’t afraid of getting their hands dirty, 25k on renovations and you’d still get 5.1% yield. We let the exact same style of property on Shakespeare Street mid renovation for £650pcm, thanks to early advertising the landlords had no void period.

Type: 2 Bed Mid-Terrace
Asking Price: £112,500
Estate Agent: CPG Property Ltd
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £475-525pcm
Yield: 5.6%
Comments: Colourful 2 bed home within Barnby Road Academy catchment area making it great for small families, good first time investment as it’s reasonably priced and little work is required but don’t get drawn in by the converted loft space, you need to check the legalities of the staircase.

Buttercross Best Buy

Type: 1 Bed Ground Floor Apartment
Asking Price: £95,000
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles

Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £500-550pcm
Yield: 5.74%
Comments: Ideal for a first investment as very little cosmetic work is required, it’s close to the ever desirable Barnby Road School for families although Number 6 is currently sold stc for £110,000 in the same condition, it’s worth a shot!

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: 6 Village Way, Farndon, Newark, NG24 4SX
Type: 2 Bed semi-detached bungalow
Asking Price: £148,950
Estate Agent: Richard Watkinson
Condition: Ready to rent
Rent Range: £575-625pcm
Yield: 5%
Comments: Located in a sought after village tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac, this bungalow is on a generous plot with a garage, off street parking and a sun room in the garden, ideal for an older couple as everything is on one level and it’s a short distance to the A46 and A1. Number 8 sold in Aug 2016 for £138,000 with a conservatory and modern decor, so either they got a bargain or this property is slightly overpriced?

Address: 60 Eton Avenue, Newark, NG24 4JF
Type: 3 Bedroom semi-detached
Asking Price: £140,000
Estate Agent: Now Homes
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £625-675pcm
Yield: 5.8%
Comments: Eton Avenue is within Hawtonville, a short distance from William Gladstone CofE Primary School and the new active4today leisure centre, the size and location of this property makes it ideal for families big and small. It’s being loving refurbished to very good standard so there wouldn’t be any modernisation required and someone could move straight in; as for the price, number 52 sold in Sep 2016 for same amount and it had also been refurbished throughout, and this property has an additional utility room, sun room and work room so it’s extremely hard to pick fault with the asking price.

Address: 26 Witham Close, Newark, NG24 2HD
Type: 3 Bed semi-detached
Asking Price: £145,000
Estate Agent: Martin and Co
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 4.96%
Comments: This property is tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sec off Strawberry Hall Lane, it’s a good spot for the A1, town centre and both train station which are all a short distance away. It needs very little doing to it, if anything, and as for the price it’s hard to judge as properties don’t sell in this area very often; the last 3 bed semi sold for £121,500 in July last year and prior to that was £125,000 July 2015 but both were dated in comparison to this one.

Buttercross Best Buy

Address: 62 Cranmer Road, Newark, NG24 4ET
Type: 3 Bed semi-detached
Asking Price: £134,950
Estate Agent: Now Homes
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £600-650pcm
Yield: 5.7%
Comments: This house is just a couple of streets away from Eton Avenue and has also been renovated to a very high standard, the current owners purchased the house in October 2015 for £102,500 but you can certainly see where the money has been spent. It is slightly smaller than Eton Avenue and doesn’t have the additional utility room which is very popular with families; nothing else on the street has sold for anything close to this value as the last several sales have been on terraced houses for less than £80,000. Based on what’s on the market at the minute the property is priced highly for the area however the maintenance costs would be low due and the recent refurbishment certainly has the wow factor, knowing what the current owners paid for it, it never hurts to make an offer!

Address: 75 Grove Street, New Balderton, Newark, NG24 3AS
Type: 3 Bed mid-terrace
Asking Price: £124,950
Estate Agent: Jon Brambles
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £550-600pcm
Yield: 5.7%
Comments: Balderton is popular area for couples an families, it’s a short distance to the A1 and there are two good schools within walking distance. This property has been refurbished to a high standard with 2 double bedrooms, an en-suite off the master room and a striking red and white kitchen, it would require little maintenance and could be marketed as soon as you have the keys. The last 3 bed that was sold on the street was refurbished to very high standard for £120,000 in May 2016 so do you think it’s worth the extra £5k?

Address: 23 Hatton Gardens, Newark, NG24 4BU
Type: 3 Bed mid-terrace
Asking Price: £119,950
Estate Agent: CPG Property
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £500-550pcm
Yield: 5.5%
Comments: This house has been finished to an impressive standard with a great modern kitchen, light and bright living spaces and has a good sized rear garden, it was bought by the current owners in 2013 for £100,000 however another 3 bed terrace hasn’t been bought since. The most recent purchase on the street was an extended 2 bed, number 45, in Nov 2016 for £115,000 so even though it doesn’t appear that the current owners have added anything to the property, i think they’ve managed to make money on it regardless!

Address: 42 The Ivies, Farndon Road, Newark, NG24 4SR
Type: 2 Bed semi-detached
Asking Price: £137,500
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £525-575pcm
Yield: 5%
Comments: Good location for commuters and just a short drive to St Peter’s Crosskeys CofE Academy and William Gladstone CofE Primary School making it ideal for small families and couples alike. This property requires very little work and has a nice addition of a driveway and a garage, the last 2 bed semi on the street was number 8 which sold in Feb 2016 for £127,500 and is currently to let for £575pcm making 5.4% yield, honestly though, i just question whether you get much property for your money?

Address: 14 Wright Street, Newark, NG24 1PJ
Type: 2 Bed mid-terrace
Asking Price: £99,950
Estate Agent: Winkworth
Condition: Ready to Rent
Rent Range: £450-500pcm
Yield: 6%
Comments: In the last 2 years, 5 properties have sold on this street ranging from £83,000 to £99,950 with small differences in each one; the last one sold in Jan 2016 for £94,000 in a very similar condition so there could be some room for negotiation. It’s just a stones throw away from the very desirable Barnby Road Primary School with just a 15 minute walk into town and less than a mile to Newark North Gate, this little house would be perfect for a couple or a small family and it’s ready for them to move straight in to!
