A lot of work, but an incredible investment for the ‘w’right investor… introducing lesley wright house, sk3

Hi Readers,

I hope you got the very much intended pun above?  ‘W’right investor, Wright House?  Sorry, but I had to do it.

Anyway my latest scour of the property market for my lovely investors has brought this treasure to my attention – Lesley Wright House, Cheadle Heath, SK3.

It is a huge development and is currently a cluster house with 11 bedrooms within it and 6 bathrooms, over three floors and it most definitely requires a full refurbishment throughout.  This is obviously a huge project and I would estimate a cost of between £10-£20k per apartment created.  The sq footage of the building is 3648 which means you could probably get 7-8 one bedroom apartments out of it.  So the cost of the reburbishment would be approx. £150k.

With this in mind and the guide price of £430k it would mean a total outlay of £580k.  If each of the one bedroom apartments created was then rented for £575pcm as a minimum and there were 8 apartments that would give you a monthly income of £4,600 meaning your overall yield is 9.5%.  AMAZING!

The property is currently on the market with 2 agents, Edward Mellors and Harvey Scott, and I have posted the links to these Estate Agents below.

If you would like more information on this property or if you have any specific queries about Lettings, Investments or even if you have a property you would like advice on renting out then please do not hesitate to contact me on 0161 474 8668.

attention investors – a lovely house that would make a great buy to let!

Hello Readers!

I hear time and time again from Landlords that they would like to purchase more properties but with as little work to do as possible.  They want something new and modern so I have gone in search of this for you this week and found this property available to purchase for £260,000 with Reeds Rains in Offerton.

The property is located on Forbes Road and it is a new build, therefore the finish is immaculate and the colour scheme is modern.  The kitchen and bathroom have been finished to a very high standard.  There are 4 bedrooms, with a large master bedroom in the loft space with an ensuite.  There is a further family bathroom and a downstairs WC.

I believe that if this property was purchased by an investor it would be able to achieve £1,100 per calendar month, giving you a yield of 5.08%.  There would be no shortage of tenants as there are very few properties of this calibre or with 4 bedrooms around.  Large family homes are rare to find on the Lettings Market and so there is a demand for this type of property.  I always think investing in these types of property are sound investments too, as in a few years you are pretty much guaranteed your money back as it is a beautiful family home that people will be interested in!

If you would like more information on this property or if you have any specific queries about Lettings, Investments or even if you have a property you would like advice on renting out then please do not hesitate to contact me on 0161 474 8668.

Stockport’s The Allotment acclaimed in The Times as number one Vegan Restaurant in the country

Camilla Fayed wrote the below recently in The Times:

“Matt Nutter won the title of Chef of the Year last year at the Manchester Food and Drink Awards for his sophisticated take on vegan cooking at this simple bistro. Garden implements hang on the walls alongside a display of pickled, preserved and fresh produce, underlining that the menu is created from locally sourced, seasonal vegetables and fruit. The ten-course tasting menu is packed with creative dishes, including the signature shiitake mushroom parfait and a hibiscus, fennel and beetroot dessert”

This is another big win for Stockport thriving food scene!
