buy-to-let deal of the week on Charlotte Street, SK1

Hello Readers,

I hope you are all well and are getting ready for Spring coming?  I have seen a few snowdrops whilst I have been out walking over the weekend, so I have a spring in my step today as Spring is most definitely one of my favorite seasons.

So, with spring on the horizon and my new found cheer I decided to scour the market for a new investment deal for you all and I have come up with the goods!  I have found this lovely two double bedroom mid-terraced property in Stockport, SK1 so close to the Peel Centre and the Portwood Roundabout (making it very easy to access the M60 ring road) on Charlotte Street.

The property is available with Peter Anthony Estate Agents and is on the market at £119,950.  The property is in a great condition (from what I can see on the pictures) and looks as though it would require no work at all in order to house a tenant – the kitchen and bathroom both seem in good condition, clean and modern!  I believe a property like this should rent for £650pcm which would give you a yield of 6.5% which is a really good yeild and no money would need to be spent on the property so you would be able to get an income straight away.

For more information on this property or other buy-to-let investment opportunities, please do feel free to give me a call on 0161 474 8668.

Townscape Heritage Grant Which Will Help Rediscover The Underbanks

In early 2017 Stockport Council were awarded a Stage 1 of a Townscape Heritage grant for the ‘Rediscovering the Underbanks’ project.

Working with the local community and businesses, the project will help breathe new life into the area, celebrating its truly unique townscape. ‘Rediscover the Underbanks’ will support a range of projects aimed at transforming Stockport’s historic high street into a vibrant destination for businesses and visitors, whilst also telling the area’s stories to new audiences.

The grant scheme is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to refurbish buildings in historic town centres. Townscape Heritage projects aim to support communities and increase business confidence by investing in historic areas. This results in an attractive and lively environment to live and work.

The scheme includes improvements to property and the local area, skills training and community events designed to bring people into the area. They are now preparing to develop the Stage 2 Application to HLF in order to receive funding later in 2018. After the money has been awarded, the project will run for five years.

Type of property

Property types are a handy measure of the shape of the market in a local area. For example, areas with lots of flats tend to be urban in character because there is huge pressure on land. A large number of detached homes means that the area is suburban and not very densely populated.

Berretto Lounge Opens its doors at Redrock

Berretto Lounge, newest restaurant and bar, has thrown its doors open at Redrock Stockport.

Offering something for everyone, no matter what your taste in food, the new family-friendly and community focussed Berretto Lounge gives visitors yet another reason to visit Redrock.

Overlooking the public square that links Redrock with Prince’s Street, Berretto Lounge will serve everything from fresh, zingy salads to massive burgers with all the trimmings, making it the perfect place to head whether you’re looking for a coffee, a business lunch with colleagues or a lazy all-day brunch. 

Redrock has proven an instant success with visitors from across South Manchester since it opened just 11 weeks ago, with the cinema and restaurants all reporting that their visitor and trading figures are well ahead of predictions.

Visitors have flocked to the new leisure destination, and are loving the 10-screen The Light Cinema where they can relax and watch the latest releases from the comfort of their reclining chair, as well as the ever range of restaurants they find on offer, making it easy to see why it is so popular.

The opening of Berretto Lounge has created 25 new jobs in Stockport, for local residents who are at the heart of the investment work taking place.

Councillor Kate Butler, Stockport Council’s Cabinet Member for Economy and Regeneration commented: “It’s great to be able to welcome Berretto Lounge to Stockport, and I’m sure that they are going to prove very popular at Redrock.  I’m delighted that their opening has created so many new jobs for local people and want to wish Berretto Lounge and each of their staff the very best for the future.”

Jenny Arnot, Operations Manager, The Lounges, said “We’re delighted to have opened our Berretto Lounge and showing the locals how to lounge in style. The team are looking forward to becoming part of the community and will support local groups and initiatives wherever possible.”

Parking at Redrock couldn’t be easier.  Visitors can now access the new 360 space multi-storey car park directly from the A6, and this links to the neighbouring Merseyway car park.

Free parking is available for anyone coming to Redrock to watch a film at The Light by validating your ticket, as well as for all other visitors after 6pm every day.
