We’ve used a donut chart (excuse the American spelling) to illustrate the mix of properties that have sold in the last 12 months. Given the profile of the housing stock in the area, there’s nothing too surprising here, but it’s interesting to see how the different types of properties are represented in the local market.
The average unweighted sold prices of houses and flats have generally seen a steady incline over the last eight years. It’ll come as no massive surprise the houses are typically more expensive than flats but, the movements over time are nonetheless telling.

How often we commute to the office and how long it takes each day has major implications on where we all choose to live. While the ever-increasing use of technology has made it easier to work from home, most people living in Britain still take part in the ‘daily grind’, with a staggering three-million commuters now spending more than two hours to get to work.
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend despite the strange, stormy weather and the cold… winter is most defiantely on its way! I don’t know about you but I even went for the heating theromostat and got it going this weekend… it was just a little too cold for me!
I have some great news for you though… here at Julian Wadden we have been busy and have been instructed on this beautiful two bedroom terraced house on Ladysmith Street which would be a great home for a first time buyer but an even better Buy-to-Let Investment property, so for all you investors out there… look no further!
The property has a lovely modern reception room, complete with fireplace, a large neutral dining room and a new, contemporary kitchen to the rear of the property. On the first floor are two double bedrooms again, both neutrally decorated and a large bathroom with a three-piece bathroom suite. To the rear of the property and off the kitchen is a lovely lawned garden and the property also has side access off the street for the bins etc. As the vendor is living in the property i.e. it is owner occupied and not tenanted, the property has been refurbished recently and is very well presented and maintained – which I know will be very important factors for you when looking for a buy-to-let investment as busy people its great to be able to purchase something which is already complete and ready to let immediately on completion.
The property is on the market for £129,950 and needs no work at all. It will rent out for between £675pcm and £650pcm which will give you a very healthy yield of between 6 and 6.23%. We are going to be holding an open house at this property on 16th September 2017 so please give us a call in branch on 0161 474 8660 to book a viewing slot and to see the house in all its glory… and any questions give me a call directly!
You will be pleased to know that the works to the A6 bridge is going well and is still on track to complete on time. Stockport Council are providing a weekly update on the works on their website, and also diversion details which are very handy if, like me, it is effecting your daily commute.
Planning has now been submitted by the new owners of The Adswood Inn, to transform it in to a new 60 bedroom private nursing home. It is a building of great potential, set within Cale Green’s conservation area, and should produce a fantastic end product once the works are complete, tieing it in nicely with the stunning neighbouring period residential properties.
‘Ready to Grow’ is a new Government Investment Programme which has been set out to help and encourage people to try out new ideas in the market place, that would deliver real social value to the Stockport community. The scheme offers an investment of £5,000 to local entrepreneurs, voluntary groups, charities and private businesses, plus a ‘buddy’ to be paired up with to ensure maximum success.
