Commuting distances

Measuring commuting distance might seem a little obscure but it actually offers a particularly good insight into the character of any local housing market. For example, commuter towns tend to really come alive at the weekends but are quieter in the week. Areas where most people work locally will have a stronger community feel day-to-day.

Fluctuations in prices over recent years

It won’t come as any massive shock that houses are generally worth more than flats in our area. However, when it comes to the movements over time, these two broad types of property do not always behave similarly. Here we see how flats and houses have varied in price.

the sun is shining on this investment opportunity with a 6% yield for a lovely three bedroom semi-detached house in offerton, sk2

Hello Readers!

In this amazing weather, its all about having a garden… a lovely lawned garden, with just the right amount of sun lasting throughout the day into the evening.  So, with this in mind I wanted to find you a property with a lovely garden to sunbathe and BBQ in, in the summer but something that also had an excellent yield and I have found just the property on Webb Lane, Offerton.

This property is currently on the market for a very fair price of £170,000.  It is fully refurbished and if the pictures paint a true representation then the property is finished to a very high standard and when purchasing this property as an investment it looks as though you would not need to lift a finger.  With a modern colour scheme throughout (noteably grey and white!) the property looks contemporary, fresh and very appealing – all the things that will really appeal to a tenant when they are looking to rent, and I think this would fly off the lettings shelves!

I wanted to bring you a property this month, not only with a good yield and a great garden, but also something with three bedrooms!  The market is quite saturated at the moment with two bedroom terraced houses as the investors have snapped them up, so something like this which is a little larger and well presented is just what the lettings market needs.  A beautiful, smart family home.

Purchasing this property for £170,000 and renting it out for £850pcm will give you a great yield of 6%.  So if you are looking for something a little different, this is your property!

For any questions about this property, other similar properties or if you are simply looking to invest in Stockport and would like some advice then please do not hesitate to contact me on 0161 474 8668.

Happy investing, Gemma Lowe

Three big reasons to bet on the Stockport property market

As you’re no doubt aware, there’s a lot of doom and gloom surrounding the national property market at the moment. For example, the Nationwide index showed that in June, annual house price growth had slowed to a five-year low. Our area hasn’t been immune; in the first quarter of 2018, there were 16 per cent fewer sales than the same period in the previous year.
