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.

The Pyramid comprises 86,000 sq ft of office accommodation arranged over five floors with 426 onsite car parking spaces. It has been brought to the market with an asking price of more than £4.5m

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!

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.
