What to know more about Inventories? What they are and why they are so essential… listen to Gemma Lowe’s Video

On a large number of the valuations that I carry out, Landlords ask me what an inventory is and why they actually need it.  I truly believe that this document is as important as a Tenancy Agreement as it directly affects the deposit.  I therefore decided to record a series of video’s about Inventories, what they consist of, why they are so important and what details they include.  I hope you enjoy my video, but if you would like to ask me any questions about this subject matter, or for more information about Lettings please call me on 0161 474 8668.

Thanks, Gemma

We are currently flooded with great buy-to-let investments… introducing Stream Terrace!

This week we have been instructed on yet another fantastic buy-to-let investment… they are quite literally flooding in!  This time it is on Stream Terrace, which is a lovely cul-de-sac in the Offerton area.  The property is close to the Portwood Road roundabout, so it offers great transport links onto the M60 and connecting motorways.  This makes this area particularly popular with tenants as does The Peel centre, with numerous high street stores!

The property is currently owner occupied, which I think is also evident just from looking at the pictures of the property as it is in immaculate condition and the decor is really beautiful.  The vendors have obviously taken a lot of care over the property and put a lot of money into its rennovation.  The property boasts a large kitchen/reception room, complete with dining area, as the whole of the downstairs has been opened up making it light, bright and spacious.  There is a large private, lawned garden to the rear of the property which is accessed through french doors.  On the first floor are two large double bedrooms and a large modern bathroom.

This property would make a fantastic buy-to -let investment for sure!  It is currently on the market to be sold for £139,950 and we believe that we could easily find you a tenant who would be looking to pay in the range of £695pcm and £725pcm, which would give you a yield of 5.96% to 6.22%.  If you would like any lettings or property advice then please do call me on 0161 474 8668 as I would love to be able to help you!

HAPPY INVESTING!!   Gemma Lowe, Lettings Manager
