Fantastic Buy to let Opportunity In Gorton

Sanderson James have added a property to the market today that I think would be an ideal buy to let investment. The property is a Two-bedroom mid terrace in Gorton, close to Debdale Park and the Reddish Boarder. It has come to the market with a guide price of £100,000.

The property appears to be in good condition with a modern feel throughout. The property is of interest as it has two good sized bedrooms, also a utility space to the rear of the property which is always a bonus. The bathroom and kitchen would benefit from an update, but not in bad condition.

This property in its current condition would receive the expected rent between £600-£625pcm.

Give me a call to talk further; 0161 474 8668.
