9% Great Yielding Flat in Fegan Road

Posted on 21st June 2014 in Buy-to-let Property, Plymouth Property

Stuart Donnington from the Property Group in Plymouth comments on his views of the Buy-to-let market in Plymouth.

I have come across the following little gem courtesy of Connells. They have a 2 bedroom flat in the Fegan Road, St Budeaux area with a asking price of £70,000.The flat might not be to everyone’s cup of tea, and ture capital growth might not be that great, but you should be able to let that flat to LHA tenants for the 2 bedroom LHA rate which is £525PCM. The flat itself internally looks smart and no work would be required in order to get the property ready to let. The flat was last sold in 2005 for £71,500.

If you can get the property for a little cheaper at around the £65,000 your looking at a great yield of 9.7%, even at the £70,000, the yield would be 9%, still not bad.

I know, I know there is a little more to property investment than great yields, some capital growth would be nice too.

Hopeful First Time Buyers Increase

Posted on 3rd September 2012 in Uncategorized

Some 27% of people planning to buy a home in the next 12 months will be doing so for the first time – and statistically, most will be graduates.

The proportion is up from 23% a year ago, but is still well below the 40% seen pre-credit crunch, says Rightmove.

Of those intending to become first-time buyers, seven in ten are university educated – 39% have a degree and 30% a postgraduate degree.

Most (62%) of prospective first-time buyers are currently living with their parents.
The Rightmove research suggests that graduates are the most likely to have a larger deposit, and more likely to have parental assistance to help them buy.

Regardless of education, the biggest concern for all first-time buyers was raising the deposit (33%), followed by finding a suitable property (29%).

Rightmove took its data from 18,436 potential home buyers in England, Wales and Scotland in the first two weeks of July.
