moovin festival 2019

Big names, booming basslines, boutique festival. Moovin Festival is back for 2019 and promises to get you dancing to a music lover’s mix of bass, funk, soul, reggae and house until the cows come home.

It’s the fifth year and from humble beginning the small cow barn party that started with a few hundred people has organically grown to completely selling out last year and has now well and truly established itself as THE  place to party on August bank holiday weekend.

How much does disrepair put off homebuyers?

When viewing a property, we’re all on the lookout for anything and everything that needs fixing or could use a bit of work.

While we’d all love to find a home that requires no work at all, chances are whenever you buy a property, it will come with its fair share of needed repairs.

NEW HOMES BY PROPERTY TYPE

Back in 2008/09, almost half (45%) of homes built in the year across England and Wales were flats, with the majority of these having two bedrooms. The shift in government policy a number of years earlier had resulted in higher density housing on brownfield and urban sites. Many developers were building with investors in mind, as investors flocked to buy city centre flats.

Fantastic yield in MARPLE

I wanted to let you know about an excellent Buy-to-Let investment that has caught my eye, right here on Stockport Road in Marple! The one bedroom property is ideally located with the train station, local amenities and local bars and restaurants right on it’s doorstep.

The one bedroom flat is currently on the market with Bridgefords and further information can be found here. I calculate, that even when considering the rent per calendar month below the £500.00 mark, the rental yield that could be achieved is a very healthy, 8%.

This is an ‘easy’ investment, so to speak as it does come with the added bonus of having a Tenant already in situ. If you want to discuss the further potential of this property with me or discuss further Buy-to-Let opportunities in the area, then please give me a call here at the Marple office on 0161 427 0733 or pop in for a chat.

THE MILLION POUND MARKET

There were 14,794 homes sold across England and Wales in the past 12 months priced at £1 million or more. This equates to just 1.7% of all sales, and just under £26 billion in value.

As in previous years, the tally of properties selling at or above the £1 million threshold was greatest in London, where over half (59%) of all £1m+ homes sold in the past year. This represents 1 in every 10 property sales.

BUY-TO-LET INVESTMENT OF THE WEEK – GRIMSHAW CLOSE

I have come across this great buy-to-let opportunity I wanted to share with you. This one bedroom, ground floor apartment is situated on Grimshaw Close – a quiet cul-de-sac in Bedbury. The apartment is currently on the market for £90,000 and I would foresee this obtaining a rental amount of £550.00 per calendar month which is a great 7.3% yield!

The apartment boasts a great location close to local amenities as well as a short commute into Stockport town centre and a short trip further into Manchester. The property itself has been completed to a high standard inside with a modern kitchen and bathroom. This also has the great use of external storage sheds and has access to a rear garden.

Properties like this would be a great chance for a first buy-to-let investment if you were thinking of taking the plunge, or a brilliant addition to your buy-to-let portfolio.

Either way, if you are interested in knowing more about properties such as this and having a chat about buy-to-let investments in this area, please feel free to give me a call on 0161 427 0733 or pop into the local office in Marple to see me!
