three bedroom semi in a desirable south reddish location!

Bridgfords estate agents have for sale a recently refurbished property on Southcliffe Road in South Reddish. The property is on the market for offers over £140,000 which seems to be an attractive price taking into consideration the location and also the level of works completed inside. From the images available on rightmove the only areas that may need looking at would appear to be the front and rear gardens. I think a rental figure of around £800pcm is very achievable and would provide a yield of just under 7% which is very attractive.   I would expect a property like this to attract attention from people searching for a family home and also investors so best to register your interest as soon as possible.

development opportunity in central reddish location

Spencer Harvey estate agents have for sale on Wordsworth Road in Reddish a two bedroom, semi detached property on the market for £129,950. This property would make a fantastic development opportunity providing an option to either let or sell once completed. Inferred from the pictures available on rightmove the works required all seem to be cosmetic so shouldn’t amount to too much financially. I would expect the property to be worth a re sale value of £150,000 once finished and i would expect the property to let for around £650pcm, the yield achieved would be dependant on the amount of money spent on the refurbishment.

Has flexible working changed the Reddish property market?

Defining the modern working week in 2018 isn’t a straightforward process. As we embrace technology, the lines between daily commutes to work and working from remote locations become less transparent. From a property perspective, this means people with flexible working patterns can be more selective about the location of their next home. But what does this mean for Reddish?

ideal buy to let in move in condition!

Situated on the very popular road Thornley Lane North, Purple Bricks have for sale this two bedroom terrace house. The property is on the market with a guide price of £125,000, from the photos i wouldn’t expect the property to require any works being done before it could be put on the rental market, however you may wish to neutralise the decor to appeal to a wider market. I would imagine a property like this would get snapped up fairly quickly for a price between £675pcm and £700pcm in turn providing a yield of between 6.48% – 6.72%.

exciting development opportunity in reddish

Marketed by Edward Mellor for a guide price of £95,000 is this three bed semi on Fovant Crescent, the property is to be sold at auction on the 13th March 2018. Given the price & lack of internal photo’s i would imagine the property is need of some renovation works. The property is situated on a really popular road within Reddish and comes with a large rear garden. Once renovated properties similar to this one let between £675pcm – £725pcm depending on the final finish. I suspect this property will receive interest from both investors & people searching for a family home.
