how often do people move property in the local area?

More than six-million people move home every year according to national census figures. These numbers reveal we are changing homes at a faster rate than ever before with people in the southern half of the country the most frequent movers. Conversely, those living in the North East, North West and Wales move home less frequently than anyone else in the UK.

The average lifespan of a British person is now 81.5 years; during this lifespan people will move home about six times. With 14 years, the South West leads the way for the shortest amount of time people live at one property while the longest amount of time people stay at their properties is in Wales where the average is 23 years.

1 Bedroom flat on reddish road with a yield of up to 8%

A great investment opportunity which has recently been reduced. It is located in South Reddish and should easily attract a tenant with its close proximity to Stockport and transport links.

The property is modern inside and well proportioned throughout. Having only 1 bedroom will restrict the applicants to couples or singles but with rent for a 2 bed terrace currently anywhere from £575-£675 the price alone would attract plenty of interest. The property is being advertised by ourselves and the details can be found on Rightmove using the below link.

2 Bed Semi on Greg Street with a yield of 7-8%

This 2 bed semi detached house my attention today because of the asking price of £95,000.

The property is a good size two bed with plenty of outside space which would be ideal for tenants with small families, it is also in the popular location of South Reddish which makes it ideally placed for local schools and transport links. The property should easily command a rental income of £650+ Per calendar month giving a yield of over 8%. From the pictures the property is in need of some quite substantial work to bring it up to a lettable condition, but assuming a cost of around £15,000 for the work you would still be achieving a yield of over 7%.

Length of residents’ working day

Areas which are home to residents who work long hours tend to have something of a split personality. The people you might see on the street on weekdays are often very different to those at weekends. The crucial benchmark is 49 hours per week. If you’re working that many hours or more, remember no one on their death bed ever wished they’d spent more time in the office!
