Christmas at Juno

Local cafe Juno are opening their doors to anyone on their own this Christmas Day. Located on 147 Heaton Moor Road, the free Christmas lunch is available at 12.30pm.

Having spoken with Yashar at Juno, he’s overwhelmed with the support from local residents and businesses, which includes Le Charcuterie who have kindly donated a free turkey. 

Having been in touch with Age UK, 10 people have been booked in so far.

A real amazing gesture which I’m extremely happy to promote. It really underlines the amazing community spirit The Heatons has to offer.

*NB – Transportation can be provided if necessary.

Distance to work

How far people travel to work says a lot about the nature of an area. For example if people live and work in market towns there is likely to be a lot more community spirit to experience in daily life. When people are travelling further afield to work, they effectively spend their days on two different communities. It will be interesting to see if community spirit increases as people work more from home.

Average property prices by type

Quarterly analyses of house price movements are a great way of seeing year-on-year changes. This chart is a particularly useful way to look at the market because it strips out seasonality, which can distort things and lead us to show things that might be inaccurate.

Annual sales levels split by property type

In this analysis we’ve looked at how sales of property types have stacked up over time (literally!). For each of the last eight years we show what number of sales are accounted for by flats, terraces, semi-detached and detached homes. This analysis is very useful because it shows not only the total number of sales, but the types of properties it comprises.

2018 set to be a year of opportunity for the The Heatons property market

As one year ends and another begins, we thought we’d take a look at what’s happened in the The Heatons market over the last 12 months, and what a year it has been. It’s true that something of a ‘cold front’ has been moving across most of the country, but the strong fundamentals which underpin the SK4 market mean that we’re well placed to weather any storm.

One of the first checks lenders make when you apply for a buy-to-let mortgage is whether the rental income is high enough to cover the repayments and associated costs of letting the property.

Although it can vary, lenders usually want rental income to be 125-130 per cent of the amount you repay on the mortgage each month. Knowing this, it makes sense for you to check these figures for yourself, before you apply, by following these steps:
