The cheapest Buy-to-Let in The Heatons?

The property I am looking at today has got to be the cheapest Buy-to-Let in The Heatons by far…

Currently for sale with Julian Wadden in Heaton Moor is this studio apartment in a well maintained development in Heaton Mersey. It also benefits from ample residents parking.

Advertised at a guide price of £79,995, the property could rent for £500pcm, which is an incredible gross yield of 7.5%.

When you take into account the service charge of just £78 per month, the net yield is 6.33% which is almost unheard of in SK4 postcodes.

The property can be found online HERE.

Halloween Trail in The Heatons

The Four Heatons Traders Association are organising a Halloween Trail around the Heatons shops. This family free activity is sure to attract plenty of foot fall which is great for the local community. Businesses will be creating a pumpkin to display in their windows so that children and can see it and tick it off on their trail sheet. Each shop will be creating a pumpkin – either an actual pumpkin that is carved or one made & decorated from other materials. The displays will be proud of place in each of the windows.

1) It’s all about personality
We all have our own taste and style, or lack thereof and of course the desire to make our homes reflect our personalities is only natural, but personal tastes can become a sticking point when it comes to selling up. Maybe you love a particular football team, or you think that glitter is an absolute necessity in the bathroom, and if that is the case then the NAEA recommends redecorating before taking your home to market. Homes which are decorated in more neutral colours are typically the most saleable as buyers can envisage how their possessions would look in the space.
