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.

Fullerton Road, Heaton Moor – REVISITED

Way back in July 2017, we filmed a video on a two bedroom terrace house on Fullerton Road, which was in need of much improvement.

Not long after the vlog, it was snapped up by a savvy investor who has been busy transforming the house, adding a single storey extension and loft conversion to create the most beautiful master suite, complete with en-suite shower room.

It has now returned to the market and is already generating quite a buzz!!

LIST YOUR RENTAL PROPERTY

The rental market is about to enter its busiest time of the year. Analysis from Dataloft Rental Market Analytics reveals that, over the last three years, on average 22% of each year’s tenancies have begun during August and September.

We estimate that this equates to just under 200,000 new tenancies which are set to begin over the coming weeks.

The flurry of activity at this time of year is a combination of students seeking accommodation before term starts, new graduates beginning new jobs and families looking to settle into new homes before the next academic year.

At the same time, there is also a surge in existing tenancies coming up for renewal around this time of year which further boosts competition for rental properties, should occupiers seek to move.

Give me a call to discuss your rental properties or any buy-to-let investments on 0161 432 1115.
