bankhall road, heaton moor

A rare opportunity to purchase a two bedroom buy-to-let house in Heaton Moor for less than £200,000. On the market with Julian Wadden is this two bedroom well presented terrace property. The demand for rental property in Heaton Moor is outstripping supply at the moment so this property wouldn’t be on the rental market for any length of time.

three bedroom family home, heaton mersey

I’d like to draw your attention to this three bedroom detached property recently sold, which would have been a suitable buy-to-let investment.

It was on the market with Philip James for an asking price of £250,000 and although at first glance it isn’t something you’d associate as being a good buy-to-let investment there are some benefits that your average two up, two down won’t always offer. The rental income would be in the region of £850 per calendar month which is a yield of just less than 5%.

Any tenants you’re likely to attract would be families who tend to let for longer periods of times with minimal void periods which is very important for some landlords. Other buy-to-let investments with fewer bedrooms may have a higher turn over of tenant due to the profile of tenant typically being young professionals without children. So if longevity of tenure is most important for you when considering your next buy-to-let investment then please get in touch, I’d be more than happy to point you in the right direction.

Damson owners have opened a new Tapas and Gin Bar ‘La Cantina’.

Already achieving rave reviews, the new Spanish resturant has taken over half of the original Damson site located on Heaton Moor road. Designed by Stockports ‘Apapantus Interiors’, the former bar area to the right of the building, has had a modern Spanish make over, with relaimed ceramic tiles, rustic wooden furniture and mismatched lighting.

The menu has an array of gorgeous tapas dishes and a tasty brunch offering at the weekends. The sumptuous food can be washed down with the help of a Spanish gin bar, serving spirits such as Sikkim and a wide selection of wines and beers.
