For sale with Goadsby is this Two Bedroom first floor Apartment within Carnival House, Jubilee Close. Whilst it may be situated a little way out of town, these flats offer extremely well proportioned accomodation for the money as well as offering off-road parking and a regular bus service into the City Centre. We sold a ground floor flat within the same development just last year for a figure of £154,000 which we then let for £725pcm which means that for this flat’s asking price, you’d be looking at a potential return of 5.4%.

Quidhampton Development Opportunity £165,000

Calling all developers and cash buyers!

I thought i’d start the week with something a little different. Whilst this three bedroom property is of Reema construction and therefore only available to cash buyers, requiring modernisation throughout, it boasts a lot of potential with well proportioned rooms and a fantastic location, making a perfect development/investment opportunity. Having done some research on the sale history in the area, I discovered that this property within the same location sold in 2015 for a figure of 195,000, meaning that at the properties current asking price, there’s definitely some scope for profit depending on the quality of the refurbishment

Alternatively, at the current asking price with a potential rental value of around £800pcm, you could be looking at a potential yield of around 5.8%! Either way, this property certainly has bags of potential.
