£550,000 to spend in Rickmansworth. What will that get me?

£550,000 to spend in Rickmansworth. What will that get me?

I was approached recently buy local gentleman who was thinking about putting some money into property. He had a cool £550,000 in the bank doing him no favours as money in the bank is very much a depreciating asset at the moment. He’s a clever guy, runs his own business and is very successful but this was his first […]

Can’t go wrong with this staple WD18 investment property…..or can you?

Can’t go wrong with this staple WD18 investment property…..or can you?

Check out this staple 2 bed terrace investment property being marketed by Warren Anthony. Terraces are extremely popular with investors in Watford.  Yes – they cost a little bit more than the 2 bed flats but you get the benefit of having no service charge, owning the freehold and being able to flog it for […]

3 Bed Terrace – Brightwell Rd – 5.2% yield

3 Bed Terrace – Brightwell Rd – 5.2% yield

Good little invest property here being marketed by Warren Anthony and with prices going in one direction it’s becoming harder to find local investments that come in below the stamp duty threshold. If you can secure this property for £250,000 then I think you would do well out of it. In current condition it would […]

Nice Studio Flat – Looks like a Repo – 7.2% yield

I came across this nice little studio flat in North Watford being marketed by Connells today.  The asking price is £114,950 and with a little work it would rent for up to £695 per month giving it a yield of almost 7.2%. It needs a little tarting up by the looks of things, including paint, […]
