Sandgate Buy to Let Property of The Week

Posted: 12/05/16 5:17 PM

Rather liking the potential of this one bedroom flat on The Crescent in Sandgate which has been placed on the market at £125,000 with an estimated rental value The Crescent 1bed Flat with View
of £600pcm.  The rooms are well proportioned and it ticks a lot of other boxes too, such as double-glazing, seaviews, a bay window in the lounge and gas central heating.

I did notice that that double-glazing might need a refurb and the wood-chip wall-paper needs stripping away to attract the best possible tenant, however the main qualities of a good buy to let are present and accounted for:

Finance – Negotiate them down to £120,000 and you’ll be looking at a 6% yield

Location – Two roads up from Sandgate Seafront, shops and bars a-plenty – not to mention the south-facing beach.

Attractiveness – Seaviews from the lounge and the bedroom

Proportion – Double bedroom and a lounge with room for a small dining table

The only downside of Sandgate is the parking, however many of the local renters work around the corner in the SAGA Pavilion (one of Folkestone’s largest employers)

Here’s the property on Rightmove – I think it would be worth a look…
