Today’s Buy To Let Deal yields 5.50% is a 2 Bed Terraced house with Loft Conversion, Walsall, WS4.

A 2 bedroom terraced house in the Rushall area of Walsall, WS4, currently marketed by Purple Bricks (0121 721 9601). Plenty of photos here showing the property off at its best. The decor is all neutral and does not need anything doing to it from what I can see.

Without an internal viewing it is impossible to assess if anything needs to be done as regards upgrades, but as it stands it looks good to go. You could expect a rental of £550.00 pcm.   Therefore, if the property sells at the current asking price will result in a yield of 5.50%.

How much are Walsall Buy-to-Let Yields a year?

How much are Walsall Buy-to-Let Yields a year?

Purchasing your first Walsall buy to let (BTL) property is not the same as buying one to live in.  You have to employ a completely different set of tactics, methodology and mind-set.

The main difference is when purchasing your own property, you may well pay a little more to get the home you and your family want, and are less likely to compromise.  When buying for your own use, it is only human nature you will want the best, so that quite often it is at the top end of your budget; because as my parents always used to tell me – you get what you pay for in this world!

Yet with a Walsall buy to let property, if your goal is a higher rental return – a higher price doesn’t always equate to higher monthly returns – in fact quite the opposite.  Reasonably priced Walsall properties can bring in higher monthly returns.  Most landlords use the phrase ‘yield’ instead of monthly return.  To calculate the yield on a buy to let property one basically takes the monthly rent, multiplies it by 12 to get the annual rent and then divides it by the value of the property.

Tameway Plaza - Walsall Town Centre
Tameway Plaza – Walsall Town Centre

If you follow the Walsall Property Market News like I do (not just the residential) then, you will be well versed with past, present and planned future developments.  Amongst the proposed £90m transformation of the town centre recently it has been announced that more than 100 jobs will be created by developing a piece of derelict land back into commercial use with a further £6.9m investment.

In recent years we have had the new 24hr Tesco, the Primark development (which was extremely busy on Saturday), The Quarter has just been finished with Poundland and B&M taking up occupation anytime now and there are plans to revamp The Saddlers Centre!  So, with all this happening around the commercial side of property “what about residential” I hear you ask…?

What if…the UK Population lived on One Street??!!

What if…the UK Population lived on One Street??!!
What if…the UK Population lived on One Street??!!

In my line of work I meet many property entrepreneurs…from budding enthusiasts…to seasoned developers.  Meetings whether face-to-face, by phone, Skpe or email lead on to many interesting conversations some of which, I write about.  I don’t profess to have all the answers but I like reading and learning about property.

This sometimes takes me away from our local Walsall property market, to conversations about our region and the national geographic area as a whole.  My expertise is in the local area where I ‘ply’ my trade to ‘eek’ out a living.  Anyway, I thought I would share something different with you this week, my blog reading friends, which I found really interesting and entertaining at the same time…hope you do too!

If the population of the UK were condensed into just a single street, more than a third of us would live in a semi-detached house worth £207,000.
