A yield of 10.61% was what caught my eye, which is based on an already achieved rent of £460.00 pcm. It really is a steal for anybody wishing to invest as a part of their extensive portfolio or as a first investment.  Situated in the heart of the town centre the property is ideal for the single professional.

Today’s Buy To Let Deal – 3 Bedroom End Terrace House, Holford Avenue, Walsall, WS2, Yields 5.77%

A three bedroom end terraced house, Holford Avenue, Bescot, Walsall, WS2. This property is presented very nicely and with a very acceptable spec. It can be let as it currently stands though I would take a closer look at the rear garden, it could do with some sprucing up. The property type and high standard of spec makes it ideal for working professionals.This is further strengthened by its location about half a mile from M6 junction 9, ideal for commuting. For the frustrated footballer in all of us, Bescot stadium is but a short 10 minute stroll away. The return journey could be a little longer if the Saddlers lose that Saturday. For your weekly shopping supplies look no further than the large Morrisons superstore just around the corner. It has a petrol forecourt as well…Handy!

3 Bed Terrace in WS1 With a Super Yield of 6.3%


Lord Street, Palfrey, Walsall, WS1 is on the market with Homepoint – Walsall (01922 312002) priced at £99,950.  Full particulars are available on the link below:

It may not be the prettiest type of property or in the most affluent area of Walsall but there are many other pros which attracted me to this property.  The first point is the yield which at 6.3% is a good return in any investor’s book.  Also, the property seems like not much work is required (other than decoration preference).  Being in a community where family accommodation is highly sought after this should rent out all day with very little void periods in between tenancies.

Close to Bescot Retail Park, Bescot Stadium (Sunday Market), Morrisons, J9 of the M6, Palfrey Park and my favourite Kebab Shop!  Just on the market I would have no hesitation in recommending this to investors seeking a good return in perhaps an unlikely investment property.

If you wish to discuss the above or have any other property related matter you’d like to discuss, I’m happy yo hear your thoughts.  Please feel free to contact me or why not send me a link to the property you would like to discuss.

3 Bed Semi with Conservatory – Yield of 5.4%


Wrexham Avenue, Bentley, Walsall, WS2 is on the market with Love Your Postcode B’ham (0121 659 7776) priced at £114,950.  For the full particulars please click on the link to the agent’s advert below:

I have to say that I like the look of this property which is situated ideally near J10 of the M6.  It has plenty of plus points such as a nice fitted kitchen/ diner and a spacious lounge and conservatory downstairs.  A low maintenance rear garden and an upstairs bathroom which you sometimes do not get with these types of houses.  Not to mention the cul-de-sac location.  The only con is that the driveway is shared and I personally don’t like the argy-bargy of sharing.  However, there is plenty of space to make suitable future changes with a garden out front which looks like you would be able to fit several cars after adding a driveway.

2 Bed Maisonette with sitting tenants – potential yield of 6.4%

Thorncroft Way - 2 Bed Kitchen

Thorncroft Way, Yew Tree, Walsall, WS5 is on the market with Shipways (0121 659 1499) at £80,000

The Yew Tree area of Walsall has been the focal point of regeneration for the past 15-20 years now.  Development is still ongoing with new housing nearby which is a good indicator of potential capital growth.  This property was on the market in March 2015 with an asking price of £100,000 recently reduced to £80,000.  Looking at the pictures I would suggest that very little is required by way of improvement to the property and an astute buyer would look to negotiate further on the price.

Buying a house for the same price as a TV!

An elderly gentleman popped into the office a couple of days ago to ask about, of all things, inheritance tax!  He had read an article in our recent newsletter and wanted some more information so I put him in touch with our tax specialist to arrange a chat.  We got talking about investing in the Walsall property market and he reminded me that in his day, you could have bought a property for the same price as a decent second hand car would sell for today and that his father was buying property for the same price as a decent 50 inch LCD TV!
