With rental properties in high demand at the moment Colchester is becoming an investors dream, producing good solid yields & quality long term tenants. 

Since December the rental market has been steadily building a head of steam, we are finding more tenants staying in properties for the long term these days, people can't afford the larger deposits for a mortgage even with the governments "help to buy" incentive. 

With rental yields in Colchester between 4.5% - 5.5% it seems like a very wise investment based on a couple of simple factors:

  • Long Term Tenants
  • Solid income
  • Property prices are rising 

Colchester is becoming more popular with the professional tenant wo works full time Monday - Friday and home with the family at weekends, the costs of rentals in Chelmsford and surrounding areas have increased in recent months, meaning people are moving further away from the big smoke.

 Below you will find a few examples of rental yields in and around Colchester:
