An affordable one bedroom apartment for the first time investor

Here is another recent affordable purchase that would have suited a first time buyer or investor.

This one bedroom apartment is located on Tennyson Avenue in the popular Houghton Hamlets area and came with an allocated parking space. Tennyson Avenue has a mix of small apartment blocks and good quality housing with easy access to the M1.

This 1 bedroom apartment which was built in 1988 sold in March 2013 for £79,000. It was previously purchased in June 2007 for £97,000 and in February 2001 for £43,000.

As a Landlord or investor you will be interested in the rental figures. In June 2012 a similar 1 bed apartment in the same development was let for £495 pcm which would give you a base rental yield of 7.5%. Bearing in mind the current market conditions and demand for good quality apartments you could expect to achieve a rent on this property of £525 pcm giving you almost 8% base rental yield.

The base rental yield does not include Ground rent and service costs which are unique to each development.
