Buy to Let - Property of the Week 04/01/2018 - Where will your next investment be?

Posted On:

Once a week we will have a look through Edinburgh and the Lothian’s property for sale market and highlight a buy to let investment opportunity which offers good value, potential for a decent yield and a safe bet for good long-term tenancies.

Our search is completely independent and we hold no affiliations with any of the selling agents that happen to be marketing our chosen property.

The market has some really good opportunities available at the moment and it is a shame we can only pick one property.

Our property that we have chosen this week is yet another fantastic buy to let opportunity on Sloan Street, in between Leith Walk and Easter Road which is a popular area for couples and the young professional.

It's on the 2nd floor which is good for most renters. (Ground floor can be a turn off for security conscious tenants).

The property is new to the market and is currently being advertised at offers over £130,000.

We think you could achieve an annual rental yield of 5.4% - 6.3%.

Due to demand the property shouldn’t have any problems renting keeping void period’s to a minimum making this a good solid safe investment and great opportunity to bulk up a property portfolio.

The property is being marketed by Boyd Property and you can check it out by following this link

"Graeme has been a brilliant property manager for us. We have had little reason to contact him but when we have he has responded almost immediately and sorted any problems we have had. He has made our first rental experience in Edinburgh very enjoyable and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone."
