Hi All I was wondering if anyone has come across any browser extensions similar to Property Bee or Property Track, but specifically for easily estimating a potential yield of a property on a particular street? It would obviously be more difficult for rural locations, or areas where there is little precedent of existing yields, but for city research, with vanilla btl, I think this would be a really useful tool. e.g. researching different areas, and without having to need to keep switching from different tabs with Rightmove open, one with rent and one for properties for sale! If there is nothing worthwhile out there, I might try and work with someone to develop it myself. Would be good to hear people's thoughts. Thanks Ed Davidson
Hi everyone, At the moment my next investment is a long way off, however I have started to think about which area I would like to buy in. I have visited Liverpool on several occasions, my most recent visit was to see one of my mates who is currently a student there. He lived in the Kensington area and paid around £325pcm for the room in his HMO, along with 4 other people, so the landlord is receiving £1625pcm! As far as I'm aware bills were not included in this price and it was up to the tenants to pay their own bills. When I returned home I looked on rightmove and some of the houses in that area are selling for around £100,000- £125,000. This seems very cheap for the rent that these houses can achieve when let to students. If rented out the yields seem to be very attractive. From my understanding the main student area is around Smithdown Road, but I also see a lot of houses there for sale for around the same price. Does anyone have any experience of HMOs in Liverpool? Is the demand strong for student houses there? Thanks for reading, Matt
