Situated in a very desirable development on Mersey Road this immaculate one bedroom apartment is ready for new tenants to move straight in! Marketed by Philip James Kennedy for offers in the region of £185,000, the apartment could rent for £800pcm and would give an annual yield of just over 5%. Situated in between Didsbury and West Didsbury villages and with the benefit of a balcony and off-road parking this property is perfect for professionals.

If you haven’t already heard, first time buyers will NOT pay stamp duty up to £300,000 with immediate affect. We are still waiting on clarification if this applies to people who have already exchanged. This could save some first time buyers up to £5,000, which will certainly help people moving onto the property ladder.
As this will now bring more first time buyers out of the wood work it will increase demand at the lower end of the market place. The ripple effect of this will see demand for people to move up the property ladder, so larger family homes will also see the benefit.
This is great news to our local market and the UK property market as a whole, which is much needed due to the constant negative news stories surrounding the property market recently and Brexit causing uncertainty.
The other good news is funding for new builds will be supplemented by £44bn which should fuel a very positive housing market in 2018 and going forward.
If you would like any advice on how this may effect you directly please do not hesitate to contact me personally.
