Brilliant 5 bed house in Burley with over 10% return

This 5 bed terraced house set in the heart of Burley is in a prime location for professional renters. It's just off Burley Road which provides great links to the city centre. It's a short walk to plenty of convenience stores and is only a short distance from Cardigan Fields.

The property consists of 5 bedrooms and the kitchen, living room and bathrooms all look to have been recently done out so there's not a great deal of work, if any, that need to be done for it to be fully rented out.

The rents quoted in the advert are inclusive of all the bills but a property of this type in this great area could easily achieve a rent in the region of £350pcm per room without bills. If you managed to get the property for around £195,000 that would then give you a return of over 10% which would definitely be a great addition to your portfolio.

Potential 12% Yield in Burley

This 6 bed house on Stanmore Street in Burley is in a fantastic location for both students and professionals. It's located a few minutes walk away from Headingley stadium and in the other direction it's a few minutes walk away to Burley Road and all it's main transport routes. 

This is a very popular area and we have let many properties of this type in this area due to the high demand.  

In it's current condition and with the varied room sizes it might be a struggle to let all the rooms but by investing in a refurb you could make this property really stand out and ensure a fully let property consistently and achieve around £2,210pcm.  

Firstly, I would recommend altering the ground floor to convert this as the communal space with the living room and kitchen. I would then convert the large basement in to two bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bathroom. On the first floor where you currently have too many bedrooms squeezed in, I would suggest taking out the bathroom and toilet and create two larger bedrooms also with a Jack and Jill bathroom and you also have the option of installing another Jack and Jill on the top floor.  

For the refurb you would be looking at spending around £30k which if you managed to managed to get the property for around £195,000 that would give you a fantastic return of nearly 12%.
