Investment Properties  

With experience in Sales, Lettings and New Builds we know a thing or two about investing in property. Property can provide both an income and cash flow, offer good rates of interest and all the time you won an asset that is likely to be increasing in value. It’s important that you chose the right kind of property for your strategy.

There are many ways and types of investing including:

  • Residential Buy to Let
  • Commercial or a commercial-residential mixed use property
  • Serviced Accommodation
  • HMO (Houses of multiple occupancy)
  • Holiday Lets
  • Buying to refurbish and sell on for a profit (flipping)
  • Building plots of land to develop and build on to either rent or sell
  • Converting commercial property to residential use

Top Tips

Helen Elworthy, the local director of Northwood Hatfield Ltd has experience in many of these areas and can advise on the pros and cons of each strategy and point you in the right direction.

  • Start close to home if you can, Hatfield and surrounding areas like Goole, Doncaster and Scunthorpe all form part of the Northern Power House and are great places to invest in. If you’re not local the knowledge of a local agent is essential to advise on the best streets and areas to buy in and which ones to avoid!
  • Identify where the demand is – jobs, transport links, schools, warehousing, amenities etc
  • Do your due diligence – Look at crime rates, anti-social behaviour, poor housing, high unemployment in particular areas or villages
  • Buy below market value (BMV) – yes it is still possible with the help of an agent to spot investments others haven’t seen or the potential in properties that other people may have overlooked
