3-4 bed house in Chichester
Listed for sale on 05/10/18 @ £335,000
Now = £289,950
Rent = £1,200pcm
Yield = 5.0%

Last sold for £247,500 in 2008 (+17% in 10 years)

December can be a good time to sniff out a property bargain and I think this house in Donnington, just to the South of Chichester, could be a Christmas cracker!

It was listed in October for £335,000 and yet just two month's later has been reduced by 13% to its current asking price of £289,950. That's just 17% higher than when it was bought 10 years ago, yet it's in seemingly good condition. It's been listed as a three bedroom house, and yet the garage has been converted into another room - which could easily be classified as a fourth bedroom (and usually is as quite a few in this area have done the same).

With a modern kitchen and bathroom, additional cloakroom downstairs and a good-sized lounge with a conservatory, plus three double bedrooms and a reasonable single, you're getting a lot of square footage for your money. Potential tenants would feel the same, and £1,200pcm is therefore a realistic asking rent (the average for a true four-bed house is £1,600pcm). It means this freehold house could provide an excellent 5% rental return.

The property is on the market with Sims Williams and full details can be found on Rightmove via the following link:
