Listed for sale on 11/02/20 @ £240,000
Now = £220,000
Rent = £995pcm
Yield = 5.4%

In an interesting twist from last week's buy-to-let deal  this three-bedroom house on the same street has been reduced by £20,000 to supercede last week's property pick as the 'cheapest three-bedroom house for sale in Chichester'. That sharp reduction to £220,000 has come just a couple of weeks after first being listed at £240,000. I mentioned the property in last week's write-up, and it's likely this price war has been instigated by the similar properties in the same street being listed - particularly when you note they're empty and thus the sellers are probably keen to sell.

Whereas last week's buy-to-let deal was in great condition though, this week's is in need of some refurbishment. Once done of course they're effectively the same property, and in a way having a 'doer-upper' to make new again is better than having a property in 'pretty good' condition. The fact it is now £15,000 cheaper than the other available property is also a bonus, especially when you consider these houses have sold for £240,000 - £250,000 in recent times.

As a three-bedroom house at the lower-end of Chichester's property market, you can still expect to let it for £995pcm. That equates to a 5.4% rental return based on the asking price, although bear in mind there's some money on top of that to bring it up to a great condition again.

The property is on the market with Cubitt & West and full details can be found on Rightmove via the following link:
