High yield buy-to-let flat, SW9

I've just come across this chain free 3 bedroom split-level flat in SW9. A recent price reduction from £314,950 to £299,950 makes it an even better buy-to-let prospect.

Within easy walking distance of Brixton (Victoria Line) and Stockwell (Victoria and Northern Lines) and in a well maintained ex-local authority block, it would comfortably rent for £425 per week after a quick clean and a lick of paint. This offers an excellent rental yield of 7.4% - even better if you can negotiate to below asking price of course! Capital growth won't be as high as other property types, but where else can you get a 7.4% yield for under £300k? The option to then re-mortgage in the near future and draw finance to purchase another could see you operating a small portfolio in no time.
