6.8% rental yield in Clapham South
This four bedroom flat in Poynders Garden SW4 has just come onto the market with Foxtons, at an asking price of £399,950.
Finished to a reasonable standard, with four good size double bedrooms, a large reception room, and within easy walking distance of Clapham South (Northern Line) and Balham (London Victoria), the property would make an ideal home for professional sharers.
After studying the floorplan and noting the lack of a bathroom photograph, it seems unlikely that it includes a shower - something most sharers would consider essential. A bathroom refit should be considered if you want to make the property as attractive as possible to prospective tenants. After making minor changes a weekly rent of £525 would be achievable, offering a 6.8% yield at asking price. The recent stamp duty reform also represents a saving of £2,000 when compared to the old 'slab' system.
