Why our estate agents suggest Walsall is a great place to live

 

Estate Agents Walsall
Walsall is a large town in the Black Country, located 8 miles north-west of Birmingham city centre and within close proximity to Wolverhampton. It has become a desirable location to live and that’s why our estate agents in Walsall can sell most realistically priced properties within 30 days in WS postcodes.

Described as a lively and vibrant town

Walsall is a growing town with over 269,000 residents. In the 1970’s a new town centre was built and since then Walsall has had many urban regeneration programs. The council has invested in improving the town centre, Gigaport and Waterfront areas. A hospital, the college, part of the University of Wolverhampton, a large Tesco store and new housing have been built. Plans include new investment across the Borough, for example in a new Primark store in the town centre, a cinema and a college sport hub. Continue reading

Living-in-Telford_a-guide-from-our-estate-agents

You might be thinking about moving to Telford and wondering how living in this town is. Our estate agents in Telford can tell you a few things about life in this area and the advantages of buying a house there.

The town was founded in 1963 and named after engineer Thomas Telford, who was in charge of many rail projects in Shropshire. New residents came from Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Dudley and Walsall in the 1960’s and 1970’s, being those decades when major housing and commercial development occurred. In the latest years the shopping centre has been regenerated by new coffee shops, pubs and shops, a cinema and a bowling arcade.

Why be a Landlord?

Why-be-a-Landlord

One of the great things about being a landlord is that, provided that you have bought a suitable property and you have a good managing agent, the amount of effort required from you is quite limited.
Whatever your occupation, your income is forever limited to the amount of hours that you can work in a day.
With property, that limitation is not a consideration; some landlords with very large portfolios do very little, yet make more than most hard working individuals that I know.

The expansion of their property portfolio is often made possible by refinancing one property, which has risen in value, so as to release equity to fund further purchases. In turn the same applies to the newly purchased properties and so the business grows.

Sukhi Chall branch manager at Love Your Postcode advises some of their clients have seen 10% increases over the last 12 months on their two bedroom investments in the Midlands. In monetary terms that £10,000 on average in certain postcodes.
So where do you start and what do you look for?
