Clapham – close to Bedford whilst still feeling rural. Is a great location to get to the station or to go North. Professional commuters would probably snap a property up without hesitation.
Analysing the local market recently for a client. They asked about Clapham. We look after property in Clapham and never have any issue with re-lettings them when they come up. We noticed this one on the market with our colleagues at Connells , a spacious 2 bedroom apartment in the market for £145K . Rental wise you could probably squeeze out £750 per calendar month offering a healthy return of over 6%.
Lets dig a little deeper ! How has capital growth been here ? Well originally newly built a similar property in the block sold for £159,995. In 2015 Sold for £132,000. So in my opinion growth is not great – however its heading in the right direction. Although you may not feel too happy if you bought in 2005.
